My husband was gone this week. Thankfully, he won’t be gone for an extended period of time again until June.
However, this week went pretty well. While I know that I need time by myself quite often (which I don’t get while he’s gone), I also realized this week that I must occassionally need periods of intensity, stress, and lack of sleep, because I really heard clearly from the Lord this week on a particular area. It wasn’t that I had been praying about this issue, but in the heat of “battle” of holding down the fort, educating the kids, dealing with financial issues, being a taxi for the kids’ many activities and navigating sibling issues, God made His voice heard clearly. That is always a good thing, and in this case, it wasn’t even a hard word. It was something, that with His strength, I can do. Whew!
So, I lead forward on through the weekend (a glorious weekend of great weather, scrapbooking, and kids’ activities), actually looking forward to the coming week when I can begin implementing some new strategies.
I pray that something has happened this week or this weekend that gets you ready for this coming week!
This week I am thankful for:
Scrapbooking and the joy that I have in completeing a page.
The smell of freshly baked cookies from my son.
College scholarships for my eldest.
Getting a lot accomplished and things checked off my lists.
Listening to my daughter singing around the house.
