worn out.

I've got a lot on my plate lately, nothing to complain about, but enough to fill my mind and heart with a whole lotta "ahhhhhhhhh's", "jeeeeeeze's" and a few "owwwww's" on the side. 

But here's the biggest dilemma of all: by the time it's all circled round and round in my brain, after I've cried about it, ached a little more, tried to understand it and process it on my own, asserted my own self back on track "Whew whew, I can do this, it's all good", only to kinda fall apart again, getting frustrated at the smallest thing... I've worn myself out and the thought of going through it all again in prayer sounds exhausting. 

I was listening to iTunes and the song Breathe by Michelle Branch just came on. Kinda fitting, eh? I usually tend to round these posts out by saying "So here's what we can do, let's pray first!" or some easy obvious answer. But I think it's ok if we don't always have the answer right in front of us... although yes, this one is quite obvious, but what do we do with the natural tendency to always want to fix it on our own. There's more to say here, for sure, but I'll come back to it later:) It's a beautiful day today and I'm going outside with my dog to breeeeeeathe! 

And...  as always, God is so good and so full of LOVE and GRACE.

Glad to know I'm not the only one feeling like this !! Hope your day gets better, and yes, its beautiful outside. Too beautiful to be working inside as I am ! Time to take my daughter to the zoo for sure !

Liz! I totally know exactly where you are coming from. Sometimes it seems like we are ok and have processed everything and then the cycle begins again immediately. I am praying that God brings a calm in the midst of all the craziness.

God is so gracious and good and he never gives us more than we can handle.

See if you can get on my blog again. I thought it was open and can't figure out where the add people part is. I usually can figure out these techy/computer type things rather quickly.

Hope you enjoyed the beautiful weather this morning God has given us with Kenai!
