I'm having...iced tea with lemon on this hot, humid day. I'm sitting in my special spot, trying to stay cool and wondering what happened to our two weeks of fantastic weather. HHH (Chicago term = hazy, hot, + humid) reared its head today, and will be here for our garage sale tomorrow, too. Figures. *crosses eyes*
I'm feeling...good physically, overwhelmed mentally with everything that I can't get done as usual. Why? I ask myself. Argh. It's so frustrating to have everything organized, know what I'm supposed to be doing, and life's schedule throws everything into this whirlwind I'm supposed to be able to handle. More on that following...
On my mind...the above issue, obviously. I tend to slow down during those humid summer days, but I need anything but a slow-down right now! Garage sale this weekend with two other dear families, an all-day Labor Day cookout to prepare for and attend (which will be fun, it's just the crazy prep part), then SCHOOL officially on Tuesday. I've been spending my days trekking to various college campuses with Danny, while trying to get things done (sure wish I had a laptop). And poor Thomas is stuck doing whatever schoolwork he can without me at home. He needs a computer to watch his math DVDs, and I don't have our history curriculum yet, or Biology lessons sorted out yet. I hate to do all this on Sunday afternoon, but it looks like that's the only time I'll have to "get it all done." Sigh.
I leave you with...well, it's more for me than for you. I'm so sorry about this crazy post! I guess you now get to see me all unglued and coming apart at the seams. I'm being all Martha right now, running around trying to figure out how to do it all. But the Lord's calming hand of mercy touches my heart, and I know He has it all under control. I leave it with Him.
Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden,
and I will give you rest.
Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me,
for I am gentle and humble in heart,
and YOU WILL FIND REST FOR YOUR SOULS.
For My yoke is easy and my burden is light.
Matthew 11:28-30 NASB
