Today I am trying to make some sense out of my life which at once seems too complicated for me to handle. I suffer from what I call "mental crowdedness" aka too much to do with too little time. No, actually I think I have more than enough time. I am sure if I was completely honest with myself I don't want a mental list at all. I want a clean slate which stays clean all the time. Which of course is not possible. So I made a decision that I will do the laundry which have been in the dryer for 5 days this morning. and I did. I am going to tidy my room and unpack the last suitcase before I have coffee. Another big event in my life is that I am starting to volunteer at our school basically every afternoon from 1 to 3:15. Alot of things in and around the house need to get done before one. Maybe I suffer from the I-need-a-holiday-after-the-holiday syndrome. ha-ha. Time to get over that!

So, today's thought is more for me than for you. Even if our lives are a little complicated (like mine) or a lot, God can make sense out of any situation. I am thankful for that today. Matt 11: 28Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy-laden and overburdened, and I will cause you to rest. [I will ease and relieve and refresh your souls.] 29Take My yoke upon you and learn of Me, for I am gentle (meek) and humble (lowly) in heart, and you will find rest (relief and ease and refreshment and recreation and blessed quiet) for your souls. 30For My yoke is wholesome (useful, good--not harsh, hard, sharp, or pressing, but comfortable, gracious, and pleasant), and My burden is light and easy to be borne.

happy monday

Just keep plugging, girl. Keep a smile on your face and in your heart. Just do one thing at a time until they all get done.

Sounds like you are suffering from monday blues.. In SA was maandag 'n vakansiedag - Heritage Day aka Nationale Braaidag. My winkel was oop, en raai wie werk op 'n vakansiedag...

Die wimpy advertensie is een van daardie wat mens NOOIT genoeg van kry nie. Hul het die advertensie afgehaal, en weer teruggebring due to huge demand.

Hoop jy kry dinge gedoen op jou lysie, dan voel jy stukke beter.
