I am sitting here with sleep still in my eyes. The ONLY thing we are doing today is getting ready for school tomorrow. YAY!!! I am happy. The girls are happy. everyone is happy. I have to paint something at the school today and the dance started already so we are going to be back in full swing routine soon. and that's a good thing.

PAULA CLARE... you won the make-it-yourself album! I will mail it off to you ASAP.!!!!

Do you sometimes feels that things are not happening as quickly as you hoped? Then the next thing you know is it's going too quick? Oh man! I think that's why the Word teaches us to rejoice in the Lord always. I don't think we will ever come to a point where we are totally satisfied with our lives. When I talked to God about all the irritations and frustrations of my life, this s what He said. And I want to give it to YOU today:

Matt 11: 28-30"Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you'll recover your life. I'll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won't lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you'll learn to live freely and lightly."

Is that good news or what!
have a wonderful day. Because we had a long weekend, it feels like Monday today!

once again, the LORD spoke to me directly through your blog. i spent the whole day crying yesterday, as i was feeling exhausted to the bone, and felt like i could not cope even one minute longer. today i'm a little better, but still fragile. so, i decided to be kind to myself this week. and i opened your post, and what does it say?...

thanks wilna. i never leave your blog untouched in some big or small way.

congrats Paula!!!!!!!! "yay for you"

I feel the same way, and it is nice that the Lord Himself offers us to get away from everything and reunit ourselves with Him one on one..... I have chosen to be just one with him for a wile, I am looking for myself as I don't know my religion any more all I know is that my faith in Him is strong and it grows stronger as I am able to talk to Him and actually hear Him. But isn't your church were you decide talk to Him??????

caro said...

yay PC!!! and yes, we'd love to see your finished album.

Wilna, Katy also started today - last term of the year. It was a really good day, because her whole school is now on one brand new campus. She has a new hairdo & contact lenses & fells like the "belle of the ball". Hugs to your young ladies too.

Thanks for the (up)lifting verse - freely & lightly is very enticing...

Yeah Paula - but I am so green with envy! Wilna, my little man just started school today and it was a thrill to see him get up on the big yellow bus. I am so anxious to hear all about when he gets home late this afternoon. I love what you shared from the word of God. Oh what blessings you always pass along ... thanks.

Hi my friend. Glad to see you are back. I missed you. And Caro - you don't perhaps live in Benoni?

Glad to hear everyone is excited to get back into the routine at your house.
Thanks for sharing the verse. Yes, His yolk is easy and His burden is light.
