This past week has been quite a journey. At our church the preparations were being made for Easter. It was spring break for many, so my normal routine was messed up. Monday.. is a free day, Gym at night.. Tuesday..work then Irish Dance.. Wednesday.. Ladies Fellowship Thursday .. Gym.. Friday.. Gym/dinner friends Saturday.. Gym.. meetup with friends.. Sunday.. Church.
The ministry’s that my husband and I lead, had to be prepped as we would be going out of town for his sisters Wedding. We were absent for our ” Super Bowl ” of church, we get 2 big events a year , and we were missing one of them, made us both feel a little lost. So funny how you get settled in a routine. Even for God.
I am thankful we attended such a beautiful Wedding in a beautiful place. My sister in law a beautiful bride, a lot of very nice people. I have to say spending family time focused on that was great , my stepson having to be cooped up with us in the car, priceless!
Makes me think… Am I in a rut? I have never been one to stay doing the same thing all the time. I also have made the mistakes of never being content either. Job hopping after a few years, getting fit etc..Am I doing this again? The clue is, my pile of books next to my bed, whatever new thing I’m in to is evident by the book pile. That is why I can’t do Kindle, I have to see the pile . Can any of you relate? My whole house can be a mess, but if I have my organizational books are next to the bed, that means I’m working on it. Is anyone crazy like me? Well obviously people are.. because I googled for the image below, and there was many!
I’m never settled. I’m not discontent or not grateful, just I don’t like the same thing all the time. I figure one day I will be older and not as mobile, so I’m going to do.. Do all the time, it’s not always wise, but I have experienced much and gained knowledge. Not only am I doing , but reading many different topics.. right now I’m doing a study of being a busy woman( Haha) reading fiction .. The Red Queen.. self Help..Big Fat Lies.. Fitness… The Bible…Framework for Fitness. So tells you my mindset..what’s on the burners .
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.
James 4:13-15New International Version (NIV)
Boasting About Tomorrow
13 Now listen, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money.” 14 Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. 15 Instead, you ought to say, “If it is the Lord’s will, we will live and do this or that.”
