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 . 


I’m not settling to be settled… God knows the desires of my heart..

Jeremiah 29:11 

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.”

    I’m this way too. I get criticized for not being settled. I’m constantly moving, always looking forward. Funny thing is, my strength finder profile says that “”futuristic” is my number one strength. My wife says that I’m never satisfied but I don’t feel that way. She says I’m not enjoying the journey. There may be something to what she’s saying. I’m still examining it. Jeremiah 29:11 is my life verse and often reminds me about all of this. If you have time, check out bossinthemiddle.com
