Tuesday Thoughts

I hope this finds everybody doing well and from the little glimpses I have had when reading or visiting your blogs it sounds like all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I know we did. Traveling to Kentucky was long but we had a wonderful time spending it with family. Of course, the food was plentiful and tasty. Since our actual meal was the fifth one for my sister this year, and my parents were leaving town the day after we left, mom sent all the leftovers home with me. Needless to say I am still eating turkey. Since my days are long and I am so tired when I arrive home in the evening, I have been enjoying not having to cook.

I still don't have things quite back to normal, but fortunately when I left for my moms, I had cleaned my house so I came home to a clean house. Granted since we have gotten home we haven't been doing so well keeping things picked up. But hoping that in the next couple of days things will come together a little bit for me.

I have really been struggling with some personal issues and I think that has had me just a little bit more moody and exhausted than normal. I have been seeking some peace through scriptures and one that keeps popping up for me is "Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight." Proverbs 3:5-6 NIV This passage over the years has really helped me....as well as the old adage " One day at a time". I know from past experiences that this scripture holds alot of power for me, I have seen it. So why do I always doubt when things seem so "hard, miserable". I pray that God will not let these trials steal my joy during this holiday season. But my body and my mind get so tired.And I know when that happens, I lose joy! Does this happen to any of you, or is it just me? Sometimes it makes me wonder if I don't have enough faith or what I am doing wrong. Is it me?

I read one post this morning that really was beneficial for me. I could see me all over this post. Feel free to read Broken Vessels entry from Dec. 1.

I need to scoot for now, but I hope you all are having a blessed day.

Hey Cindy!

I've been a bad blogger & blog hopper lately. I'm glad you had such a wonderful time in Kentucky with your family!

I think we all go through those times when our physical self runs out & it affects our spiritual self. All we can really do is just keep on keeping on & looking UP to the One who can give us everything we need.

I pray He gives you the energy & strength you need to keep on keeping on!

Love ya xo
