so its not so often we get just to just sit and be...i often wonder what God would say to me?????... I know we are supposed to be still and know. how do those who are still get to be still?? raising monkeys is a tough job. a great job. a blessing.but, a very very all consuming job. then you throw in work, church ,school, army duties, and home duties. we were at our couples class at church friday night and T said a way that he would feel loved would to be given time to just "be". I laughed...it didn't make sense to me...i have pretty much given up on thoughts of me time..it just is not in the cards for me right now.how selfish of me to forget that just because i don't need it he doesn't. he works goes to school and armies :) i after laughing ..alot...about this. now feel bad. i forgot that he to needs alone time..ugh...now how in the world will i remedy this..i have yet to figure it out..maybe take the monkeys to the store with me...that's at least 2 hrs..gonna try it..he needs it. he deserves it. not many go from single to 3 kids in 2 years! wow he is brave.
on Saturday we took the day off ( kinda i was in a parade that am) and drove...to stilly. what fun. Elijah was stoked. he thought we were going to branson. poor kid needs a vacation just as bad as we do. we had some good grub at Bad Brads bbq, showed the boys the football field and the campus. showed them Ts old apartment and work and boomer lake, went to see Miss Katie!!! we love her.....got some yummy coffee. i think Elijahs highlight was going to the laundry mat to do a breathing treatment. lol yup we did.. gotta do what ya gotta do.
church was good..it was about stop being a brat ! ha funny.Pastor Toby even flopped around in the floor as a demo..a bit safer than riding the bike around the people...and dunking his head in the baptistery.. something i really didn't think we would discuss at Church..but, we all really need to grow up and man up don't we. we preach at our kids to stop whining..yet when we are given something we flop around and say i cant...how...why me???
it was a good weekend it went to fast and I'm not looking forward to our little/big family being spread from here to there this week. i really like all my baby birds being in one spot. daddy bird too. we have alot to be thankful for and I'm going to find some time to be still even if its just 5 minutes. i think i can i think i can..
blessings to you.
am I now trying to win the approval of human beings, or of God? Or am I trying to please the people? If I were still trying to please people I would not be a servant of Christ.
