Would it not be fabulous if everything would be sweet and simple? Things like a nasty colds, paycheck problems, and school issues would not exist. Then would we rely on God like he wants us to? Would we fall at his feet when things continue to get worse? Would life be easier just because we kept up with our prayer life? I have no clue! Things have gone from hard to knock me out tough around here. I have yet to figure out a good time to have a quiet time, take a walk, or how to get homework done on under an hour. And why am I spending two hours a night on homework for a first grader? I am reconsider letting her finish the first grade and then homeschool next year, but I am waiting for now.
I am working on my attitude around here. Things have been stressful financially since we moved here. The stress has caused some bite-your-head off responses from Dad and me. So I found this post and printed it out. I am working on my attitude and like the things that I see. Except for a few moments this weekend.
The punches keep coming. So I am laying it all at the feet of my Lord. I pray that we can find some peace in this new town. We are gearing up for a deployment and that always makes the stress level rise and I need the problems that we are facing to be gone by the time the deployment gets here. So I ask that if you are the praying type to please say a prayer for us. We need some peace with each other, with finances, with neighbors.
Have a great day. Amanda
