Swirling

There are so many posts swirling in my head that I could or should write...

I should tell you about my first trip to the Muny with my dear friend Tracy.
I should give you the latest on Katie Bloom, in case you're not checking her progress blog.
I should entreat you to pray for a wonderful friend of mine who needs lots of prayer that God would show her favor and be glorified in the trial she's going through.
I should urge you to pray for two precious beloved people who desperately need God to work a miracle in their life.
I could tell you how the bottom fell out of a part of my world when I was confronted in a heartbreaking way with the fact that people near and dear to me are every bit as much in need of God's grace and sanctification as I am.
I should post pictures (that I should have taken) of our wonderful visit with family - Papa and Mama, Beka and "the cousins" have arrived and we LOVE having them!
I should tell you about the fact that my in-laws have gone, in the space of a month and a half, from having no pets to having a chihuahua and a collie.

But you know what...
We don't have company in the house this morning.
It's been a doozey of a week.
I am exhausted.
And so...
I am settling my Blessings in for some quiet reading time,
And I am Taking a Nap.

oh sweet girl! I am praying for you. I completely understand the swirling, just today I wondered aloud, will it ever end? Praying for strength and courage for you, the Lord your God is with you, don't forget it!

enjoy your nap!

love those naps! sometimes they help bring everything in perspective. reminding us that God is bigger than our problems, when they threaten to overwhelm us.

Laurel,

I love your posts like this! They give me a glimpse into your life, and remind me that just because I can't do something 100% (like blogging) doesn't mean I can't give the 5% I have to offer right now!

Thanks!
