"...Just Another Manic Monday..."

"wish it was sunday...

'cause that's my fun day..."

I would go on, but I don't want to make you sick with all that cheese.

I need to slow down. Mondays are not the only "manic" days in my life. I'm tired. Exhaustion is setting in. I want to sit down and have a glass of tea. UNINTERRUPTED. I want to be able to watch a whole movie again at some point (July is looking good for that. Sadly, I'm serious...) and have two-hour lunches with friends and not feel bad for not checking my phone three times. I want to hang out at Sonshine Kids on Wednesdays. I want to surf the internet for stupidities and download the rest of my CDs onto my Ipod. I want to I want to have time to sit for an hour in the presence of the Most High. I want to have a date night with my boyfriend. I want to read a book that I actually enjoy-- (maybe tomorrow since I will be at Blessings--come visit!).

This sounds like a gripe session. I realize that. But I am so thankful that I serve a God who allows me to wear myself out at times to remind me that I cannot and should not operate in my own strength. He says no. It doesn't work--check out John 15:5 and my last post on Abiding. The bottom line is this: maybe I am crazy for being so busy. It's my own fault. it's my own weakness that sometimes I don't know how to prioritize or have boundaries. But I can't wait to see what God does with this weakness!

I'm a busy person too. but when I think to myself about why can't I slow down. I realize that Man the people I've met through this are amazing. and thats when I realize wearing myself out a bit is worth it. I'm glad your busy. because if you weren't I might have never met you :) And I need you in my life! I love you lauren!
