When It Goes Up, It Must Come Down

It has been a really long weekend! If you go back to my last post from Friday you will see all the amazing blessings God gave me last week. This usually happens. I have some great things happen and then it goes down hill from there! How do you stop that? I have been praying earnestly about that and for God to give me patience and strength for my busy week ahead. I’ve got to pray more!!

Saturday I had to work from 8:30-3:30, then a birthday party and not home until about 9pm. Yesterday was church at 8am until 11:00. Then a birthday party at 2pm and after that VBS decorating. I feel like I have not been home at all! I did not walk into the door until 9:30 last night and went to get the dishes out of the dishwasher and the dishwasher is broken! So I pretty much went straight to bed. Although I didn’t sleep well at all, tossing and turning. And here comes the personal party… I woke up this morning at 5am with my not so friendly friend! The side affects of this has been getting worse and worse since I had my tubes tied almost 4 years ago. I didn’t need that today!!

Anyway, by 5:45 this  morning my hubby and the kids were in the car on their way to Grandma’s, so that I can go to work. They are not staying over night because we have VBS this week (ours is at night not during the day). My friend that I work with is picking me up at 7:30am and I won’t be home until 5pm. Then it’s rushing to get to VBS by 5:30 because the Youth have to be there early. And not home again tonight until about 9pm. Whew… it is going to be a long week!!!

The new site is coming along well, I just don’t know how much time I will have to work on it this week. I was also asked to do a review for a great friend and I have not sent it to her yet because I am unsure of myself, really. I’m not sure if it’s good enough, I’m not sure if it is right! It’s my first one too, so unfortunately I am very unsure of what or how to write it. As of right now, I am only working today and tomorrow but if they need me anymore this week I will definitely be doing it. I will try to keep a post up every day!

So really I guess I wrote this for you all to say a little prayer for me to get through this week. Last night, at church of all places… I could’ve snapped on someone but I bit my tongue. Not good! I would really appreciate it!! I am human and have my days too! Oh and sorry for the timeline, I just thought that would help you see how busy I am already! And as a good friend says, busy is not of God…it’s the Devil.

Have a great Monday!



  1. Christians are just humans, and we are so prone to failures! I certainly have my moments when I don't keep my attitude under control. Ugh.

  2. Hang in there girl! Take it one day at a time. Tomorrow at this time, Tues will almost be over. And Wed is the middle of the week...soon the weekend! I dont know how you do all day, VBS at night all along w/ Aunt Flo!! UGH! I'm praying for you but I KNOW you can get through this. You are a strong woman. I just hope come the weekend you get to rest a little!!

  3. @PamperingBeki... thanks for reminding me I'm not alone! WOW, it's been a long few days! But horray for no work Wednesday and I can gather myself!! :)
    @Heidi thanks so much for the prayers. This morning my head is pounding and I hope that I can make it all day!! Thanks for the encouragement! I am ready for that rest! LOL.

  4. ok I tried to comment last night..guess it didn't I have to remember what I said!! :)

    There are times in life when you just can't escape "busy". Just don't let it comsume you. Its just for a short period of time. Remember, God is still blessing you. That's what faith is all about. Trusting God even when life gets hard. You can do it!!

  5. Marci, you are the best! Thank you!!
