SMP 2.21.14

SMP = Seven Minute Post

I feel like I need to throw myself a party for making it to Friday. It wasn't pretty, y'all. It's been a long, hard and full week and I feel like I'm limping to the finish line, aka the weekend. I think I say this weekly but I'm SO happy it is Friday. Weekends are my favorite.

So, ummmm, when you realize that your theme for the year is "HEALTH" you might not realize all the unhealth in your life and you might be unprepared for how and when it might surface and engulf you. I'm not really talking about physical health here as much as spiritual and emotional and relational. Wowza. It's been quite a week and I had a mini-meltdown last night. It wasn't pretty but I stepped away  from my "tantrum" with a very clear awareness of some things I need to move away from--things that fuel unhealthy patterns and attitudes in me. I will try to elaborate when I have more than seven minutes for a post. My thoughts are vast...

A few weeks ago my beautiful friend, Deidre, asked me if I'd be willing to write a guest post for a series on her blog about receiving God's love. I prayed about it and felt led to share and you can read it here if you'd like. It's a good reminder for me {dare I say all of us} that I am deeply loved. Even when I have mini-meltdowns/tantrums. Even when I doubt. Even when I blow it. Yes, even then. 

Happy Friday.

I had the same kind of week. Wednesday night, I thought "I can't see myself making it until Friday!" I'm always like that when Eric is out of town, but this week was worse. I was pulled in every direction and couldn't do anything well it seemed. SOOO glad it's the weekend.

Thank you for your testimony. I received an email from a lady that I should forward you. She was so blessed by your testimony! That's what it's all about!!!
