I did it again...

I can't believe it. After 5 bio kids you'd think I'd have it down by now But NO- I have made our schedule too busy, too rushed and too stressed. I am not leaving enough time for God, for prayer, for peace and for his word- I made myself too busy to pray...

BIG MISTAKE- I'm not going to let that happen again. We need to re-evaluate quite a few things BUT the one thing that is not going to go... the one thing that I will make room for... is the call to adopt. Not only is it God's plan for us BUT it is our dream, also. It is how he has called us to serve him and I couldn't be more thankful about that!

I am making a u-turn and throw out the garbage in life (last time I checked that garbage can it contained- worry, obsessing, over planning, lack of joy, crabbiness, burdens, and much much more in it...)- IT IS SO OUTTA HERE!

Today has already been better- started out with prayer before I even got out of bed and I never stopped chatting with God all day long! It is so easy to get caught in the negative and yet the positive feels so good, so right- I don't know why I sometimes get off track but I do- thank goodness he takes me back!

Give thanks to the Lord for he is good!
Psalm 136:1

I have noticed that as we added and then added another little blessing,my life HAD to become more and more simplified. It's funny now, the things that I use to think I needed to do or be involved in just wasn't as important as I thought. We spend most of our days at home, and I can say it is our favorite place to be and I'm not as busy as I was with the first children, so I think I enjoy them all more.

Oh yeah, it is a lesson I need to learn over and over.
