Does God ever sneak up behind you and scare the beegebee's out of you? Okay, wait, maybe scare is too harsh of a word for what I'm looking for. How about, pokes you in the eye? Yeah, now that I think about it, poke me in the eye is what he does to me a lot. Let me splane.

See, I've been busier than a one arm paper hanger lately. All this moving and unpacking, setting up a home for the Preacher man and all, it can wear a girl out. I am also trying to make some friends, just some, not a whole lot, so I want to be available when someone says You wanna go... I asked last week if they had everything they needed for VBS this coming week. Well, as a matter of fact, they needed someone to help the music person with the hand motions to the songs and with corralling kids. This seemed like an easy enough thing for me to help with, so I said sure. 

To make a long story just a little shorter, I am now helping the music person with the hand motions to the songs for VBS this week, I'm going to help make and serve sandwiches at Brother Paul's soup kitchen tomorrow, I'm going to my first ever circle meeting on Thursday, having the chair of the trustees and his wife over for dinner on Friday, going to the youth and parent meeting on Saturday and getting Preacher man out of town for his BOM meeting on Sunday. THEN, I get a call from Sister Rachel, who I had talked to yesterday, telling me that she has changed her mind and she wants me joining her group this fall. To top it all off, I'm reading this book called Wayfaring and I come across the part about Being to Doing, that's when God poked me straight in the eye! Listen to this;

It almost seems as though we don't know how to deal with the possibility that we are unconditionally loved, just as we are, and that our many efforts to please others and even to "do God's work" make not a scrap of difference to his love for us.

Argghhh! I know this, I've known this, well, for a while anyway! Am I the only person on this big blue planet that forget's this stuff?!!!? I go from nothing to too much in 5.6 seconds! So, I just want you to know that I do it too, okay?

Now the issue is, how to stop it before it becomes this crazy every week!

Remember to BREATH!!! It's okay to say "not this time" or "I'll catch the meeting next month" :-)
