I really feel like a lot of things in my life are out of control right now. I don't feel like I have time to do anything. We always seem so rushed to get from here to there. It's always hurry, hurry, hurry. There is something planned for every waking moment. Lord, I ask that you help us step back and take the time to do the things you would have us do, and realize what can be left for another day.
On the financial front things are out of control as well. It seems like there is always more month left at the end of our money. I told Brian it was time that we sit down and really look at our spending and see where we can cut back. We have talked about it before, and said we would cut back here and there, but we have not followed through. It is time to really analyze just where our money is going. Lord, I ask that you be with us in this so that no harsh words are said and no one's feelings get hurt.
On a lighter note...
My son has turned preacher. Stephen held a revival last week at Brian's parent's house. You may remember from this previous post that they have twelve chickens. Well Stephen carried his Bible down to the chicken pen and preached to them. He read scripture, then had an alter call. According to him, five of the twelve accepted Christ and got saved. He is still praying for the other seven. I just hope he doesn't get the bright idea to try to baptize any of them. Can you imagine the feathers flying?
Challenge update - not so great this week - I am retaining water and I feel like the Pillsbury dough boy.
