A Thank You and on "feeling overwhelmed"


Sorry I went missing for a few days there. I am currently staying with my bros and sis that live at home, since my mom and dad are on vacation (Which I am super happy for them, I would like to add :)

Anyhow, I would like to send out a HUGE Thank you to all readers for commenting. :) I got SO excited to see I had 3 comments on my last post : (note to self: have more exciting topics if possible, from now on :)

Anyways, I am not currently, as in today, at this moment :) feeling overwhelmed, it may have something to do with the fact that I along with my younger three kids am tucked in for a rest time :) and my oldest is playing with her aunt downstairs :) Also, the aunt watched them all morning for me ;)
But anywho..back to my point.
..I was thinking this morning that it's interesting how as a mom I tend to get all worked up sometimes and feel totally overwhelmed, but it always ends up working out in the end, so there really is no point in allowing myself to feel that way. Now, obviously we can't help what we "feel" like, but I don't need to feed those thoughts and let them control me. And then another thought occurred to me. Being overwhelmed and feeling anxious are pretty much equal to one another, which led to another thought a verse that was helpful to think about
Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God;
And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
And with that...I will leave you with the thought that SLEEP can cure lots of issues as well :)
I shall nap now :)

  4. Hey so you're at your Mom's! That's fun - I was just thinking of you this morning, wondering how you were doing. I might come by after school to get my pans, you probably won't get this before then, but hopefully they're ready. See you soon!
