Weekend Reflection
This has been a different week for me in that I allowed myself to be anxious about things in our lives. I try to "be anxious for nothing" but I didn't do so well this week. I am blaming it on hormones and I wish the Bible said, "Be anxious for nothing, except when you are hormonal...", then I would be a much more obedient child!
The week started with Church and our traditional Pizza Hut lunch! We had Life Groups at someone else's house this time and we had a great time.
Monday, we had our Upwards Banquet that I wrote about on Tuesday. I was so proud!
Tuesday, I walked the Riverwalk with a friend and hurt my foot. I didn't have an accident or anything--just walked in old shoes with bad support! I bought some great new tennies and my foot is healing!
Wednesday, I started not feeling well and started worrying about everything under the sun!
One of my worries was the sad state of our yard! When Spring comes, I am ready for the yard to look nice. My sweet hubby is out in the yard right now working hard so I won't have to be anxious anymore! It will look wonderful!
Thursday and Friday were just regular days--we are getting ready for the kids to take their Achievement tests at a local Christian school--so we have been spending some time in review! I bought the Test Readiness books you can get at the bookstore and they are going through those!
Today, we are headed for a birthday party an hour away. While we are there, we will go see Amazing Grace. I am looking forward to seeing it! Have a great week everyone!
*Updated to add that my yard looks mucho bettero and Amazing Grace was just that---Amazing! I highly recommend it. We had to travel an hour away to find a theatre that was showing it. And I'm sad to say that the parking lot was jam-packed, but the Amazing Grace theatre was fairly empty. We, as Christians, really need to get out and support these faith-based films in order to keep them coming! Ok--I'll quit preaching now!

Wow- you had a packed week! Comfortable shoes are a must, huh! I must be getting old, but I won't wear uncomforable shoes for anything anymore no matter how good they look. It's just not worth it. I've heard good things about that movie- I haven't checked to see if it's playing here though. Have a great Sunday!

I want to see that movie too, I loved facing the giants!
It's very hard not to be anxious. I have to really work on this and dealing with Izzy has brought it home for me because the progress hasn't been the speed I would have thought or planned... I'm quite the planner. Give me a problem, and I'll give you a plan! But, I have learned to trust God, to lean on Him, and to not manage my life so much. I believe that she is healed by the stripes of Jesus. That's all that matters. Walking by faith rather than sight is a beautiful saying, lovely sentiment, nice picture for the wall... living it is not any of the above, but is a complete separation from self and union with God.
I pray that you are filled with peace this week and I am filled with faith!

Worry. Ummmm...No, not me, huh-uh, now way. I never worry. NOT.

This is something I struggle with daily. I worry about big things, little things, important things, stupid things. Hormones make it worse here too.

Praying for peace of heart for both of us.

Sounds like a similar week to feeling anxious anyways! Oh I love the Riverwalk! So sorry you hurt your foot. I want to go see Amazing Grace, my husband and I haven't been out since I can't even remember! Oh, and my husband was also working on agarden in the front with our eldest daughter. Yes, it is time for spring flowers!

I am a BIG TIME worrier from way back. Like since birth! I struggle with it mean hourly! Pray for me and I'll be praying for you!

I am dying to see Facing the Giants and Amazing Grace. I am glad you got to enjoy the movie.

I hope you have a very blessed week this week. And if your hubby gets a free minute he can come on up to TN and work on my yard. My hubby hasn't started on ours yet!

Yeah, anxiety. I think that's probably me besetting sin. If there's one thing that I would lay at the base of all my health problems, it's angst.

Your the 2nd blogger today that really liked the movie. I'll have to see it.

Boy, I know about foot pain, so I hope yours gets better.

Hope this week is even better!
