Distracted

The last several months have been busy for us. There have been way too many trips to the Mountain House, with at least one more that I know of in our future. 

The de-cluttering in my house has stopped temporarily, while I sort through the boxes of things we brought home from the last rip to the  Mountain House, a task that has taken more time than I thought it would. I feel like this is a job I need to tackle because there will be more things coming to our house with the next trip.

Instead of being focused on a task I am finding that I am quite distracted. I have so much to do I'm not even sure where to start. I used to have a system, certain days for certain chores, let me tell you that system seems to have gone out the window in recent weeks. For someone who has control issues, like me, well it's been hard to let go.

I'm in the process of learning a new way again, letting go of the unnecessary, trying to be sensitive to the Lord's leading for my days, even if it wasn't in my plans. (especially if it wasn't in my plans)

For those of us who foolishly think that we're in control, it's not an easy thing to let go ... praying for you, my friend.

Oh, I so get what you are saying and it's times like this that we can barely put one foot in front of the other. I pray that things will get better and you will be back on your regular schedule. Hugs to you!

You and your dear husband are going through a lot of changes and some take time and interrupt the flow of our lives.

I liked what you wrote at the end of your post **I'm in the process of learning a new way again, letting go of the unnecessary, trying to be sensitive to the Lord's leading for my days, even if it wasn't in my plans. (especially if it wasn't in my plans)**

This is so me too, especially since losing my dear husband. Life goes on, God is my strength, and I try to take things one day at a time.

Love, hugs & prayers ~ FlowerLady

I think most of us can soo identify with this post...I know I can for sure. I feel like I might have fought that my whole life. I am NOT in control. You'd think I would have learned that by now. KNOWING that He IS becomes our comfort and hope. Praying for you...
