Busy, Busy, Busy

Do you ever feel like you are just go, go, going from the time you wake up until the time you go to bed?  I have sort of felt that way this week but it isn't totally the truth, it's just been my perception.  In reality, I've had some good times with my family (with Adam being off this week), got a lot of stuff accomplished and are sort of ahead of the game with regards to getting Braly's 10th birthday party ready as well as helping with the Taco Benefit that takes place this Friday from 4-7 or 8ish.

I have helped put baskets together for the benefit, I have now baked 6 cakes to make a 3 tier cake for Braly's party.  I have a feeling we're going to be eating cake for awhile. lol  But oh well.  He is one very special boy (I don't know if I'm allowed to say little anymore since he'll be double digits).  And I am honestly really excited for the things that we've planned for his party.  I am hoping to share pics after the event but may need to take some down time after to relax a bit.  I have a few more things to prep for his party tonight & tomorrow and I am hoping to have everything but the last few things done so Friday can be spent setting up at the church for the benefit as well as spending some extra time with family that has come to visit.

In case you didn't realize it, I see the Oncologist once a month.  I could use some extra prayers for the pain in my back & hip. They feel sort of stiff and it hurts to bend down & then stand up.  The thing I'm trying to figure out is whether to take any pain meds for it because it isn't like it hurts all the time but when I am in a position for any length of time, I have a hard time when I first move. Kinda like being old. Lol.  Part of it is from being out of shape from not being able to do any exercising after the hysterectomy, some may be from the damage the cancer did to the bones, some is probably from the car injury I had when I was just 16, and some is probably due to aging.  No matter what contributes to it, I am praising God that I am able to do all the things I get to do & I am praising him for removing ALL the pain. Just trusting HIM for it all!

I am sad that in this week, I've fallen a bit behind on my Bible Reading.  And today I am feeling it. When I do my daily readings & spend some quiet time with God, I feel so much better & focused.  I can say that it is more difficult for me to share from God's word when I have not spent my time with Him.  However, I just taught a lesson in kids' church that was about Self-Confidence and we were learning about how each of us are special because God created us in His image.  We are working on a great verse that EVERYONE should memorize and say as a reminder of just how special we are.

Psalm 139:14 I Praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made, your works are wonderful I know that full well.

It seems to always come down to Praising God for all he's done!  And here is a great, upbeat song that reminds us to give it all back to God!
