Bone Tired and Weary.....

I have had a rough few weeks for sure but the last few days have really kicked my butt! I am sick physically right now and emotionally I am drained and I had such a rough day today with the kids that I didn't get Christmas cards mailed, again, this was my 3rd attempt this week, that's how stressed out I have been! So, your Christmas cards will be on their way tomorrow because I am going to have my Mom watch the girls while I go pick up my pictures and mail the cards. She doesn't know it yet, but she's going to or she can go with me and sit in the car and if she doesn't want to go, I will drag my Daddy. I am desperate! Today was horrible and I am pretty sure that I have Post Traumatic Stress Disorder from the experience. ( I am just trying to joke a little and relieve the stress.) Anyway, so leaving you with a few posts to read that have stepped on my toes, knocked me on the head and healed me in all kinds of glorious ways this week! God is doing a marvelous work in me right now and it is SO exciting to see what is going to come of all the pain I have endured! We are going to come out of this more alive than we have ever been, alive in Jesus Christ! So, here are some of the links:

This post is titled "watch and pray"

Another one titled "Vomit in Sam's Club" and also, this one

Here is an awesome, life changing blog!

And, this is a great blog as well, and this post helps me so much each time I read it (time and time again, this week).

Have a great rest of the week, everyone! Merry Christmas! And, don't close your eyes to God's work in your life.

Blessings,

Julie

I've visited those last two links several times since you posted them earlier. I can completely relate to the one on structure - I went through the same feelings when we lost our son Elijah. Church was just "playing pretend" for most of my life, although I didn't realize it until life turned upside down. I LOVE Cindy Beall's blog - she is so full of wisdom. Thanks for sharing these links!

Sweetie, I am very sorry that things have been so rough for you recently. I never stop praying for you, and God never stops holding you close and loving you.
