From Chaos to Order

We interrupt your blog time to let you know that I've fallen off the Order wagon and need desperately to get back on! I feel like my life is in complete Chaos, but if you were to look through a window at it you would just see us as being a bit busy. I mean, I haven't even posted pics of our new girl, Big Betty and she's already on her way to the doctor's.

In case you have no clue who Big Betty is, she's a new to us 1997 Suburban. (Ooooo do i like her!) We tend to name our automobiles around here. Don't ask me why, but we do it with our children also. They leave the hospital with their birth name, but by the time they arrive home they have their nickname. Then blog names there after. I'll try and post some pics of Big Betty when she gets back. Praying it's a inexpensive celluloid problem (not cellulite).

We're also doing our end of the year school testing this week. I like to do it early. It shows me where we've fallen off track and where we are excelling. Then we can adjust and add in new items of interest. I pretty much know what needs tweaking, but this is required by our state and confirms what I pretty much already know.

On top of that Urban Girl has taken her Traffic class, has gotten her Permit and is will be learning to drive. Whew! A lot in one week.

AND if that weren't enough we were also featured on our local Fox News station about our chickens. I was hoping to provide links, but they don't have any up yet. So now we're local TV stars! Always knew we'd make it to the big time! Hehehehe.

So Chaos is reigning. I need to spend time (like days or weeks) all alone focusing on what the Lord what's me to do next. I mean. I've forgotten how to listen. If you're feeling the same way, I urge you to stay up the extra hour, get up earlier, sit down at nap time or send the kiddos out to play for hour. Rest and listen. Just be still and listen even it's only for 10 minutes. I wish I had a day, weekend or maybe even a week.... But I'll take 10, 20 and would be thrilled with 60 minutes!

Rest and wait on Him. Let Him start you on a fresh path. Praise Him for all the glorious things He's done for you. The trials He has seen you through and the times of learning to come!

Blessings!

I know what you mean....the Lord? Time with Him? Huh? What's that. I fixed that this week...I needed it! AND, with a little push from Oman, those few places of chaos are nicely falling back into order. All in time, dear friend, all in time.
