Life is happening too quickly for me. It's throwing more curve balls all at the same time than I can comfortably cope with. When I am out of my 'comfort zone' for too long, it affects me in a less than favorable way.

There have been extremely difficult situations recently that involve more than a few of my loved ones. They have pulled my 'mother' and 'wife' strings taut - almost to the point of breaking. However, no breakage has occurred and I credit my 24 years in Alcoholics Anonymous and 5 years in Al-Anon for that.

My daughter has come face to face with a personal crisis and needed major changes in her life.
My son's wife was hit by a car while on her bicycle.
My husband blogged about his situation in the heat.

Bottom lines:
Daughter has been scooped up into the loving arms of God and I believe He is firmly guiding her.

Daughter-in-law spent hours in the ER, but was not hospitalized, has had surgery for a broken nose, just found out her knee did not sustain a tear or break and will heal without surgery.

Husband 'survived' heat exhaustion.

I am very tired. My spirits are not tired, but my body is.
I continue to turn everything over -- daughter, son, daughter-in-law, and husband.
I trust God and will never stop - never!

I have been involved with a lot of activities that are not usually on my plate. I have managed to blog at least something most days. I have been unable to do much commenting. I am trying to read as many blogs as possible. I know that you wonderful bloggers will understand.

Loving you all,
Prayer Girl

Dear one, take your time. . . . you do not have to do everything right away.

I am sorry for your present situations that are requiring a lot of you. Glad you are giving the precious gifts that God has give you over to Him to take care of. That is including yourself also!!

Father God please be with Anna today, throughout the day and bring her the Peace that surpasses all understanding. Rain serenity and blessings on her family that they may heal physically, mentally and spiritually in the Spirit of your Love and Grace and keep them safe in your hands as they travel the bumpy world of their human existence.

Father I ask for rest for Anna that she may have the strength to continue to work for your Glory.

Hang in there. Don't worry about us. Take care of YOU first and the rest will fall into place. Love you with all of my heart.

Syd said...

I hope that you get some rest and take care of Anna. I know that you have the tools of the program to do that. Life can be fast and furious at times. It takes time to process it all and like you say just turn it over.

It's so easy to get overwhelmed. Take it all one moment at a time and remember to take care of yourself. Thinking of and praying for you tonight.
