I'm Amazed by You

I think that most people look at my life and wonder first "WHY IS SHE SO BUSY?" and second "HOW?"

Its an odd week this week. We had yesterday off in honor of those who serve and I have Friday off. I was supposed to have a meeting today but it got cancelled. I came home and cooked dinner for Phyllis, Gibby, and myself. Then I cleaned up and thought "now what?" You see for me, being busy is just a way of life. But I'm trying to change that. I've been praying about it for awhile. Last week, I told our Youth Pastor, only High School Youth Group next year (Alive), no more Jr. High. I also gave up greeting at my church.

I always complain because I never have time to exercise and today I did, so I put on my headphones and walked about 40 minutes. I probably could have had a pep-pier step but I only listened to praise music that moved my heart. The last song I listened to was by Desperation Band. I am amazed by God, I am looking forward to more time to spend in Him, I am amazed that He loves me. I can't wait to dance with Him.

Ecc 3:11 He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the hearts of men; yet they cannot fathom what God has done from beginning to end

This is my absolute very favorite praise song --I can never sing it without weeping (try being on a worship team and getting through this one!) Thanks for helping me start my day off right's going to be a rough day for me - tough decisions to make. I needed this focus!

And Bravo to you for slowing down! I need some of your energy - pass it here please!
