Do you ever have one of those days?
The day where you can’t get out of bed? The day where you are always feeling uptight? The day where your fuse seems so short?
How about the day when the tears start and don’t seem to stop? The day where the emotions are just all over the charts and you just can’t put your finger on it?
Today is one of those days…one of the days where the tears start and don’t stop. Best part is when they start in the middle of church… but really there is no reason. It wasn’t the worship… it wasn’t the sermon…literally all of a sudden they just start. I leaned over to Casey and said I was feeling emotional, he put his arm around me and out come the tears. THE FLOOD GATES OPEN and I couldn’t figure out how to make it stop!!!
Okay, so maybe this sounds a bit like pregnancy emotions!? Ya… I’m pretty sure that’s it. Maybe it’s that I miss family and friends back in CT?? Ya… that’s probably it too. MAYBE we have a lot of things going on…. Casey has a crazy work schedule. Literally haven’t seen my husband work this hard since… well… I’ve never seen him work this hard! I am still trying to feel settled in the house and in finding friends… oh, and I am due in 6 weeks. The pregnancy aches and pains are worse this time, which just doesn’t help because it makes me feel lazy when I have to sit on the couch.
Do you know what makes these days even better?? When your little man wakes up in a good mood but comes out of the nursery super fussy. You find out he’s been like that all morning and then when you get home, he just BREAKS over lunch. SOMETHING is up with our little guy and I pray it’s just molars!!
Why wouldn’t the tears just start coming and never stop!?! 🙂
The point of this blog isn’t for me to just complain… I just had to vent. I adore my family and the life we have been given…today is just one of those days. Encouragement? Yes. As I was washing dishes thinking about my day the Lord reminded me of Psalm 23:
“The LORD is my shepherd,
I shall not want.
He makes me lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside quiet waters.
He restores my soul;
He guides me in the paths of righteousness
For His name’s sake.
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I fear no evil, for You are with me;
Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
You have anointed my head with oil;
My cup overflows.
Surely goodness and loving-kindness will follow me all the days of my life,
And I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.
What about laying down in green pastures, being lead beside still waters and restoring my soul is not a breath of fresh air?? To be reminded of this was like a cool rush of wind in my face… that’s what He does. He gives me a breath of fresh air when I need it. He calms and restores my should through His word and in being reminded of it.
