yesterday i woke up with an awful headache.
went in & snuggled with caroline as i woke her up
wishing we didn't have to go to school and could stay in bed all day.
wrote my balance post.
ate yogurt & some yummy homemade granola
after finding out my cholesterol is high.
moments after pushing the publish button, received a call from a precious friend.
we shamefully admitted to each other
that we both haven't picked up our bibles in a while
& really spent time with the lord.
we cried about sending first borns off
& how our babies aren't really babies any more.
we shared about how thankful we are for loving & loyal hubby's.
how as mama's we long to have our families together
& whether its for good & happy things or not
it's just plain hard when one is gone.
we talked about the power of prayer
& having accountability.
my headache got worse
the computer was blurry
and it was entirely too bright outside.
i climbed back in bed.
spent most of the day there
& then climbed back in again after dinner.
i feel much better today
no more gosh awful headache.
but the truth is,
one of the main reasons i feel so off
is because i haven't been in the word.
i'm so ashamed to even admit that.
while my bible is laying right beside my computer
it's much easier for me to open my laptop
than to open the scriptures.
it apparantly is more important to see what others have to say to me
than what He does.
the other day, caroline picked up my 364 bible.
it's a great little paperback version that takes you through the scriptures
in chronological order in a year.
she said "mama, you left your book mark in april. want me to move it over to august for you?"
she was being totally sincere.
i'm an open book here on my blog
but i really want to be more intentional
about journaling with paper and pen.
there have been so many specific answers to prayer in the last several days
that if i don't write them down, i fear i'll forget them.
first step in operation find balance
is the obvious.
it was my new years goal months ago.
& apparantly, changing my diet
to fish, chicken and oatmeal
is step two.
ya'll have a great day!
Your word is a lamp to guide my feet
and a light for my path
