Nothing and Too Much

Can you have nothing and too much to post all at the same time?

That's how I feel.

My life has been running on fast forward it seems lately, but when I sit down to post.....

....I got nothin.

Lot's of changes and things going on here.
I think I'll just bullet point.

*Quit my job at the pharmacy
*going to volunteer (read: work) at the church for our kids program
I am excited about that
*Jared is finally all well
*Alyssa will be home TOMORROW!!!!
*she and I are going to AZ for her spring break
VERY excited about that
*been setting up college visits for my youngest
can't believe that is even possible
*his dad is taking him over his spring break
read: I have a whole week to myself at home
do I even need to tell you how excited I am about that?
*lots of stress for me lately..showing up in my back
*got a deep tissue massage on Tuesday
ouch.  but now a new woman!!
*feeling overwhelmed with all that is going on in lives around me
so much to pray about.  so much wisdom needed.
*but also feeling/seeing how big and great my God is

And I'll leave you with the song that I am singing a lot lately:

Wow! Lots of changes on the horizon. Seems exciting to me!

Totally get where you are coming from!

Sometimes you have so much stuff in your head and then when you sit down at the key board it all evaporates.....


Rebecca Jo said...

WOW... those ARE big changes - lots going on! Yep - you're going to be one busy lady working with the kiddos!!! :)

Have fun on the spring break to Arizona!!!

Tara said...

Your list made me tired just reading it! :)

I love that CT song too! Very good reminder in times like these!

H-Mama said...

that 'is' a lot going on, my friend. hope you can catch up on some much needed rest during your time alone. and maybe a lil' zumba... without an audience. ;)

Wow - a lot of changes for sure, but certainly some mighty things to look forward to. My sister never got back to me about Flat Stanley, so I say, "go for it" (if you still want to!) - and take him (her?) with you to Arizona I said before, you've made that little guy one happy Stanley!!!!

(P.S. - I had an "ouch" deep tissue massage right after Christmas - but the results were also oh-so-good!)

Karin said...

wow...lots of things going on. So many changes. Change can be good, but I can see why you're stressed. I'm envying your deep tissue massage (as I press a hot pad into my neck--haha). I haven't ever found one like the ones I got in China for $10. Ahhhhhh.....

I love two things in this post:


2) That is my favorite Chris Tomlin song, and one of my favorite songs overall. It has such a powerful message, and one that I needed to hear.

You've got a lot going on! Change and being busy can be hard...even if it is good change and good busy stuff. I'm there at times too, and I can't string my thoughts together in a blog post. It is like the words just leave my brain.

And you think 'empty nest' is going to slow life down? Don't kid yourself :)
Let me know exact dates of BSU and IWU visits.

Michelle Burk said...

I feel your words exactly. I could post the very same things. I always think in my head, oh that would be a good post, but by the time I make it to the computer, my mind goes blank and I let the days flow past.

And there is SO much going on, to us, and everyone around us. Our prayers go on, and on, and on as we add loved ones, neighbors, friends, so many suffering with sickness, sadness, hopelessness. Sometimes I want to pray with a megaphone so I know I'm being heard.

Love you, Sara. Sure wish we could stop time, and meet at Martha's lakehouse in Michigan, and just sit and feel peace amidst the beauty. I cling to the memories. Xoxo, Michelle

Loved this post! I'm so there right now. The bullet points really work (and the cute comments in teeny letters.)

I've been having my own blog guilt, but not life guilt. Just running at full steam with lots of people to think about and pray for.

Love stopping by to see what you're up to. Thanks.
