When your mind is doing cartwheels....

Today is a wonderful day....however, it's one of those days where my mind is racing. Just a little bit ago, I almost had a panic attack! I had so many thoughts swirling through my head of things I have to get done and things "on my plate" and I felt ill. I just got done making myself a list. Everything I could possibly think of that was going through my head....I wrote down on paper. That little act of writing helps SO MUCH! I already feel better cause I can see what needs to be done. But now I think I should prioritize my list because it is just sooooo long!

I also just realized today that we leave for our mission trip in 25 days!!!!!!! Oh man....that is not much time! So much to do, but I know we will get it all accomplished and it will come together. Please pray for us if you have a moment. I would greatly appreciate it! :)

Time is flying, lots of things are going on....but all the while...I am growing closer to the Lord and learning so so much right now.

God continues to provide for our needs! Funds for our mission trip keep popping up here and there. It is a blessing and brings tears to my eyes. Praise HIM!

I had an unbelievable weekend! We had a choir workshop at our church...and I learned sooooo much! And trust me...it was much more than learning how to be a better singer. God was working! I have lots to share...so it will have to be for another post! :)

Don't you wish you could just snap your fingers and things would be done? haha! I have to go grocery shopping tonight after work. I actually kind of like grocery shopping....it's just making myself go that I have a hard time with!

I'm thankful for: to-do lists, God's provision, coffee, my husband, special choir workshops and multi-grain cheerios.

Happy Monday Friends! :o)
