Ch.Ch.Ch.Changes: A Wordy Wednesday

Life has a way of changing more quickly than I can keep up with sometimes.

more laundry

less sleep

more quick meals

less baking and home cooking

more homework and reading

less blogging

more money needed for school "things"

less time for bargain hunting

more housework

less time for friends

more tears

more smiles

more hugs

more kisses

(somebody is possibly feeling a little sentimental about these little people growing up so quickly)

I don't do super well with change.   at all.

I become emotional, sentimental, apprehensive...

My mind over-thinks things.  Guilt and fear overwhelm me.

Thankfully, there's a Constant in my life.

A Constant that carries me through these times.

A Constant that steadies my crazy mind.

Lamentations 3:21-25
But this I call to mind, and therefore I have hope:   
The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases; 
his mercies never come to an end; 
they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.   
"The LORD is my portion," says my soul, "therefore I will hope in him."  
The LORD is good to those who wait for him, to the soul who seeks him.

I totally know what you mean on change! We(me and change) have a love hate relationship!

Great verses....I mean if I needed them they would have been great!:-)

Hope your week is going well! Jake starts pre-k next week! So for the first time in 12.5 years I will have more than 5 seconds to myself. Weird

Sorry for the "book" I just wrote!

Thanks, dear friend. You're one of those "I thank my God upon every remembrance of you" people. I am so blessed! Forgot to tell you, the other day I put a shirt on Titus that was from the twins and reminded him where we got it. When Andrew came home, Titus says to him, "Daddy, this shirt is from Carson and McClain. Do you remember Carson and McClain? They are my special boys. They are boys that are my friends." --Jess

Totally understand about the changes - I hate change as well - one of the reasons I do not enjoy this newborn phase, it is so hard to know what to do & it seems to change every day! And the tears....oh, the tears. Davey will be 6 weeks on Tuesday & has been sleeping better, and I finally am starting to feel a little better...but it's still so hard!! Hope you can relax some after your kids get settled in at school for the year!
