Slow and Steady Wins the Race!

Thought I might just squeeze in a quick post between church and home. Literally, I'm typing with my gloves on! Easier said than done! Today was a fairly productive day, so I figured why not top it off with a long overdue blog post? Feb has been a crazy month, I just can't believe that it's coming to an end already. This has really been a month of ups and downs for me, busyness with work and trying to pull things together at home. Lots of visiting. And I am also single again, which I guess is not good or bad, it just is! And in the midst of the craziness, I'm feeling like some big changes are coming....at this time I can't disclose...but as I learn more, I will try to update. I'm learning lots about my limits and God is continuing to stretch them, that's for sure! Last week at Thursday night Kids Club, we were playing a running game, and one of the little 7 year old girls came up to me and told me that she was feeling a little sick and wasn't sure if she would be able to run. "That's fine" I said, "You don't have to run". With a very serious face, she looked at me and said, "Well, is it okay if I speed walk?" Sometimes I need to remember that I'm not in a rush to get through this journey of life. It IS a race to the finish, but sometimes I'm going to feel like all I can do is speed walk. That's all the energy I can muster. And that's okay...the point is perseverance, and continuing to press on when it's hard. So until April I'm going to have to settle for speedwalking....Where are you at? Are you the Road Runner? Speed walking? Or maybe you're on your hands and knees crawling...keep crawling! You can make it!

That's good perspective, Kel. You can do it - and when I come for a visit, I'll make sure you relax :)

You can do it! Praying for you and the decisions you are in the midst of making.

I am in one of those races where people push beds down the streets of some city. Honestly, crazy stuff seems to be happening to change the course of my life... and it all seems to happen "while I was sleeping".... I'm contentedly tucked up in bed and all of a sudden along comes God with some of his posse and I'm carried down the road.
at least that's how it feels today... but to be honest I really am a willing participant. It's kinda nice that I don't feel I can control any of it... it's freeing. God IS in control and that is just the best thing in the world.
