Happy Father’s Day friends! I must say that I have really missed my family lately especially today. These past two weeks (I can’t believe it’s already been two whole weeks!) have definitely been an adjustment period for me. I think it’s just because this is all a little unfamiliar to me and change always takes some time getting use to.
We all have a schedule we maintain usually on a daily basis and for me it was: Monday-Friday – Get up, go to work, come home from work, wind down, eat dinner (Wednesdays go to Wave Group), and go to sleep – Saturday – Really this is the only day I didn’t have a set schedule, just whatever happens happens – Sunday – Wake up, go to church, have lunch (usually with friends or family), sometimes the afternoon was up for grabs for whatever, come home, wind down, go to bed. It’s funny though because the days I would look forward to most were (obviously) Saturday and Sunday- the two days in the whole week that were least likely to be all planned out, the two days most open for anything to happen, to truly enjoy, and to relax.
During my scheduled days I would constantly think of this trip we were about to embark on and what all we needed to get done before we left. Thoughts and worries always flooded my mind. Now what I find myself thinking is where are we going to live when we get home?, when will we be home?, will we have enough money to last the entire trip?, and so on and so forth. It seems like the worry, the questions, the troubles, the stress never ends. I have even had thoughts about just going home (I know! Crazy, right?!) But then I had a revelation – I’m only going to live once so I need to stop and smell the roses but not just smell the roses – Enjoy them! I think God shows up when we stop trying to have everything figured out (Cuz let’s face it – that will never happen), stop worrying so much, and start relying on Him more.

it makes me smile because it’s true 🙂
