Off and running...

Had to take the time to post something today... I miss my blogging... I have just gotten too busy being busy! How does it get so out of control at times... I know there are plenty of people out there in the same predicament... where do I jump off??? Take a moment & check out Stressed or Blessed at WTW... it is just what I needed to be reminded of... now how do I do something about it??? You would think that a person that has no "real" job should have all the time in the world, but there is so much I want to get done & so little time to get it all done.
I am reading a book called, "The Original Sanctuary"... I am only in the 4th chapter & I have gotten so much out of it... it is mind blowing for me. The writers of this book will be speaking at our church next weekend & at Night Out For Ladies too... I am really hoping to finish the book before than. So I thought I would share a little paragraph from the book that has to do with my busyness. This is from a section of the book titled, "from the heart of God to me."
"Your value lies not in what you do, but in what you are. And you are My child! You have endowed abilities and talents given to you out of My resources to complete the tasks that I have set before you. If you are pursuing My plans and My Kingdom, the resources from which you will draw are endlessly Mine. However, if the plans are yours, you are on your own."
Are my plans God's or am I running my own agenda??? Something to think about.
Also, wanted to share this card I did at the scrapbooking retreat last weekend... it is a "wiper" card... that SU "bambi" set is so cute... once again it is my sister's set not mine.

Today is the Harvest Festival at church so I need to get scooting... Luke & I are "team leaders" of the inflatables... yes, that is right what we use to call "moon walks"... should be fun.

Thanks for stopping... be blessed... with a grateFUL HEART, carin

Thanks so much for pointing me to "stressed or blessed?". Much needed as I am a Martha!
