Sept 28th

I know I have asked or said this more than once, but where does the time go?  It is hard for me to believe it has been over a month since I have posted a post.  I know I have been extremely busy the past couple of months.  

For one, school started back and it is always crazy the first few weeks of school.  The hardest part is getting back into a routine.  During the summer months I am so use to sleeping in some and then I have to get use to getting up early.  Plus all the meetings that we having right before school starts and during the first few weeks.  I guess I am back into the swing of things.  I did miss some of my kids over the summer months.  

Second, I took over as President of our local Recreation Association.  I have been treasure for many years, bookkeeper and concession stand manager.  It was election time and I had several people ask me to run for President.  At first I really didn't want to because I thought my calling was being the treasurer.  So, I told them I would pray and think about it.  I did and the Lord gave me peace for taking this one position.  I am firm believer that when it is your purpose and it is God's will ... well all the pieces will fall right into place and they have for me.  I am doing things that I never thought I would be able to handle.  I am saying things that I am not sure where those words came from - but I know exactly where they came from.  

Even though I have been overwhelmed with taking over as President and then school starting, I have found time to read.  I have read some amazing books in the last few months.  One, is called "God's Healthy way to Live" - which is helping me so much see where I need to make changes in my life so that I can live for God and be healthy.  I am changing my eating habits.  I am trying to eat more fruits and veggies.  Get more exercise.  Drink more water.  Get lots of rest and less stress.  I know that the changes will come and even though I may fail some days, I am just getting back up and starting again.  I am proud of the changes that I have made so far.   Shoot the biggest thing right now, is keeping my stress level down.  Each day for me is filled with stress - I drive a school bus - I am President at a Recreation and plus all my family duties.  I continue to pray each day that the Lord will take over in the areas that He isn't and to help me with my stress.  

This journey is still amazing.  I love what I do and I am so thankful that God has given me the ability to do what He is having me do.  I pray that God will use me to do His work and reach others.
