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.
