I am starting a new Bible study tomorrow night with a group of ladies I have yet to meet. I am looking forward to it. We are studying the Book of Philippians. I will be a week behind as they began last week, but I will catch up. Trying to work out a time schedule for everything I have on my plate ... my study time with God ... my prayer time ... my family ... my job ... my Mary Kay business ... and the other day-to-day things which occur ... is getting a bit challenging but I am loving it. I enjoy being busy. It stops me from allowing the little things in life to become big things. It takes the focus off of me and what I consider my problems in life, and it puts my attention where it needs to be ... on Him!
Tomorrow evening my son and I will sit down to order his cap and gown, his announcements, and his invitations for his senior party. Just thinking about it makes me all teary-eyed, but I am so excited for him. He is struggling with some issues which he shared with me this week, so please keep him in prayer. It is both exhilarating and fearful to embark on this new season in his life. He wants to mature and become the person God created him to be, but he also wants to remain mommy's boy. I think for awhile at least he can do a bit of both and get by with it. What do you think? He will always be my little boy no matter how old he gets. Just as my daughter, who is married with grown sons, will always be my little girl. They simply grow up in reality but never in our hearts.
I have jumped back in the saddle in getting my Mary Kay business off and running. We have a conference coming up in Virginia Beach soon and I am excited to be a part of it. I look forward to getting away for a few days to just have fun and laugh with other ladies. I am staying an extra night just to have some quiet time. I feel I so need it!
My brother ... the one who suffers with Parkinson's ... will be starting 7.2 this Saturday. I am excited to watch his health improve. I am confident 7.2 is going to give him a better quality of life. I have heard how it helped someone with multiple sclerosis. They commented 7.2 could be their cure for life. I am hoping the same for my brother. I will keep you posted. I am going over to his house on Friday to get him started and go over everything with him. I am psyched!
I started back on 7.2 on Monday, and I have already lost 2.5 pounds. I had gotten off of it for a bit as I struggled with my addiction. I could not focus on both at the same time. Foolish, huh? It is my character. I work better when I only have to deal with one major crisis at a time. Of course, as life has it more times than not, this is not the case. I think we are all dealing with numerous eggs in our baskets these days and doing the best we can.
Ok, I have to run. It is getting late and I am tired. If I do not get my sleep, then I will not be worth anything and I will not accomplish much! Have a blessed evening!
