Amazing!

Amazing how THE KID'S KEEP ME YOUNG AND MAKE ME FEEL OLD ALL AT THE SAME TIME...

Amazing how AT THE END OF EACH DAY I FEEL LIKE I'VE BEEN ON A TREADMILL- RUNNING ALL DAY LONG BUT NOT SEEMING TO GET ANYWHERE...

Amazing how TIME FLIES...

Amazing how I HAVE ALL THESE GOOD INTENTIONS... (but that's all many remain)

Amazing how COFFEE USED TO BE MY "WAKE UP JUICE" IN THE MORNING, BUT NOW IT'S MY "KEEP ME AWAKE JUICE" EACH AFTERNOON.

Amazing how GOD IS ALWAYS FAITHFUL EVEN WHEN I'M NOT!

That's my last couple months in a nut shell. Busy with the kids, many school activities, leading our school's Girl Scout Troop, and trying to keep up with all the everyday life demands at home (cleaning, cooking, laundry, etc.). Feeling like all the things I want to get done, especially with this new house and our home renovation- "La Vieja casa"- isn't happening because of all the other busyness. Feeling like I'm constantly on the go, but not really going anywhere. I'm exhausted... ALL THE TIME! Feeling like I've let "a full plate" of busyness crowd out quality family time and my quiet time with God. I realize I must be careful, because at a blink of the eye, another day, week, & month will pass and I could still be in this same place. Heaven forbid! I KNOW MANY READING THIS POST CAN RELATE.

I reflect over the craziness of life these past couple months, and recognize that through it all, God is always faithful! He never leaves me; He gives me strength when I need it; He gives me constant peace and comfort even though I don't deserve it. He loves me more than I can comprehend, again, nothing I did to deserve. Even though I haven't been faithful in seeking Him, He is forever faithful in seeking me.

Today I stop and bow to Him in AWE! I think "Amazing"...

...Amazing how GOD IS AMAZING!
