"I speak to God .  I don't really want more time: I just want enough time. Time to breathe deep and time to see real and time to laugh long, time to give You glory and rest deep and sing joy and just enough time in a day not to feel hounded, pressed, driven or wild to get it all done--yesterday. "- Ann Voskamp

Thank's Dana for this book I'm reading, the quote above is something I read this morning. This is kind of where I"m at right now.

I feel like I live in a constant state of tired lately, and I'm not sure of the solution. I feel like all this pressure is coming down  on me and sometimes all I want to do is run away. I wonder how I can make life different, how I can eliminate something? What can I eliminate Where shoudl my priorities be? I know spending time with the Lord helps but I feel like something has got to give? Does anyone read my blog that has any thoughts? Bueller??? Bueller?

Life is good

A poet once wrote: “As a rule, man’s a fool. When it’s hot, he wants it cool. And when it’s cool, he wants it hot. Always wanting what is not.”

Life is good. I have to remind myself of that.
I have a great job.  I get to train and license families to take care of children, then match children and families who I feel like fit together.  It's cool because its an opportunity to change people's lives , both the children and the people who have come to help. This is what I'm here for right now, God has given me a great purpose that I dont' always realize. I like what I do, but its hard, and I need Jesus. I get tired...exhausted actually, and the work is never done. People don't always appreciate what I do, or know the extent of what I do..but thats ok because I'm not doing it for them anyways.

When I want to complain and whine about what I wish I had..I do have to remind myself to take a minute and look at what God is currently DOING. It's a great thing to see christians really get on board with loving kids who have come from real brokenness. It's a great thing to see people changed and see people learn and grow from their experiences with these children.'s good.
