starting the week off tired…but choosing joy

IMG_0059This week is already off the a rough start for me.  Due to allergies and varios other things that are flowing around in my mind, I started off today, Monday, the first day of the work week…..tired.  I hate starting the week off tired as Mondays while representing all the things one must accomplish in the upcoming week, also represent all the potential to do and accomplish a lot of great things.  So this morning as I try to get moving, and try to get myself psyched up for the week ahead, I spent my prayer time asking God to help me to have energy, be joyful about all the possiblities and potential for great things this week has, and just be thankfulf or another day and week of life God has blessed me with.  Through foggy tired eyes, its hard to get excited about all we face in life, and I am by no means saying pray and you automatically will be Suzy Sunshine.  However, through praying I am reminding myself what a great God I serve, and that no matter what the week looks like, He will be there with me and so I have hope and joy!  So if you are like me and slow moving this morning and not looking forward to the week, spend some time talking with our great God and choose joy!


laboring through the day…

Today has been a very nice low key day for us here at Casa De Owens.  It has been a day of cleaning, playing with puppies, and chilling with the kiddos.  Over the past couple of days both Maeven and Judah have had snotty noses and slight colds, so the opportunity for them sleep this afternoon was much appreciated.

We also did a bit of grocery shopping as tomorrow morning we head out for our first weekly FCA huddle of the year at LCHS.  Hopefully the sweet smell of honey buns will draw some extra students in to hear from God’s Word!  Also tomorrow afternoon we have our second bball practice at LCMS!

It’s going to be a busy week so I am thankful for rest today!!!
