A Quick Update

I haven't been around here a whole lot lately. Many reasons... life is busy, taking time to rest, and taking the time to listen to God and what he would have me share here with you, to name a few.

We've had a great January, February, and so far March is looking pretty good, too. Fun times with church and school activities, Cub Scouts, family time, as well as being completely swamped at work. Swamped at work is good as it keeps me busy (I mean, really, who wants to go sit in an office and just twiddle their thumbs all day long?), but it keeps me moving so fast that I leave mentally exhausted just about every day.

So, by the time late evening comes and the house is quiet, I struggle to sit down and type anything even slightly intelligible. And, really, it's been good. It's given me some much needed quiet, downtime in the evenings. Time to think and pray and determine exactly what God would have me to share.

I have started a great Bible Study about experiencing God in the workplace. One thing I really like about this study is that even if you don't go to a formal office everyday this can still be applicable to your life. Wherever your workplace is (office, home, school, etc) this is a great study. It deals with realizing that whatever you do and wherever you are that you are part of God's plan. It deals with your relationships with others and how to live well in an environment that is very often more in line with the world's agenda rather than God's. So far, I've really enjoyed it... and, I'm guessing that you'll probably hear more about this from me in the future. :)

We've just started off our Spring Break fun for this year. A great time we have together as a family each year and a great time to take a break from the day to day routine and just relax and enjoy.

Once we're back in the normal routine I plan to back around here a little more. I have lots of posts floating around in my head.. just awaiting some clear direction as to where to start.

Until then.....

Yup, work keeps me hopping as well. I am glad that I am not the only one who gets a little worn out :)

Sounds like a great study. What is the name of it? I would interested in it.

Thank you for sharing from your heart - have fun during spring break.

Love & peace,

Thank you Melanie for sharing your heart with us. Your post is very similar to mine (than you for the encouraging comment by the way). Sounds like a great study and I would be interested in the title as well.
Have a blessed day my friend! And thank for offering to pray - I sure could use it! Will be praying for you too...
Love in Christ,

Would love to hear more about the Bible study. We just finished up our group one last week, and I now need one to work on at my own pace. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated!
