I finished a big portion of my paper last night at about 11:30pm. I emailed it to my teacher and asked for feedback. She gave me a couple of directions to go with research and content. I have three weeks to get it finished....hmmm...do you think I should wait until the night before again? JUST KIDDING! Thanks for all of the support! It was great inspiration to look at my blog and see the moral support from those who have been reading! You gals are great!

Over the last couple of weeks, I have noticed a common theme throughout the blogs that I read...it is the theme of weariness. My own weariness comes from the fact that I am teaching 5 classes, taking 2 classes, and singing in the church Easter program, as well as trying to repair a marriage that was on the brink of disaster just 6 weeks ago. For the first time in my life, I have realized that I truly cannot do it alone and have had to depend on my Lord. For the first time in my life, I feel a peace and a strength that I have never felt before and it is amazing! I am a long way from where I need to be in my walk with the Lord...I still have control issues and there is still stuff I need to deal with...but I am a firm believer that the Lord takes us where we are and goes from there. So...to all those who are weary...I know how it feels and thanks for sharing it so openly on your blogs.


PS. So...shouldn't the blog spell check be able to recognize the word blog? HMMM.....

A) Absolutely, the spell check for a blog should recognize the word 'blog' -- alas, it does not.

B) The control issue is the hardest, but repeatedly reaping the rewards of giving Him control help. May God bless you as you continue to strive to give Him control.

Our marriage was almost dead a couple of years ago too, and it didn't turn around until a group of us married gals got together and read The Power of a Praying Wife, and started practising what we learned. It helped me let go of all the things I was trying to change about my husband, and helped me see my part of the situation. It also made God the main character in both of our lives. Total 180. It was such a miracle. I'll be praying for you guys. That's a lot to deal with.
