Lately, I have felt myself being irritable. I know it is hard to believe. My daily schedule is starting to wear on me. Driving kids to work and picking them up, it takes 80 minutes of my day! I have alot going on, and my husband wants me home more which I am trying to accomodate, but this driving thing is making me nuts!
Then some of the kids have had some digestive issues, which requires my attention too. Oh, and did I mention that we have 11 puppies? That makes 12 dogs, 3 horses, and 7 cats. Did you know kittens are hard to get rid of? :)
I normally take it all in stride - but I must admit that lately I don't.
I know that God is working in my life and that there are lessons here for me to learn. New ones and old ones that it is time to go deeper with. Sigh.
My God is so faithful, He never gives me more than I can handle without making a way of escape! He will guide me into what He has for me during this time.
I just need to remind myself daily that He has a purpose in all of this.
I like the result of growth, I just don't always like the process.
Here are the word to my favorite hymn:
Be Thou My Vision
Be Thou my Vision, O Lord of my heart;
Naught be all else to me, save that Thou art,
Thou my best thought, by day or by night,
Waking or sleeping, Thy presence my light.
Be Thou my Wisdom, and Thou my true Word;
I ever with Thee and Thou with me, Lord;
Thou my great Father, I Thy true son;
Thou in me dwelling, and I with Thee one.
Riches I heed not, nor man's empty praise,
Thou mine inheritance, now and always;
Thou and Thou only, first in my heart,
High King of heaven, my Treasure Thou art.
High Kind of heaven, my victory won,
May I reach heaven's joys, O bright heav'n's Sun!
Heart of my own heart, whatever befall,
Still be my Vision, O Ruler of all.
