One New Thing – October 22nd

The last few One New Things rocked my world. I planned on doing an easy One New Thing this week. Until…

I found out someone signed up and paid for our whole family to participate in a 5k Turkey Trot.

My One New Thing this week is to tie my shoes…

and get ready to run!!!! (or jog… Ok – probably walk – but I’ll be ready!)

Trapped on Train Tracks

Life feels like I’ve been railroaded.

If I turn around, I might see that chasing me.

I can…

A. Not blog for awhile

B. Post some of the blogs that are waiting in my drafts folder.

C. Get REAL.

Well, I hope you picked C, because that is what I’m going with.

I feel like a train is chasing me down and there’s no option but to just keep moving. Because giving up or jumping off is not an option. So I am trucking along. Wow, that sounds so dramatic. Nothing that dramatic is going on over here. (Will someone please inform my teens of that?) We are all relatively healthy and relatively happy. We have a job, food, roof, and a car. So why do I feel this way?

What’s going on?

Well, the doctor appointment was today. All is well. I’m so glad I didn’t spend all week worried because of my One New Thing. (those of you I emailed in a panic… don’t tell ‘k?) No really, I did spend more time praying than wringing my hands in worry.

And… the doctor appointment was today. There will be major changes around here – all in the name of good health and torturing the kids. More on that later… but first, here’s hint: a FAMILY One New Thing is coming up!

The other things are spiritual in nature. God keeps giving me things to think about. I feel like the same concepts are following me around. God is trying to tell me something. I’m just not getting it. Now I’m stuck on the train tracks until I get it. Just me, God, and lots to think about.

I think.

I pray.

I try.

I fail.

I keep trying.

…and failing…

….and trying…

because I know that He will not give me more than I can handle.

So I’ll keep building bridges… even when I fail.
