I should be getting ready for church, but I need to vent and I can't think of any other place to do this right now, plus Noah's still up and its very hard to get ready while he's around....and Mickey Mouse is holding all his attention right now! We finally got the official word that Richard's car is totalled...we could have told them that! So we have to make a decision on what to do. Richard and I are on complete opposite ends of the spectrum when it come to what we want to buy as a car. I was up till midnight last night thinking about it...couldn't sleep, had bad dreams when I did sleep. I've prayed about it, wrote about it and I still don't feel content with the choice we are about to make. I'm also completely overwhelmed with going back to work plus doing everything around this house. Richard is wearing himself out at work (back still bothering him) that by the time he gets home, he has to lay on the floor to feel better. So I still feel like a single parent...thank the Lord for my mom this past week. Work is stressful because I've become the only counselor in our school...I had a part time counselor before. I have so many things to figure worry about buying a new car. I just want peace right now...I want to feel like we are making the best choice for us, not the easy fix for the moment. So we'll call this a prayer request, please pray that Richard will find a way to rest his back, so that he can get better, he has another Dr. appointment tomorrow. And some prayers for me, that I will remember to put my trust in the Lord.
Guess I should get ready for church, I definitely need it today! I'm teaching Children's Church today, so maybe one of the kids will open my mind a bit!

Praying for you both right now. Letting go is the hardest thing to do for us mommy/wives but it's not in our control anyway. Rest is Him and know that whatever happens, He already has it all worked out. I know all about the hubby with back pain and it is a hard thing for you both to deal with but try to remember that there is always someone that is facing much worse than we are. Seek HIM!!!!

Oh yeah and.... Love you!!

Mom said...'ll all work out...I promise you. And if the decisions that are made turn out to be a mistake, you move on to new ones.

Know I am always there for you to vent to...I've been told I'm a good listener....and I can help anyway you need.

I love you and know that all will work out!
