Overwhelmed



© Printmaster



"To achieve great things, two things are needed:  a plan, and not quite enough time." - Leonard Bernstein

OK, I have a basic plan, and I definately don't have enough time...

"Don't say you don't have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michaelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson,  and Albert Einstien. " - H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

 Yeah, but I'm also quite positively NOT a Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michaelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson OR Albert Einstein...

"The only reason for time is so that everything doesn't happen at once." - Albert Einstein

Al, that's a good theory, but in practice - welcome Murphy's Law! Why does it seem that everything DOES happen at once, and at the WORST POSSIBLE TIME??

In the words of my wise husband,  "LIFE HAPPENS. Deal with it." Adjust. Rearrange. Teach the kids a life lesson in dealing with the inevitable. 

I guess it's time to take my own advice. What happened to yesterday's scenes of peace?

So I ask myself, am I acting in obedience to my Heavenly Father? In submission to my husband (in one accord with him)? Have I bathed the day (and the particular situation) in prayer? (Funny how it's so easy to leave that 'til last). If so, then it's time to lay these burdens down  - time to place them in my Father's more capable hands.

Still,

  1. Cindy,

    I sent you a comment earlier, but I am not sure that it went through, so I am typing it again. I apologize in advance if you get a "repeat message."

    At any rate, in my last post, I was saying that I enjoyed the quote from Albert Einstein regarding time. However, I think your husband's quote is much for accurate as well as truthful.

    It's quite easy to become overwhelmed in today's world. I guess this is why we need to rely upon the Lord, which is not always easy but definately necessary.

    By the way, thank you for visiting my blog the other day. I hope that you will visit again soon in the future. :)

    Blessings,

  2. Hello Cindy!
    I just read your comment at one of my blogs about thyroid health. Thank you for commenting and for the prayers. Yes, I will be praying for your health as well. God bless you and may you grow stronger each and every day.

    My mom had what you mentioned plus several other cancers in her thyroid. She no longer has her thyroid either.

    I'll be having Ablation in November and pray it all goes well.
    This has been somethin' else!

    Hope you'll visit my blogs again sometime. How did you find me?
    Hope to hear from you,
    d
