Giving in...

Well, here I am . Life has been a bit of a blur lately. I honestly can't believe that it is already the 15th of April. My boys are back in town and I get to go to the game on Sunday. Can't wait to check out the new digs and see what everyone has been talking about for the last couple of years. I am a little nervous though, as the last time I went to an outdoor stadium, (Kaufman)(in April) I FRIED! When I came home from that trip, someone asked me "Where did you go? Kauai?". I had a t-shirt tan line for the whole summer and had to be in two weddings that year with strapless dresses...oh the joys of being pasty white!
So, part of the reason that life has been a blur lately is that I feel like there is a lot of stresses going on. Financially, I am not where I would like to be. I feel like this is a constant in my life. I want to be a wise steward of the money that God has given me and feel like I need a lot of work in that area. Health wise, I am also struggling a bit. I have had neck issues since I got in a car accident 6 or 7 years ago and they seem to be in a flair up stage. This causes a lot of headaches and neck problems. I am not a fan of taking drugs (yes I know...it's medicine) but sometimes I have to just so I can get to work the next day. Flexeril is a funny thing.
Faith wise, I feel God working...more and more. I couldn't be more thankful. I love my church (Substance, you should check it out sometime!!) and am so thankful for the amazing friends and family that God has blessed me with to continue in this area. It is all a work in progress. All I know, is that at the end of my life, I want to be able to stand before God and know this verse is true for my life.

I have fought the good fight, I have finished the course, I have kept the faith;
2 Timothy 4:7

Nothing else matters. All of the plans,goals,dreams and rules I have need to be guided and directed by that. May the way I act, the words I speak and the thoughts that I think....be guided by that plan.

So sorry to hear about your neck pain, Abs! Enjoy the stadium! Maybe we can catch a game when I'm home in June?
