On Wasting Time

Reese's BEAUTIFUL childhood church in Shreveport  

Am I wasting time?


Currently in my life I have approximately 1,857,576 questions that do not have answers. For a type A planner like myself it is a wonder my brain hasn't exploded from the pressure (although I am 99% sure if it were to explode all that would come out is glitter and coffee... which if you think about it is quite festive). All 5 W's and an H are covered in the aforementioned 1,857,576 questions(who, what, where, when, why and how-- for those of you how have been out of the classroom for a while) which is quite overwhelming.

I feel like I lost October. Swimming somewhere in my memory October and all it's shenanigans will be a distant memory as we press on toward November. I really struggled with the idea of possibly "wasting time". Wasting time is one of my biggest pet peeves. The more I thought about October the more I realized that yes, I did let a lot of things go by the wayside (the blog, the gym, etc) but there is a reason the Lord has really been teaching me some crucial lessons, preparing me for whatever the next steps are in life and on some level really humbling me to his plan. I've always joked that I would give up my sharpie when planning but Jesus couldn't take away my pencil. So no, I haven't been "wasting time", but yes, I am excited to be back in my groove.

AND just because I think he is the cutest....

Seriously... where in the world did October go? I feel like I need to waste some time to reflect. For sure. You are gorgeous, by the way :)

I've been working a lot on taking things one day at a time & learning what balls are OK to drop. (like only blogging 3 times a week instead of 4... or getting take out) .... October was a crazy month for me & sadly it looks like November won't be any easier. oh well. learning to be grateful & rest when I can.

YES YES YES. God has been teaching me SO MUCH about patience, His timing, His plans, etc... Even though I think mine are always awesome, in hindsight, I can always tell that His are better... Even when it seems like I know best. :) It's good to know I'm not the only one struggling or feeling like I'm wasting time.

You got this pretty lady! Those first few months of school are brutal. I am officially feeling in the swing of things and it's already the end of the 2nd 6 weeks. Time spent doing things we want to do is never time wasted.

"which if you think about it is quite festive" Hahah! I'm sure Disney would explode out of mine...

If you find October please point me in the right direction. Every month, and consequently every year, just seems to go faster! Thank you for inspiring me to get back into the mode of slowing down so I don't miss something.
PS- OOOBER cute photo of you and your hunny!!!
