*UNDONE* pt.2

Yesterday I posted a little about the women's conf. I attended last weekend. I ended asking you what mask were you wearing?  Did you think about it? Keri also talked about how we, as women, mothers, wives, try to remain strong. We think by remaining strong we can allow others to be weak. We can be there for them in their time of need...then when it's our time of need we feel we can't show it...let others in...take off that mask!?!?!

Keri said "I can see him BIG but sometimes I don't see him small enough." Isn't that so true...we see God in the BIG things that happen in our lives. We come to him with big issues, problems, etc. but when it's something small we don't find oursleves always turning right to God. Well, being honest...I don't. I want to, I pray that EVERY action, thought, and situation my first reaction is to talk to God, pray, give it to him.

We have to stop holding on to the "stuff" so that we have freedom. In our weakness he is strong...sharing our weakness will not only set you free but could free so many others as well.

One thing to remember for sure is we aren't ever alone...NEVER! Isn't that awesome. God promises us he will never leave nor never forsake us. You have to find peace in that!!!

As  the weekend went on so many thoughts went through my head. The Lord spoke to me in a special way last weekend. He helped me see so many things I always knew in my head but I didn't allow my heart to truly feel it.

As I mentioned before the title of the conf. was "undone." Anna spoke about the different meanings for the word undone....one of them being "unravelling." I liked that example the best because in "ing" means it's still happening. It's not a finished product. It's a continuous process, not one to be completed overnight.


 As I walked out the doors of the church and rushed off to being set up for Sloane's birthday party I had so many thoughts running through my mind.  I have felt once her birthday is over and we clean up...we begin preparing for the next birthday. Isn't that what every family does!?!? (Please just say "yes." Ha!) With that means we celebrate Wyatt....but also means I am flooded with so many memories. I know if you have been pregnant is seems as if those last 10 weeks just drag on, and on, and on. Well those are the ones I remember the most but also the ones that hurt the most.

For 3 years about this time my mask goes on...I just want to make it through the day. I ache inside but NOT THIS YEAR. I will not allow myself to deal with it how I have in the past...I WILL NOT.

So...as I wrap up another heartfelt post please take a second and say a prayer for us as a family during this time. Thanks in advance, from the bottom of my heart! Happy weekend!!!
