Bumps in the Road

Sometimes I feel like I have no control over my life. I don't mean the good kind of uncontrol where God is in the driver's seat and I'm the passenger. I mean, having a schedule and everyone and everything around me sticking to it. I know, I know, stop the whinning. Yesterday I sent a simple email that led to an unexpected appointment that is leading to another unexpected and unplanned appointment. Unexpected, unplanned and I don't want to go.

When I think about bumps in the road I generally think of hard times. Man, I've had plenty of those. Times when things are really out-of-control and I'm doing all I can just to stay afloat and keep my chin up. I had a perfectly good reminder last night that I am blessed beyond measure and God has been really, really good to me and my family. Life is good even if it's bumpy right now. I've just got too many things going on. I have a hard time departmentalizing and taking on only one at a time. Then, the unexpected throws me off even more.

So, time to get off this blog and get to work. Focus, Jeanette, focus.

Serving the King,

Speaking of feeling out of control... my blog hopping has suffered greatly this summer. I'll be happy to get back into a bit of schedule this Fall & keep up with all my new blog buddies.

I hope your unexpected/unplanned appointments go well & God grants you peace at this time. Great that you can see God's blessings in spite of the chaos you feel around you.

Bumps in the road are ok if the people in the car with you are good company....your good company
