What now?


Here I am in N.C--without my man.
Keith has gone home to help out with those who have received damage from the storm.
Feeling kind of lost.
I am sure the feeling will pass.....but right now....whaaaaaa!
I know.....get over it.
I'm not sure how long he will be gone......that is strange too. This is the first time this has happened since we were married. Yes, we have spent time apart....but we knew how long it would be.
I am comfortable where we are. Keith has asked our neighbor and the owner to keep an eye out for us...so if anything comes up with the camper they can help.
And, I am glad that he will be there to help family and friends.
Keith has a cousin in Baton Rouge where they were hit a little harder by the winds....so he plans to go there and do a little work.
So here we are.
I know God wants to use this time for He and I to work on a few things.
I have been kind of funky.....and a little depressed.
Funky is not a good place to be.
Mom always said....Where ever you go-there you are.
So here I am.
Time for change.
This is all about being honest right?
So there you have it.
The winds of change are a blowing.........they had better or there is going to be a stink
in the air. :)
Wonder if Sarah ever felt this way?

Praying for this set apart time to be focused and intentional--not funky and scattered. Praying for you, my friend and modern day, Sarah (Princess!). As Beth said at the conference, you are an heiress...our Father loves you so!!

I love you dear one.

I love your mom's saying "Where ever you go - there you are.

Keeping all in prayer.

Oh girl...... I am so sorry but maybe this is going to be a good time to focus! That is so hard when you are kinda depressed...... I am going to pray.....My heart has been broken for you for a while now and even more today.. We are just women... I have been reading and doing this study on the One and Only for just two days now and it is touching my heart.. Remember to hold on to HIS hand while walking in the darkness.. because HE is always walking in the light........ Love ya! Praying for Ya!

I sometimes feel at loose ends when my man first goes away. Hope that Keith is not gone too long. How great that you have a man who wants to go help! In the meantime, enjoy some girl time and hang in there! Thanks for the honest post.

Of course Sarah felt like this. Haven't we all. Take advantage of this time. Take your little i-pod shuffle and take a stroll thru the beautiful county/mountainside (not too far) and listen to praise music as you talk to your Daddy. He loves you and wants to talk and walk with you. He doesn't have funky or depressed in His vocabulary. Let Him replace these human words with spiritual words like peace, joy, contentment etc. Pursue Him! He is faithful and will respond! By the way, I'm still waiting for you to tell me what limb or organ you want from me to change places with you right now. No, I mean it! RIGHT NOW/THIS MINUTE. God gives Grace to the humble and I am digging deep.
