Terrific Tuesday

Tuesday, October 16, 2012

Off to an Errors and Omissions meeting at our other office today from 9-1. We learn how to prevent making mistakes. It will be a break from the office.

Only had two people angry with me yesterday. I hate those days. Seems like people are stressed and upset and they like to take it out on us. Need to learn to let it roll off my back and not take it on.

Started teaching the Bible study Unglued by Lesa Terkeurst tonight. Not sure how many ladies we will have. It's about learning to make wise choces in the midst of raw emotions.

Hubby has a job interview on Friday. I am weary and praying he can finally get something. We get hopeful with each interview and then are disappointed when they never call back or send a rejection letter. Not sure where God wants him/us. This one is local so we'll see. I know God has a plan and maybe we aren't where we need to be yet. I know He is in control and I'm learning to trust Him even when I don't see daylight in the tunnel ahead.

Off to make it a great day!

I wish you both patience and some GREAT luck AND SOON!!!!!!

Keep on keeping on and don't let yourself get down.

  When the right job comes along for your husband, he will get it. Sometimes waiting is so hard but that is when we develop patience. At least you are employed which is a blessing.

    Kathleen.. You are right. God has you where he wants you and one of the hardest thing we humans can do is let him take control. Good luck on your Bible study. If it's about raw emotion perhaps it can help you let your stress work roll off of your shoulders. I know when you work for the public it's hard not to take it personally. Been there and done that.

Good luck to your hubby on his job interview... emoticon .. Go hubby!!!

Have a terrific Tuesday ~ Donna

Magnificient Monday

Monday, October 15, 2012

Had a good rest day. Started off with a humdinger headache but it eased off as the day went by. Got the rest of the flower starts planted and some bulbs planted and some bushes trimmed....I know it's late to be doing it but just took off the whiskers that had stragled up.

Wonder what this week will bring?

Off to make it a great day!

Busy day...went to co-worker's daughter's graduation this morning...then back home to transplants some plants a friend gave me and then painting the deck until 4:30 and then a quick change and off to dinner with our Corvette Club...then back home to cover the deck in case it rains. We now have the upper deck painted but now the lower deck and walkway...UGH! Will it ever get done. Hubby doing a mighty fine job. It will be well done.

Still have around 4 plants to transplant and I will have them all planted. Supposed to rain tonight and it will would have been nice to have had them all in...but oh well....

Weekends seem to go by so quickly....

Fantastic Friday

Friday, October 12, 2012

Attitude at work is improving. Maybe it became un-glued from letting things build up and had a melt down????

Closing the office at noon today to attend viewing of co-worker (at our other location)'s mother in law. My boss does have some redeeming qualities. Focus on the good. Busy weekend. Attending co-worker's daughter graduation ceremony from school Saturday morning. Coming back to help hubby with painting the deck. Also friend gave me a boat load of plants to plant. Then dinner with Corvette group Saturday night. Also need to work on lesson for Bible Study starting up Tuesday night....

Off to make it a great day by exercising...didn't want to get out of my warm bed but knew I wouldn't be walking at lunchtime today...and I'll be tired after work need to get moving this AM.

Off to make it a great day!

Thankful Thursday

Teaching a Ladies Bible Study starting next week. Interesting how God gives us the right material at the right time.

Ung lued Making Wise Decisions in th e Midst of Raw Emotions
Lysa TerKeurst admits that she, like most women, has experiences where others bump into her happy and she comes emotionally unglued. We stuff, we explode, or react somewhere in
between. What do we do with these raw emotions? Is it really possible to make emotions work for us instead of against us? Yes, and in her usual inspiring and practical way, Lysa will show you how. Filled with gut-honest personal examples and Biblical teaching, Unglued
will equip you to:
Know with confidence how to resolve conflict in your important relationships.
Find peace in your most difficult relationships as you learn to be honest but kind when offended.
Identify what type of reactor you are and how to significantly improve your communication.
Respond with no regrets by managing your tendencies to stuff, explode or react somewhere in between.
Gain a deep sense of calm by responding to situations out ofyour control without acting out of control.

God has a sense of humor doesn't He? Feeling like I'm starting to become unglued with Work, Taking care of Mother In Law and her an Extra Grace Required Person, hubby out of work, Son and daughter in law's adoption falling through, working out and packing lunches trying to keep track of calories and not seeing alot of progress etc. etc. etc. and as one SparkFriend are trying to hold it all together. I feel at times like those old skits where a guy kept spinning plates and then hurrying back to keep them all spinning. This study will be good for me. God always knows what I need. Plus the accountability of staying in His Word...I've drifted away gradually from daily study of His Word. I am a ponderer and I think that's why I came unglued on Tuesday. I've been stuffing things inside and trying to keep all my plates spinning and make everyone happy. I don't think I'm usually an unglued person that's why it upsets me so.

So we begin today trying to trust that God is in Control and to listen for His still small voice to direct my day and I move forward embracing the challenges ahead of me.

On the fun side a friend gave me all kinds of starts of perinnials. Now where to put them all...I don't get to puter in my flowers like I used to and I miss it. It's calming and fun to see God's beauty in bloom.

  God does have a sense of humor and how wonderful to be able to see it. I think that is a big step in itself. You are a busy and productive lady working for the Lord. Have a blessed day!
