Lest I give off the impression that my life is all circuses and birthday celebrations and warm, cozy holiday get-togethers, I just wanted to quickly share how I feel at the moment. Tired, overwhelmed, discouraged, frustrated, confused, a little angry, and a bit sad.
I know from past experience that these kinds of emotions typically stem from a self-centered focus. I’m feeling sorry for myself all over the place, and what I need to do is take a good look around me and 1.) realize all that I have and 2.) realize how bad life is for so many people.
I vow every year to have a relaxed, joyful December, and it never, ever happens.(I guess I shouldn’t throw in the towel four tiny days into the month.) As soon as I snap out of this, I’ll share a post full of Christmas cheer and one about my baby who turned six on Saturday.
I know what part of the problem is. Satan seems to attack extra hard when he knows we’re on the verge of doing something he’s going to hate. There’s a book coming out January 1st that, Lord willing, will inspire women everywhere with holy lust for their husbands and ignite fires in marriage beds across the nation (or at least in Ohio). I’m only partly kidding. Okay, maybe not at all. 🙂
I would be so grateful for a quick prayer that I would be a godly wife, mom, and woman in the coming days and weeks. Thank you!
