I don’t know what it was this year that had me not feeling in the mood to be thankful?Could it be the gloomy but warm weather, or maybe it was the fact that I wasn’t near my parents?It’s not like we didn’t have a lovely time with my hubby’s family, and it certainly wasn’t like I don’t have a trillion things to be thankful for?But I just felt in a funk, like I cheated my kids and hubby from a great time with me.I don’t know what I would have done differently?Maybe I could have tried to be in a better mood and done a better job of compartmentalizing my ever long to-do list?
I have a massive paper due on Tuesday that I keep trying to push out of my mind and focus on family fun time but can’t.I know that this paper isn’t hard work, but time consuming.My school assignments seem to be lining up nicely as I close in on the last 3.5 weeks of school, but still are tedious.
My house is a mess and even though I want to put the tree up later tonight, I know the job will include cleaning up the front room and kitchen first.
I want to play “Sorry Spin” with my son who bought this game yesterday morning in the hustle and bustle of Black Friday but keep putting it off.
Most importantly I want to take time and rejoice in God’s love for my life.I want to get into memorizing scripture better so I can stand firm in the Word, when life gets me down.I want to get out of the small minded thinking about my life’s up’s and down’s and focus more on the bigger picture of where my life is headed and what God has in store for me.Maybe I’m just getting burnt out, and I think I need a revival.
