I'm not quite sure when "Hello" went from a greeting to a one-word question meaning "Hey, are you listening to me?"

However, I'm pretty sure it may have started with God talking to me. "Hello? Are you listening to me? I can make this a lot easier. But, you are going to have to stop and listen to me for a minute!"

The last two weeks have been NUTS! I feel as though I have been bombarded from every direction. I have managed to keep myself standing up right physically.

Emotionally has been a different story. Look at me the wrong way and I will tear up instantly. And, let me tell you . . . one little tear swims to the corner of my eye and it's like the Hoover dam breaks. The sobs, the snot it's a bit nasty.

So finally last night, using my dear Husband, God finally got me to listen. If I would let go of the tasks, jobs, responsibilities, etc. that He has entrusted me with things would be a lot easier.

What? He "called" me to do this, but I'm suppose to give it to him! That's a little contradicting isn't it?

So after some "just me and God" time, I was gently reminded that God didn't call me to be a "do-er" He called me to be a vessel!

It's not what we do, it's what we let him do through us!

His way is always so simple, His yoke is so easy! And I am so hard-headed!!!

I'm off to work on being a vessel! Happy Tuesday!

I prayed for you after last wed nite. some people have 'ah-ha' moments, we have let-me-thump-you-on-the-back-of-the-head "HELLO?" moments.

This is great. I'm not sure why this is, but whenever I 'get this' I simply forget it in a few days' time. It's a circle for me I've yet to get off! I think I need lists....lists of things to NOT take on my shoulders, into my head, the whole thing! xo
