A busy week....

Many friends coming in and out....

Children in and out of my house all day (some of them mine, some of them not).....

Toys littering the ground, multiplying just as fast as I pick them up.....

Craft projects all over my kitchen table.....

School papers, which I should as least look at, piled up on my counter.....

Rounds and rounds of pots and pans which get cleaned and magically get immediately dirty again and land back in the sink.....

Ants have decided to invade the house and I have been on the hunt for the last week trying to figure out where these zillions of ants are coming from......

Large shop orders coming in, most with special requests I have to pay attention to, and then madly sew....

A feeling of being so overwhelmed, I listened to my Bible reading from an online site while I sewed. Such a cheater I know........

One big surprise which took me off way off guard......

Travel plans for the year being made and unmade.......

Tone gone most of the week.......

Many long surprise phone calls from family and friends.....

And event I had looked forward to tonight was completely forgotten. I guess I was too busy to remember it...

Watching my son watch "Star Wars" for the first time. Sharing something I used to love as a child with him. He wanted to know why "guy in black breathes funny like he's been exercising or something.".....

God speaking to me in the quiet moments of my heart, when I actually slow down and take a breathe.....

He has richly blessed me. Each friend, child, meal, shop order, and the happy sound of laughter is a blessing.

Thank you Lord for busy weeks. Now next week, can we let it slow down a bit?
