It's been a week of complete craziness that happens every year at this time and still I seemed surprised by it....the overwhelming feeling of life, trying to fit it all in, figuring out our new fall schedule, dinner menu, grocery shopping, finding time for all the priorities...quiet time with the Lord and working out.....actually, that's the first time I've thought of trying to fit working out into this schedule, but I REALLY SHOULD fit that in somewhere....or I won't be fitting into my clothes pretty soon, since I am an emotional eater...hold on, I need to get a snack.

My classroom is looking oh so cute and I'm even trying to make cute apple curtains to replace my old white ones, that are now actually tan, their so old. I thought I would whip up some curtains this weekend since I had nothing else to do...ha! We'll see how it goes and I'll be sure to post pictures. Did I mention that I don't really sew!

This is not a post of "whiny-ness" I do have something positive to share. I was so excited on Monday when the Lord gave me that verse from Psalm 138. I printed it, laminated it and hung on my wall by my desk that morning. Later in the day, our principal had us join in a Bible Study on campus (the Song of Solomon Bible Study I was in during the summer) The speaker name was Stephanie Fast. She has an amazing testimony. It is the most sold testimony on Focus on the Family. She was an orphan, discarded and left to die in a garbage dump, eventually adopted by an American missionary family. She spoke on God's sovereignty and the power of the cross in our lives. Guess what her verse was that spoke from? Psalm 138:7-8!!! I LOVE confirmations that seem like coincidences to so many. It was a perfect way for our staff to start the year. Great worship, prayer and message!

Since I woke up this morning, I have been thinking that today is Friday! ahhh, I just might cry now, I need it to be a Friday kind of day and not a Thursday! Oh well, I need an extra day to get ready for school. Off to listen to this song, read and plan my day!


Kari Jobe
The more i seek you,the more i find you
The more i find you, the more I love you
I wanna sit at your feet
drink from the cup in your hand.
Lay back against you and breath,
here your heart beat
This love is so deep,
it's more than I can stand.
I melt in your peace, it's overwhelming

That is an amazing song. Somedays I just play it over and over. It's so comforting to me.

I'll have to check out that testimony. We are getting involved with a ministry at our church (as it tries to move from institutional to missional--impossible? maybe...) that is focusing on "orphans" in the sense of foster kids. Our daughter is still technically a foster child, so they wanted a families perspective, I guess. My blog on the situation is stripped of identifying markers for obvious reasons, but I send friends there, etc. I logged in under that blog if you are ever interested in the adoption saga!

Do you remember going on any of the river trips at PLNU?
