overwhelmed moment.

i know, in my heart, that things are on the path they're supposed to be on. that everything i'm trying to do right now is for good. that i can do it because He will strengthen me. but for a brief second right now, i'm feeling overwhelmed, unable and spread thin. i'm afraid of failing, afraid i already have.

**i really should only be rejoicing in this moment! all three babies at my house have been asleep for nearly an hour. i mean, two have been sleeping for longer, but all three have been sleeping for an hour. miraculous!**

Sister, there is nothing in this world you cannot do if you really put your mind to it. You are an incredibly strong woman and the faith that you have in the Lord is overwhelming to me. Remember that he is there with you and won't leave you. You just have to let him lead you. You haven't/won't fall if you just let yourself believe like I know you do. I love you very much!

Ok, this is silly, but sometimes when I am feeling overwhelmed by everything, I play pretend. For some reason it helps me if I act like I'm a nanny and housekeeper and cook and personal shopper and, well, you get the idea. This is a very spiritual approach, I know. Please don't make fun of me. ;)
