Crazy Weekend

Tuesday, April 06, 2010

This last weekend started with me going to Larimer County Offices to get info about our cabin's landlocked situation. I was there all Friday morning. I then went to my Dad's where I found one sister very upset - she just had met my father's fiancee. Anyway, things kinda blew up at the end of the day. All of our frustrations came out and we let Dad really know how we felt and the fears we had. There were a lot of tears. Things weren't really resolved and the next day (Sat) was still tense. Though by the time I left for home that afternoon, things had calmed down a bit and apologies were made.

I went home and finished making my daughter's Easter dress - so no downtime for me.

My eating was not very good -- I had Taco Bell Fri, and pizza Sat night. Ugh! My exercise was pretty much nil this last week except I did to the 10 min walks, and then at Dad's was carrying boxes etc, going up and down stairs.

Easter though was a good day. We all were back at Dad's for Easter dinner - probably the last family get together for a holiday meal. We had a good time of fellowship. My sisters and I, along with our husbands and Dad sat down in the afternoon and made a game plan on what still needed to be done. We all decided we need a weekend off next week!!!

I have been studying Beth Moore's Daniel and this last week one of the points was James 4:2 "You have not because you ask not". I brought we needed to pray for some specific items to happen in the next two months. We all agreed and then spent 45 minutes in prayer. It was so sweet and healing to pray together as a family!

I am working on my attitude of accepting my Dad getting married (they have set the date for May 30), I know God is in control and as I Christian I must forgive and accept her.

Yesterday, I was still very tired and didn't do much except for my 10 min walk in the house. But today I decided it was time to get back into focus and I did a 60 min cardio routine.
I am going to try to get my healthy routine back this month even though everything is still a whirlwind around me.

    Carrie - I was so touched to read that you suggest & your family agreed to a Prayer Time together -- wow! God will use that in many ways (and not just in answering your specific prayers, either) I am glad to hear you get a weekend off -- I think that's really important! Try to keep it for relaxing/resting -- don't fill it up with different work (even though I'm sure you have lots of things on the back burner at home). Do your best on food &exercise choices -- and be kind to yourself (if that doesn't involve high fat foods!!) Hugs, Susie

    Dearest...thank God for His amazing grace that He offers to us each day. Our Rock when our world is swirling around us. What a beautiful gift that you reminded your family of the power and healing comfort of prayer. Not all families (even those Christian!) would (sadly) be able to spend 45 minutes in prayer. Keep strong in all areas.

    I pray everything works out well for you. I know it can be really frustrating when you go through things you don't understand. Keep your hope and trust in the Lord. He is an ever present help in the time of trouble. Blessings and hugs, Shirley

    Alot of things happen in our lives that puts us in a state of a whirwind but we have to keep trusting God. Even in those things we don't understand. I can relate to what you are going through because I too, am at this time faced with things happening that I just don't understand. But I too, have prayed , now I have to believe that God has a plan even though I may not agree, He will work all things out for the best. You are a child of the King and He knows those things that causes you to be discouraged. Best of all He cares!
