What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

September

Every winter I begin to wonder if perhaps my basket collection is becoming a bit excessive and wonder if I ought to pare down.


Then, September comes.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Feeling just a tad *or maybe not JUST a tad* bit overwhelmed these days.

Sadly, when I get to feeling this way, I begin treading water; accomplishing seemingly nothing and all those non-accomplishments add up to make me feel more overwhelmed.

A vicious cycle, I tell you.

The house is completely trashed from hasty birthday preparations and yard sale preparations that never panned out, thanks to buckets from heaven.

The laundry is mountainous thanks also, to buckets from heaven.

The school year has officially started but I am feeling less prepared than EVER thanks to a summer that disappeared before my very eyes.

Tomatoes are like dirty laundry these days...you get approximately 15 minutes of being caught up before more appear.

I have been intending to reopen my Etsy shop and set up a table at a craft show very soon in order to help more with finances but can't even seem to find the time to vacuum the throw rug in the living room or post those clothes on Craigslist.

Worst of all, the (very uncertain) future may make the next two or three months (or 6 or 12) the most insane months of my life. And the uncertainty of it all is driving me mad.

I wonder if the strength of it all is in me.

And then I read this, written just for me it seems:

God WILL give you more than you can handle

and

Our Priviledge on Earth

And I remember this:

"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."


And then I just step out, one step after another... in faith.
