I have been a bit overwhelmed the past few weeks. I get silent instead of talking it out, which isn't healthy...I have learned that from experience. Not only do we have a wedding in our yard in a month, but in the midst of planning, my dear husband and I had a day away (sometime in May) and during our time together we talked of selling our home.
Yes, we have a wedding coming up, but we can work around that.
Never imagined life with two major events going on at the same time. On top of which my D.H. has been working out of town for 8 weeks, and Ethan will be a senior this year so we have to do the college visit thing...
Nor did I imagine that I would have a bad cold in the summer combined with poison ivy on most of one half of my face, and on a finger...But... THAT was my life the last week or more. The FOR SALE sign went up, I had all those things, and we are down to the 5 week mark for the wedding.
I am finding that even after all the careful planning in the beginning, there is so much more that I "shelfed" while working on the yard (is shelfed a word?)...This final phase is invitations, planning the order of the day, the service, getting final clothing things together...fittings, shopping, calling, decision making....music, photos, showers, etc. Then there is the layout of the reception, decorations finalized, rsvp's to collect and count, I wont tell you how many lists I have. Too many!
In the midst of it all, there is the place of quiet peace where I can go and "cast all my anxieties" remembering who owns the day...all the days...all my days... Why should I worry? Why should I fear (missing or forgetting something)? I have a God who "leads me with His right hand" and leads me where He wants me to be.
Ah, there is always that quiet place of rest.
Psalm 139:10 even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast.
