information overload

this is my new notepad. 
i think it sums up my life right now pretty well.
SO MUCH TO DO.
which, for a planner and worrier like myself, just turns into 
SO MUCH WORRY

and not near enough trust.

I have a new print in my office from naptime diaries, and the truth in it is calming to my spirit.



"For this commandment that I command you today is not too hard for you, neither is it too far off"
There are lots of choices the hubs and I will be making in the near-near distant future
further schooling
jobs
cities to reside in

and it all gets so overwhelming.
but it's not mine to worry about.

for today, I am just focusing on that commandment.
when the worry finds itself seeping back in
I'm turning it over to the Lord
time and time again

Sidebar:  I may have worn my hair the same as yesterday just so I would have time to finish this necklace this morning.  just maybe.
go get yourself one.

  1. I completely understand where you're coming from! I'm a list maker & a worrier but I've done so well recently with the letting things go & just trusting God's plan for us. It's been soooo nice!!! We too have some possible changes coming our way.

  2. i can relate...many changes in our near future and i'm being reminded that i need to take my worries before the Lord moment by moment.

  4. love that to do list, even though that means there is probably too much to do! and your necklace is just beautiful! that quote is just great -- the Lord never gives us more to do than we can handle (just sometimes His view of what we can handle is more that what we think we can!)

  5. Hi Lauren! That looks like a notepad I would own! I am constantly making "To Do" lists-categorizing them even. And, I too end up just worrying & worrying. I have to stop myself and give my anxieties to the Lord, let Him "take the wheel" & know that He does not want me to worry about tomorow. Thanks for writing this!
    Good job on the necklace! :)

    Also, I think you should put some of those cute rosettes onto a t-shirt
