Busy Bees

I feel like the word Busy is so redundant in this stage of my life.  I am always busy, I have a lot on my plate.  I am wrapping up my second block of classes, trying to get caught up on homeschool stuff with Jackson, getting ready to be out of town for 2 weeks, and finally trying to finish Christmas shopping and all that goes with that.  We did finish the kids Christmas but I still have to get stocking stuffers and gift exchange stuff for the Cardiff Christmas and a gift for Kenneth.  Oh, and I have no wrapping paper so I will be adventuring out to walmart today and then heading over to the post office to mail Paisley her gift.  So yes my life right now in this moment is redundant! 
It is ok because there may come a day when I have nothing to do and I might even feel a little useless.  I will say though that I learned something this past weekend at Deeper Still.  I learned about resting in the Lord.  Rest is the activity of faith.  If we have faith we can truly rest.  I can't say that I am worried about anything right now or even that I am stressed.  I am going with the flow.  I just know that right now in my life God is taking care of it all.  I just found out that the van will not make it much more, we need that second car.  But I am resting in the faith that God will provide something else when we need it.

You're a great mom, wife, sister and friend!
