bizarre and crazy life.....

another week has zoomed. that brings me closer to the whole.... time to be packed and moved and have that new job all sorted, and right now, I just feel so overwhelmed by everything.

I've had 4 rejection letters this week. Count them.... 4!

That's ok. None of them were the perfect job, or where God wanted me to be.... right?!

I've had all sorts of chaos with work, which is more than welcome in some respects. I like chaos. It keeps me on my toes, but it's just all come at the wrong moment. hehehe.

I sat down when I received a package today of samples to replace what had been taken from the car - and ended up pulling out something that I hadn't asked for, which was supposed to be something specifically for a customer next week, and all I could do was sit and cry. I had tried to be organised, I had tried to do everything the "right" way, and that didn't even work.

Anyway... I'm heading out to dinner with some friends, which will be lots of fun. And then, over the weekend - more catching up to do, and I'm so looking forward to doing some baking too. :)

Might even get some time to sit and play around on here. I still haven't got those pics uploaded.

Bare with me.... please.

I'm afraid right now, I feel like that man, so it's really a reminder to myself.

Four was the number of letters I counted as well and I'm guessing that they weren't perfect or where God wanted you to be. Rest and recreation sounds like what you need, along with a good long chat with the higher Power. ec

Mr Eddie ~

You are so right... I've been trying to do all of this in my own strength. I don't know if it's pride, or me just being my busy self. Probably both.
Either way time to start seeking Him in all of this.

Hiya CJ, I finally made it over to catch-up here! I did go back n read thru ALL I missed. Some perfectly great shots up here, I hope you do more soon to get them displayed, published, n sold!

I realize ya seem to have lots on the back-burner waiting, as the pic says it here, so many pots n pans to heat up!

Also sounds like you're working so hard (what took me so long to catch up- needed the 3-day week-end, not enough time for all). Hope your boss truelly appreciates all you've done for them there!

Best of luck with a new job, n moving, n perhaps driving a bit less- I'll say a few prayers for you.
Sorry I haven't commented in so long, But I'm all caught up now-

David ~
It has indeed been a long time. Glad that you are finally getting that summer weather. Dark and dreary days here... but I'm enjoying them.

Snaggle ~ I feel like I need a month to catch up. I can't see my desk for paper! And I so miss just having the time to sit and read through people's lives. So I'm sorry I don't get over there often. New season just around the corner!
Thanks for the prayers! Shooting some over your way too.
