Welcome to Crazy Land

I'm feeling a wee bit crazy these days. Life has picked up in swirling gusts of insanity that have me wanting to run and yell "duck and cover"!!!

Like some may think after seeing this picture.

Don't send me any nasty notes about this. I take gun laws, safety, and concerns very seriously. Don't worry, I was safe. And in the middle of nowhere with my dad and brother standing off to the side/behind me. It's fun and a good stress reliever. And something my dad, brother, and I can all do together.

It's hard right now to find the right level of having more energy and overdoing it. It's hard to know when I've passed my Fibro wall and maxed out. It's hard to know when I've surpassed my ability to be joyful and I turn--like one of my favorite shirts I wear around the house says--"always grumpy". I don't want to be that way, but if I'm not careful {and I think we can all get like this} I can fall off a cliff in a hurry.

But alas, at the end of the day, I am content. I am filled with joy. My heart is happy.

Isaiah 43:2 and Daniel 2:20-21 are my constant sources of comfort these days. When the load is too heavy and too much, Christ offers us a place of refuge and helps us carry the load. We have to let him.

Like my brother had us say at church {he's an incredible pastor of a small congregation in my hometown}:  

God is good all the time. All the time God is good.

You are so awesome out there shooting! My ex taught my son and I think it's so cool. Good idea to have the ear protection on too. Man, it's loud!

I don't think I have ever shot a gun, which is weird because my brothers and dad all hunt etc. Thanks for the reminder that at the end of the day we can be content and joyful:) Sometimes, that is easy to forget and I find that I constantly have to work on it!
