When My Body Says "ENOUGH"

Me and Rainy's "friends"

At the beginning of every year Josh and I sit down and try to write down our goals that we have been praying through and we re-evaluate our mission and vision for our ministry.  This year we had quite the list.  I NEVER IN A MILLION YEARS thought we'd get around to it all.  Yes, I doubted!  I doubted that we'd have the finances, resources or the opportunities to accomplish all that we thought God was leading us to do.  Was I ever wrong!!  We accomplished every single thing that was on our list ... and then some!  That's what I get for doubting God=)  He is SO faithful.

I just want to take a second to thank all of you who help support us so we can continue to do what we do!  This is not our ministry, but God's.  We truly believe God has given us a calling and a responsibility and we are trying to be faithful.  

All this said, after being on the road every weekend (plus some) in October, followed by nightly rehearsals for the Live recording the next weekend ... my body told me, "ENOUGH".  I am so glad we have this weekend FREE because all day yesterday I felt like I was coming down with the flu or something.  I was so weak and shaky, had an upset stomach and couldn't keep my eyes open for the life of me.  The kids were really sweet, coming up to me and saying "Aww, sorry mommy", and "Here are my friends, they will make your tummy not hurt", and "I love you, mommy!"  Today I feel much better, it's just that initial let-down that is killer!

I love our job, I love my family, I love my kids, and I love that God made our bodies to tell us when we need a break...

Here's to laying around JUST ONE MORE DAY in my jammies=)
