Hey friends ~

And how was your week??

Mine started off GREAT!

I spent Monday praying and preparing, excited for this fun “surprise project” I’m working on (I can’t wait until I can tell you about it!), and spent the afternoon praying for tons of friends & family near and far, feeling just overall blessed and grateful.

Then life hit.

Sick kids.

John out of town.

No sleep.

Another day of sick kids.

Girlfriends out of town.

More laundry. And school notes. Hockey details. The piles and clutter begin to take over.

Thankfully, my mom came to babysit Wednesday night so I could go to my Prayer Class (taught by my friend & mentor Mary Swierenga). I spilled my latte all over me and my Bible.

Yep, it’s been one of those weeks.

Today is Day #4 with someone home from school, and me stuck in the house. Again.


Thankfully John is back in town now (although he probably wishes he was still golfing in South Carolina. I just called him and had a melt down on the phone. Not my finest moment).

I’m done.

I think I’ll declare to Benj it’s “rest time” and I’ll go back to bed and start over.

And when I get up, I’ll focus on the 3 P’s ~ God’s power, His perspective, and Promises.

I desperately need a fresh filling of His resurrection POWER.

I long to see this week from His PERSPECTIVE.

I must cling to His PROMISES or I’ll melt down again (and it’s not pretty).

How do you recharge after long, exhausting, draining weeks? I’d love to hear from you!

Thanks for stopping by *She Sparkles*. I’m off to take a nap!

P.S. When I wake up, I might just re-watch this Beth Moore teaching again. It gets me fired up everytime. If you have a few minutes to check it out, you’ll be glad you did! 🙂
