Brain Overload

Today I spent the afternoon at the lawyers office drawing up my will.  Not because of lack of faith or because I think anything is going to happen to me, but because as a responsible adult/parent it is what I needed to do to make sure everything is in place.

Because quite honestly, anything could happen to any one of us at any time and I do not want to leave a mess for anyone and I want to make sure my children are taken care of.

Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. James 4:14

So while I am glad that I have that done, I have to tell you it is a bit daunting to try and tie up your whole life in a pretty little package.

I walked around the rest of the day with such an eternal outlook.  It made my head hurt and my heart grieve for how we live.  So much stuff, so much to think about...I really wish it was much simpler than this.

I made the mistake of going to Wal Mart afterwards and was literally attacked by chocolate bunnies and marshmallow peeps, I wanted to cry. 

Jesus forgive us.

After the past seven weeks of doctors and hospitals and medical lingo, now to add all the legal mumbo jumbo to it, my brain is on overload.

Tomorrow I am not going to think about this at all.  Tomorrow I am going to take a break from all of this and practice Philippians 4.

whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.  Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.  Philippians 4:8-9

I need that peace because the day after that, I have to tackle the insurance.


  1. Praying that you will find much rest tomorrow. I will pray for you throughout the day too.
