Happy Tuesday :)

Because Brian will hopefully get a little bit of today off from work! So, we are counting down the days until the "window" of his departure. I spent a good bit of yesterday just wasting my time pouting, I guess about the fact that they scheduled him for duty (24 hours) after having to work Sat...to get it (the duty) in before he left....though the rest of the service had yesterday off. So yeah, my attitude stunk and I am paying for it today as my house needs some REAL TLC ...as do my kids after my neglect yesterday. I don't know how the Lord puts up with me sometimes. Even yesterday, I resisted His loving Spirit coaxing me to stick to my routine...I'd get up, get started and then just putter out. I must say too, that this is very unusual for me-to not go insane in a cluttered mess of a house-today, it's driving me insane.

Have you ever had a day where you just physically did not feel like doing a thing? And, I'm not talking about due to sickness, or a new baby..you know, reasonable causes, I'm talking about giving in to well, I guess a sinful attitude of pouting? Ouch, kinda hurts when I put it that way. Well, anyway, it was awful, and I feel so guilty about the precious day I wasted. I will *never* do that again. But today is a happy Tuesday, I am shaking off the dust of yesterday and moving on...:) God is so good to me, even when I am rotten :(

Your Grateful Husband,

awwe Heather...what a touching..HONEST...post. We all have those days so don't feel alone. I too feel so guilty when a day has gone by wasted. These are times however that awaken our need for each days importance.

This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118:24

Now..you can be thankful that your tender spirit saw the "attitude" of the day..and you can prevail against it next time!!

HAPPY WEDNESDAY!! and BTW..have you been to my..this is the day blog! hope you leave with a SMILE for THAT day!

I love Brian's comment....how sweet!

Yes, Heather, I have totally been there...more times than I care to admit. At least you have some good motivation to get it all caught up early today! Have fun with your hubby home early.

Hey Heather,
Sometimes I think we need those kind of days, It seems to give us a special boost and then we can get more done the next day! I am thankful that God is Patient with us, isn't He so Wonderful!
I enjoy popping over to your blog when I get a chance, Have a great Day, Love,

Heather, I live there most of the time. I know just how you feel. I'm glad you're able to shake it off and move on. Some times it's ok to take a down day and just deal with it. It's only when it becomes the norm that we get in to trouble.

Uh-huh. Affirmative on that, Heather. :(

Leah said...

Been there too! The mess does drive me insane. I pray you have a wonderful day today. I hope the Lord reveals himself in little ways today. P.S. What a sweet husband you have.

Have I ever had a day like that?...ahemmmm.....YES....way to many of them..I am a slow learner...
but life..it is a process....and Romans 8:28 tells me that ALL things work together for the good.......etc....so I guess this would include all of our POUTY...feel sorry...pity party days too....

BTW..I too have added you to my blogroll.

Oh Heather, I have so MANY days like that! You are just fine. Things are stressful and you overloaded! God is NOT going to hold it against you.

I think its admirable that after only one day like that you kicked yourself in the behind and got back to it. So many times its so easy to let one day snowball into many...been there!

Hope you're feeling great today!! :)

kammie said...

Heather, I have alot of those days. I've been there so many times, it is too overwhelming (and embarrassing) to admit exactly how many!

((((HUGS)))) We will get through these days, only when we relie on the Lord's strength to carry us.

*As I am in the midst of one of those days right now, I will get in my prayer closet and get in gear! (((HUGS)))

Several of those days have been attacking me at once here lately.
=(

Mishel said...

Umm, yeah. I had one of those days just yesterday. : ( Praying for you dear friend...and I loved Brian's comment. What a guy!

Sileena said...

People write such sweet things to you cuz I was sitting here thinking...yeah, I have those days to and I just call em "me being lazy" and I apologize profusely to my husband for being a sloth and then to the Lord for not being a better steward of what He's given me and I TOTALLY pay for it the next day when I repent and clean like a crazy woman. Of course I regret and despise my laziness for like a month!
Now, about the visit to our church Au Natural...I think you should seriously consider this one cuz people here are the furthest thing from that!! That's all the warning I have for you of course don't let that keep you from visiting though. I would *love* to see you!
Oh and Brian's comment: precious!Is this too long to be a "comment"?

Heather said...

Thank you all for your encouraging comments! :) Tuesday, was better, had challenges all its own and now I see that I was getting sick :( Amazing how when I get sick, my body shuts down before I feel the symptoms. Now, though I feel the symptoms, I strangely (thank you God) have the energy and desire to keep up with the house. Thank you for your support!
