Thirteen Things I'm Feeling/Thinking These Days...

So this has been a pretty earth-shaking week for me (which explains the lack of posts) here's what I'm feeling/thinking about it all..

1. I'm feeling relieved.

2. I feel some peace.

3. I was brave.

4. But yet I still have moments of nervousness and also moments of anxiousness about what's next.

5. But even so, it's better than what I felt last week and there is a peace.

6. I feel God and certainly by my husband and various family and friends.

7. I have a soft place to fall.

8. I feel affirmed by my husband, inlaws and several friends who I've shared with...and by unexpected sources too... (And for the first time in my life, I think, I heard my mom say they would pray for me.)

9. I have value.

10. I don't want to wait for what's next...somehow I want to know what they next thing is and have that security, but I have to wait and see (all the while, I'm working on it too, you know.)

11. I'm reminded of my post a few weeks back (June 4, 2006) about fluffed up dead rabbits and taking risks...

It sounds like a fluffed-up dead rabbit to me. All over North America people remain in jobs they hate so they can buy stuff they don’t need to impress people who don’t care.
God created you for so much more than that. Could it be time for you to take a deep breath and really live again? Take some risks. God's plan for your life was never about being propped up in a cage.

12. I've been meditating on the words to this song this morning...the words bring tears and hope.

13. I'm going to be ok (I think) ...the feelings aren't as certain yet...there is a peace amid the anxiousness though.

Please keep me in your prayers:)

Oh wow, I LOVE the fluffed up rabbit comment - so, SO true.

Sounds like things are rough for you right now, take care and stay strong. *smile*

It sounds like you are going through a tough time. I'm glad you have such a strong support system.

Thanks for coming by my TT. Best wishes to you!

I'm glad you're feeling at peace through it. Just hang in there and keeping you in my thoughts and prayers.

Thanks for the visit. Have a wonderful day...

Great Day said...

#11 - really hit me hard. I'm in the process of finding a new job right now and it has been so scary.

It's been a big risk, but I know it will be for the best.

May that peace you speak of in #13 be with you throughout this trying time!

Stacie said...

Good luck! I am glad you are feeling peace.
I played too.

Christina said...

I'm glad that you feel some peace (and that you feel loved - so valuable!) and happy that you were able to be courageous in the past week. I will definitely say a prayer for you.

And wow on #11! That is so true. My husband recently gave up his "cage" job to follow a dream job and I'm so happy that he's doing it.

Would you consider coming out west to Alberta ?


Sherri said...

J - the answer to that question is a bit more complicated than can fit on I know you?

Christy said...

Sherri - I'll pray for you and Les and Amanda. May God feel near.
