Be Anxious...

for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. - Philippians 4:6

I've been cooped inside too long, I'm afraid, and had too much time on my hands to think... bad, negative, fretful thoughts. About how I don't want to be here, I'd rather be there (#7), or anywhere else that involves missions.  How I don't want to raise my kids in the States to grow up to be self-absorbed people our society has such a tendency to make. Then I talked to my momma and a breath of fresh air blew in. She told me to stop being anxious and as soon as I heard it, I heard this verse in my head and knew what I needed to do: Pray... which is exactly what she told me to do next. So glad for a momma with the right words of encouragement--a momma who listens to the Lord.

So, I'll pray.  And organize my kitchen shelves a bit.  (It's been driving me crazy.) Maybe this will help a bit.

I tore the covers off all my books, trashed or put away for garage sale day the ones I don't need/want/use.

Put my onions and papas in the egg basket that I found at the flea market last month ($15!- I'll show you more finds on Friday) and organized according to color.

I also made this holder to put some of my cooking magazines in.  (More on that tomorrow.)

Back to praying... can I pray for you too? What are you anxious about right now?

Hmmm. Your baby must let you put him down occasionally, if you can organize kitchen shelves! On the plus side, lugging Jonathan around is making me rather buff.
