Keep on keepin' on...

Well I am tired today! I didn't do a whole lot physically, but I got a lot of busy stuff done. I had a list of about 10 things to do, and I have 2 left on my list. And I will have those done shortly.

I got Madi in the pre-k program at Slaton. She will start tomorrow. I can't believe it. I tell you it pays to know people. I had been told by two school professionals that it was full, and she wouldn't be able to get in. I went and met with the principal today and he said she can start tomorrow. She is so excited. She has her clothes laid out, and she asked at 6:50 p.m. if she could go ahead and go to bed. Who am I to stand in the way of her dream of an early bedtime? So both kids are down, and ohhhh how I needed that.

It's also looking like I got a permanent sub position for the rest of the year at the high school. It's a pretty easy position. I don't actually have to teach anything. I'm taking over for a woman that was an aid. I should be able to start by Monday. I called the principal last night, and she has been the one who has done all this for me. I am very thankful that everything is working out.

And I'm pretty sure I am going to move to Slaton. I haven't signed a lease yet, but I hope to have that done this week. The church in Slaton has offered to move me. I am so grateful for them. That is where Nathan and I went to church, got married, etc...and they have always had a special place in my heart even though I started going to Monterey over a year ago.

And although all of this is working out, I'm just having a hard day. I can't really explain why. Sometimes you don't have to have a reason to be upset, you just are! Nathan's appraisal business moved offices today, and for some reason I am so upset about it. I really can't explain why. It just upsets me. I think a lot of it is because I really have to keep my focus on myself and God and not on what he is doing. Having the freedom to do whatever you want with whoever you want can look very appealing at times for a single mom who feels very confined to her life. And don't get me wrong I love my kids with all my heart, but I want to have fun too. It's just hard sometimes. And usually I am very good at realizing how lonely he really is. I've lived the party scene before and it's nothing to write home about, and it does nothing for you. I know satan wants me to think that his life is great, grand, and wonderful...but I just have to stay focused and know that satan is a master manipulator and will do whatever he has to, to make me feel down.

I'm also 29 weeks pregnant and full of crazy hormones...that may be part of my problem! :)

So I will go read the bible, pray, listen to some good whatever I have to do to get to where I need to be. Man what would I do without God??? I seriously don't see how people going through a divorce do this without God. I can't imagine, and I don't want to.

Wow, It's so great how things are falling into place for you. And it's okay to not have a great day even after all that...sometimes days are just not great. And you're right, I'm sure your pregnancy hormones aren't helping a bit! :)

I've said it before, and I'm going to say it again. I'm proud of you. Keep on keepin' on!

I am also thankful that things are falling into place in Slaton, and pray that doors will continue to open to make this smooth on your whole family. Your kids will be so much stronger and better off for being able to watch you walk through this while leaning on God and His guidance. I am thankful God is leading you through, and I wanted to leave this with you:

"For this reason, since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you and asking God to fill you with the knowledge of His will through all spiritual wisdom and understanding. And we pray this in order that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and may please Him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, being strengthened with all power according to His glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, and joyfully giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in the kingdom of light". ~Colossians 1:9-12

Love & blessings~

Sounds like you had a busy day just be sure you don’t overdo it. That is great you were able to get Madi in the pre-K program and great about your job too. I know when I went through my divorce, staying busy helped me a lot. What a blessing that your old church is going to move you, as I know that part will be a load off your mind.

You continue to amaze me with all that you have going on. I know God is going to do some wonderful things in your life.

Hey larissa,
I came by to say hello. Great post today. You have a lot on your plate. Divorce is so difficult, I cannot imagine doing it with little ones and pregnant. What I have learned over the past few months is one day at a time, and keep moving forward. I am proud of you and all you are accomplishing.
I have you in my prayers and will keep you there. I am happy that God is providing what you need and when you need it.
Isaiah 30:21
Whether I turn to the left or right, Father cause my ears to hear a voice behind me saying "This is the way, walk in it."
I am grateful God is leading you.
Have a great day.

I have been coming to your blog and reading some of your posts. I have to say that I envy you and your strength. Satan dropped a bomb on you and with God you are perservering! I admire single moms because I am one myself. I am going through a "divorce" right now too. Why did I put that word in " "'s you might ask.... Well, here in the grand state of South Carolina, common law marriages are recognized. So, even though I never tied the knot, spoke the vows, etc, I am getting acotton-pickin' divorce. Mommy of one trying to make it. It's hard. So from one single mom to another, we will overcome any obstacles set in our path because we have God on our side. Take care and bless you!
