The Day After your Birthday

OK so today is the day after my Birthday. I did not wake up to a bunch of singing family members or presents today, like I did yesterday. Today I woke up to a busy schedule, 3 loads of laundry, barking dogs wanting to be walked and 3 grumpy men (my 2 sons and husband). Welcome to the day after my birthday. The day where I started back at work. Sat in a uncomfortable chair for 3 hours during a welcome back to school workshop. Shuffled the kids and dog around all day so that I could sit in that uncomfortable chair at the welcome back meeting. And then, rushed to get home to finish up the laundry I started at 5 am. Ugh! My life can be hectic. Especially now that I am back to work. But, I can honestly say that I am thankful to God for the hectic life that He has blessed me with. There are some people who are not returning to work this year because of all the budget cuts in New York State to School districts. Thank God, I got to back to work today. There are some people who have been out of work for several months and can no longer receive unemployment. I am thankful today that I have a job and can pay my bills. Even though I am only a 10 month a year employee and have to budget over the summer months when I do not get paid, I still have 10 months of a steady income. I am so grateful to God for that. Yes, my life can be a little hectic, but I have peace even when things get a little crazy. I have joy even though I do have everything I want due to being on a budget. Because I know that with God I have everything I need. He fills me completely, till I overflow and He is more than enough for me. So yes, I am back to my everyday humdrum life that sometimes can be a grind. But, I wouldn't trade my life for anything. I am so thankful that God gave me all that I have. The cup I once saw as empty, I now see as overflowing. All because of His great love and amazing grace.

"...and the grace of our Lord overflowed for me with the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus." I Timothy 1:14

Beautiful! Isn't God just ... aweinspiring?! I can sit and just watch the clouds forever knowing He orchestrated them so perfectly. Welcome back to school! This is the second week back for us, and things are starting to find a good groove! I pray it comes your way soon!
