Goals Update - Overwhelmed

These last few weeks have left me feeling overwhelmed.  Very overwhelmed.

This is a very busy season in our lives and this fall only promices to get busier. 

We are already planning for fall. 

John has a 30-hour per week internship this fall, the kids will be in first grade (registration has already passed for that!), I'll be certifying for my Jazzercise certificate and I'm hoping to be defending my dissertation some time in that mess too.  With John's busy work and school schedule it means my work schedule will have to change too.  

These are all good things - it means John's getting closer to graduation and ordination, the kids are progressing academically as they should, I'm meeting my exercise/fitness goals for the year, and my career as a perpetual student is almost over.  It means we'll be 'gaining' $12,000 a year from not having to pay my tuition anymore (and that money can go toward our goal of paying off our house!).  It means that at least in theory my schedule will be calming down somewhat.

I'm happy about all of that.

I means a lot of stress - emotional mostly - in the meantime. 

At the moment I don't see who is going to switch with me for my teaching schedule. 
At the moment I don't see how John is going to fit another 30 hours of 'stuff' into his current schedule.
At the moment I don't see how I'm going to finish everything I need to for my dissertation in the time I've allotted.
At the moment I don't see how I'm going to exercise enough to be where I want to be for my Jazzercise certification.
At the moment I don't see how we're going to be completely debt free by the time John is ordained.

At the same time, I've seen God working in amazing ways in our lives.

We currently have saved $140 from our envelopes toward our summer vacation without much effort on our part.
John has several options for his internship this fall - some of which actually might work for us.
I keep making progress on my dissertation.
I am ahead in my teaching responsibilities! (I've never been in that spot before and it feels wonderful!) 
I've had some extra time to spend with the kids the last couple weeks, which is heaps of fun.
I've had two great conversations with my MIL - something I rarely get to do.
I've had two great conversations with my parents, which I always enjoy.
I was able to get some very small projects done around the house.
John and I have had two really great at-home date nights this month.
We've seen and felt responses to our specific prayers that we have been praying since reading George Muller.
John and I are both ready to have the necessary conversations we need to have with our pastor about our congregation
We've been more mindful of several things we've been wanting to do with the kids and we've seen results.

Even though things have been rough emotionally for both of us (John ended up with intensinal problems one day from stress and I ended up with a migraine yesterday also from stress), we've managed to lean on God and stay mostly content.

I gave up keeping track of what I've done each week this last week - much of it is repetative and I seem to make little progress on certain things. All of that is frustrating me.  So I'm keeping it here this week.

How are you doing on your goals? I'd love to hear!

These are a Few of My Favorite Things - Church Family

With John being in Seminary and 'working' in 2 different churches, us attending a third and our children attending school at a 4th, I often feel like I'm playing musical churches.    Sometimes it's frustrating, running here and there, juggling 2-3 different schedules and churches on a Sunday.  We're also part of the Minnesota Via de Cristo community, which adds a 5th church community in there as well.

Even though it often feels like we're juggling things and it's a bit crazy, it means we have a HUGE church family.

Yes, a family.

A family made up of God's precious children of all shapes and sizes, colors and abilities. 

And it is a family.

We care for each other.

We argue with each other.

We lift each other up.

We get angry with each other.

We help each other out.

And we're always there for each other.

Doesn't that sound like a family?  I think so.

These last few months have been especially tough for me for some reason.  Part of it is that I've felt so disconnected from my church family - we're 'taking a break' from our activities and 'our' church to have some time to think and process and pray over what God whats us to do next in our lives with our faith life while we're waiting for John to finish Seminary and accept his (our) first call.  It is a lonely place to be.

Since John got called in this morning, I packed the kids off to one of his 'working' churches by myself, with a roaring headache, a bad stomach ache and my mind spinning with all the things that 'need' to get done today.  I sent the kids to Sunday School and went to the adult class myself - which was a nice place to be.  We headed off to worship and I ran into one of the few people I know more than just 'in passing' we chatted for a few minutes - she asked where John was, and how the kids were enjoying Sunday school, small talk stuff.  I mentioned that our schedules were crazy and it was a bit hard right now.

Then she stopped, looked straight at me, and said "Do you need a hug?"

The dam broke, tears flowed, "Yes."  I sobbed.

A hug, a pat, a smile, a kind word.  And the knowledge that I had a family to go to if I needed it.

In our busy world, we tend to shut ourselves off from family - be they biological, chosen or faith.  We carry our burdens ourselves and wonder why we're burnt out, lonely, scared and hungry for love.  We feel overwhelmed and overburdened.

Being able to open my heart and mind to my faith family and help them carry our burdens with us is just what my soul needs in this season of life.

Even if it is a simple hug on a snowy, busy morning.

Truly, my church family - all 5 branches of it! - is one of my favorite things.

These are a Few of My Favorite Things - Simple and Little

One of the greatest joys I have in life as the simple and  little things.  Things such as...

* my son's laugh
* my daughter's pig tails
* my husband's hand holding mine
* my lovely flowers in the spring and summer
* hot spiced cider in the fall
* hot and fresh coffee
* good conversation with a friend
* a date night game with my husband and lots of laughs
* a first thing in the morning cuddle with one of my children
* homemade Valentine's cards
* homemade Valentine's treats
* a tidy living room
* a cleaned-up kitchen
* my daughter's face deep in concentration on a project
* an imaginary light sabre fight with my son
* good hot cocoa mix from a friend
* a glorious sunrise (or sunset)
* soft grass on my bare feet
* a good book
* good music
* wholesome, fresh food
* freshly pressed school uniforms
* clean sheets on the beds
* time to sew
* thumb-print pictures made by my kids
* flying high on a swing
* playing tag or ring around the rosey or London bridge
* my children being so excited about school that they can't wait to tell us all about it each day
* my students' faces lighting up as they understand a difficult concept
* completed grading
* a new and interesting research article
* friendly work colleagues
* helpful conversations at work
* time to worship the Lord
* a community of believers to worship with
* the ability and desire to sing
* fellow Believers who question and struggle and uplift and affirm
* communion with the Lord
* the knowledge that I have salvation through my faith in Christ.

All of these things taken one at a time are not much.

Put them together and they are the meaning of life - the little things that make a house a home, a job a vocation, a church a community, and a religion a faith.

Truly they are some of my favorite things.

Super Savings Saturday - 4 pair pants, 2 jackets, 1 blouse, 2 suits plus Jewelry for $65!

So, I am officially in love with Clothes Mentor!  I love, love, love that store!  They recently opened on in a neighboring suburb and after reading rave reviews on several other blogs, I decided to give it a shot!  My first time there I bought 1 pair of slacks, 1 skirt, 3 sweater sets, and a cashmere sweater for $100.  I thought that was pretty good.

Today's "haul" took the cake!  And I'm lovin' it!  I had $60 total to spend, I needed some things for myself and I wanted to stop at another shop and get some things for the kids too.

Today was the last day of the $2 clearance sale.  I only looked at the $2 racks, until it came to the jewelry.  Here's what I got:

(Pardon the crummy pictures.  I have a very mediocre camera and very average lighting!)

These lovely brown gauchos (is that what they're called?).  Cost: $2

These lovely black pin-stripe pants.  Cost: $2

This lovely pair of wide-leg jeans (sorry folks, I don't 'do' the skinny jeans!). Cost: $2

This Coldwater Creek blouse.  I just love the cut and fit of this!  Cost: $2

This lovely wool flannel suit!  I need to hem the skirt up about an inch and a half but the jacket fits like it was tailored for me!  Cost: $2

This lovely broach. Cost: $6

This lovely earring and necklace set (and in real life the earrings are both the same color!). Cost: $9

Total Cost: $27.07 with tax for the jewelry.


I also went to Once Upon a Child for a couple of things for the kids.  I went in looking for an Easter outfit and a spring coat for Buddy.  Here's what I found:
This lovely 3-piece "suit" for Buddy.  Pants, vest and shirt.  $11

Nike windbreaker:  $4.95

Lovely dress coat for Missy: $14

Pair of straight leg knit pants for Buddy for dance class.  $4  (Sorry no pic of these - they're in the wash!)

Total Spent:  $36 with tax for the suit and dress coat. 

I am very happy with what I bought today!  And I'm even happier that John is the only one right now who does not have Easter clothes.  And I have an almost completed new work wardrobe for less than $200!

In the Refiner's Fire - Lessons from George Muller

A few weeks ago I bought the Autobiography of George Muller and read it cover to cover in one sitting!  Yes, it really was that engrossing.  And I was absolutely enthralled.

I had first heard of George Muller when I first stumbled across Crystal's blog a few years ago. Her old blog, that is - the one before this one!  Then it suddenly kept popping up all over the place!  First on another web site I had stumbled upon, then a friend mentioned it, then a co-worker, then in a sermon at church, then a friend, and...  well, you get the picture. 

Hmmm, maybe this is something I should look into! 

I have had it on my "To Read" list for quite some time but since our local library didn't carry it and I am trying very hard not to buy any more books until I finish reading the shelves (literally) full of unread books that live in our house, I hadn't read it. 

Once I started reading I really couldn't put it down. 

I learned some very valuable things reading this book.  Some of them I 'knew' in my head but God used this book to put them on my heart as well. 

* God is never late, even if we think He is!
* Prayer can be very specific.
* God provides everything we need - not necessarily what we want.
* We have to listen to God - for His prompting, His voice and His desires, not our own. (John likes to say "It's hard to hear the Spirit when we're telling Him what to do!")

And the biggest thing I learned was this:

God accomplishes enormous things.  Sometimes by very small means over a long period of time. We just have to let Him do the work through us.

This book made such an impression on me, that I had John read it.

And we made a list of things we wanted to pray for and listen for.  They are very private things, things that have been on our hearts for so long now.  I may share some of them as/if they come to fruition.  And some are too personal to share.

One thing that is easily shared is how much more content I have become since reading this book.

I am content to live within my means
I am content to use up, reuse, make do or do without, as the saying goes.
I am content with my crazy-busy schedule - and have been far more productive than I ever thought imaginable
I am praying more often, about more things.
I am eager to sit down with John and prayer about our list.
I am content to sit and listen for God and His guidance in our lives.

I am absolutely convinced that trusting God is what places contentment in my heart.  Being so inspired has led me to believe that I really do have the capability to trust God the way He wants me to.  To put Him first in my heart. And to let Him be the guide of my course and the supplier of my provision.

If you haven't read the Autobiography of George Muller, I highly suggest you do. 

It is inspiring.
It is humbling.

And it is such a blessing.

Soli deo gloria.
Always.
Amen.

Disclosure:  I purchased this book with my own money through a seller of my own choosing.  I have not in any way been compensated monetarily or given goods to write a review of any kind of this book, favorable or not.  These opinions expressed here are my own and belong to no one else.

Goals Update - Week of January 30th, 2011 Review

Is is just me or is this year flying by?  I feel like I'm hearing a "Whoosh" as the days fly past.  *SIGH*

I guess that just means I have to pay more attention as things happen!

Things that were completed this last week include:
* Doing a quick tidy on the living room and our bedroom
* Cleaning out the kids drawers
* Getting caught up on the ironing
* Deep cleaning the bathrooms (they desperately needed it!)
* Staying caught up - and actually getting ahead! - with my teaching work
* Working out 3x this last week
* Going through 2 more transcripts (almost done with those!)
* Finishing another paper
* Starting a research proposal
* Establishing a professional contact that might be very important in the near future
* Ordering some supplies which will enable me to finally cross off some of my scrapbook projects from my to-do list
* Going on a very nice date with John (and managed to find a babysitter at the last minute)
* Making Valentine's Day presents for John and the kids (I'll post about them on Wednesday!)
* Having two very deep discussions about our faith and the future with John
* Cleaning out the refrigerator (Note to self: Do that more often! Yikes!)
* Finished reading one of the books on my "for fun" reading list for this year
* And probably at few other things I'm forgetting!

I still haven't gotten our new curtain rods hung - it takes two people and John and I haven't been available at the same time yet.  Hopefully this weekend.  I also feel like I'm way behind on my projects around the house and with my dissertation work. I do feel like I'm making progress and that's always a good thing! 

How are you doing on your goals? Care to share? I'd love to hear!

Healthy Habits in 2011 - Exciting Stuff!

I'm really excited with what I've been doing on this area.  Even with being sick and having a house full of sickies for the last two weeks,  I've made progress. 

I found and calibrated that darn pedometer.  Progress.
I keep forgetting to wear said pedometer.  (No, that's not progress!)

I've been doing much better with snacking. Progress.
It's really hard to snack when you're doing things that require your hands and when I have to tell my accountability partner what I've eaten it tends to cut down on mindless eating.  Crackers are still a weakness - especially right before bed (a habit I started when I was pregnant how many years ago now!) - but I have managed to cut down to a few oyster crackers from a whole bowl of saltines.  I don't need the salt  and I don't need the calories!


The biggest thing - and the most exciting - is that I took that first step to being a Jazzercise instructor!

I had an impromptu opportunity this week to do a movement screening.  I decided that if I could pass the movement screening with a roaring head cold, 3 1/2 hours of sleep and shoes that left my feet screaming I would be okay.

I found out Monday that I passed! 

WHOO HOO! 

I might not be thin, but at least I have good form! :)

I'm excited about that.

I also have some new goals for myself for while I'm working out:

1. Don't slouch when doing floor work - I tend to let my posture go when I'm on the floor doing leg and ab work (leg work especially) which is bad for my back and doesn't work the muscles correctly.

2. Return all the way to my heel when doing moves where I land on my toe (i.e. knee lifts, etc.).  Every single one of us at the screening had this problem according to the screen-er and it can cost us 1/2 beat in rhythm which means we can get off and get lost during a routine.  Don't want that.

3. Really push myself hard when I work out.  My legs are SCREAMING from my last work out because of this.  that is a good thing!

Nothing like a little incentive like someone waiting on you to get certified as an instructor for motivation! 

I also have a goal of working out 4x per week in February (barring acts of God). If I make that goal, I get to order myself another cute Jazzercise top.

How are you doing with your healthy habits goals this week?  Care to share?

Prayer Request Update

A huge THANK YOU for all your prayers.

My parents are now on their way back to the US - evacuated to Greece and now on their way home.  We're just hoping they don't get stuck someplace here in the US with all the storm activity running around.

As my Dad said, "This trip turned into quite the adventure!" 

It's a huge relief.

And we are go grateful!

Thanks again for your prayers.  We so appreciate it!

Soli Deo Gloria.  Amen.

Goals Update - Week of January 23, 2011 Review

With how our weekend went, last week seems like it was a LONG time ago.  I feel like I've lived three lives (at least!) since last week.

What did I accomplish last week?
* Finalized everything I needed for classes this week.
* Slept a LOT (to get rid of a bad head cold)
* Attended 2 meetings
* Cleaned out another bookcase - of work/school stuff this time! I think that stuff multiplies on it's own.
* Filled out enrollment forms for my kids for school for next year
* Worked out twice
* Did a movement screening for becoming a Jazzercise instructor (more on that later!)
* Read a whole entire book - for pleasure!
* Deep cleaned my bathroom
* Found Buddy's glasses - he had lost them for about a week

I figured that was pretty good for having a terrible head cold, John having a sinus infection and the kids still getting over their head colds! 

I also realized this last month that I had expectations that were more than just a bit too high as to what I could get done in a day.  I've streamlined my goals for February to make them fit better with my daily schedules.  I've been trying that out this week so far and I've seen a lot of progress!  I have actually been able to knock a couple of partial-projects off the to-do roster and I've caught up a couple of household chores that I had been behind on.  I'm actually a bit ahead on my teaching/class stuff, which is also good - and so helpful when life erupts into chaos.

God willing, I'll be accomplishing more and be less rushed over the next few months.  I'll be sure to keep you posted! 

How did you do this week?  I'd love to hear!

Menu Plan Monday (on a Tuesday) - Week of January 30th, 2011

I'm a bit grateful that the pantry challenge is over, since we were out of several things - mostly by my own poor planning.  Fortunately nothing earth-shattering food-wise other than fruit, which we run out of regularly anyway.  Kleenex and feminine products were the problem as was shampoo - though I managed to make it through without buying shampoo until after the pantry challenge was over!  We can make do without crackers but we really like to have them on hand - yes, we're a wee bit spoiled like that! :)

That said, we still have  A LOT in the freezer and pantry - especially frozen veggies and things like rice, beans and pasta.  So we'll work on using those this month.  I'm also slowly working toward more of a true "stockpile" of 3-6 months of food.  We have several holes plus fruit and milk.  I don't plan on filling in the fruit and milk that much since fresh fruit and milk to drink are important to us.  The other holes are more important. And I'll share about those over the next few weeks in the Super Savings Saturday Posts.

Here's what we're eating this week:
