the past week i've been overwhelmed. i've been asked to serve at church in a way that i don't feel prepared to do. so i've let my emotions get the better of me and questioned my abilities a lot. and i've whined a lot to anyone who would listen. and i've gotten some really sage advice. God puts us in the place we need to be. He wants us to grow and become more like Him, and so He puts us in places that will make us grow. I need to stop worrying and start praying for peace and help. so i will. i'd started this layout over a month ago. it was for the journaling challenge that never got posted, so we decided to wait until the next time around and use the layouts we'd already done. so this had sat in my unfinished pile, i just needed to finish the last sentence of the journaling, proofread it, and then add the brads, paint the chipboard, and attach everything permanently. rereading through the journaling and thinking on all the conversations i'd had with friends and family over the weekend really made this life lesson sink in. i am blessed. it's ok that i don't feel up to the task, i'll do the best that i can do because God knows i can do it. so i think i can move on now. i'm sure there will be moments, but i think the pity party is over. thanks for listening.
if you're curious, i'm now the 1st counselor in relief society. it's the women's organization in my church and i'm over education. i'm leaving the children's organization where i taught music. it's a big switch.
