lately I’ve been overwhelmed
overwhelmed by news of yet another mass shooting
overwhelmed by total depravity
and it’s manifestation in the stories I hear everyday
overwhelmed by just stuff, we all have stuff

I’ve bowed out of an urban ministry, a fabulous urban ministry
I’ve bowed out of small group because I just can’t
see my own kids less than I do now
I’ve taken a personal day to do laundry, clean, and grocery shop
it’s just life and at times it’s hard….for everybody

I’ve been searching for a replacement door for the mudroom/ craft area for a while now. I even found one at a habitat re-store that I conned the hubs into installing…. only it was 2 inches too short.

Retail would be special order $$$ since our home was built in the fabulous 80s….
