      I have several.
      1) We have yet to get our taxes done. Can you say procrastinate? Several obstacles are preventing me from moving forward, but the bottom line is dread of pulling it all together. We have a home based business, a farm, and the sale of some property for 2007 that add up to a nigthmare in my book of documentation. I know that I should keep up with it on a monthly basis so it wouldn’t be overwhelming, but life gets in the way. :( Now it is crunch time. I only have 2 weeks! Please pray that I would carve out the time in my busy schedule, find all the receipts, and easily be able to reconstruct our spending/earnings from last year. I should flog myself for not doing it sooner, but we have had birth certificate issues with our last baby, and I have put it off until we got that straight - when I should have just filed, and the filed an ammendment. I know this will be a burden lifted once it is finished, but it doesn’t make it easier to face it.
      2)Our house is on the market, my husband leaves mid-Nov for Colorado, and the children (9 still at home) and I will stay in Georgia until the house sells. MY vision is for it to sell quickly. Single parenting is not the exercise I have in mind for strength building. :) I love my kids, but insanity is always hiding behind the door waiting to overcome me. My husband always rescues me; I don’t know how I’ll manage for any length of time without an escape valve. He frees me up to have some me time to be refreshed and rejuvenated. I think I might have to get a Susannah Wesley apron and tell the kids not to bother me when it is over my head. LOL I have also already found a property that I would love to have when we move out there, but the house will need LOTS of work. It should be instant equity when we remodel, but it isn’t even livable right now. I know that doesn’t sound realistic to want to buy it, but it was love at first sight (with the outdoor property and buildings.) It is surrounded by million dollar homes - 35 acres, a barn to house all our horses, and then some. An indoor riding area.... it is perfect! Except the house... So, please pray that God would give us clear direction regarding that too.

      I am so thankful that I found this group! There is so much warmth and love, and reading the prayers in other threads makes me feel... like I am in the presence of the Lord. I have never felt that before when I was sitting in front of my computer. Meditating and praying in my closet, or IRL with other believers, but never reading from the screen of my laptop. I really feel like we are ‘gathered in his name’ and He is here with us.

        • I give God the glory. I am just his vessel. Some days I feel like a broken worn out one. LOL I have SO much to be thankful for though. God has so blessed us. I am working on the positive self talk. Somehow in the biblebelt of the south that is associated with hokey-pokey. Even when the Bible says “as a man thinketh, so is he.” Duh - I am so thankful that God has opened my eyes to all the negative thoughts that were implanted in my brain as a child. I now ‘hear’ my mom speak for the first time. I have decided to use the sheild of faith to reflect all that negativity!

          Thanks for the prayers, and the encouragement.
