Philippians 3:12-14 (The Message Bible)

I'm not saying that I have this all together, that I have it made. But I am well on my way, reaching out for Christ, who has so wondrously reached out for me. Friends, don't get me wrong: By no means do I count myself an expert in all of this, but I've got my eye on the goal, where God is beckoning us onward—to Jesus. I'm off and running, and I'm not turning back.

Hanging by a thread...

I promise, I haven't dropped off the face of the earth. As a matter of fact, it's more like quite the opposite. I feel like I'm EVERYWHERE all the time! My calandar is insane this month. I know I say that a lot...but really...this month takes the cake. Besides all my activities going on...I am spreading my wings with this whole fitness/coaching thing and I just feel like a car sitting at an intersection with 5 main highways trying to figure out which road to go down...
When I have a second to I spend it with the kids? Do I work on my BB coaching? Do I work on my vacation bible school stuff for church? Do I chill out with hubby on the couch for some down time? Do I fit in yet another work out? Do I do some much-needed housework and laundry? Do I sit down for a second and catch up on blogs? Do I write out the next routine for my classes with my buddies? Aughhhh!!!!
Anyway...I am doing some serious soul-searching and God-seeking. I need some direction with all this. I can't possibly be the best at everything. Something is going to suffer. I refuse to let that be my husband and kids or my relationship with God. Those are top priority.
I don't have much time right now, but I at least wanted to jot a little note to all of you, my wonderful, encouraging followers and let you know that I am still alive, though gasping for air, and I will be back to the blogging world just as soon as I can.
Matt and I are still doing P90X faithfully and amazing ourselves at our accomplishments when we really push hard. He's lifting 35's now with a lot of the exercises wheras last round..he only did 25's. And, I did my first full-fledged pull up yesterday starting with straight arms hanging! Glory to God!
I really appreciate all of you who are always here for me. Just knowing that you are reading and hearing me....that totally makes me feel understood and heard...and as women, we need that! Thanks!

You go girl. Absolutely right, and I love how your heart is on fire for God now, it shows! God and family ALWAYS comes first! And you seem to be on track, your motivating to me too, because with mommas, it seems that every now and then we get to that road with 5 different roads. Remember with Christ at the head of your household, he also gives us PEACE in our hearts. That peace is always what gives us the clue that we are headed the right way.
