Come Over Here, Friday! Let Me Give You A Hug...

Oh people.  This has been a week.  I am blessed beyond measure and I am really, really tired.  Seven days of morning duty.  The first full week of regular classes and GED classes.  Overwhelming, but amazing.

Every single morning, before my feet hit the floor, I pray.  I pray for all of the things that need to be prayed over for my friends and fam.  Pretty standard.  But my new prayer has been for focus--focus on the things God would have me to say, be and do during the day.  And then I listen.  (Sometimes He lulls me to sleep again until the alarm goes off, not gonna lie.)   And I'm amazed by how much better my days have felt since I've been doing this.  It shouldn't be that surprising, but it is.

Nichole Nordeman even agreed with me about it this week on Twitter. At the time, I didn't really think it happened.  Totally thought I'd dreamed (dreamt??) it.  But when I checked back the next day, there the conversation was. Just one more reason why I love Twitter.  Where else in the world would that happen since Nichole and I aren't exactly having weekly duet meetings and ice cream?  (Though if we were friends, I'd like to think that's totally what we would do!)

Anyway, the moral of the story is that if you pray for focus, you will probably get it.  Though what I am noticing is that God is now giving above measure so that I can do a little more.  Isn't that how it always goes. I've never been so tired, and yet so happy, in all my life.

Wishing you all a great weekend!  Promise things will pick up around here once I get my routines down.


  1. I need focus right now... More than ever... I will try this right away. Thank you for the encouragement!

  2. I don't start until after Labor day, but I could use some focus myself.

  3. Asking for any help through prayer is a great way to take all the pressure off of you. Cuz, you know God listened and everything will "work out" and be put in the proper perspective. Keep up the prayers!
