Update

Wow...long time. It's been awhile! Whew...can I just say that here? 'Cause that is so how I feel when thinking about where the time has gone. I have not stopped since we got back from our vacation in July. Crazy!
So for a quick update...the highlight of my crazy month of August is that I have backed out of the part time job I was doing from home. The call came from a Beth Moore DVD where she simply said "some of us are just so overloaded we can't go on to the next thing with God." As I sat in a room filled with women I tried desperately to hide the tears that would not stop pouring down my face. All I could think about was how in 20 years it would absolutely not matter to me what I had done with creating spreadsheets or mailing packages or the myriad of other things I was doing, but what would matter is what I done with and for Jeremy, Zoe and Matt. As I wrestled with giving up this job I thought but what about the money? Almost instantaneously I sensed the Lord's kind whisper "and do you think I can't cover that?" Long story short, I am no longer doing the job. I am a wife, a mom, a friend, a sister, a cousin, a daughter and not to mention a child of God who is rediscovering the Love of Jesus through His word and listening for His voice. That is just enough for now and I am so grateful that I have the ability to do just that.

Oh Maggie, your post today was worth the wait. You had shared your decision with me and I have been thinking about it since... Trying to find some balance in my own life. Lots to ponder. In the meantime, I pray that this is a refreshing time for you and the ones you love.

Wow, Maggie. What a decision. I can't believe it has been so long since we've caught up that I hadn't heard this news yet!

I love that you made this decision with Jesus. He's got you, girl. And He knows exactly what He's doing with you.

Maggie,
I miss you so much! I am so impressed by your constant looking to Christ for direction and where you should go in your life. I hope we can see each soon in the future.
