A Little R & R

Life is never dull. 

The Hanson House is in an uproar, and my patience and good-nature is hanging on by a thread. I am in desperate need of a break, and am aching for a chance to re-charge.   I know it’s time for me to get away when I start to feel like…………..

1. I am drifting in my walk with the Lord, I can feel it in my bones.  The dry place where my stubborn nature and sense of pride keep me from crying out and admitting my weakness, my need for a savior.

2.  My husband and I aren’t communicating efficiently and we haven’t carved out enough time to just reconnect.  Kids, sports, work, life, and the general edginess of disagreements that we haven’t wanted to deal with.

3.  Our routine is off, back to school time is great for getting routines back and for things to finally fall into a pace that is familiar. Yesterday threw our “normal” routine into an uproar.  Mac was adjusting to kindergarten better than I anticipated, UNTIL  Cooper hurt himself and is out of school until at least next week.

Mac melted today when he found out that Coop wasn’t going to be in the classroom down the hall.  It broke my heart to hear Mcguire  react that way.  Cooper was sad too because he loves his role of big brother and takes it very seriously.  For Mac knowing his big brother is just down the hall is a sense of security, and everyone needs some security.

I need to get back into my “spiritual” routine, seeking God’s face and his direction for my life.  I am anxious for bible study to start again this fall.  I have enough of a student in me that the “work” of doing a study is good for me, it keeps me focused and motivated to get in the word and soak it in.  I don’t want to always need to have a study to keep me on track, but it’s so easy to fall into the, “I am so busy,” mentality.  I don’t want to be too busy for God, I want to need him like I need air in my lungs.

Cooper goes to an Orthopedic doctor tomorrow, for a consult and then we’ll decide what steps to take next.  Would appreciate some prayers for him, and for Mac as he navigates school without his big brother!
