My heart and emotions are so confused right now.

Because the circumstances in my life and both horrible and wonderful.

So much so, that I actually found myself in tears at work on Monday.
And that hasn't happened in a looooooong time.
Amidst the stresses I have been trying to be strong, trying to do my best, trying to fill the holes as best as I can. I've been plugging along like that little engine, I think I can. I think I can. I think I can.
And I finally realized, I can't.
I was pushed back and about to fall, but the LORD helped me. The LORD is my strength and my song; he has become my salvation.
~Psalm 118:13-14

On the other hand, I am leaving tonight to go to Illinois. I'll be speaking for a parents' group in Lisle, IL tomorrow morning, and then I am going to see my girl in Wheaton. *smile*
I have a birthday party to attend Friday night, and a wedding Saturday.
There is lots of celebrating good things coming up in the next days.
And that's wonderful!

So, in the midst of the confusion - when my heart can't decide whether it should be "up" or "down" - I am frequently remembering Psalm 118:13-14. The LORD is my strength and my song.
Let us hold firmly onto HIM.

P.S. I cannot see any realistic hope that I'll be able to do any blogging for the next several days. LORD willing, I'll be back sometime next week.
