Ok, so it’s a lot easier to take a minute to blog if you drink a margarita first.  I’m just sayin’.  Also, I’m writing this Thursday night and posting it Friday just so there’s somethin’ new for you to read.  So here’s what I have to say…

–  We had another planning meeting for our trip to Scotland this summer in July.  I can’t tell you how excited I am, and how already the Lord is changing ME in preparation.  Up until this point I had felt, unnecessarily, like a majority of the planning was up to me since I had been there before.  One of the things shared during our last meeting by Mark Wallace was 1.) not to overplan because you are essentially not leaving God any room to work.  Now I know that sounds very Saddleback and Seeker but let’s just go with the thought.  You see the intent, right?  God can do whatever He wants despite overplanning but the point was well-taken.  I want to prepare and be ready but the other thing he said was, 2.)  make sure you have no personal agendas.  It wasn’t so much that I had a personal agenda as much as I thought that if I don’t do it, no one will.  Well, that’s not true.  There are lots of WONDERFUL folks going on this trip who are just as called and JUST AS CAPABLE.   I told my awesome friend, Lisa who is going (hi Lisa!!) that I’m taking a week to do nothing in preparation but pray.  That I’m going to pray that God will help me release my grip and for HIM to lead.  My other awesome friend, Katie (Hi Katie!) who went last time with us but can’t go this time because she married some ol’ boy and moved to Louisiana sent me a portion of Scripture that is very important to me but I printed out and placed on my desk this particular verse, which is Ps 73:26 "My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever."  Thanks, Katie!  I can attest, that if I try to do it myself it will not be excellent.  But GOD alone, is excellent.  I’m going to let go and let HIM receive the glory.  Way to go, Kim!  🙂  And if anybody wants to help send me there to be used by Him, make your tax-deductable donations to Evangel PCA… hahaha… 

–  I have finished one of Meggie’s girl’s dresses and have put together the second; now I just have to smock it which is the FUN part!   I do need to try to get something for my OWN girls to wear for Resurrection Day this year, though I suppose!  I am going to take pictures before I ship them to her but won’t post them until she sees the dresses herself so she can give her stamp of approval. 

–  Pray for my sweet, wondeful overworked husband.  He is so stressed out.

–  I am considering weaning Bee a wee bit early.  I usually nurse past the one year mark if possible, but if I do that I would be missing the opportunity to go with Sister on her class’s trip to Washington DC in May.  Mr. Grits went last year with Jojo, and with our trip to Scotland which will take 7 vacation days, that would only leave him with 3 more days to use the rest of the year with the whole family!  I really don’t love the idea of weaning my forever baby early but I do have a whole family to think of here.  Ok, and selfishly, I’d really love to go and get away with her!  That would really be wonderful!

Must attend to the pots on the stove, but at least you have a blog to read now!  I’m still here!
