My thoughts...

I was listening to Joy FM today, and the man who was speaking said: "IF YOU WORRY, IT'S BECAUSE YOU DON'T KNOW GOD". I really thought about this becasue I have been worrying a lot lately. I have so much on my mind and I am usually so exhausted that I don't spend as much time alone with God as I should. Just last night I was fretting and by the time I felt better I fell into an exhausted sleep without spending time with God. And then I realized that the reason I worry so much is becasue I'm not taking the time with God that I used to. And it's entirely my fault. So please pray that I will get back on track. If I really get to "know" God more, I will truly not worry half as much as I do now. I know the verses, so why don't I listen to them? ...

"So don't worry, for I am with you. Don't be dismayed, for I am your God. I will make you strong and will help you. I will support you wih my right hand that saves you."

"Don't fret... it only leads to trouble"

"Don' be anxious about anything..."

And those are only a few of the verses on worry that I have memorized....

Things will be tough for all of us at times, but soon things won't be tough at all. We are God's children, and it says in the Bible that He loves his children. We'll be OK. So Erin: DON'T WORRY! And we need to get to know God more and more each day to fully trust Him and His promises. And I want to know God more.

"Seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well (our needs -in this passage it is saying our food and clothes...). Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own" -Matthew 6:33-34

How I love IV starts! :)

I just LOVE to start IV's. I do! :) I started 2 IV's today and I just love it. I love it so much that I even tried to start an IV on Jeff a while back. But he wouldn't let me finish because he is a man and we all know how men are, right *cough cough*. But I love him anyway... :) AND I LOVE TO START IV'S! I hope I can still do it in Alberta. LPN's have full scope of practice there so we'll see.

Well, the countdown is on and we are leaving soon. I am getting used to the idea and I am excited to move. I know I'll shed a few more tears before we leave, but I also know that God is in control and that He will never leave us. We'll be OK...

But I'll miss you guys.
