In the search of....

These past couple of weeks, I have been in a blah, a fog, if you will. Nothing bad, per se, just the same things day in and day out that the rest of you I am sure deal with as well. The same family, time, seasonal and everyday issues everyone faces, but for some reason it seems to have gotten the best of me. The last couple of days, I have really been searching. Mostly inside myself, since I know that feelings like this, at least with me, usually start there. My kids are all doing well and are healthy, Frank is working hard and classes are going well for him. My "job" at the church is going really well, I feel. What can it be? So, I am in search of happiness. Sounds like a cliche, right? Not necessarly so in my case. I am truly a happy person for all intents and purposes and I seem to have lost it, so I am looking for it! I know that I need to be looking to the One who created me inside and out and let Him show me where my happiness and wholeness comes from and I am trying, really I am. Just while I am on this part of the journey, I am still looking for my true happiness and am impatiently waiting for it to return.
In my devotions today (not a coincident, I know):
"The strngth and happiness of a man consists in finding out the way in which God is going and going in that way too." ~ Henry Ward Beecher

You know I have been in the same boat. I haven't wanted to really do anything. I feel better when I do. I too have a good husband, sons, church, life. Girl I will be praying for you. The Lord will either pull you out of it or bring you through. Have you ever heard that song "Sometimes he calms the storm and other times He calms His child" I have to remember that alot.

You know, I'm new to blogging and just realized that I could click on my interests and find others with the same and I don't believe that I found your blog by mere coincidence. I have found myself, very much in the same place recently and this has ministered to me both this entry and the one before hand about being random! My childhood best friend would always say... "What? Where did that come from? You are so random!" Sometimes, I think it's God's divine intervention...a break in the mundane get us back on track!

I'll visit again! I appreciate the atmosphere!
