I realize that I've been doing a lot of this lately.

I'm actually currently sitting in Chick-fil-A working on my billionth education project of the semester along with my billionth Chick-fil-A sandwich and realizing that there are a lot of things that I'm trying to do.

Key word: trying

It is in these times that I realize once again that I am NOT super-woman...nor will I ever be.

I cannot:

1) Keep a perfectly clean house at all times

2) get every assignment done weeks in advance

3) Be in 2 places at once

4) Not sleep and eat bad without feeling awful

5) Be amazing at everything I do all the time

At least not without looking like this:

But do have this:

Have you not known? Have you not heard?
The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He does not faint or grow weary;his understanding is unsearchable.
He gives power to the faint, and to him who has no might he increases strength.
Even youths shall faint and be weary,and young men shall fall exhausted;but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength;they shall mount up with wings like eagles;they shall run and not be weary;they shall walk and not faint.
Isaiah 40:28-31

And I can:

1) Make a joyful sound

2) Find comfort in the company of family and friends

3) Laugh

4) Restore my soul with music

5) Find wonder in God's creation

6) Enjoy the present and look forward to the future

And then I can do this:
