Upside Down, Inside Out

These past days for me have been really CRAZY. My schedules are really unbelievably full, that I can't believe that there are only 24 hours in a day. I am partially to blame for all the commitment I made, and maybe because I should learn when to say NO to some things. But a part of me believes that if I just commit all the things that I have laid ahead to the Lord, He will make things possible for me to accomplish and He will make sure I (and the baby) get the rest that we deserve.

I have no complaints with the work that our company has. In fact, the Lord has been faithful in answering our requests for certain projects to be awarded to us. So faithful indeed, that He gave us all the projects we bidded for, and more! I guess what makes it all overwhelming to me are the other things around and in me that I have to do still apart from the work at hand. I committed to help our Friends of Jesus Children's ministry in the production and marketing aspects of their musical (which will be showing already this Saturday evening -- Nicky is part of it, too!), which kinda shares a few of the working hours that I have during the day. I also had to make time to visit the wake and burial of my aunt who just recently passed away. It's not easy to shift from being an emotional wreck to being in work mode all in one day, but I had to do just that for me to get things done. Then of course, there's the everyday meeting with client that I need to attend to, the business trips, and the fact that I am limited in movement due to my being pregnant (I am already in my 6th month! Imagine the load I am carrying around by now!). Now add to this equation all the emotions that come with being pregnant, and the physical pains of the baby kicking at night as well as the sleepless nights that come with it. I think you get the picture by now...

And through all of these, I try to apologize to all the people and friends who I have neglected to spend time with (I know quite a few who are going through rough times right now and who who have wanted me to be with them), as well as all the readers of this blog who may have noticed that I have limited my posts to at least twice a week. God has blessed us with His provisions and I am gratefully accepting all that comes our way because I know that He knows I can handle it. When the work seems too much for me to handle in a day, He "postpones" a meeting or moves a deadline for me without me even trying. He even gave me a new staff (a new graphic artist) for my company to help out in the workload, and gave us the means to expand our office to accomodate our growing team. God is good to me always, and I will always acknowledge this. So in the midst of my crazy world right now, I am kept grounded by His presence.

Thank you to all my blogging friends who come by still despite my erratic posts. I am still around, don't worry. Hopefully in a week or two, things will be back to normal and I will be granted time to rest. As for now, I will just do the work that is sent for me to do and know that wherever I am now is where He wants me to be. :-)

Hi Chrixean. I'm so glad to read your business is growing but sad to read that everything is taking so much time. You and Kirsten Soleil need rest. Hope you get some soon.
