I'm so glad you've stopped by my blog! I am a Women's Minister and a former Pastor's Wife. I love finding God in my regular-everyday-stuff. I struggle with keeping up with the laundry, I love blogging, and my kids are my first line of ministry. I am recently widowed. So God and I are on a brand new journey as I try to find peace and understanding. Please grab a cup of coffee and let's get to know one another as we journey on our faith walk together.

Do you ever feel "spent"?!

Wow!  It's the beginning of a new week in the Franklin house and everything is in high gear.  My husband is a Pastor, so typically the beginning of the week is our time to recover & catch up from a busy Sunday.  This week is no different.  My list for the week is probably much like yours, groceries, loads and loads of laundry, clean bathrooms, wash sheets, and clean small kids' rooms.  Then I've got a few others that are "must do's" - write lesson for Sunday, I'm starting a new ladies Bible Study this week, check on the visitors that came on Sunday - oh my!  And of course handle all of this with 2 children under the age of 6!  It's enough to make my head spin!  All of these are wonderful things (well, except for the cleaning of the bathrooms - I'm actually quite scared of what I will find in my son's bathroom!) and I want to do them for my family.  However, often times these are the very things that make me feel... spent and exhausted.

Recently I read about another woman who felt very spent in many areas of her life and yet was given an amazing word of promise and hope.  A word that you and I can lean & rely on as well.

Your sis in the faith,
