I've always been a scheduler. I LOVE lists- shopping, to-do-, pro/con, whatever. I love charts. When I was 10 I made our family's first chore charts. Anything that makes me feel organized. So.. I'm a control freak I guess. The next 4 weeks are going to be absolutely crazy in my life. I do not like being overly busy and feeling stressed- but that's exactly what I feel right now lol! So tonight I sat down and "mapped out" the next 4 weeks. I'm juggling ACT studying, my Spanish class at the college, my homeschool stuff, work, church, 2 retreats (one of which I'm leading worship at). It's alot. But after planning out goals for each week I feel alot better about the next month. And I know that I will rely on Christ and look to Him for affirmation and not the world. I will not accomplish all of these things with perfection but I can do them with a joyful heart- and that is what Christ wants from me. For me to put forth my best effort and serve Him gladly with all things. So I'm hanging up my chart under my calendar and I'll soon begin crossing things off my list. I apologize in advance to whoever has to work with me while I'm planning my wedding or preparing for an adoption- I will be list-crazy LOL.
