A Small Request

It’s late and I still have things I want to do before I go to sleep. I want to blog about the yummy taco dinner we had last night and the secret twist I discovered in keeping costs down. I need to make Tim’s breakfast. I should do laundry and tidy up a little bit. I want to read the 5 blogs I have open in my browser and catch up on the latest posts.

Can you tell I am having a VERY hard time making my 11 pm (or even 11:30) bedtime this week. I’ve been slowly pushing the alarm clock back later and later in the morning.

This is not good, especially as the thing I end up cutting out of my day is my time with the Lord.

Arghhh!! Definitely NOT good.

gimme a hug

I know exactly how you feel, Little Buddy.

So, if you read this and you are a praying person, I would ask that you pray for me. Pray that I would remain focused on my priorities, that I would have discipline in my day, that I wouldn’t neglect my Bible study time.

It has been a cold and rainy week with no end to this particular weather trend in sight. Pray I will be wise in parenting my slightly stir crazy children and loving in how I manage their (seemingly never ending) sibling disputes.

I am greedy for prayer and thank you so dearly for lifting me up!!

  1. Father, I pray you’d awaken in Kathy (and myself) a desire to be with you that far outweighs any desire to check blogs. Let us feel restless until we’ve been in your Word. Thank you for your mercy and forgiveness when we end up choosing blogs over the Bible. Help us to prioritize, to be an example to our kids. Order our days. Bless Kathy today. Show her, remind her, of all she DOES accomplish. Protect her from lies and schemes that tell her otherwise. I pray you’d give her a beautiful, restful day with few sibling disputes! We love you!

  2. I will be praying for you my dear friend. I am amazed at all that you do each day! You inspire me. And…I think you should cut yourself a break! :)

  3. I know exactly how you feel, Kathy. I don’t skip my time with the Lord, but it just becomes a box to check off and the computer stuff is what’s fun! Something’s wrong with that picture!

  4. I prayed that you will wake up refreshed, ready to accomplish the tasks that God has set before you, and that you would have the wisdom to know what those are!

    If you think of me, I could use prayer that I would stay disciplined about my schoolwork. I have a feeling this is going to be a LONG semester!

  5. Praying right now- for you, dear dear Katherine.

    I’ve heard it said when we can’t pray for ourselves, others will ‘stand in the gap’ for us. I’m happy to do that this day.

    I love you, Aunt Kate

  6. Will do, dear Kathy. We especially empathize with cold and rainy. It’s our norm, and we know how it can fuel grumpiness and weariness both. Pretend you’re Norwegian: suit the kids up in rain gear and boots and make them go outside anyway for 15 or 20 minutes of wildness or running or something. I just came in from a walk, and passed by the kindergarten where workers and children were all out playing in the playground even though it’s pouring rain and 40 degrees. You’ll be in our prayers.

  7. Will do that, Katherine. You have a difficult job and many interests. Almost impossible to include them all. I’m praying God will shed light on the solution. I do understand and love you.

  8. Father God,
    Thank you for creating Kathy and giving her a wonderful husband and children. Thank you also for implanting in her a desire to seek you for the guidance to be the wife Tim needs and the nurturer her children need. Stand guard, my God. Help Kathy fight your foe that desires to tear from her the strength to do your priorities for the family you have given her. May her day today be full of your love and contentment fulfilling the plan you have set out for this day.

  9. I will pray for you! I don’t get to read your blog often but something told me to today! I also recently asked for prayer request on my blog…Look for the post called Prayer Request from a Crazy Man. Remember God is always there, even if we don’t seem to be!

  10. Dear Lord,

    I lift up Kathy to You now. Draw her near to You. Keep her mind stayed on Thee as she accomplishes all the You have given her to do. May she be diligent in her tasks and bask in Your presence. Give her strength, patience, calmness, and pure joy as she lives this day. To You be the glory. Amen.

  11. I actually am going through the same thing right now. This morning, I forced myself to get up early to take a shower and make breakfast before the kids were up. My priority now is to share the Word with the kids in the morning. I am not a morning person. So, as I am dragging myself up in the moring, I’ll pray for you too. :)
