I'm too blessed to be stressed......

Okay...I know that I am too blessed to be stressed....but....somebody please call and remind me of that every single day until probably about December 23rd!!! I told some folk today....I haven't addressed a single Christmas card....and I haven't wrapped any gifts (well, except for the Angel Tree at church)....and I still have about 3 gifts to, yes I'm getting a bit overwhelmed!!!! I'm really trying not to, but it is so hard this time of year not to let all the "hustle and bustle" get to us and even sometimes get us down!!!

So....that brought to mind something that I heard several years ago, and I knew I had it written down in my driving up SP Pike last night (actually Pap was driving)....I was digging thru my Bible trying to find this.....and YAY!!!! was you get to share in it, too....but all I had was the acrostic....I researched and added the scripture:

S....Search the Word
2 Timothy 2:15
T....Trust God's Heart
2 Samuel 22:3
R....Rest on His Promises
2 Corinthians 1:20
E....Encourage One Another
Hebrews 3:13
S....Sing His Praises
Ephesians 5:19
S....Seek the Savior

Jeremiah 29:13

So....if you start to feel like the walls are closing in on you....and December 25th is approaching way too fast....just remember what "STRESS" stands for....and take the time to remember why we are celebrating!!!

In His Love...and with mine!!!


  1. spell it backwards.......



  2. good one Jess :-)

    and that's what stress does to us, it makes us want dessert and everything else LOL, or at least it does me, anyways.
    I'm trying not to be stressed too bad, but it's hard this time of year.
    there's so much going on, but lets try to just remember the true reason for the season and just enjoy time with family and friends :-)


Kind words are like honey—
sweet to the soul and healthy for the body.
