Pin It
Howdy guys and dolls! I've miss you all and I've had quite the week. Little Bit is still feeling a bit under the weather and I think I will try to get him to the doctor this week. I live in the Shenandoah Valley in Virginia which is a gorgeous place but it is also HORRIBLE for allergies. See my beautiful weeping cherry tree? Lovely but it makes for nasty congestion.  I think Little Bit may need to go on Zyrtec or Benadryl. I have him on Clariton but he is still pretty icky.

Hubs is taking some time off from work this week. We are heading out on a date to see The Hunger Games tomorrow. I love it when he takes stay-cations. Even though he works from home he still has to work. It's nice when he can officially take a day off and we can have family time.

I've been doing a lot of praying and soul searching during my little respite. I have been burdened with a huge amount of Momma guilt for some time now. I can feel the claws of sadness on me. As I prayed about it this week and when the point was driven home by the Pastor on Sunday.

I know the problem lies within my own heart. Now that I feel I have started to scratch away the surface of the problem I can see the little crack where the devil is easing his way into my life. Satan will NOT steal my joy. I end this now. Only through the love and grace of Jesus Christ am I saved and freed from the bondage of sin. "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." Philippians 4:13

What have all of you been up to? Did I miss anything Earth shattering while I was away? Are you to caught in the bondage of allergies and pesky attempts by the devil to steal your joy? 


  1. Sorry to hear about your sadness. Prayers coming right at you! Seems that Little Bit is suffering from maybe what one of my daughters is.She's bad when it comes to this time of year with her asthma and her allergies on top of each other. I'll keep praying for you guys! I've got some great news though! My shop is open! It's been lot of work but I've got it going.

  2. Very nice post. I do hope that Little Bit will feel better soon. and I am glad that you are finding your way inspite of the guilt and sadness you are feeling. You got my prayers as well. I do got an award for you just in case you missed this :)

  3. I love that... a Staycation. Great new word you made up.

    I doubt that you missed a thing while you were on your little blog rest. Hope everything settles down for you and you and your family get to feeling super again

  4. I hope Little Bit feels better soon! I am sorry for your sadness and am sending many hugs & well wishes your way! ~

  5. So glad to see you're back. Hope Little Bit gets well soon too! The only earth shattering news on my end is life in a motel with the 5 of us. I've been posting about it on my site. Your weeping cherry tree is beautiful!

  6. Super jealous that you're seeing Hunger Games tomorrow. We probably won't be able to see it for a few weeks and practically everyone is or has seen it.

    Allergies hit me when I visited my parents but as soon as I got home, I felt fine again...apparently I'm allergic to my family ;).

    I hope you're able to find the balance in your life which will alleviate the guilt and bring back tremendous amounts of joy.
