anxious much?!

I am currently sitting in the airport trying to get back to Charlotte. I have been in New York all week for work and I'm ready to be home. Currently we are on a 3 hour delay because of the wind. I am being patient and trying to occupy my time by reading, people watching, working and now blogging!
I feel like its been a long and crazy week and I'm trying to get my arms around whats going on!

This week has been VERY interesting. Here are some things that are going on in my head: I have realized that I have so much to learn in my job, I need to think more strategically, I gained a ton more respect for my wonderful boss, I have better teammates than I thought, I worry too much and I am REALLY a grandma.

I didn't want to start the year off being anxious about work, eating healthy, working out, saving money, growing in my faith and everything else...but clearly that is what it has started as.

So I was reading Shawn and Kalle's blog and this is what he said:
"I find myself continually repeating Paul's words, "Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."
Peter also writes, "Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God... casting all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you."

What does being anxious about life get me...nothing except crazy pills and crazy dreams :)

Peter and Paul had it right...I guess I need to start over the year and really listen to what they said!
That was a random blog...thanks for bearing with me.

Serenity now. That's what I tell myself. And I am trying to learn patience this year... or at least be MORE patient.
