March Madness

March! This month will be busy... I have started to gear up for it. It's not all that different from March of last year, it's just a bit more intense this year! :-)

First off, work. Last year at this time, I was working only 22.5 hours per week. This year because of the downsizing at my workplace, leaving our department with only two people, I am expected to clock an average of 30 hours per week. Thankfully, I am able to manage with a little less than that and still meet my deadlines! God has indeed been supplying me with the energy and the focus for which I am thankful. I will need to continually draw strength from Him as the workload typically picks up each March before easing up again towards the end of June.

Next on the list, Destination Imagination! Last year, only my daughter's team competed at the provincial tournament while my son's team performed. This year, both teams are competing! While I am only co-managing my daughter's team, I am also helping to prepare my son for his team's presentation such as running through his script lines regularly. This year's provincial tournament happens on Saturday, April 4. We are starting to gear up for it by adding extra practice times. The kids are excited and so are we! We are starting to wonder how many of our school's teams will make it to the Global Finals in Tennessee this year. We'll see!!!

Then, there's church. Last year at this time, we didn't have Sunday services yet! We were just getting started. Now, we have regular Sunday services complete with a children's ministry department for which I am responsible for! Also, it just so happens that our pastor and his family are taking a much needed vacation this month... for the next two Sundays, hubby and I will be responsible for a little bit more stuff at church.

Plus, there's life in general!

Don't get me wrong... I love what I do (all of the above!) and wouldn't trade them for anything else. It's just that I need to focus, focus, FOCUS and FOCUS some more when things come into a collision course like it always seems to in March! I guess blogging about it and getting it out of my system enables me to feel more in control about the situation. Most of all, it helps me keep everything in perspective --- that God will supply!

So, deep breath, exhale... April will come soon!!!

Enough, By Chris Tomlin
(to listen to this song, see Playlist on the sidebar)

All of You is more than enough for all of me
For every thirst and every need
You satisfy me with Your love
And all I have in You is more than enough

You are my supply
My breath of life
And still more awesome than I know
You are my reward worth living for
And still more awesome than I know

You're my sacrifice
Of greatest price
And still more awesome than I know
You're the coming King
You are everything
And still more awesome than I know

More than all I want
More than all I need
You are more than enough for me

More than all I know
More than all I can say
You are more than enough for me
