Then Sings My Soul Saturdays

Well today has been a hard one. Tony was suppose to be in last night and we had plans to go to his mothers today for Easter. Instead he is still on the road even now as I type. Sometimes its so hard to not get down over my husband being gone so much of lives. Its harder today because its Easter weekend and I want us to be together so badly. I've gotten use to him being gone during the week and in a lot of ways that in itself is sad. Use to I could have never dealt with that. Weekends though, those are suppose to be ours. Family time. Prayerfully he will be in tonight. I'm trying to check my attitude because I feel cheated and if I'm not careful I'll allow myself to use today to destroy our weekend and the precious time we do have together. Sigh....

So today I listen to the song you hear playing on my play list and I sing to the Lord. Because He knows, I can't hide myself from Him.

Lord I pray that You filter through me today, enabling me to bring my flesh and soul into submission and that my spirit soar full of Christ and that I take my family into the spirit of celebration and thankfulness for all You have blessed us with and that I not teach them to focus on what is not. Dwell with us this day, right in the midst of us and teach us more in spite of me. Amen.

Psalm 139
You search me

You know me
You see my every move
There's nothing I could ever do
To hide myself from You
You know my thoughts
My fears and hurts
My weaknesses and pride
You know what I am going through
And how I feel inside
But even though You know
You will always love me
Even though You know
You'll never let me go
I don't deserve Your love
But you give it freely
You will always love me
Even though You know

I'm so sorry that your plans have changed. It must be hard for you and the kids to have your husband gone so much. My husband has been out of town working a lot this winter, but I know that there is an end to it. This last trip was just suppose to be 3 weeks, but it's turning into 6 instead. We'll have to have Easter dinner again for him when he gets back. I really hope your husband gets in for Easter. By the way, I enjoyed the song by Rebecca St. James, too.

Thanks for visiting my blog. Is there any way you could travel as a family any of the time your hubby is on the road? I know of many families who do this. You might check out www.familiesontheroad.com if you're interested. I enjoyed your blog!

Your comments on my blog have touched my heart. Thank you. And I am sorry to read that your hubby travels so much. May the Lord, your bridegroom, wrap you in His loving arms during times like this and everyday. May you know that you know that God is near. He lives IN you...

Sing on, my friend. Praise Him.

I hope you had a wonderful Easter and that your hubby made it home. You're normal to feel letdown . . . I feel that way EVERY time my husband's travel plans are delayed! Blessings.
