I have a lot on my mind.

Thank God I don't have work tomorrow, because I can't sleep.

I know I said "minimal" blogging this week, but I have a lot on my mind.  Like a lot, A LOT.

Every night I pray.  I've said the same prayer for years (with the recent addition of Lucy).  I thank God for Lucy, Casey, my parents and siblings, and I ask that He guide us to happiness.  I ask that he provide for us, as he always has.  Well lately my prayer list has gotten a lot longer.  Sometimes I fall asleep before I finish praying.  Sometimes I forget to pray for certain things because there is just so much on my mind and so much to pray for....

Lucy's health
Lucy's happiness
Lucy's future
Casey's health
Casey's happiness
Our marriage

I'm probably leaving something off.  And as I've put this list to words, I've expanded on each item in my head.  You can thank me later for not sharing.


  1. I totally understand. I totally have this same hour long conversation in my head each night too.

    An ditto falling asleep while praying.

    Tonight, I'm praying for you and your list- that your heart's desires come true and that above all you allow His plan for you and your family to come to fruition.

    Just remember: "God can do anything, you know—far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams!" Ephesians 3:20

  2. You are the best Jenn!!! All I could do was smile when I read this. *hugs*
