I Am Not Alone

As I sit and write this I feel overwhelmed, anxious, stressed, and all other emotions that one would feel when a large event is occurring. This week is retirement week. Yes, hubby’s retirement ceremony is this Friday. I woke up and all these emotions overtook me. I was not a pleasant person this morning. I did not like how I was acting or feeling. I was praying “Lord help me.” This is supposed to be a time of rejoicing and happy moments not anger or stress. Of course He reminds me of the many blessings He has given us these past couple of weeks and I can begin to feel a sense of peace stirring within me.

I cannot stress about the upcoming events because if He has blessed us before why wouldn’t He now? He has never left us so why would He now? Whenever I have called out to Him, He has always embraced me and carried me through. So why wouldn’t He now? I woke up this morning feeling like I had to handle this 55 page to-do list by myself forgetting that He will be with me the entire way helping me. Okay my to-do list may not be 55 pages but it sure feels like it.

I am not alone, He is with me.

576. The birth of my new nephew

577. My morning Bible time

578. Finding out we have another niece or nephew on the way and will be here early next year

579. My close friend who came out and ran the 5k with me and her winning 3rd in our age bracket!

580. Watching my hubby becoming stronger each day

581. My two blessings watching me cross the finish line in the 5k

582. Those who are helping us prepare for the retirement ceremony

583. God reminding me that I am not doing this alone

584. He is with me



  1. Congrats on crossing that finish line - and on your husband's retirement - He is always, there - just like you said - I always have to remind myself, too.!

    1. Thank you! We can get caught up in the moments that sometimes we fail to realize that He is with us through it all. He never forsakes us :)

  2. Congratulations!! Great list of thanks. :)

  3. Retirement. I think hubby is gonna stay in the Army until we croak! Congrats. I'm a bit jealous.

    1. If hubby's body wasn't so broken I think we would too! People are starting to call him the bionic man with all these different surgeries he is having...lol
