Really God?

My week, OK two weeks.....well if I'm being totally honest the last THREE weeks have found me asking, "Really God?" about every three minutes. You know how sometimes in life it just seems like a bunch of little things add up.
Those things seem to be what has been causing the extra acid "stress" in the pit of my stomach lately.
Just the little things that seem like they should work out or be obvious that are making me say,"Really?"
Situations with the upcoming married life retreat, friendships hitting a fork in the road, new friendships growing and being stretched, trying to get ready for school to start and having our ES at the charter leave.
All these little things are all fine and good on their own but all at once?
I've been reading through Job and I can totally picture him standing there with his head cocked, hand on his hips looking up to the sky saying,"Really God?" LOL! OK maybe that's me acting like a 2 year old when God is growing me.

I decided to take control of the only thing I could this week; well my attitude and response to people is the other I suppose. But the second thing is my hair. I asked my mom why I always want to make major changes to my hair when life is stressful........yup' you can guess the answer to that; C-O-N-T-R-O-L! So here is the new and improved "control freak."

Took about 7 inches off and can I just tell you how liberating loosing that hot pony tail was! So much cooler on my neck too! Oh I'm still standing here with my head cocked, hands on my hips saying,"Really God?" But at least my hair looks cute now! Ha! :)

I do the same thing with my hair. And feeling like it's time for the big chop-it-all-off!

What charter are you with? I'm an ES for River Springs & would gladly take your family :)

Thanks! It was hard to choose a color, but I finally went for it and we love it! It's Benjamin Moore- Tranquil Blue.
(I have commented on your blog a really long time ago but in case you were wondering who the heck I am, I found your blog through Jess Hekman & my Mom is Jan Nymeyer & I think you know her from RCS) :)

It's all about the little things friend! It looks great :) Of course I think any hair cut on you looks great ;) I hope your next week is much better and calmer!

You are one hot looking control freak! :)

Yes...very stylish - sometimes I wish I could do the same but I would have to do all including the 7 inches otherwise I would have a major fRO! I hear you on the "really God" thing too :) Trying to be patient sometimes is so hard.
