Stuck in Neutral

I kicked it into neutral on Friday.

Hubby was coming home and I was going to do nothing but devote my time to soaking in every minute that he was home.

We made it through the trip to the airport on Monday for the return flight. I've written before about airport reunions and how joyous they are...well...departures...not so much. I think I'll have to save that for another time...just don't have the energy for it today.

Fast forward to Wednesday, and I'm still in neutral.

This whole idea of neutral is for some reason, humorous to me. Maybe because I just took our four wheeler to the shop because it won't go into neutral.

I digress...

So I'm stuck in neutral....can't quite figure out how to get it in drive again.

This departure has been really tough. Harder than usual. I think it's robbed me of my will to want to get out of neutral. I sorta feel like I just want to sit a while and watch life happen and not be involved.

But the reality is I have to kick it in gear and keep on keepin' on. :)

And as usual God is there.

Always with me...sending me beautiful feet to encourage me.

Letting me know that Daddy is here, Daddy is near.

Both for me and for my sweet girls.

I ran across a quote yesterday...of course I know Who sent it my way...and I'm standing on His promises....

"God has placed you where He has placed no one else. No one else in the world has the same relationships you have. No one will stand in the same grocery store line at exactly the same moment you do. God hasn't put you in those places merely to model the truth. Listen for the voice of the Spirit to whisper in your ear. Watch for the stranger on the road, and be aware of your opportunities to go where He would send you." ~Chuck Swindoll

Praying you grow where He's planted you today,



  1. So beautiful! I loved this post. It connects with something I wrote today about taking the "first big step." God bless you!

  2. Praying for you Tracey. I cannot imagine how heart breaking this has to be! Praying for you......!
