Hasn't even happened....

It always happens...

the day after a wedding, my mind races on what I could have done differently, what pictures did I miss, what would have helped the day go better, what equipment do I need to purchase next...

my mind races...

but let me tell you - my mind ain't nothing like my husband's

I've always said he is the world's best worrier ... he seriously needs an award.  Maybe the award is some sort of crown since it's his head that is full of these worries...

So the day after the wedding, Ricky says, "Did you get a picture of the sign at Jacobi's that had their name on it?"

Jacobi's is our little local town's gas station & for every event - a wedding, a birth, birthdays, even when people pass away, they sometimes will put a congratulation or sympathy or Happy Birthday up on their sign.

I turned around to Ricky & said, "Was it even on the sign?  I didn't see it!"

Ricky with all seriousness in the world said, "I have no idea - I'm just assuming it was there"

Oh great... get me worried about something that probably wasn't even there...

but then last night I was laying in bed thinking how bad I am about that...

Are you like this too?

Thinking about things that make you sick to your stomach... letting the "worry" take a life of its own & become an issue in your life... taking something that you have no idea if it's going to happen & believing it has already taken place?

Giving worry an energy of itself...

Isn't that so idiotic?

But I do it all the time...

But I'm also becoming more aware of this

Just taking a breath & remembering that half of the things I sit & make myself sick over... they're not even going to happen

I even had to have the conversation with some of the youth kids that no, there will actually NOT be a Zombie Apocalypse ... believe me, some of these kids worry about this with all the movies & tv shows lately...

Sounds funny to me that these kids actually worry about this...
... but does God look at me & shake his head at the things I worry about too?


I definitely think God gets plenty of laughs from me...


So here is to a worry free day for us all...

& to a Zombie-Free-Future! :)


  1. Either they won't happen or the worst case scenario is sooooo far from what your mind dreams up that it's laughable.

    So glad there are no zombies to worry about...my plate's full with all the stupid stuff our government is doing. Like if Big Brother is spying on me....does he hear me in the bathroom? XP

    Can I borrow your tights?

  2. I think we all worry. Some are better than others.

    One of my favorite quotes on worry comes from

    Wear Sunscreen by Mary Schmich

    Don’t worry about the future; or worry, but know that worrying is as
    effective as trying to solve an algebra equation by chewing
    bubblegum. The real troubles in your life are apt to be things that
    never crossed your worried mind; the kind that blindside you at 4pm
    on some idle Tuesday.

  3. I love the "anxiety girl" - that is SO me! (Although I'm not sure that at my age, I can be classified as "girl" - ha!)

    I keep reminding myself that when I am worrying, I'm trying to take back control ... if I give it back to God, I really have nothing to worry about. It's a lessen that I'm learning and relearning continuously - thank God He hasn't given up on teaching me that lessen.

  4. Yep, sometimes I'm a worst case scenario kind of person, but I'm trying not to be.

  5. Clearing throat...raising hand...Worrier (not warrior...lol)...right here! I am actually a little better since having met Kevin...he is very laid back! But I can totally relate! And I get it honest...my dad called me the other day and was so worried about the weather when he goes on vacation! I told him there was nothing he could do about the weather and then took a mental note to try and not worry about things out of my control!

    Cheering you to a worry free day! <3

  6. This is the third blog post I have read about worrying today.

    I am very sure God is trying to tell me something.

    Here's to a worry free day for all of us!

  7. Worry is what I do best! Until I stop and breathe and realize it does me NO good and it definitely does not glorify God. So then I chill until it happens again...and start the process over again :) Thank goodness he loves us! :)
