February = 1, Katie = 0

Wow.
February,
You got me. You win.
You've made me
exhausted and unmotivated.

February, you have:
asked me to work long hours,
made me drive 8 hours to Dallas and back,
scheduled me to work for TFA all weekend,
taken up every "free" Saturday with tutorials,
made me crave vegetables after eating so much junk,
caused my schedule to consist of
work, eating (sometimes), and sleeping (sometimes),
piled up the laundry,
made me go to the grocery store late at night
just so I can have something to eat for lunch,
helped me throw lots of pity parties,
given me a few chest pains and a knot in my shoulders,
caused me to cry over a copier at Kinkos,
made my workout calendar ridiculously bare,
and
nearly made me want to quit this blog
{and everything else, for that matter}.
Oh, February. You think you're so great. But you're not.
You've made me very tired and a little depressed.

But, you're almost over.
Hooray!
For now, I will combat you with large quantities of
Shane & Shane and Brandon Heath.
It's the only thing that will drown you out.
Believe me... I know.
Good thing God is greater than February.
With one word the storm will be gone.
With one word the war will be won.
With one word I know I can overcome.
...Jesus.
{Shane & Shane, "With One Word"}

You are good, you are good, when there's nothing good in me.
You are love, you are love, on display for all to see.
You are light, you are light, when the darkness closes in.
You are hope, you are hope, you have covered all my sin.
You are peace, you are peace, when my fear is crippling.
You are true, you are true, even in my wandering.
You are joy, you are joy, you're the reason that I sing.
You are life, you are life, in you death has lost its sting.
{Shane & Shane, "Forever Reign"}

The only thing that matters is your love.
...It's all I have to give.
Your love is enough to light up the darkness
It's your love. All I ever needed is your love.
{Brandon Heath, "Your Love"}

Love your post! You always know how to add creative flair to whatever you write. I awarded you a stylish blogger award because I think you are great! (And because I cry almost every time I read one of your posts. happy tears, though)
:)
