I love to ramble at random. And I would often do so on my Facebook page, which my husband found extremely annoying. He’s one of those that if the post has to involve you pressing the button for “read more,” he ain’t doing it! So when I would “Facebook Blog,” he would always mention how I needed to get a blog-so he finally set it up for me. Little does he know, that’s been the plan all along.
I’m a bit spoiled, but that’s another post.
So today I just want to leave with you several thoughts…
Have you ever had a bruise on your elbow? Oh.My.Gosh. I know, it sounds all harmless, but it’s not. It’s so not. It’s painful. Well, maybe not painful, but it’s a nuisance. Anytime I graze arm across my desk, console in my car, whatever…it tingles. And so that’s been the painful part of the last couple weeks because once I got rid of the bruise on my right arm, I somehow obtained one on my left arm… Have I mentioned I’m clumsy?
Worship. I just love to worship Jesus. I was never a concert goer, and in fact I’ve only been to 2 concerts-Shania Twain and Jack Johnson. Yes I know, not even the same genre, but stay with me, I’m going somewhere with this… From what little I have experienced ‘live’ and what I have seen on TV, most people are quite excited to be there; singing the songs by the artist, waving phones in the air, jumping, etc… This is how I view worship. I am there to experience my favorite ‘artist.’ And sing His songs (as loud as I possibly can). And jump for Him (or dance or stomp my right foot-my daughter even does this). And “wave my hands in the air like I just don’t care.” So for anyone ever wondering why I worship the way I worship…there ya go!
My Planner/Bullet Journal is so not in order at the moment. So much so, that I feel like I barely know what day it is. Well, except for the fact that I do know tomorrow is my birthday. (I always know when my birthday is!).
Beth Moore. Go to YouTube and just watch some of her short clips. You’ll loose an hour of your life because you’ll be in awe of her awesomeness, but just do it. I mean, not until you’re done reading this of course. But yes, she’s awesome.
It’s that time of year… Ya know, when I post past pics of myself with short vs. long hair, and ask my nearest and dearest FB friends to select my destiny. But really, I am trying to decide whether to continue to grow it out and let my face look “drained” from the long length, yet have an easily thrown in a “mom bun” look. Or cut it off for something shorter and sassy and easy to manage with 3 kids, who like to check on you when you’ve been in the bathroom getting ready for too long. Decisions.
I love this quote I recently heard from a pastor quoting Andy Stanely : You’re 1 of 3 things-You are a mess, You were a mess, You are about to be a mess. Perspective. Because life is a continuous cycle.
Trump vs. Hillary. Are you kidding? I’m not touching that one with a 10-foot pole.
I’ve been reading lately. No one fall out of their chair please, but yes it is shocking news. But from the books I’ve been reading, articles I’ve been studying, messages from church, there is a common thread. What is it? Breathe. Focus. Plan. Discover your purpose and press on! So with that, my husband and I both have been talking about the future and God’s plan for us. And let me tell you, it’s a scary thing to openly talk about. Try it. It will scare the life out of you. Because essentially, you are staring your future in the face while praying/talking about ‘what do you want it to be’ or ‘what could/should it be’. And while yes, the possibilities are endless and exhilarating, you may discover that what you thought was just a ‘daydream,’ may be the very thing where God asks you to take action.
Finally. Yes, today is Sunday. Tomorrow is Monday. After the 2nd presidential debate. Before Taco Tuesday, if you do that kind of meal planning. And it’s my birthday Monday! So, you’re welcome. I’ve given you a reason to be glad it’s Monday.
