Maybe it’s trip lag or maybe I’ve run out and my well is dry. But I cannot think of anything of value to say here in a blog.
I started the picture book about our trip – but the file totally disappeared from my PC. I had our IT guy run all through it yesterday and the file has literally disappeared. I had 65 working pages. To say I was a bit disappointed is an understatement. I am almost convinced the template file was corrupt. Will I start again?
Today, I don’t want to – so I’m going to sulk a few more days and see what I come up with. I have this strong belief that perhaps I was going in the wrong direction and the Lord stopped me. I’m not saying this to be snarky – but I do wonder.
Most of you know what this means: God Already Knew About This. And, it normally gives me great comfort but today I’m a little miffed.
Getting Back in the Groove
After being away five weeks it is rather difficult to get back in the groove. I already knew this would happen and I am resisting it with all I’ve got. I feel great physically but there is that pea under the mattress which is causing great discomfort!
This Too Shall Pass
I’ve had these “feelings” before and I know they go away – it is just the daily walking through that can be not-so-easy.
Hannah, our 22 y/o grandgirl is relocating to South Florida – her position at the Center of Hope for women turned into a nightmare for her. Outbreaks of impetigo, lice, and women defacating in the hallway were a bit too much. I told her one is either called to that or they are not. She is not. Moving forward and believing for her teaching certification in South FL. I believe this is an excellent move for her – she has a heart for kids and needs to exercise it in the right field. Prayers are appreciated.
Hubs On the Road Again
He will be driving the U-Haul!!! He will have a wonderful time with youngest son metal-detecting on the beaches of SoFL – as long as the tropical storm behaves itself. He’ll return home, rest again, and then face the real world of retirement! LOL! While he is gone, I plan to do a thorough cleaning of the flat and spend some time with 16 y/o grandson. Again, prayers always welcome.
Some Dreams are Rising Up Once More
That place on a lake decided to tickle my fancy once again. So, if any of you know of a tiny piece of lakefront in northern South Carolina raise your hand and message me! Perhaps a tiny house, garage, and a place to park Gracee…that’s what is on our minds. The Lord knows and that desire is in His hands. Yes, we welcome your prayers.
Doing the Next Thing
Those of you who know me best know that when I have these moments of deep-thinking the only thing I know to do is the “next thing.” That could mean a myriad of meaningless stuff. Doing the laundry. Scrubbing the toilets. Wiping down the kitchen. Buying fresh flowers (I did on Sunday). Changing our mantles. Putting new pillow slips on the couch. It is, by far, the best rx for me. It is positive productive activity and it’s what I need right now. THAT, and a good bit of creativity thrown in for the fun of it.
Just Writing This Down Helps
Thanks for reading and listening. Just writing it down is helpful. I know I’m not the only one who gets these bouts of gluhblahzaka’s – they are part of this earth life!
Heaven is Real & I’m Glad I’m Going!
If I didn’t have this Hope within me – I’d be full-fledged done! But, I do and I yearn for Heaven with a twinge of doing the next earth thing! Does that even make sense? I am betting it does! If you aren’t sure that heavenly home is yours? Just message me – and we’ll talk.
Thanks for listening y’all – I’m already feeling better and enjoying my second cuppa coffee this Tuesday morning – I feel so good I want to give something away. Your comment enters you in the give-away!
Rejoicing in Hope,
P.S. Having these feelings is not being a defeatist – it is being human and if YOU suffer from this sort of thing? Please know you are normal!
