Sitting…on the sofa in the den.
Eating…a pop tart. Brown sugar and cinnamon.
Feeling…yuck. Like my head will explode. Ears stopped up. Throat sore. Body fatigued.
Excited…about a real, live byline! “Home Life” magazine, April 2009! Look for it at your local Lifeway bookstore if you’re curious!
Shameless…self promotion above, I know it.
Shocked…at just how much of a d-r-a-w-l my Southern drawl is! Have you listened to our 5 Minutes for Books podcast discussing Les Miserables? Good grief, I’m thinking I need some elocution classes!
Watching…“Pride and Prejudice,” the Keira Knightley version. In between typing, that is.
Wondering…where all the hours in my day go? We are currently on a sports hiatus and thus home every night but I’m more behind than ever! How is that?
Outside…my proverbial comfort zone, training to be a counselor at the crisis pregnancy center. I am excited about ministering to the women of our community and sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ–but I am also overwhelmed and nervous!
Amazed…at the strangeness of the weather! Snow on Sunday, mid 70’s on Friday. Weird!
Finished…our study of Brokenness in ladies’ Bible study. The Lord was so good to us! I think we all enjoyed a healthy dose of conviction but in the process discovered an even greater measure of grace…We plan to continue with Surrender, the next book in Nancy Leigh Demoss’s “Revive Our Hearts” trilogy.
Pondering…Jesus’ call to deny ourselves and take up our crosses and follow Him. The call to discipleship is a call to die–not a call to ease and comfort and the fulfillment of all the dreams and desires I may have for this life. In fact, the Bible is clear that everyone who desires to live a godly life will be persecuted. Suffering, difficulty, these are to mark the life of the believer. Can I be like the early disciples who counted suffering for the gospel a privilege? I don’t and I am ashamed, particularly as I consider that for them suffering meant martyrdom while for me it’s something, well, just plain silly in comparison.
Resting…now as I give Lizzy and Darcy my undivided attention and wait for the meds to kick in!
