Sitting…at my dining room table.
Considering…sitting outside on the back porch but with all the rain we’ve had over the weekend, I imagine it’s pretty damp. Hence my usual position.
Wondering…if I have any status to report.
Reading…a lot. Titles I’ve recently completed include: The Help (wonderful!), Dough: A Memoir, Every Secret Thing, The Great Gatsby (not my favorite), The Bookends of the Christian Life (also wonderful!).
Needing…to write up some reviews for 5 Minutes for Books. Obviously my writer’s block isn’t limited to my personal blog but pervades all writing responsibilities. I don’t even reply to email! 🙂
Dreading…the busyness that is May.
Weary…of the (seeming) sameness of my life. Wake up, shuttle kids, do laundry, shuttle kids, go to bed. Same dirty house, same melancholy tendencies. Same battles, same defeats.
Thinking…I am far too funk-y and melancholy to be attempting a blog post.
Amazed…by my number one son’s cycling skills. I think I told you about being so nervous watching him race grown men a couple of weeks ago? This past weekend I watched him race in a MONSOON, praying against a crash (did I mention the MONSOON?), holding my breath as he sprinted for fourth. Seems like yesterday he was hurtling his Fisher Price trike as fast as it would go down the hill on our street.
Intending…for number two son to sort through his clothes today and numbers three and four to clean the disaster area that is their room.
Bracing…for much wailing and gnashing of teeth this afternoon.
Wanting…to grow my hair longer but also wanting it cut. Maybe a trim will help?
Compiling…a (mental) list of the things I could blog about but probably won’t (did I mention blogger’s block?). Things like watching a cycling race in a MONSOON. How my field trips fared (and how much I rejoice that my field trip days are numbered, yes and amen). About the Lord teaching me yet again that He is glorified in the small, the simple, the mundane and the ordinary, if it is done in His name and for the sake of His Son. How grateful I am for my Bible study group and how much I will miss it when we go on break this summer. About realizing the stranglehold of condemnation and struggling to remember that the righteousness of Christ has set me free.
Convicted…of (choose one or more of the following) self pity, resentment, laziness, jealousy, selfishness, yelling, self preoccupation…I could go on. But I won’t.
Rejoicing…that that it is the kindness of the Holy Spirit that leads me to repentance! Those God loves He disciplines…
Thankful…for the emails and comments from friends and fellow bloggers curious about my recent hiatus. It’s nice to be missed.
Hoping…to return to (some semblance of) regularly scheduled blogging and soon.
