My poor blog. It gets so little attention from its author these days. I had fully intended to not only finally put to the keyboard the posts that have been rattling around in my head but to even set up for myself a posting schedule of sorts. In other words, I was hoping this week would mark a return to more consistent posting.
Not so fast, my friend.
Real life has intruded and instead of spending my day today thinking and typing I must instead tend to the demands of home and family. Which is as it should be. Though I may wish for ME time to be spent doing what ME the blogger wants to do, it is right and good and necessary that I spend it doing what me the wife and mom and keeper of the home ought to be doing. Being busy at home, whether I like it or dread it, is the call of God on my life. I am to work heartily, as for the Lord, because it is the Lord Jesus I am serving. Yes, even as I mop and scrub toilets and clean out closets, I am serving with Lord with gladness, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.
Tomorrow, just like I did
last Wednesday two weeks ago, I plan to post links to some of the posts I’ve enjoyed reading over the past week. Thursday through Saturday I will be at the True Woman Conference and I am so excited! In the past, the True Woman people have streamed the conference online; check out the website to see if maybe you can join us virtually for some great teaching!
After that, I really hope to return to some form of regularly scheduled programming here at the blog. In the meantime, I ran across this quote printed off someone’s blog I think. Anyway, it reminds me to live today the life God is sending me…
The great thing, if one can, is to stop regarding all the unpleasant things as interruptions of one’s own or real life. The truth is, of course, that what one calls the interruptions are precisely one’s real life–the life God is sending one day by day. ~ C. S. Lewis
Happy Tuesday, friends!
