I have been home now for almost 2 weeks & in those 2 weeks I have been busy, both "mentally" & with actual things to do:) I'm enjoying being home again after nearly 5 weeks, ( it's amazing what all can happen in that amount of time :) *winks* It seems as though 3 little people have been suddenly been removed from my life, there is no longer a little girl who, as soon as she hears I am going to wash dishes, does a little dance & says; I want to! ( Aubreys version of dish washing consists of filling all manner of cups & bowls with water & lining them up on the counter:) there is no longer a little boy who begs for you to do puzzles with him & there is no longer a very small baby to hold. *sigh* I just now thought of it that since I came home I have not watched "Bullfrog" or Mark Lowry once! Please note: kidders favorites :) not that I mind because after watching them time & time again one is prone to get tired of it! I do wonder though how often their dear Mother has heard the bluegrass music of "Bullfrog" etc. since :)
It is very springy here for which I can be grateful. This season is very good at clearing out ones brain so that more mind boggling thoughts can enter :)
I have been thinking of a new series of blog posts that will perhaps appear on here before long. this is kind of exciting!
On another note:
I am learning that self pity is a very awful thing to allow into ones life ( I admit I'm not completely free of this) It hinders ones ability to think of others before ones self & it can very fast steal joy & make life seem empty. It is a sin that perhaps only your own self knows about but it makes whatever life it is living in very miserable. This is why the bible stresses putting Jesus first, others next,& ourselves last. Oh that I would learn how to do this better, That I would learn to live without trying to squeeze myself in between God & others & sometimes even trying to get in line before God, This has never worked & it never will!
These verses are slowly making more & more sense to me;
And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple. Luke 14:27
So likewise, whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple Luke 14:33
