Yikes, it has been exactly 49 days since I last blogged…ouch! For those of you that do not know we just came off a hot 15 or so weeks of tax season for my accountant hubby. Let’s just say staying afloat is about all that got done these past couple of months. In addition, I had this wild hair to start taking college courses last fall. Right’n some wrongs you could say. While I enjoy my schooling, its not easy and by the time I get done reading, posting, writing, you name it for school…well lets just say I don’t have much “inspiration” left.
Nevertheless, I find myself in a short little reprieve and I just have to satisfy this ever present need to communicate electronically.
I do not have a lot to say today, hopefully I will have more time to squeeze in blogging in the coming days/weeks. But I do have a couple of things I would like to ask you, my friends and readers, to pray about for and with me. This is a bit deep, but I know you can handle it.
1. This book that keeps rocking my world…The Cure for the “Perfect” Life: 12 Ways to Stop Trying Harder and Start Living Braver by Kathi Lipp. This book is teaching me how to rebel from the person I am not, yet constantly allowing to take over and embrace the God given gifts within me to become the me He created me to be. It has really been tugging at my heart and stirring some good things inside me.
2. Parenting! Need I say more? I long for wisdom and guidance as I mother our children. Words to speak to the heart of my almost teenage daughter to help her discern tough choices. Words to express to my son who is constantly struggling with generalized anxiety and a serious lack of negativity towards life. We so need a breakthrough for him. We so need God to wreck him and take over his heart. Patience with my two youngest girls as they find testing their boundaries as young, curious, adventurous, bright little girls to be a fun hobby…that might just make this momma crazy! I am completely open to words of encouragement and advice in any of these areas!
3. Patience and Wisdom. We have some big things developing in our home life and we just need patience and wisdom as we make decisions for our future and for every day.
4. Time to write. My mind is constantly rolling with blog, book, and journal ideas. What I lack is time to write. Join me in prayer that not only I will find time, but we will all find the time we need so desperately to do those therapeutic things that keep us moving forward.
With all this being said, God is gracious and I know all of this is in His plan!
