Today, we saw back to back movies. The bargain movie, 'Horton Hears A Who' followed by 'Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. That is serious juxtaposition. They were both very good and I only napped through part of the Horton one. Harry Potter books are so much better than the movies-I for one would just like to have a 15 hour HP movie that gets it all in, anyone else?? I KNOW Amy agrees with me!!
We have had a pretty fun day and yet I am in a seriously pissy mood this week. Again, juxtaposition. It is all of the deadlines, activities and stressors I have on me right now. No fun. I am feeling like a hamster in a wheel and I am pretty sure this is PMS week. Beware.
I have gotten so much accomplished this week and yet it looks like a bomb exploded in my house. Can you say 'juxtaposition'. I need to haul some things outta here!!
I love my church, my Lord and my life right now-but nothing seems to be going in a direction I am happy about. My girls continue to be the only middle schoolers in their Wed. night class which is depressing for a church the size of ours. There are TWO back to school bashes this weekend-I knew about the young kid one but was caught off-guard by the teen one. These two awesome events are squeezed right into a weekend that was already full of a family reunion, a big project and a St. Louis overnight trip with my hubby. ARGGH!! To say I am stretched thin (and yet somehow not THIN) is quite the understatement.
I am still reading the book 'Surrender All' and waiting for it to grab me-but I just keep not really agreeing with it. I just look to the spiritual hall of fame and I don't see people that re-arranged their whole lives to 'surrender'. David? Esther? Abraham? Noah? Some of them did things that seemed unusual to others-bordering on impossible. Sure, some of them were told audibly by God to move to another place but they still served God with their normal day to day lives. They did not have to search each day for GOD'S PLAN before getting out of bed. To me, surrender is a process, we do it a little at a time in our normal day-to-day life. I don't just wake up tomorrow and decide God has called me to move our family to Alaska to run a Christian bookstore and 'BELIEVE' Him for the financing. I guess I am just a weak Christian or something. More on this book when I finish reading it.
Okay, I think it is time to close this happy post out. I am obviously stressed, PMS'ing and pissy. All things that should keep one from writing blogs. ( :
