I have lost my blogging groove.
Long gone are the days of scheduled posts,
reply's to comments, and link parites.
heck, I didn't even post yesterday
now I stare at the pile of ironing
the chapters of reading
and the lunches that need making
and wonder how it is all going to get done.
do you have weeks like this?
seasons of life like this?
where it seems that it's one thing after another?
and in the midst of this, I finally went where I should have gone all along.
and James chapter 1" Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters,[a] whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3 because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. 4 Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything."
I am looking at these things differently. Not because of a positive outlook, or because I'm on optimist (because I am not always), but because they are to be counted as joy.
I'm counting blessings. Knowing that God is good, knowing that He gives good gifts.
because He is in the midst of this.
running, and long runs that cleanse
three day weekends
new recipes to try
first day of school
time to get things dons
