Not There Yet

Still no bed in sight - you know what I mean... (see previous post) - but some progress has been made. Well, hardly, but there has been productivity. When I was considering my three days (once again, see previous post) I forgot that a bridal shower was being held here last night, hosted by my daughter and others. I made chicken pate (an all day affair, it turns out) as my offering, Brietta made cranberry upside down cake and we all came up with a Waldorf salad.

I also forgot that today will be our first gathering for a Shakespeare Club - it will consist of a read-through of Julius Caesar (I'm the organizer - go figure - so I best not miss it.) It will take up the morning and part of the afternoon.

Then hubby arrives home at 4pm. So much for the big "dig-out". But, still, at least school has been accomplished and the downstairs is clean (my daughter suggested that I host the next shower in our bedrooms if I want them cleaned. Now that's a thought for all of us...)

I've enjoyed two days at home with family, read books with Merrick, did some grocery shopping, had breakfasts with devotions, cleaned a bit, wrote some letters, and cooked a meal, as well as various other things. All in all, it was good.

Still trekking, however, looking for the middle of the road once again. I think that may be my life story! But at least I'm trekking!

One thing I know. Jesus Christ will forever more be my goal, my purpose, my inspiration, my rock. He is my reason for living the way I live, for making the choices I make, for taking the road I am on. And I don't regret a moment walked with Him. I wouldn't change it for the world. He is, actually, my life story, my life song.

So on I go, filled with hope, expectation, and joy. I'm walking with the King of all kings - it doesn't get any better than this!

Well that is better than my husband's joking tease...."if I made you mad every day--the house would be always be clean!" ha ha

Why do we women tend to go into a cleaning furry when we are upset? At least it seems your family has learned to cope in the "normalness" of your home. Same with mine.

Balance is important....cleaning & reading some good books!

If our homes were always clean our lives would be a bore. I believe "hero" is an understatement when I think of all the things you go through in a week, let alone a year :)

If we have one thing in common, it is this:

"One thing I know. Jesus Christ will forever more be my goal, my purpose, my inspiration, my rock. He is my reason for living the way I live, for making the choices I make, for taking the road I am on. And I don't regret a moment walked with Him. I wouldn't change it for the world. He is, actually, my life story, my life song.

So on I go, filled with hope, expectation, and joy. I'm walking with the King of all kings - it doesn't get any better than this!"


Only you said it better than I could!

If I could only be sure that people understand this about me. I guess it makes no difference, though ... what really matters is that the Lord knows my heart, and He loves me both in spite and because of what is in there.

i'm afraid your posts are too inspiring . . . every time i read them i wish i were married with five kids and a wonderfully "messy" home. hmmmmmm . . . maybe i should stop reading these - it's not healthy for a young, handsome, incredible bachelor guy like me. can you write something regarding singleness so i don't feel so left our? ; )
