Did you miss me?
I haven't blogged since last week's 'Fess Up Friday because I'm in the middle of
Writer's Block 2011.
Actually, that's not true.
I'm not having writer's block, I'm just distracted.
And distraction in this case is good, because I'm being sidetracked by things that are really much more important.
God is helping me realign some skewed priorities, and he's been speaking to me about a lot of things.
It required an email that offended me greatly before God was able to get my attention and snap some things into focus.
Because lately I've felt really out of control.
Out of control with my housework.
Out of control with my mothering.
Out of control with my priorities.
Out of control with my marriage.
And I just kept trying to fix it.
My way, in my power.
Until I felt like a dried up dusty old well that people were still plumbing for water. I kept sending the bucket down, hoping to get something from myself, and I was getting sand in return.
Because I forgot where living water comes from.
So I've been asking for a drink.
And he sent me some homework.
I've been reading this:
And I've been listening to this:
And I've been praying for patience, sometimes with every breath.
And I can feel it starting to change.
The things that were wonky.
I'm tasting water.
And it is sweet.
So today, that's all I really have to say.
I could have told you some of the funny things that happened this week, because there were moments like that,
but 'Fess Up Friday is also about keeping it real.
And this week, for me, real isn't very funny.
if you want to write a post about how you're laughing at life or keeping it real, feel free to come link it up. I'd be happy to laugh at you ;)
