It's been so very long since I posted here. I've posted at my other site, but perhaps I feel the need to say something worthy and deep I've kept my posting limited to a place where I don't worry if I sound silly or if parts of my personality surface that normally cause me shame. The fact that the last month has been CRAZY doesn't help either, since "me" time is harder to come by with my darlings home from school. We've seen movies, shopped, had ping-pong tournaments, gone to the pool, shopped some more, watched movies in the basement till all hours.....mostly it's the time. Someone wants mine, and doesn't want it divided with other things like computer work or even conversations with others in the same house!
I discovered how much I miss reading God's Word. Of course we've been going to church, although some days I think Jess worries so much about it because of her "boyfriend", but I mean my daily time, when the house is quiet and I just open to a random place. The time for structured study will come this fall, but summer is when I float, reading from the blogs, the Bible, praying on my own. It's a different time in my relationship with Christ, and it's not based on anything but my time with Him. I like it.
There are no huge discoveries as I plod along this way. Well, actually the fact that summer will be over all too soon and my time with my girls will go back to the structured way of the school year, but I've known that even if I hadn't acknowledged it. In late May I laid out a plan of what I wanted to do and when, and here we are at the end of June, approaching July 4, and I haven't even made the arrangements let alone done all my little adventures. But for right this moment, all I want to do is bask in Him. I want to enjoy my quiet house, talk to Him, and enjoy His presence, even if it's just for a few short moments.
I constantly pray for you all, and would love to hear how your summers are going!
