It’s Monday and I am already running late this week. Not a good way to start the week, but I had no sleep last night. I stayed in bed this morning and listened to the (two) darlings getting up, showering, talking to our animals (and hearing the animals talk back, lol), getting dressed, feeding themselves and animals. Up and down the stairs. Humming, singing, texting. Really, it is my favorite way to start the morning. They are so self-sufficient now. Sad, but also nice. So, I’m running behind because I didn’t get up and get my quiet time in before the monkeys got up. They are both off to school now. I’m listening to some Travis on iTunes, filling out forms for My Girl to play in a low-key volleyball club this season, thinking about the week, missing my oldest child, missing my bff, Jill.
Since I couldn’t even call to mind the scripture I was supposed to have memorized last week, I am keeping the same scripture this week to actually memorize this week.
Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.
It is funny…even though I didn’t actually memorize this scripture last week, I guess I glanced at it enough for some of it to sink in. I felt much more patient and kind and humble last week and certainly feel that way this morning. I love that His word is never wasted. Even when I am distracted.
I cannot believe the Christmas Season has come and gone so quickly. The Boy has been home and gone. I don’t even know his class schedule or if his books have been shipped to him yet. It was a crazy month! He has misplaced his iTouch. Our house is still upside down from painting (trim still not done) and Christmas. It will turn up, but meanwhile, I know he is missing it.
Esther begins tonight and I can’t wait! I’m facilitating. But I don’t really do anything. Bethie does it all. I plan to share with y’all some of my own insights from this study. I know that JillEllen is doing it too and we want to stay connected now that our 90 Days with the One and Only study is over. After Esther, we are going to do the 90 Days with a Heart Like His (David).
Okay, gotta get moving here. Quiet time, journalling, and another look at Esther is calling me!
Love you guys.
