Life doesn’t seem to be slowing down at all. Not that I actually want it to, but I do need at some point to rearrange my priorities or something. It seems I’m always rushed or rushing, and that’s no way to live. While it’s true that I don’t sweat at much small stuff as I used to, I still have enough on my plate to keep me busy for a month! Some of it, though, doesn’t matter much in the long run. Sometimes I feel like one of those salmon swimming upstream against the current, lol.
I’d been saving for a long time so I could attend the West Chester Poetry Conference this year (I say I’m going to go every year and was determined that finances wouldn’t be in the way). But alas, it wasn’t to be. I found out a couple of weeks ago about a three-week summer intensive at Global Awakening in Mechanicsburg and have officially applied. Doesn’t mean I’ll be accepted, but this appears to be “the next thing” as things go in my desire to press in to know the Lord. And it’s definitely outside of my comfort zone…although saying that I wonder, should a Christian even have a comfort zone? Anyway, it’s done, it’s in the mail, and I shall miss the conference…again. Methinks this summer intensive will be a life-changer though, and that’s what I’m after.
Anyway yesterday was Mother’s Day. The service was good at church, weather was great, spent some metal detecting (which I haven’t done in a long time) and then the kids came over. They gave me some flowers and a nice card. I just enjoy having them around! In just a few short months I’ll be a grandma and my life will REALLY change then! Can’t believe I’m that old, lol.
