So much for blogging more


So I thought since I dropped Facebook that I would blog more.  Guess I thought wrong, lol.  It’s not that I haven’t been thinking about it, I just don’t ever seem to get around to it.  And it’s not as if things haven’t been happening.  Since the last post I took a trip to Moravian Falls (by myself, looooong drive) and read a book (“Sister Aimee” about the life of Aimee Semple McPherson).  Just started The Shantung Revival (about the greatest revival in Baptist history) and have a pile of others I borrowed waiting in the wings.  I’ve been enjoying my days and continuing to adjust to having tons of free time (and it takes some adjusting, believe me).  I am enjoying my garden (but not the gnats which eat me alive when I try to work in it).  This afternoon I called a young friend who was a first-year student this past year and we had a nice chat.  Oh and this morning I took a long walk with our pastor’s wife and talked too much (~sigh~).  There are still painting and other projects at the house but I’m in no rush to do them.  They’re not going anywhere, and the last time I checked no one cared that they weren’t finished yet.

I’ve been having more and more days where I get to the end of it and I can’t list much in the what-I-did-today column and you know what?  I think that’s okay because for so long I was driven and my worth was somehow tied up in what I accomplished.  So often the question is asked, “What did you do today?” as if doing nothing means you don’t amount to much.  Don’t get me wrong, I’m not advocating a sluggard’s lifestyle, I just think perhaps the pendulum has swung a bit past center and I’m finding it hard to get motivated to do much of anything except read and contemplate life and God and so many other things.

I did purchase a ticket to Anchorage where I will meet up with my NC friend and we shall head on to Nome in a month for an adventure.  It’s been a while since we’ve been on one together, and we’re overdue.  I’m glad my husband gives me the freedom to do this kind of thing.  He’ll be taking a motorcycle adventure (though not as long) with his buddies during the same time so that worked out well.  I look forward to finding out what God has up His sleeve for us in Alaska!  Stay tuned :)
