For Today: Sunday, April 7, 2015
Outside my window … It was actually raining for most of the morning. Too bad it won’t make a dent in California’s drought. We need consistent gentle rains. I wonder if we will ever see them again. I am thinking what will happen when my son comes back next week. I will continue to have him pack up his room and look for work, but the more he is gone, the more I know that he really needs to be out of the house. I was able to find a temporary solution for him to be out of the house, but I just don’t know where he should go after that. My Pastor and I agree that he is too innocent minded and impressionable to be released to the streets in this town, which is rife with gangs and drugs. So what do I do? If you read this, perhaps you can join me in prayer about it.
I am thankful God’s provisions every day. I am thankful for a church that challenges me to seek healing and growth every day. Holding me accountable and encouraging me to stick with it, applauding my efforts and supporting me.
In the kitchen a complete disaster area. Dished are getting done, but the countertops and kitchen table are filling up. I can’t imagine why I can relate to http://www.aslobcomesclean.com/ so much. The worst part is, my husband and kids are home all week on Resurrection break and do they clean anything??? NOPE! I am working hard 7:30 – 4pm and then running errands after work. I come home and it is the same old mess, sometimes worse. *Sigh* This was supposed to be about the kitchen huh? Well, it is basically the same thing.
I am reading Chest of Souls, by Michelle Erickson and Daekazu. It is the first in a series, but it was free and apparently it won an award. I love reading free Amazon books so I can see if the rest of the series is something I would like or not. I am looking forward to Friday because it is pay day. I am at a 5% oil life, ¼ of a tank of gas, running out of food in the fridge and freezer, car registration on the 15th and I have $13.00 in the bank. I am FREAKING out. Nothing new since Obamacare is costing me an extra $182.00 a month I couldn’t afford.
I am learning to give my worries over to God. I don’t even know how to do that. Oh, we can say the words and say the prayer, but for me, I have to tell Him to take them, no matter what I say or do. It takes my stupid free will out of it and allows Him to do what He needs to for me to be ok.
Around the house… Well, I probably don’t need to get into that rant again. I already vented in the “kitchen” area question. Sorry about that.
A favorite quote for today… I don’t really pay attention to quotes, although I like everyone else’s. Can I just borrow everyone else’s quotes?
One of my favorite things… Online video games. I am hooked. Honestly, I am fine without it until I get started on one. Then I am stuck there for hours doing quest after quest. I like completing quests. A few plans for the rest of the week: Church tomorrow evening after work. Work on Thursday, work on Friday and then the weekend!
A peek into my day…
Almost 4 years married and working on this crazy thing called marriage.
