I’m struggling at the moment with a handful of situations/events/whatever that have been on the humbling side, to put it mildly. I’m not at a place where I can/want to really discuss any of it yet. Maybe I’ll write a book about it someday. In a nutshell, God has used a handful of people in my life lately as instruments in this refining process. He’s showing me things about myself I don’t really like. At the same time, He’s showing me that I am a holy vessel. I am having quite a time reconciling those two. I am wormy/crappy/stinky vs. I am holy/clean/consecrated.
Anyway, I didn’t intend to spend a whole paragraph talking about myself. The title “no me” was supposed to mean that I was only going to talk about other people in this blog…
Courtney–my dear friend from our old town who came to visit me today. We had fun catching up, and she has been such a good friend since I met her almost 3 years ago. Happy Belated b-day, girl!
J.–Congrats on finishing your first research paper! You go, girl!
Jamie–and I were both born on Halloween, one year apart. We have never met in real life, only on xanga, but we are going to get together for our birthdays this year. How fun is that?
Beth Moore–God is really using her “Daniel” study to teach me some uncomfortable things. I love it. A Bible study that doesn’t convict me seems kind of pointless. One of these weeks, though, I’m hoping she’ll say something that doesn’t apply to me. Surely I must be doing something right. 🙂
Kristen–my pregnant friend who is very ill. Please pray for some relief for her nausea.
DVQ 3905–license plate of two punks in a Buick (?) who went squealing/flying through our neighborhood while a bunch of kindergarteners, some moms, and some little siblings were waiting for the bus the other day. I’ll tell the story next time. If you want to file a complaint, feel free. 🙂
My grandma (not the one who sent my blog print-out to my aunt who has internet access :))–is having a 4-hour surgery tomorrow at 11:00. Please pray that all will go well.
I just spent the last 4 minutes staring at the screen with my eyes glazed over–better hit the hay! Happy Friday the 13th!
