Wow–I’ve really missed you guys. I knew y’all (been doin’ the Beth Moore thing on Thursdays) were beautiful and special to me, but I didn’t expect to start aching from missing you. Has it really only been 5 days?? I’m not sure yet if I’m just on here for tonight and then come back again next Friday, or if I’ll be sticking around. I’ve definitely gotten more work done w/o xanga…
The reason I logged on was to ask you to pray for me. I finished the sample chapter for my next book–HUGE praise! Now, I just have to finish the 12 chapter summaries for my proposal (about 1/2 page each). But I’m stuck. I can’t think of a single thing to write. And I’m tired. And Satan is messing with my mind. (Don’t write this book. It’s stupid.) It’s NOT stupid–it’s a book about God, God, God, and the devil just isn’t taking it well. And Nina has been throwing up and having diarrhea all day. The poor little darling looks so skinny to me.
And I found out that I’m doing a tv interview Tuesday night in Indy (my first ever), and I have NOTHING to wear. If you know me personally, you know that I own 2 pairs of jeans, 2 VT t-shirts, a God’s Mac t-shirt, a VT hoody, 2 black long-sleeved tees, and 2 black sweaters. That’s it. Bethany tried to help me find an outfit Monday, but Nina was getting a cold and was miserable. I bought a bag. A new friend cut and highlighted my hair tonight, so that feels good. I have some bangs which never last, because I can’t stand how they feel on my forehead. I’m determined to keep them this time around.
So, if you could just pray that I’ll get my writing done, that it will be done well, that I’ll get sleep, that Nina will get better, and that I’ll be filled with calm and peace during my stay in Indianapolis, I would be sooooo grateful.
I caught up a little on some of your blogs. You are so precious. I truly thank God for you–the ones I’ve known forever, the ones I’ve just met, and the ones I will meet someday.
And I was tickled pink to read that my sisters need me. One of them said it just wasn’t the same with the two of them. They needed all three of us. Yes, I know this is only xanga, and I was only MIA for 5 days, but I was completely touched. I felt like bawling as I thought of how blessed I am. And how God gave me three daughters of my own. My hope and prayer is that they will always love each other as much as my sisters and I do.
Thank you to those who e-mailed me prayer requests–I’m honored to be able to pray for you, and I need the reminder. Love you, guys!
