I just made my first-ever facebook photo album. I’m unabashedly proud of myself. You must understand. I don’t even know how to put photos on my blog. Not the normal way, anyway. I copy all this Flickr code (per Gabe’s instructions) and stuff.
Blogging tonight, because Thursday mornings are Bible study (and a bit hectic). It’s our last meeting until January-ish. How sad. I think I may buy another study to do on my own until then. Except that it’s not in the budget. I have a better idea. I’ll go back through one of the ones I’ve already done. Maybe Daniel.
I got a phone call from an old friend today. (Hi, old friend!) She wanted to let me know that she’s reading Blushing and working through some stuff in her marriage. I was touched that she shared that with me and promised to pray for her. Marriages are really important to me, and I’m so grateful God has allowed me the huge honor of helping some women in this area. (Blushing is on sale for $5 on my site for a bit, if you’re interested.)
I got some little tidbits of encouragement today–and an e-mail from a favorite author. It’s funny, but just when I was finishing up my Bible study and thinking, “Wow, God, I just want to know you so deeply. I don’t want anything else to matter,” then He throws some human encouragement my way. When I start to get dependent on kudos/praise/whatever from others, I get all bummed when it’s not there. But when my focus is truly on Christ, He brings little stuff across my path to make me smile. And it’s cool when I can just take it for what it is but not depend on it.
Did that make sense?
Sooooo…the potty-training excitement seems to have fizzled out. Hmm. I don’t suppose she’ll tell her Bible study teacher tomorrow that she has to go potty. That’s what pull-ups/diapers are for, right?
Praying for some of you tonight–especially those I haven’t heard from in awhile. Hope everything’s okay!
Gabe’s uncle Jeff had over 120 stitches put in his face. Please pray for quick and complete healing!
I’m getting random. Off to bed I go. Have a sweet Thursday!
