Still in a Slump
Ahhhh....will my kitchen ever be clean again? I just get close and then it's messy again! It seemed so easy when I was in the groove. I thought to myself, "Why has this been so hard?" But I forget how hard everything is when I'm tired and on the depressed side.
Had the most wonderful little God-time today. Got home from a meeting and both kids were asleep. Put the seat back in the car, kept the tunes going and just had a bit of a breather. Sweet!
Jacob's doing great without his diapers. We're learning together a few things to avoid and otherwise are having great success! He's still quite freaked out by sounds in particular and currently struggles with fears of storms, wind, thunder etc. Unfortunately, some of his Bob the Builder episodes seem to build on this.
Had a great prayer time with a friend. Two things really stuck out that she prayed for: for the beauty of the Lord in my encounters with Him to overflow into my home, life, kids and husband, and for stillness (Be still and know that I am God).
Listened to Steve Bell's audio magazine on "Can God be Trusted" today. Some powerful stories. What most stood out for me was what a Jewish theologian was quoted as saying: that we have translated God's name "I am who I am" in a distorted way and that the Hebrew was saying something more like "I shall be there". So no matter what happens in our lives, God's name is "I shall be there". I like that. God shall be there and that shall be enough.
