I have a bunch of last minute stuff to get done tonight and tomorrow but I figured I’d better get a post in now because I might not be around much for a while.
Saturday I’m going to a my childhood bff’s house for her son’s birthday party, I’m meeting another long time friend there, and bringing his son Sean home with me for a few days … we’ve left the pickup date open-ended, in case I get too tired to keep him so long, but if all goes well they’ll pick him up next Friday.
I’m really excited to have a little visitor. Many of my nieces and nephews usually get to spend time here during the summer and for whatever reason it didn’t work out for any of them to come this year. A munchkin in the house always brightens my spirits a bit, and will help fill the interminable wait before I go to pickup my best friend/brother on the 14th.
I know I’ve said this a dozen times on here already, but I’m SO excited to see my brother, he’ll be visiting for 5 weeks!! I’m sure those 5 weeks will go by as fast as the past few months of waiting have gone slow… but I’m hoping we’ll get plenty of time to visit and rest up and just enjoy each other’s company.
Anywho, I don’t imagine I’ll be posting much while the munchkin is here, and I’m not sure if I’ll be online much while my brother’s here or not, so I figured I’d post a quick update before hand. I hope you’ve all been having a great summer!
Talk about a lull… I had company this weekend and then got sick, and then got busy trying to get caught up, and I nearly forgot all about the blog and reading. I will start on Exodus first thing in the morning.
Yay! I just finished reading through Revelation, and get to start on the Old Testament now. Lots of reading ahead, but I have much more interest in history these days than I ever used to so it should be pretty fun.
I’ve decided to hold the rest of my thoughts on Revelation for later, as it’s way too involved to skim past.
I was supposed to have spent my evening tonight helping at VBS… I reminded myself of this several times yesterday, then still completely forgot about it today… at 2:30am I finally realized what day it was…
So a few hours ago I was sitting there stewing about how worthless I am, when it dawned on me that if I were actually worthless, Christ wouldn’t have bothered dying for me, but since He did, and since He’s perfect and all, it must be that I’m just not living up to the potential He saw in me.
So… in an effort to get myself back on a more useful track, I am going to make a concerted effort to stop rambling about pointless things, and use this blog as a tool instead.
If you’re actually reading this, and this subject annoys you, this might be a good time to switch over to http://storyblox.livejournal.com, which is my business blog, as this blog will probably be filled other things that will annoy you in the future.
If you’re reading this, and you aren’t severely annoyed by now, drop me a note and let me know :)
I will be making an effort to post on a daily basis (or close to it) from here on out… and I will make it a goal to “set my thoughts on things above” in each post.
