'TIS ANOTHER RANDOM POST.

*MY BABY TURNED FOUR. HE’S GROUNDED NOW. HE ASKED ME IN CHURCH SUNDAY MORNING, “MOMMA, AM I FOUR NOW?”……..”YES, BABY, YOU ARE!”……HE LOOKED DOWN AT HIS LEGS AND HIS FEET AND QUICKLY LOOKED UP AT ME AND SAID, “BUT MOMMA, I’M NOT BIGGER, I DON’T SEE THAT I’M ANY BIGGER.”……”MOMMY SEES IT, YOU ARE…” DANGIT. THIS GROWING UP THING CAN JUST RIP A MOMMA’S HEART RIGHT OUT.

*WHY DON’T THEY MAKE PRETTY BRAS FOR WOMEN WHO WEAR MORE THAN A *CERTAIN* CUP SIZE? THAT ERKS ME TO NO END!!! I MAY NOT BE IN A SMALL CUP, BUT I STILL WANT A CUTE OVER-THE-SHOULDER-BOULDER-HOLDER…..

*I’M SO TIRED OF THE LACK OF EXPECTATION THAT RULES THE BODY OF CHRIST…THERE’S THE MINDSET OF “WELL, YOU’RE GONNA MESS UP, DO IT ANYWAY, GOD WILL FORGIVE YOU….”…..AND IT TOTALLY CHEAPENS THE GRACE THAT HE OFFERS US….IT SEEMS TO ME THAT SO OFTEN HIS OWN CHILDREN ARE MOCKING WHAT HE DID FOR EVERYONE THAT DAY ON THE CROSS.

*CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS ARE EVERYWHERE…AND IT’S NOT EVEN OCTOBER YET. LAST YEAR I WAS VERY EAGER FOR DECORATING…..THIS YEAR IS A WHOLE NEW SET OF CIRCUMSTANCES.

*EVER FELT LIKE LIFE WAS JUST BEATING THE CRAP OUT OF YOU? FOR MORE THAN A DAY, A WEEK, A MONTH….FOR QUITE SOME TIME? WELCOME TO THE CLUB. YOU’RE IN GOOD COMPANY. DON’T TAKE TO HEART WHAT SOME PEOPLE MAY SAY TO YOU….PUTTING A HAPPY FACE ON DESPERATE CIRCUMSTANCES DOESN’T FIX LIFE…….JESUS HIMSELF DIDN’T TAKE THAT APPROACH WITH PEOPLE!! DON’T LET WHAT OTHERS SAY DISCOURAGE YOU. READ THE SCRIPTURES…..CRYING OUT TO GOD IN DISTRESS,QUESTIONING WHERE HE IS, FEELING ABANDONED, LONELY, HOPELESS….IT’S ALL THROUGHOUT THE VERY BOOK HE GAVE US. KEEP HOPE IN HIM………..HE’S THE ONLY ONE WHO WILL LISTEN WITHOUT MOCKING WHAT YOU’RE GOING THROUGH. MARANATHA.

*AGAIN, TO A LIGHTER SUBJECT…….MY SWEET, HANDSOME HUSBAND BOUGHT ME THE MOST ADORABLE LIL’ JEAN JACKET. I CAN’T WAIT FOR IT TO GET COLD SO I CAN WEAR IT. IT’S A LONG JEAN COAT, COMES ABOUT TO MY KNEES, AND HAS TWO BIG BUTTONS RIGHT AT THE FRONT AT THE WAISTLINE. ADORABLE. HE LIKES TO BUY ME THINGS…..I LIKE TO RECEIVE THOSE THINGS. ;)

*I’VE BEEN READING THE MOST AMAZING BOOK, IF YOU’RE LOOKING FOR A GOOD READ, IT’S CALLED “THE YEAR OF LIVING BIBLICALLY; ONE MAN’S HUMBLE QUEST TO FOLLOW THE BIBLE AS LITERALLY AS POSSIBLE” BY A.J. JACOBS. IT’S A FASCINATING READ.

*SOMEONE WHO WRITES ON THIS BLOG HAS A BIRTHDAY SOON…….IF YOU CAN GUESS HOW OLD I WILL BE, YOU WILL GET A PRIZE. BUT I’M NOT SURE WHAT THAT PRIZE IS……….OR IF YOU’LL GET IT…….MAYBE THIS IS JUST A SHAMELESS PLOY TO GET SOME COMMENT LOVE. : ) YOU KNOW YOU, TOO, LOVE A COMMENT!
