I haven't felt like blogging lately...I love reading everyone elses, and check them all obsessively....haven't even been a big commenter lately. Thought of a few random thoughts to blog today, so here they are. A couple blog friends shared some things lately, that I will expand on. (will someone PLEASE tell me how to successfully add a word with the link on it??!! I can never do it right, so won't even attempt here) Anyway, Kelli did a WHY blog yesterday. Here is mine: Why are my kids inside watching tv when it is sooooo gorgeous out today, in the 70's. And they have been outside playing every day in the heat and humidity, go figure! Why is it EVERY time I sit down to blog, my kids huddle around me??? Like right now!!! Why, does B whine about everything lately???? Like right now! Why, when I work nights and try to sleep the next day, the phone rings off the hook, and the door bell rings (which it never does,usually)? Why, once I start blogging something, do I hate what I am typing and want to erase the whole entry? Like right now!!
On to more amazing things... My friend Becke blogged a few days ago about asking the Lord to Delight us. I did this last night as I took Dewey out to go potty. It was pitch black out, and asked Him to delight me....I looked up at the stars, waiting for something magical to appear...nothing...then my eye went to an extra bright star, and I thought oh, that must be it, thank you Lord, how pretty.....but no, I looked to the tree right next to that shining star, and was amazed to see about a dozen fireflies twinkling like Christmas lights in that tree! I have never seen such a sight. It taught me to look more closely at everything He has created for our enjoyment. How often I simply let the dog out, and just ignore all the beauty around me. I plan on asking God to delight me often, and hope you do the same!!
