a weekend retreat PART I
Okay. I think I just realized a few hours ago that it was Thursday night. Friday is almost here, and then, THE WEEKEND!!! The realization that I haven’t put anything up here in a long while also struck me… and then I was facebooked a message that reminded me that I haven’t been blogging in a while.
I have good reasons, really I do.
First, I’ve been thinking a lot. I went to a retreat last weekend (Friday night to Saturday afternoon) with a group of ladies from my church. It was amazing. The fun, the fellowship… meeting new people, the singing, the speaker. It was all great. I can’t possibly talk about all of it in one entry… and at this point, I’m still digesting and thinking about everything that happened, and the changes I’ve made as a result. Needless to say (or maybe it is needed) the speaker was great, but the more powerful words were from the Holy Spirit convicting me of some things in my life that needed adjusting. Not that I haven’t been aware of them off and on, but for the first time I listened, and became aware of what they could turn in to if left unchecked years down the road. It was a little scary to think about what one little bad habit could become…
I know I sound a little cryptic and mysterious… but really, that whole issue will have to be another day. Maybe tomorrow when I’m not so tired!
Then, also on my mind has been a lot of familial issues. I’ve been really grappling with some thoughts and dealing with breaking lifelong habits about what I believe about people. It’s hard. Really hard. I found out some things this week that confuse me, and that make me sad, and that make me angry. This I might write about later too, but probably not for everyone to see, maybe not anyone. We’ll see.
So, that’s it. That’s my reason for silence.
On a more “every day” note:
* Rachel is doing very well with potty training!
* Eli is becoming quite a little stinker! He is totally into destruction, but he’s so stinkin’ cute, ah… it’s hard to discipline him!
* My 5k training is going pretty well! I can run almost the whole thing now! I’m hoping that next week when I run I can do the whole thing. Matt and I want to run one together… now I guess I need to start looking for one to run in! 🙂
Aaaaand, that’s it. I’m tired. I’m going to bed now.
