Wintertime is my least favorite time of year. I do not like being cold. I do not like the barren look. I do not like the gray overcast to everything. Right now I want to hibernate, then I get cabin fever. I am fine once I get going, it's the get up and go, that hangs up. I fight it it very hard during the winter time, but sometimes it feels as if my mind is in a fog that won't lift. But yet my mind is constantly whirling with ideas and thoughts. Honestly, I remind myself of Goldilocks- I want everything JUST RIGHT! Of course, who doesn't? I could use some sun, surf and sand therapy right now. Maybe, that is what Jimmy and I should do every February, hit the beach to break up the doldrums of winter. I am so ready for spring and summer. That is my time!!
Jimmy and I are still reading the chronological bible together. The old testament is really hard to follow. When I was a young woman, much younger in my 20's, I used to pray for Job's patience, never realizing the full extent of his suffering. And I dang sure don't want God to just let satan loose on me. Now I am in the late season of 30 and I pray for Love, wisdom, God's will, guidance and strength.
Currently, I am reading Crazy Love by Francis Chan. I have made it to chapter 6 and am at the point that I need to slow down and reread to let the lesson speak to me.
Monday night, Jimmy took me and the kids to Longhorn Steakhouse. We had an excellent time together and a great meal. I had lunch today with my best bud, Tammy at Olive Garden in Knoxville. We had a great time. This weekend I am anticipating my oldest daughter coming home for a visit. Life is good, God has blessed me well.
