Brett didn’t get the job. We’re going to have to make some big changes. I will share later, I’m sure. Right now we’re not sure what we’re going to do, so it’s not time to share.
Do you ever feel like you’re whispering into an abyss? I’ve made plans for my blog for the whole year, but I don’t know how to get people to read it. If my readership continues the way it is, I may table it for the time being. I’d post about it on Facebook (even though it’s difficult because I usually post from work), but with the constancy my friends show of responding to my status updates, I’m pretty sure it won’t help much.
I got the Catholic Workout DVD on Friday and finally tried it out on Wednesday. My thighs are so sore! I like that this video is quiet and meditative. There is (obviously) hard exercise, but no jumping or shouting. It is so refreshing to exercise in quiet and prayer.
I’m hoping to finish The Grail Code this weekend so I can write about it next week. I’m loving it, but it’s been a little slow going for reasons I can’t quite pin down.
We’ve been watching Little House on the Prairie on the DVR. It is so gentle and funny without being coarse or rude. While I don’t necessarily watch lots of hour-long family dramas, I wish that TV today had more shows that were less rude, and things that families could watch together and all enjoy. It seems that if shows aren’t lewd and suggestive, and if they are meant for children, they are over-the-top silly. And really, even the shows meant for children have plenty of bathroom humor and innuendo thrown in. Enough!
I have only two payments left on my car! How exciting is that? I can’t believe I have had it for so long! There are a lot of other debts in my life I wish I only had two payments left on.
How do you tell people God loves them without being sentimental or preachy? I can talk a lot about the truth and fact of religion, but I think the most important thing is that God loves us and wants us to love Him. I truly believe that if we love him, we’ll want to follow his commands and take them to our hearts. Love is such a sentimental idea in secular culture. How do we show people its power and depth?
Have a lovely weekend. God loves you!
