Tonight is going to be full-on honesty time.
I've no doubt that I'll wake in the am and rush to my computer to re-read what I'm about to write, in fear that I've let myself go way too far...
But until the light of day shines, I'm going to write like a crazy woman.
I do hope you'll oblige me.
You know, writers who craft their prose in the dark of night, hunger for those comments to show up when the sun breaks over the horizon. :) My fairly lame literary attempt to beg you to converse with me.
So here's the truth of the matter. We know that the devil is alive and well, and on a rip-roar all the time. The Bible says that he comes to kill, steal, and destroy.
That's his mission.
Hmm.....aren't we pretty stupid if we live thinking, "You know, I'm just not going to think about him."
That terrifies him when we ignore him.
I don't think so.
I want you to know that I am just about convinced that he or one of his fallen angels, lives in the desert.
OK, so maybe I'm half kidding.
I tell you, we went to TN for a week, which turned into a week and 1/2 due to the snow that shut down the Atlanta airport. While we were there, I felt SUPER! I mean....great! I had 2 days that were tough, but on scale of comparison to being in AZ, I really was wonderful.
We get back to AZ and we're here all of 12 hours, and I begin to T-A-N-K.
It's so hard, you know. I LOVE my friends here in AZ. They are the best I've ever had...truly, wonderful friends.
Yet, I know that if I don't get out of the desert, I'm not soon going to get better.
I love Tennessee. It's beautiful, and our new home is a dream come true. I'm blown away by it, and by God's grace to save it just for us.
My dream, my heart prayer for a home was to have space where guests could come to stay, and have their own private bath and personal area in the basement.
That's exactly what God gave us, too! It's perfect for friends, or Precept leaders who want to come in for an event but can't afford a hotel. It's just PERFECT!
I truly love the house. I pray it will be a great blessing to many.
I pray that Ms. Shelly will be my first guest! I need to give that girl a hug!
Thanks for listening.
We'll be off of me tomorrow.
For today, I'm just struggling with my hatred of MS.
I do hate it, yet I gotta get past that, as God is using it to His glory....so I need to quit whining.
As I said, I'm ranting tonight....so I'm not going back to proof read, or I'll likely delete the whole post.
I'm going to learn to sew.
Brennan and Caedmon are going to take horseback riding lessons in TN.
We're joining the YMCA. Oh, to be able to swim in the cold months!
I'm going to write more often.
Love ya'll tonight!
