Right Now

  • I can’t see the top of the computer desk…totally covered in books, toys, movies, and school work.
  • I have at least five loads of laundry waiting.
  • Hubs is at prayer meeting, praying for us and others.
  • The baby monitor is off because my son can’t go to sleep unless he cries first.
  • My three daughters are reading books and going to sleep.
  • I need to replace our shower curtain.
  • I wish I could buy new curtains.
  • I’m studying Ephesians and being really, really¬†challenged by it.
  • I want to lose 15 pounds before we go on vacation for pure vanity’s sake.
  • I want a new camera so I can take better photographs.
  • I want to finish a sewing project.
  • I think we still have too many possessions and that they seem to end up possessing us.
  • I miss my best friend.
  • I feel really inadequate as a mother…mostly because so many of the moms I know seem to have “it” together, whatever “it” is!
  • I want to listen to praise music really loud and just worship.
  • I wish there was more chocolate in the house.
  • I know someone who is dying.
  • I know people who aren’t really living.
  • I want to be smaller and for God to be much, much bigger.
  • I miss my old jeans that made me feel less like a frumpy mom and more like a rockin’ mom.
  • I lack.
  • I want to be taken care of because it feels safe.
  • I also want to take care of my children so they can have the same feeling.
  • I really, really love my husband, though I could do a better job of living that out.
  • I really, really love Jesus and could also do a better job at that.
  • I am loved.
  • I am forgiven.
  • I am redeemed.
  • I am blessed.
  • And everything is right, now.

    I really need to replace our shower curtain and I would love to be able to buy new curtains….I have been thinking of learning to sew so that I can make my own, we’ll see! I want to be a better child of God, momma, and wife too…..I guess it is a process…..sometimes I take two steps back but then maybe three forward….at least it is mostly forward progress!!
