Today I HAD to write. Life has been routine and slow--something I've been waiting forever to say! Treasure the normal days. They don't last. Anyway, I haven't felt much like writing, but I've been reading tons.
Evidently, my creative side has been on vacation since I haven't baked or cooked anything new or tricky, worked on projects, or typed my thoughts in a blog. It goes on vacation sometimes, but always comes back eventually.
I am re-re-reading John Ortberg's The Life You've Always Wanted because I am very aware that I am charting a new life stage and I want to do it right; I want to do it with joy and obedience to my Lord. I've been very slowly structuring my days--exercise five days a week and prep classes for tutoring in an Adult Literacy program. I'm making myself available to my extended family, and trying to be sensitive to the needs of our family seniors.
And, I'm still learning that it is O.K. to live life one thing at a time. Multi-tasking is an option, not a requirement.
