Sitting...at my dining room table
Loving...the sunshine and the blue skies
Wanting...to sit on the porch but it's still just a little too cool at the moment. Later, perhaps.
Enjoyed...a "vacation" day yesterday. We all need a day off now and then, don't you agree? My "vacation" included, among other things, an episode of Masterpiece Theater, lunch out with my husband, laundry (always and forever laundry) and several chapters of a mystery novel.
Reveling...with my guys in Duke's victory last night. It was a late night, even for those of us on vacation, an intense night (close game!), but a lot of fun in the end to share the joy of victory!
Thinking...about correct interpretation and application of Scripture and how one arrives at both, something that has been brought to the forefront of my ponderings and wonderings through a variety of means and circumstances. It's something I'm wanting to think through more thoroughly and hopefully write some about what the Lord is teaching me. A couple of things I've found instructive: Let the Reader Understand, a book on hermeneutics (only two chapters in but so far so good, not to mention deep and challenging), this post at Southern Baptist Girl and this post at The Upward Call. Hopefully more to come on this subject...
Anticipating...our end-of-Bible-study celebration in the morning! Really, it's not the end of Bible study, only the end of that particular study on Holiness. Next week we will begin a study of 1 John. Anticipating that too!
Considering...something a little different this summer for the ladies at my church: a bookclub! I've never done a real, live, non-internet bookclub. Any pointers? I hope it will be fun; I think it will!
Realizing...all over again that parenting is hard. I mean, it's not like I forgot it was so (indeed, who can?) but rather that a fresh sense of being overwhelmed and weary and helpless has washed over me and again I want to run and hide from the hard-ness of it all.
Thankful...and grateful and humbled and amazed and speechless when I consider the death and resurrection of my Lord Jesus and the redemption and forgiveness and mercy His sacrifice purchased for me. Our Easter celebration was full of the usual: good food, good friends, candy, and, yes, chocolate chip pies. I pray it too was full of the unusual, the divine: worship and wonder and the Word of truth, the gospel. He is risen! Glory to God, He is risen indeed!
