Here you go, Hope…

So, Hope commented on the chicken chili post and wanted to know more about what was going on in my brain and less about what I may be cooking for dinner. Here you go, my dear!

  • I can’t find costumes to fit the 20 dancers in the Jig scene of Imagine Christmas. Need….more….money…
  • I’m wondering what makes the “quiet” snow machine $600 more than the one that sounds like an airplane engine. Hmmmm….
  • I’m crazy about this baby already. My clothes don’t fit me, though (geeze, I’m only 7 weeks – good Lord!) But seriously – I am completely in love with this child. I don’t know if it’s a girl or a boy – I haven’t felt her move yet – but I just can’t help myself. <sigh>
  • I want to be a better leader – I feel like I’ve been treading water for the last year and that doesn’t make me happy. Am I inspiring anyone or just maintaining?
  • I saw two young labs killing a goose in my back yard yesterday morning – it freaked me out. I know, I know – the circle of life and all that – but all the other ducks and geese were across the street in my neighbor’s yard just staring stoically over at the carnage and I was freaking out. I yelled at them but they wouldn’t look up from their prize to even acknowledge me. Now I have a pile of scattered goose feathers all over my yard. Seriously – it freaked me out.
  • I don’t want to stress anymore.
  • I miss my friends – the ones that live here and the ones that don’t. We’re just all too busy and too tired to nurture meaningful relationships right now. Things need to change – our idea of what makes life worth it needs to change.
  • I want to enjoy God more.

So – what’s in all of your heads?

    Except the parts about the snow machine, baby and the geese, I have been feeling much the same way. I, too have been questioning my impact on others, how I stress out and miss opportunities to really appreciate the awesome people I am surrounded by. I have had a strong desire for more quality out of each day of my life.
    Let me jump on my soapbox…
    There seems to be this misuse of the word LIFE. Busy-ness and exhaustion are antithetical to what life should be. When our schedule is too tight for unplanned conversations, home cooked meals or random acts of kindness, we miss out on so many opportunities God is placing before us. When we spend a whole day without even noticing and enjoying the amazing natural world God gave us, we are not living. When text messaging and email replaces face to face interaction and we are incapable of creating a sanctuary without constant interruption, we deprive ourselves of life essentials.
    Recently I have prioritized taking time to nurture friendships that have distanced over time and begun to cultivate new ones. It has been so refreshing and so revealing to what I have missed. I am learning to take in each moment and trust that God will help me get it all done.

    Maybe I need to become a blogger so I won’t write so much on yours, but then I would have to spend more time inside, and you know I hate that.

    By the way, you inspire me and I know I’m not alone.
