Psalm 29:11 

The Lord will give strength to His people;

The Lord will bless His people with peace.

I've been following the story of a young local girl named Lucy as she has battled cancer the past year and a half. Now my heart trembles as she is back in the hospital and it's not looking good. You can read of her plight on her mother's blog HERE. Her mother asks that in the years come people do not forget Lucy. That her suffering does not go in vain. I won't forget.

When I hear my children roughhousing, arguing, laughing...I'll remember there's a little girl who cannot do this with her siblings. I'll remember there's a mother who will not hear these sound coming from her daughter again. When my oldest son get's his driver's license, I'll remember. There's a little girl who won't go through this milestone in her life.  With my children's triumphs and failures, ups and downs...I promise to remember how fortunate I am.

Drifting Along

Here it is, well into the first week of June, and I've not accomplished a single thing since semester ended a month ago. I feel as though I've been incredibly lazy these last few weeks. My days are full of surfing the net, reading, job hunting. Nights have been baseball games and family time.

I feel as though I should of done something by now. Found a job, deep cleaned a room, painted the kitchen...something.  Well the job search is in God's hands. I have several applications out and so far two interviews, but no offers.  Job hunting is too much like fishing, you try all these different baits till something bites.  I'm not much of a fisherman. If something doesn't bite quickly I'm ready to head over to a new spot.   I know a lot of it's the economy. I remember in my late teens early twenties I could go about anywhere fill out an application and have a job that day.  Now, turn overs are a bit less so I have to search harder.  One interview sounded promising and she said she would let me know by this evening.  I interviewed with her on Friday and she wanted to call my references so I'm waiting. I have I ever mentioned I don't wait well.  I have patience, but only with certain things it seems.

Starting today I'm going to combat this drifting along thing. I'm going to make myself do something every day, whether I feel like it or not. Today's plan is run youngest son over to church to attend VBS and I'll hit the gym there for an hour or so. This afternoon I'm going to start on two rooms. The kitchen and my bedroom, both are getting deep cleaned. Sometime this week I'm going to paint the kitchen and maybe my bathroom. I have the supplies just have to get the gumption to do it.
