Climbing Out of the Trenches....

I feel obligated to put something here, know...I've been gone forever. But it isn't as if I have anything exciting to tell you. My weekend? I made friends with this guy:

Or maybe enemies. I'm not sure which. But we definitely spent way too much time together. My head never wants to see the inside of a toilet ever again. And I still don't know what the heck was up with me. Stomach bug? Touch of food poisoning? All I know is that as long as I was lying down I would be totally fine. As soon as I would stand up, it would hit me. I've never ever been sick like that before. And needless to say, I spent a lot of time lying down. My house is a disaster now. Happy Monday to me!

In other news, I had dreams last night that it was Summertime and I spent every morning at my mom and dad's house in a pool lounging. It was glorious. The only problem is my parents don't have a pool. But I'm feeling compelled today to encourage them to know...maybe consider getting one. Hint, hint. Wink, wink. :D

And that's as exciting as it gets around here. Dreams that I have a life in another world somewhere. I have a lot of blog catching up to do today. And if I continue to feel better the girls and I are going to get out for a the first time in a few days and enjoy this day. It's daddy-less Monday, so I PRAY that I'm officially over whatever I had. Here's hoping this week is much better than last week!

I've been stuck on the ABC Blog Challenge for quite a while now. Next letter up: U - Until Now.

Until just this weekend...I never realized a very quirky aspect of my personality. It's always existed, but I just realized it and how very weird it is. This isn't a universal truth for everything, but when it comes to spiritual matters: I like getting kicked in the butt. I get a thrill out of discovering something I've believed my entire life might not be exactly as I thought. That maybe my view on something is skewed or misplaced. I think it is the greatest thing EVER to be listening to a great speaker open up scripture, read something straight from the Bible, explain it, and it make sense to me in a whole new way. 

In other words, I like it to be revealed to me when I'm WRONG. How weird is that? I got a good kick in the pants this weekend while listening to this sermon from John Piper. That's where I'm coming from today. :) I got kicked right-side up and upside-down and around the corner. That's a great message, if you ask me.

Baha, yes. It is. I noticed it after I found the picture. Shhh...I was hoping no one would notice. :D

Heather said...

LOL...I thought it was YOUR toilet!

Thank you for sharing this message. It definitely is one worth sharing!

Too many times it's so easy to become overwhelmed by the "battles" that we are faced with. THey seem like small potatoes when you think of the sacrifice that God made - and Jesus!!!

Wow. That's deep - very deep.
