Day 16

I haven't been finding the time to write, and I'm missing it.  Flannery O'Connor said, "I write because I don't know what I think until I read what I say."  I honestly think this is somewhat true of me.  I process better when I talk...or write...about what I'm thinking.  And it flat out keeps me accountable, particularly when I'm writing in a public place like this.

But...I'm going to the beach tomorrow.  Taking the children, without Jim (it's a very busy time of year for him at work), just for a few days.  I'm really, really looking forward to spending some concentrated time with them away from school work and housework.

For anyone who reads this, I am just going to come right out and ask you to pray for me.  As soon as you finish reading this paragraph.  Pray the the Lord will bless our trip, and continue His work in my heart and with my tongue.  I need the prayers....I need the help.  And I always need more of Him.



  1. Praying for you. Springtime at the beach has always been a favorite destination of ours. I've been loving your series. Are you my ghostwriter? Eerie how similar our stories are. You've made me think more critically of my daily interactions with my girls and hubby. It's so hard being a natural born type A. Enjoy the sun, sand, and surf! Don't sweat the small stuff.

  2. Thanks for the encouragement, Sarah! And for your prayers. :)

  3. Looking forward to lunch and catching up- these posts will not come up in conversation, but know I have been where you are, just I was much older. Blessings as you seek His face to reflect in yours. Penny
