FOR TODAY September 23, 2013
Outside my window… dark. It’s 2:15 a.m.
I am thinking… about my next move on Words With Friends. (I’m writing this in between ads.)
I am thankful… that Thomas’ sons have been able to stay in utero for another week and am praying they can stay in utero for longer.
In the kitchen… dishes to do.
I am wearing… my black “Governator” shirt (I am Californian after all!) and black running shorts.
I am creating… the bare bones of blog posts.
I am going… to hope I can get myself organized for the week tomorrow morning (well… technically today).
I am wondering… when Daniel’s hitting and head-butting will stop. I’m still surprised he didn’t knock out one of my front teeth on Saturday.
I am reading… Sundays in America by Suzanne Strempek Shea. I’m hoping to finish it this week so I can move on to Pastorix by Nadia Bolz-Weber.
I am hoping… for a quieter week.
I am looking forward to… all premieres of all my favorite shows.
I am pondering… waaaaaaay too many things.
A favorite quote for today… “The risk in seeking and finding God in all things, then, is the willingness to explain too much, to say with human certainty and arrogance: ??God is here.?? We will find only a god that fits our measure. The correct attitude is that of St. Augustine: seek God to find him, and find God to keep searching for God forever. Often we seek as if we were blind, as one often reads in the Bible. And this is the experience of the great fathers of the faith, who are our models. We have to re-read the Letter to the Hebrews, Chapter 11. Abraham leaves his home without knowing where he was going, by faith. All of our ancestors in the faith died seeing the good that was promised, but from a distance…. Our life is not given to us like an opera libretto, in which all is written down; but it means going, walking, doing, searching, seeing…. We must enter into the adventure of the quest for meeting God; we must let God search and encounter us.” — Pope Francis in his interview in America Magazine.
One of my favorite things… iced vanilla whole milk lattés.
A few plans for the rest of the week: ABA therapy for Daniel on Monday/Wednesday/Friday, getting Daniel a flu shot on Tuesday, fighting with SSI on Wednesday, and hopefully not much else.
