FOR TODAY March 24, 2014
Outside my window… dark. I’m writing this at midnight. I think it’s supposed to be 80F tomorrow. (Before you Midwesterners and East Coast peeps tar and feather me, I’d like to point out that we’re having severe drought conditions in California because all those storms you had completely missed us.)
I am thinking… about my talk for the Promise Walk for Preeclampsia.
I am thankful… for a fun time at Miwok Park in Elk Grove with Daniel.
In the kitchen… dishes to do. I just had some vanilla-flavored Greek yogurt.
I am praying for… Katie, discernment about some things in my personal life, for Daniel to develop speech, and for the grace to get through this week.
I am going… to hopefully fall asleep soon.
I am wondering… where the heck the parents were of the toddler who was aimlessly wandering around the playground when we were there with Daniel.
I am reading… Jesus: A Pilgrimage by James Martin, S.J. and I’m also reading A Season for the Spirit by Fr. Martin Smith as my Lenten discipline.
I am hoping… to get all my errands done tomorrow morning.
I am looking forward to… seeing my evil twin on Saturday. I haven’t seen him since Thanksgiving because he moved up to Washington with his wife.
I am hearing “Build Your Kingdom Here” by Rend Collective. I heard it on KLOVE today and fell in love with it.
Around the house… the Roomba finished vacuuming an hour ago.
I am pondering… too many things in my head.
A favorite quote for today… “In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans. And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God.” — Romans 8:26-27 (I was quoting it to a friend as a way of explaining how to pray in the midst of a spiritual desert.
One of my favorite things… silly house panthers with glowing eyes.
A few plans for the rest of the week: errands on Monday, Daniel’s audiologist appointment on Wednesday, WIC and a meeting with one of Jon’s colleagues on Thursday, massage on Friday, and seeing my family on Saturday.
A peek into my day… An wedding picture as yesterday was my 12th wedding anniversary.
Back (L-R): my dad, my mom, my grandfather, and my evil twin.
Front (L-R): my grandma, me, and Jon
