Holy Cow (and other mysteries)

Bev - yes, we are almost out for the holidays!!! Can you believe we've made it through our first semester!?!?!? :0)

WOW. Things are crazy as ususal. I hope to sit down and write ALOT over the holidays... we'll see if that happens or not. I love my kids at school. They are SOOOOOO awesome - it's the adults that are hard to deal with.

Speaking of kids, everyone and I mean EVERYONE has been asking us when we're going to have children... are you kidding!?!?! Mark's brother Toby even asked the other day.... good gravy people.

I love our new house and the dogs AND MOST especially - MY HUSBAND. He's fabulous. It's really kind of funny because I've never met anyone who makes me laugh like he does, who I feel myself around, who I can cry with, and who makes me SOOOOOO stinkin' mad. :0) It's great. I didn't know you could be so mad a someone and then make up and everything be o.k. (O.k., so I may be alittle strange, so sue me.)

I've posted some pics (because pictures really do say 1,000) words). We took our dynamic duo (i.e. the dogs) with us to my greatgrandmother's house at Thanksgiving. They stayed with us at the hotel in town. I had laryngitis for a week (I've NEVER had that before, it was so weird) and then got SICK as a dog off the medicine they gave me (NO MORE HYDROCODONE FOR ME). Anyhoo, we had a good road trip regardless and the dogs were great. They sat in their seatbelts like champs. Yes, we bought seat belts. I have visions of 50 pound dogs flying through us and the front wind shield in the event of a wreck... so seatbelts it was.

I seem to be struggling with a lot of stuff lately. Mostly churchy type things. I love doing children's worship with our church on Sunday... but other than that I just feel kind of pointless and unfamiliar. I know now why people don't convert easily. It's like being in another country - even when you do believe the same things.

Well, I love you guys (even though I'm terrible at keeping this up lately... I never seem to have much time for myself and when I do have time I crash.) Hope everything is going well for everyone. We're going to walk the dogs so I'll check everyone's blog later on...

Well, pics won't post so I'll try again later.

I was thrilled to click over and see you had posted too. Hang in there girl. Christmas break is just ahead! As for that church stuff - I know how you feel. Sometimes I sit there and think "Is this all there is?" And then I remember Him and that it's all about HIM and try to make that connection in my heart again in some way despite what's going on around me. Then I try to take that with me when I walk out the door. Because personally I don't believe that's all there is and I think God must get really upset when we think that part is as important as we tend to think it is. I rather think He would like us to move out, hit the streets, grocery store, video rental place, bank, post office, schools, businesses, etc. with His love oozin' on out of us. No talk, just action. All that religious jargon makes me crazy. What ARE we talking about anyway? sorry. love ya.

Happy - it IS the greatest mystery (next to God's love, that is)

Discom - we still need to get together!

anon - thanks, don't need any soma, I work in SPED. :0)

Beef - yes, yes he would be proud... that's terrible!

Candy - Well, good! I'm not crazy and alone!!!!! Sometimes I get so overwhelmed with the thought of it all, it disgusts me and I nearly get depressed over it. How terrible. THANK YOU for your post, it has been a MAJOR encouragement today!!! Much love sister! ;0)

church stuff..honey..I hear you on this one..I'M FED UP!!!!

I agree with Candy...and you know who He wants you to reach out to may just be right under your nose..

RAAAAAAM - Good to know you're alive.

I'm sick of the church stuff COMPLETELY. I'm just about finished saying what nobody seems to be willing to listen to - LIVE the gospel, people!!! It just seems to me that Nitsche was not as far off as we like to think he was. Religion (and church, and Bible study, and all that goes along with it) IS an opiate for many. It's a drug that numbs us from having to deal with the very people in our "families" that need love, compassion and support.

I agree that church seems pointless and unfamiliar. God help us if He's reached the same conclusion (Isaiah 1)!
