Fall 2013-dark leaves

Tuesday, January 5, 2010


OK, I'm already annoyed with my own blog. What's with all the morals at the end of the story? Why can't it just be a real, tell-it-like-it-is picutre of my life? Period.

Because my life is not the way it's supposed to be. There is a better way. And I don't want to leave my thoughts without pointing to a better example to follow.

But it is my reality. The truth is ugly, and truth is I'm a mess. So be encouraged by my mess. And be annoyed with me. Because this is not the way it's supposed to be.

And now I can't think about it anymore because there's a little boy upstairs alone calling out, "I'm finished!" Guess what I get to go do next?


  1. around here it's, "mommy! i'm ready!" :)...

    good to see i'm not the only mess around. lived faithfully today and felt like my reward was anything that can go wrong will, culminating with a near temper loss as i struggled to get dinner on the table for the family that was nipping at my heels. had to coach myself a bit, "find the joy, find the joy." turns out, tonight's joy was rapping with 2 naked kiddos in the bath tub! who can resist a good bath time rap?

  2. This made me smile, Rebecca! Love all your entries, but this one especially. It is fun getting to see little snippets of your life, and how God is working in your heart! I am praying for y'all, friend!
