First, hello to the 5 people who may read this. Thank you for your time.
Second, my posts to GGYY have been a bit MIA for the last few months. I’d like to explain a little bit about why…
Part of it has to do with just feeling “dry” — but that isn’t the right word because it’s mostly just my fault because I haven’t been super attentive to my prayer life. It’s been hit or miss with a decent number of misses.
Part of it was for “good reasons” where my spiritual director suggested I write solely in my prayer journal rather than on GGYY. So for one focused month I did just that and had a decent number of thoughts, potentially good ones and potentially sharable — I just haven’t yet weeded thru that to share any nuggets of insights I had during that time.
Part of it was that apparently being a stay-at-home mom (or to translate it into work-speak: I am a full time mom who works 24/7 for no pay but great benefits) has me more focused on my fam and home than on myself and ensuring that I take the time to pray and contemplate. And when I should be carving out that time I instead fill it with other important and unimportant things.
I think that sums it up. And the point of all this is I guess just to share why I haven’t shared recently. And to hopefully motivate myself into taking the time to share. Because I do love praying, contemplating, and sharing how God works in my life.
I wish you well and hopefully I will be writing to you again soon.
