It's late

I know it's late but I haven't written in a few days.  My baby girl is finally alseep so I thought I would take advantage of the time.  She is going through her clingy stage so I can't get much blogging done through the day.

Today was another "Monday". None of us wanted to get up after the holiday! We made it though, dragging nonetheless, but we made it. Today was also one of those days I wish I could do over.  Nothing bad happened, but I know I need to get back on the strong track with the Lord.  I need to get back in my Word and close, close fellowship with Him.  I feel like I am wasting so much time!  Ever have those moments?   I thank God He is a redeemer of time, but we are also responsible for the time He gives us.  We have to be good stewards of it.  I am going to stop talking about what I need to do, and just do it!  Just be it!  Be a better wife, a better mother, a better sister in Christ. Just be!!  :-)   My former Pastor taught us that. Just be what you know you need to be.  Stop talking about it, just be it! 

So yeah this post is not really about anything, just random thoughts.  Nothing really "super" spiritual to write on, just felt like writing.  I do look forward to sharing but lately I just haven't been in the blogging mood, so when it hit I wanted to take advantage of that.  Is that normal??  To all those experienced bloggers out there, do you guys have those days??   I am sure you do, it's just nice to hear you are not alone.

In spite of, God is and has been so good. I just need to get in His presence for a time of renewal and refreshing.  Seems like this time of year should be so exciting, but it's not.  Trying to get in the Christmas mood but it's kinda hard for some reason. I put out a few decorations thinking that would "do" it but nope.  I think I just need more of my Father.  You can only neglect your Spirit man for so long.  It starts feeling dry and parched and it affects everything you do and those around you.  You can only fake it for so long. 

That reminds me of a song, My Soul Longs for You, by Misty Edwards.  That's whats wrong. My soul and spirit are longing for my Father.  I know what I need to do, now Holy Spirit give me the strength to do it.  God is so awesome, how could I neglect Him. He takes time to love on me, how much more should I do the same for Him (regardless of feelings).

He has been doing some amazing things in the lives of my friends and family.  For that I give Him praise.  I will praise Him no matter how I feel.  I will praise Him because He is worthy.  It's not about me at all. It's a sacrifice and I see why. 

Well I guess that's it for now. Thanks for listening to my ramblings! I hope I didn't sound like I was complaining. Just emptying my head,  LOL.  Good night!
