As of Late
While having some *quiet time* (which really means attempting to talk to God in between my two daughters trying to get their own two words in), I thought I would try to process a little of my life by participating in Kristen's As of Late meme.
Lately, I have been craving solitude and quiet, hungry to be able to hear God's voice through the chaos.
Lately, I have realized that sometimes not saying anything makes the loudest statement.
Lately, I have been wondering why God made me the way that I am because sometimes I don't seem to the be the perfect match for what I am called to do.
Lately, I have come to the conclusion that the only way I can overcome my usual morning grumpiness is if I get up before everyone else and drink my chai latte with Jesus.
Lately, I've been overcome by the kindness of strangers.
Lately, I've been released from old burdens because I've chosen to forgive.
Lately, I've been reading the same chapter of scripture over and over again, but everytime I read it, God offers new insight.
Lately, I've been missing my grandmothers -- both the one who has just died and the one that is in the nursing home.
Lately, I've been toying with the idea of resting before I get to the state of bone-tired.
Lately, I've been practicing selflessness, but it's really hard and it takes a lot of work. A lot. Of. Work.
Lately, I've found that God gives me the answer sometimes, even before I have asked the question.
Link up with Kristen to see what others have been up to as of late!
