Store Up Treasures in Heaven
Such a lovely, lovely song--Burlap to Cashmere. You should check them out sometime, probably on iTunes since they are no longer on the main scene anymore.
Today is a typical Tuesday--up early to get Molly ready for school, breakfast and Sesame Street for Lily and myself, homework to do, schoolwork to do, housework to do, pick up Molly at 2ish, guitar lesson at 4, and then online meeting tonight from 6-8 for a class. I am sooooo glad that I do not have to cram a day of work in there, too. While I feel like my Tuesdays and Thursdays will go by so quickly, I'm so pleased, blessed, and thankful that I have the ability to do it all. I can be a working/stay at home/graduate student all at the same time--amazing what happens sometimes when you ask God specifically for the desires of your heart--and He says, "Ok, here you go. Something even BETTER than you imagined."
There are moments in which I think it would be nicer to work for God's kingdom a tad closer to home, but then I think about my friends like Beth Ann, Jill, or the Joneses who have been asked to turn their lives completely upside down in order to bring Him the glory. I remind myself very, very quickly that my job is NOT so bad. However, those moments are simply momentary when I remind myself how incredible my job is.
Yesterday was pretty magical in eastern NC--very fallish! :) It was overcast and (dare I say it?) chilly!
And, since a few of you have asked me--I am on track with my workouts. This particular program suggests 2 days on, 1 day off. Yesterday was my day off after two days of working out. I also may some healthier choices at the grocery store this week. We'll see. I don't care so much about a number, just looking better and more in shape.
