I've been thinking about doing a blog post. Though, obviously, I haven't acted on this thought until now. *cough* Anyway, what's been happening in my life lately? What has been taking up my time and my energy? The real question: WHY haven't I been blogging?
Actually, I have no excuse. I've just been procrastinating (I'm the Queen of procrastination.) - and thinking, and...*gasp* facebooking. Very soon, I'll be taking another break from facebook, and who knows? Maybe I'll find more time to blog. :)
What have I been reading? Abigail by Jill Eileen Smith. It is book 2 in a series about all the wives of King David. Honestly, the writing-style isn't my favorite (I'm not really into popular Christian fiction.) but it's an interesting book, in that the way Abigail feels about being one of the *many* wives of King David is pretty much something I'd always wondered about. Obviously, it's not really how she felt (it's written by a 21st Century woman, after all.) but I'm sure her feelings were relatively similar. I mean, how would *you* feel, being one of many wives? Yeah, that's what I thought.
As for what I've been doing, here goes.
Tuesday was the day my family joined 4,000 other homeschoolers at the State Capitol to oppose SB136. A bill that was attempting to force homeschoolers to register their children with the state. It was SO exciting to see so many of us there, standing for freedom!
I went to a lovely party for Jesi Ryken's 16th birthday this past week. It was a wonderful time had by all (I do believe) and I really enjoyed just visiting with all the girls and celebrating another year in a dear sister in Christ's life.
On Sunday evening I enjoyed a small "Valentine's Day" party with Melinda, Melissa and Marie Michelle. We had a good time watching movies, eating ice cream, fellowshipping and laughing together!
Now the upcoming week is once again looking to be quite full, and I am remembering to be thankful. Whether or not I'm busy, I am alive. To smile and laugh, is to be full of joy. To love, is to know life at it's fullest. And that's what I'm going to do this week. Live, laugh & love.
In Christ Alone,
