Tuesday's Tapestry

I wish I had more time for blogging. At times I am so sad that the world is missing out on so much good stuff because I just don't have time to unload the contents of my mind onto the internet as I would like. (Ha ha). I'm sorry for that. But I am thinking about some ways to get organized on here so I can be more focused, which I think will help.

The "1000 Gifts" journaling I am doing is proving to be such a good thing for me. Despite my tendency toward silly-ness and my awesome sense of humor, I am really a very cynical and negative-thinking person. It is so therapeutic for me to sit down regularly and focus on what is good. I think I have been surprised that there is actually so much good around me all the time if I am just looking for it. It turns out that when Paul told the Philipians, "Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things", he was on to something big! :-) My plan is to get my kids' journals and start them doing it, too.

Tim and the girls are off to see the Jonas Brothers tonight, so it is just me and this guy hanging out tonight...

He is showing off the Red Wings jersey he got out of the "free" box at the hockey open house last Saturday and saying his latest, "Wassup Homa Janes?" (Don't ask me, I don't know!)

Update: About my health issues I posted a while back... it seems it is all most likely side-effects of the medication I take and as of today, I am being switch to a different one. I am a little apprehensive about the switch because of things I have read on the internet (if you want to be scared, start reading about your health issues on the internet!), but hopefully it will go well.

"Praise the Lord, the God of Israel, who lives from everlasting to everlasting. Amen and amen!" Ps. 41:13

You are so funny - you really did make me laugh!
I feel the same way - about not having time to do anything!
Jalyn would be so jealous (if I told her) about your girls going to see the Jonas Brothers - and with their Dad - that is neat.
My hubby would love that shirt! He is such a RedWings Fan!!
