Why I have been Slack...
Wednesday, 24 August 2011
Okay... this is just a very short post. I want to say that I've been very busy lately, hence not much posting or replies to e-mails :(... I will be more busy later in the week, close to the weekend so please understand if I don't answer comments or e-mails until the weekend. If anybody might be thinking what kind of "business" I am talking about well let me give you a few samples of what I've been doing and what I've got to do...
The clothes in my wardrobe need a good wash, most of them anyways. My room (well, Gracie and my room to be exact) is just a horrible, horrendous mess... gets me depressed just looking into it! I have been realizing that I am not a very good example to Gracie in this, and that it isn't very good at all to be untidy and careless. So, with God's grace, I am going to work on that!
Since the beginning of the week I've been working on hardly anything but Maths and one side of my head is throbbing ever since I finished this afternoon. I had a Math test yesterday (don't know how that went really). And today I had a phone chat lesson with one of the school teachers over my new Maths PACE (hay, and it was really good!). BUT, I've got to complete a certain number of pg. before Monday for my next lesson. I also have a violin lesson come Monday and I haven't done much practice to be honest. Besides that, I've got to straighten my hair tomorrow and tidy my room. The big thing happening tomorrow Lord willing is that we'll be going as a family to Pastor John Piper's meeting in the Brisbane city center (he's come all the way from America to Brisbane, a place that seems to be always forgotten)!!!!!! I am really looking forward to it and pray that we will be blessed by it.
What I am realizing is that in the midst of all this business, is that I need to keep my eyes fixed on HIM! I read a few days ago "You will keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You. For in YAH, the Lord is everlasting strength". May we keep our minds stayed on Him and may we trust in Him, listening to His voice. Sorry for this haphazard post... I know most of you would have been expecting something grander... oh, and I do promise to reply to all the lovely comments and also the e-mails that have been sent as soon as possible. In the midst of all this, I hope to get a few moments of writing time... and I hope I DON'T get a MENTAL BLANK!
Here is a hymn I leave you with!
Love in Him,
P.S. you may notice that the icons and pictures on the corner are all mixed up. That is because a little while ago I tried different templates but wasn't satisfied with any one of them yet. Still, I have found some really great ones that I am thinking of putting up sometime. So, I'll be tidying up the corner soon :).
P.S.S... do you think a change of template design will be nice for a change? I'd love to hear your thoughts on that please!
