A Window into Life in the Suburbs


"Consider how the lilies grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these." Luke 12:27 (NIV)

Sleeping In

Gollleee...  I slept in this morning and I almost never sleep in. Husband came into the room and woke me up. It was a quarter to 10. Aaaaaaaaaargh...  I was supposed to take the children to missionary morning.
In the end the husband took them while I wandered around the house in a semi-conscious state.
When I felt lucid enough, I decided to work on tomorrow's order of service.

So why did I sleep in? A simple case of listening to my body.
Last night I dragged myself to home group... barely holding myself together. People asked me what I was doing there. Well, I had obligations I needed to fulfill. But the grace of God got me through the bible study. Food helped a little. My thorn in the side was a mouth ulcer... which was throbbing most of the day. When I tried to have an afternoon nap, the telephone rang. Well, that was the end of that idea.
Why didn't I take the phone off the hook? Seems like a no brainer. It's been a while since I've had to do anything like that. I don't get calls in the afternoon as a rule and I haven't felt any desperate need for naps for a while. I wasn't expecting any phone calls. Since we changed how we do telecommunications, we've managed to keep telemarketers at bay.

Decided that I really needed to take it easy today. Tried for another nap in the arvo. Dozed off and then got up to make some dumplings for a birthday party.
