Summer, Fortnite, Infinity War, Orbits…It’s Been Awhile

It’s been 3 months. Maybe I planned on taking the summer off. I don’t know.

But summer’s almost over (sigh). Half of 2018’s over. And Jeremy read my yearly goals to me the other night.

“Blog twice a month.”

Clearly, I’ve missed that one (and maybe the “get in shape,” “lose weight,” also).

So here I sit. On a rainy Friday. In the public library. Did I mention my computer also died?

And I don’t know where to start. Really.

This summer I’ve read a ton. Maybe a book a week. And we’ve played “Family Fortnite” (everyone run around the house with guns…don’t judge). And picked berries. And walked with neighbors.

And tried to do “One Thing” each day that moved us in a positive direction.

I’ve realized that I want the kids to be “yet” people, not “and.” I’ve found individual verses to pray over them and written them down.

We’ve listened to good music. Pecked at the piano. Watched multiple Marvel movies (What…Infinity War…were you thinking?)

There’s a new desire in me to do everything for God’s glory, not mine. To know nothing but Him crucified. Maybe that’s why I haven’t written.

Y’all…sometimes (most of the time) I write for you. For your praise. For your likes. For your shares. And I just want to stop doing that. To live and breathe for Him. To orbit Him as these little planets slip in and out of “our” orbit (I have a sketch of this in my journal…seriously).

And there’s been anxiety too. Weird. Like go to the doctor and ask what is happening to me. Out of nowhere. And I’m fighting it with all I’ve got. With all He’s got.

So there…you’re caught up. Starting again is the hardest thing, right?

Breathe. Log out of this computer. Live for only Him today…As my “One Thing.” And decide what to share with you next…summer books, movies, music??

Can’t wait…


“But whatever gain I had, I counted as loss for the sake of Christ. Indeed, I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord.” (Philippians 3:7,8a)

  1. I enjoy reading your blog! You inspire me! Maybe you will feel led to share your sketch sometime….
    I am a mother, grandmother, great grandmother & caregiver to my 82 yr. old Sister. She and I are opposites! One thing we do have in common is we are both saved and that is the best thing!
    We clash a lot, a lot… I fail daily!
    I have to work at being kind.. I fail miserably most times.
    I pray and pray and keep praying and trusting that I will get it right to be kind.
    Kindness is a good thing!
    You keep blogging when you can.. it means something .. it means alot for the kingdom’s sake…

    1. Thank you so much for your words! You’ve encouraged me today to press on…not just in writing but in life in general. It can be pretty thankless around here with lots of kids to nurture. But God’s grace is enough. And serving Him is truly the best (not always easy) thing I could do. Thank you so much for reading and for the timely reminder!
