Winding Down and Gearing Up

The clock is ticking louder by the day...September and all that comes with it is three weeks away. Soaking up the last bits of summer fun, then this blog will be smokin'.  So many thoughts to share, but trying to get them in line is like herding kittens. Or kids at the department store.

The tooth fairy will be paying a visit to my eight year old who lost two teeth today. One was knocked out by his skateboard, and the other one was wiggly already. Watching him dig his tongue into the pulpy space brings back memories.

The Lord has been faithful to continue the work He began at She Speaks, work that I didn't know needed to be done. Marianne Williamson said it best: You think you are in a good place with God, then you glance out the window and see a wrecking ball. Or something like that. Anyway, there is a wrecking ball in my front yard and I am doing my best not to belly crawl across the floor, staying out of view. I am kneeling in front of the throne, allowing the work that will fill the dark places to be done, even though....Even though.

Enough said on that. Chlorine-scented days are running low and I will live each day in the fullness that the Lord brings.

Thunder in the desert!
"Prepare for God's arrival!
Make the road straight and smooth,
a highway fit for our God.
Fill in the valleys,
level off the hills,
Smooth out the ruts,
clear out the rocks.
Then God's bright glory will shine
and everyone will see it.
Yes. Just as God has said."
Isaiah 40:3-5, The Message
