Well…for starters, busy. Haven’t you as well been bogged down—or up to your eyeballs? Food? Laundry? Housework? THE job? What about the LORD? Was He participating in all the activities of your life…or was He patiently waiting for you to pick “that part” of your life back up after all the other had been tended to.
I find myself many times so busy that I rush about and forget my Partner. Actually, my Boss. Him. The One. The Giver of the life I so hurriedly live. When I slow down enough to gather my thoughts and keep HIM in the forefront of all my activities, everything goes smoother. As the conductor said on “The Polar Express” (watched it a thousand times) (almost), “it runs like welled oiled machinery.”
So, you know I’ve been busy. Too busy to check e-mails or blog. BUT, as I have squeezed in some time last week and then again tonight, on Sunday I was at the Cafe` having my coffee before church—I enjoyed having you join me!
Then, on the LAST day of this year—TODAY, I am over at Laced with Grace. As for changes….I am seeing some in almost every blog I visit! You might see a few changes here as well!
I am finding there are areas in my life I need to change. I am giving Him free rein in my life to direct me and if necessary—push me in the areas where the change needs to take place.
I hope to be able to catch up with the happenings in your life too!

I just read what you have written at the Cafe. This moved me so that I did a post regarding this on “The Power of Your Love”. >>God has been speaking to me, and in the busyness of my life lately, I have been missing what He is saying to me. >>Beth

Angie, I visited today for the first time and truly enjoyed myself. You are a beautiful servant of the LORD. I look forward to spending time here with you and all the wonderful women God sends. >>I pray for a slow down pace of life so you can truly spend that quality time with the Lord. Merry Christmas and blessed new year to you and your family.

Hello, Beautiful! Yes, I read your post at the Cafe yesterday – and nearly ruined a brand new pair of Depends laughing. Like you, I have more trouble with “Slow” than I do with “Stop”. It’s my all-or-nothing mentality. Left to my own devices, I only have two speeds: wide-open and face-down-in-the-dirt. Thanks for sharing; I know I am not alone!

Angie, I was just thinking about you today. And lifted a prayer. I haven’t spent enough time here. Exactly what you said…busy! I know how lost in this (blog) world I can get, and I have to catch up on-tasks…so much in the new year with inventory, bookwork, restocking, and “changes”…I am trying to simplify!!>>Glad you liked the snow. I just spent 40 mn shoveling the patio today… >Lots of love!
