My days come and go so quickly, I can’t believe that it is already Friday again. The last two weeks have been very busy, with editing practically an entire wedding with literally every spare moment I have. Naps and at bedtime, usually until about 11 o’clock.
Anyway, I’m pretty exhausted. My heart feels a little empty, so I need your prayers that I will be filled up. I have never participated in Lent before, but this year I really wanted to, so I decided (about a day late, but does that really matter?) to give up sleep. Just a little bit of sleep. Eva usually gets up between 7:30 and 8:00, so I decided that I will get up at 7 AM to pray and read, but mostly pray. I am in need of some serious personal prayer time. I have time for little prayers throughout the day, but I need some focused time, with no distractions.
It was tough this morning when I heard the alarm go off. And also, when I heard Eva about five minutes later. So my plans were a little squelched. I prayed, but just not for as long as I had hoped. So hopefully, the next 37 or so mornings go a little more according to plan.
But maybe you could pray for me too, even if it’s just a little one right there at your computer desk.
Right now the struggles on my heart are:
– finding childcare so I have some time to work on business stuff OR
– should I go back to work and do the business part-time
– housing – we have to move in a few months, rent is expensive, is it even possible that we could buy something?
and I guess that’s about it. I just need some clarity and some peace about it all.
If any scriptures come to mind that have encouraged you recently or in the past, would you mind sharing them via a comment? I’d really appreciate it.
