It has been so nice to settle down a tad bit and have time to catch up on all the little things that I haven't be able to do. Life has tossed me a good amount of upheaval lately, but in the last few weeks since I moved, it has calmed down quite a bit. There are still things to do--I have only worked on my book once since I got this job--but little by little, I am discovering how to incorporate everything back into my schedule.
(Can I just say, in passing, that managing my activities has turned out to be far more successful than managing my time?)
So here are a few of the things that I have been so grateful to have the chance to do...
--Catch up on thank-you notes that were overdue since July. So sorry to everyone who had to wait so long! Thank you for everything!
--Make a purse that will be donated to Focus on the Family's gift shop, and the proceeds go to their ministry to sex trafficking victims
--Bake! A lot! Cinnamon rolls, apple pie, pumpkin pie, oat dinner rolls, and homemade tortillas. Yum! (And it's good to have a lot of people around to eat the food.) :-)
--Play the piano. I was so music starved for so long. It's great to be polishing the rust back off of my favorite pieces.
Thank you, Jesus, for the chance for a little bit of leisure, the chance to recharge, and the chance to just enjoy simple things. You are always so good to me!
