I know I’m 2 weeks late, but Happy New Year!Posted on Jan 13, 2014 | 12 comments
Things have been crazy lately.
If you read my last post, you know that my mom had a stroke in November. Several things were different during the holidays and we were missing some of our favorite folks. But we had many of our favorites with us, and WE had lots of fun! We’re truly grateful for that!
These days my fun is restricted. I had some elective foot surgery last week, so I’m hobbling around and doing my best to keep my foot elevated. My immediate future includes crutches and a not-so-stylish fracture boot.
The upside of this, if there is one, is that I’ll get to spend several weeks in pajama pants! (Pretty good timing on my part, seeing as how Virginia winters are cold and rainy.) I’m also going to concentrate on a writing project that’s long overdue, which means I’ll be doing less blogging.
I hope to pick up my Monday Pause and Good Word Wednesday again in the spring, but for now I’ll just post once a week on Tuesdays. I’m categorizing it “Museday Tuesday” because it will truly be musing. It will also be short. And lightly edited.
Tomorrow is my first edition. I’d love for you to stop by
Meanwhile, thank you all for your comments, prayers and emails in the past couple of months. The Lord truly is my strength and He’s used many of you to encourage me. The verse speaking to me right now is Psalm 51:8,
Let me hear joy and gladness; let the bones that You have broken rejoice.
A bone can be anything that supports us and holds us upright. Sometimes the Lord chooses to break them so we can be still for a season. (I pondered this in this post about Psalm 23)
That’s where I am right now, literally and figuratively. I’m training my ear to hear joy and gladness, knowing that my broken bones will rejoice. And that’s my prayer for you in 2014.
