Another week flew by. Just like that.
It was a good week of God doing stuff in my life. I don't know about you, but I struggle with prayer. I have mentioned that I am reading this book and it has shown me so much. Often when I pray, I just feel shallow, so I pray to not feel shallow and even that feels shallow, but still I keep praying. Shallow or not... that is just what I have to do. God has shown me that even though I feel so shallow when I pray for certain things, he is not a shallow God, but is full of unimaginable depth and grace. He has answered so many of my prayers this week. Prayers of which while I pray, I just feel so cynical that I think "Why pray?! Whatever happens is going to happen anyway." I tell you, if you feel you have a cynical praying heart like me, just keep praying. God works. Maybe not always the way you want, but it will always be what is best, though you may not know it (or it may not feel like it).
Other than those lingering and convicting thoughts in my heart this week, everything is good over here. I have some project deadlines due today and tomorrow, my house is still messy, which will hopefully get cleaner after we send the big girls to another sleepover at grammy's and grumpy's house. Saturday is the day Ben and I will divide and conquer (hopefully). Though all this cleaning is a pain, the redecorating part is kinda fun.
More tidbits of what I learned this week...
- Pray even when I am not into it.
- True is a bully to Brave and makes up stories to get Brave in trouble.
- This new to me blog is cool.
- This new vintage kid shop has good stuff.
- I am behind in my weekly polaroids of the girls. It is because I can't find the pictures!
- I can't ever catch up with emails!
Enjoy your weekend and wish me a lot of productivity please! Anything interesting you learn about this week?
