"If you don't see the real me, you won't see what love has won..." Vota

Today's cocktail

I'll serve it up cold and to the point. One shot of monotony or ennui, with a splash of bedlam and a twist of anarchy fill the rest of the way with whine (for the bubbly effect add complain instead of whine). Mix it together and pour it all over my nerves.

This is my day thus far. (Kristen it isn't really any better today.) Is there a full moon tonight? -- I just checked on-line for the phase of the moon and it is 100% full tonight! That explains it.

When I was teaching 4th graders, you could always tell by the sudden change in the children's behavior if there was a full moon or not.

To beat the sameness of the day, I mowed the grass (I love this job because I can't hear the fighting or the complaining or the whining over the mower!!!!) I also love to get the mail! I think that most stay-at-moms would agree that receiving snail mail is a great thing! Most other working moms and dads take this simple thing for granted.

The girls are napping now and I am going to read more of my Karen Kingsbury book (This Side of Heaven) to calm my frayed nerves. Lord see me through this phase of the moon with out losing my mind.


  1. You're always quoting scripture. Have you not read Phil. 4:11 which says ". . .for I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content".

  2. ahhh...middle schoolers do the same thing, and when the barometric pressure changes before a rain storm, watch out!

  3. Thanks anonymous. I wouldn't change my state for the world. I love my life and my decision to stay with my girls, but I am human and need to vent to Jesus. He does allow us to complain to Him. David did on a regualr basis. When I get into a harried state, I always am comforted by my Lord!

  4. This blog seemed more like a rant than a vent. Try Matt. 6:6

  5. Matthew 6:6 But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.

    Well, I am not praying to show off how well I can pray. David wrote/published his prayers in Psalms and through his story in 2 Samuel and 1Kings we see how his prayers were answered as well as through the Psalms. The Bible gives us permissions to Rant even!I like the way one of my favorite authors puts it (Beth Moore). "Brining our complaint before God is much more effective than dumping it on people." Psalm 142:1-2

    1 I cry aloud to the LORD;
    I lift up my voice to the LORD for mercy.
    2 I pour out my complaint before him;
    before him I tell my trouble.
    . I like that I can go back and read my problems from the past and see how God has answered my prayers.

  6. So, God is reading your blog... Interesting.

  7. Seems like you're dumping it on people who read your blog. Pray in private.

  8. No way anonymous. Read my blog title. If you can't handle that, you don't have to read. I am not quite sure why you are reading it if you do not like the way I do it. I have from the very first blog intended my primary reader to be God. If no one else ever read it, it wouldn't hurt my feelings. And yes, my God reads!

  9. Kristan - We LOVE reading your blog and your testimony shines through all the time! Keep up the great work and keep moderating those comments! =)


I love to read your comments! I would love to post those with actual thoughts reflecting on my posts. Spam and nastiness will not be posted.
