Tonight was the perfect way to slip into the weekend after a long, physically and emotionally draining week. I got home from work, having gone from 8 this morning to 6 tonight. I crawled into bed and slept for the next three hours. Woke up to a dark, clean house. I staggered grumpily to the living room where Amanda and I curled up and watched Return to Me. If you've never seen it you might want to stock up on klenex before you do. It was so nice to be able to sit in our very own cozy room with the warm lamp glow after so many years of flourescent lights. As sad as the movie was, it was a perfect vent for all the tears I've been holding back all week long. It's great to be a girl. Lisl and Amanda and I were sitting around this morning reading favorite Psalms to eachother. One verse that never really sunk in till this morning is from Psalm 42 I think. It says that the Lord is greater than life...I had to laugh since life hasn't been so great lately. But it is very true, not only is he greater, but he makes it better too. A friend of ours showed us an article this week and one quote from it in particular. It says, "'Life is too demanding' for those of little faith, because the inability to rest is the incapacity to let go of the illusion of control. The constant need to work, shop, and meet demands can be a practical denial that God is in control." (Take back your Sabbath, Christianity Today) My life lately is a great example of what happens when you don't let go, it's a dumb idea I don't recomend it.

Ok, that's enough of this scatterbrained post. Goodnight

As Lisl came running towards me waving a slug on her finger I forgot all my lovely thoughts from Prayer and Praise. Hopefully the little nasty creature won't crawl out of the garbage and wreak revenge on us in our sleep. It's odd, as a bio/pre-med major I get to learn about and disect all sorts of things, but Amanda's right...slugs are gross.
