Well, I didn't get through everything I had on my list (see post below) nor did I think I would. It was pretty big. BUT I did get some other really important things done; like spend time with a broken hearted friend for quite some time over the phone (not u sumi btw) and spent time in person with another dear friend chatting a bit about Sukkot (Tabernacles) and other bits and pieces. I had a visit from 4 of my fave people in our community to bring Liji some gifts and enjoy some cupcakes for his birthday.
Why am I saying all this?
Because I worked so hard all day and as the sun has just gone down I look around and the house is still a mess!
And that is fine with me!
I was reminded tonight by God that 'Mary chose the good part' (luke:42) by just being at Yeshua's feet. I love that place. A place of rest + peace + complete abandonment. That's where I want to permanently live and yet I also know, like many others mums, it is not always easy to strike the balance between Mary + Martha.
Anyway, I say this also because I've decided to give 'Yay it's preparation day' a rest (lol no pun intended).
As we began this journey I enjoyed blog surfing and reading the way other people around the world prepared for Shabbat (Sabbath). I thought my little meme would be a fun way for others to encourage each other BUT i think instead it seems that i'm trying to say how much i get done. It wasn't ever my intention but I think it is coming across that way. I really dislike that kind of thing when I see it in other people and dislike it even more when I see if in myself.
When I realised that today, I thought of shutting down my whole blog. But instead I thought, it is better to face it head on and just acknowledge it + turn away from it.
So, I am sorry if I made you feel anything other than wanting to draw closer to God through my posts. I apologise and ask God for His forgiveness and yours too.
I desire my blog to be a place that encourages and uplifts not a place that brings down any of the good work He is doing in someone else's life. May He be glorified in all our lives.
I'm so VERY thankful for His grace - where would I be without it?
Anyway, I'll leave you with that - heavy heart and all.
Oh and my love too,
