Ebabe’s blog for today had a quote in it from Martin Luther which reminded me of something I read in The Five Silent Years of Corrie Ten Boom, by Pamela Rosewell Moore. 

My life is like a weaving
Between my God and me
I did not choose the colors
He worketh steadily.

Sometimes He weaveth sorrow
And I in foolish pride
Forget He sees the upper
And I the underside.

Not ’till the loom is silent
And the shuttle cease to fly
Will God unroll the canvas
And explain the reason why.

The dark threads are as needful
In the skillful Weaver’s hand
As the threads of gold and silver
In the pattern He has planned.

 

“When He has tested me, I shall come forth as gold”

I don’t want to blog

I read all your blogs and suddenly I am feeling so blah.  I have nothing to say of interest.  Blame it on being sick, tired and weak since tuesday night but really, is this blog thing really for me?


Apparently I have no creative juices flowing at the moment.  So, instead of being silent I decided to blog honestly about not wanting to blog!

“God Sees the Heart”

The words to this hymn are a blessing to me.

God Sees the Heart

God. . .knoweth the secrets of the heart–Psalm 44:21

Our God measures man by a standard divine,
For He sees underneath every outward design.
He looks past possessions and costly attire;
He studies the heart-every thought and desire.

Our God does not judge by how tall we may stand,
Or how much we possess, or the rank we command.
His gaze goes far deeper to things that endure;
He honors the man who keeps his heart pure.

For the eyes of the Lord are searching to and fro.
We have no secrets that our God does not know.
Our Father knows our thoughts;
He understands every part.
Man sees the outside, but God sees the heart.

Busy with Life. . . . .

Oh well.  Neglect of the Blog.  6 days have elapsed!!

With 5 children, 3 of which go to school and have homework EVERY night, and a husband who works overtime, I am afraid there may be days when I don’t have a moment to spare for my blog.

I HAVE been inspired this week, however.  I’ve been feeling the mood to play with my house. . .you know. . .buy new sheets and bedding, rearrange the furniture, make plans for spring-yard-clean-up, look at magazines for decorating ideas, buy house plants (mine don’t last long), etc, so on and so forth.  Isn’t it fun? 

I’ve been reading a lot.  I’m reading the Anne series again because it’s like re-connecting with an old friend.  I’ve been reading these books for *gulp* almost 20 years now.  I also read a book about people who live to be 100 years old (or older)–I finished it last night, it was the first time in a long time that I actually stayed up late because I couldn’t put a book down.  And, I also have a book called Woman First Family Always that I can’t wait to read, especially since it was written by a woman who has 10 children! 

And now that I’ve been interrupted over and over and I can’t think anymore and I hear the baby is awake and crying, I guess that’s it for today.

I’m going to go take care of the baby and then go out and buy new shoes!
