So I'm chilling here listening to a sermon on CD. I won't lie, it took me a while to want to listen to these. Possibly because I was just pissed I was sick, and partly because I wasn't spending time with God, so I didn't have the desire to listen to these. Can we say hardened heart? That's a yes. Thankfully, I'm in a different place. A perfect place? Nope. Don't believe in those. But in place where I'm sitting at the feet of God and seeking His hand in my life? yes. And does that bring me a lot of peace. You bet, wish I would have done it sooner.
Today's message was all about the purpose of life. And how it's not about how long or short, ill or well we are, but about how we make our Heavenly Father, day by day, moment by moment, decision by decision, the center and honor of our lives. I'm totally butchering it, but it was a beautiful message. Blessed me.
So it's Oscar Day. I love Oscar Day. Usually I'm all about an Oscar Party. This year, it's me, my hubby, and my stuffed bear. That's alright. Both are good company. So in honor of the arts, I leave you with...
The nominees for "ICKIEST Part of an Invisible Illness" are:
10) You realize that Late night McDonald Runs in super hero pajama pants are out.- gasp.
9) No more biker shorts and spin class. It's the only time you can reasonably wear such a trend.
8) You have to throw out hoochie high heels. Sigh. Trying to look sexy in beige crocks is a crock.
7) No more bras. Let's just say that freeing the girls in public is awkward. For everyone.
6) You catch yourself drawn to the home shopping network at 3AM, never a good sign.
5) You begin to look forward to catalog shopping.
4) You began to ponder which sweat pants make you look thinner.
3) You realize that plucking your chin hair is on your "to do" list in place of lunch outings.
2) You began to wear patterned scrunches and think they look trendy, even while off your meds.
1) You think you might be able to handle the senior citizens water aerobic class, and then realize that you can't hang.
