Just checking in to…check in, I guess.In other words, this is not the post I should be writing but the post that I should be writing is taking longer than I’d like.
Oh, for heaven’s sake. Enough of this procrastination.
Have you ever taken, as your Lenten penance, the desire to embrace whatever God sends? In other words, you don’t choose something specific—except maybe giving up all that extra chocolate because like, hello? How obvious!—and instead, you tell Our Lord that He can choose?
Be careful what you ask for because God is good and God’s capricious! He may send you a cross you did not expect.
My husband is out of work right now—has been for the past three weeks. This is a new & frightening & complicated area for us—one we’ve not been in since our first year of marriage. It’s exciting, like an amusement park ride with a 500-foot drop. Strapped in, Honey? Yes, I am! Do you want to do this? No, I don’t! Yes, I do!
In other words, it’s a great big adventure but I may puke.
It’s a great big adventure that requires trust.
Ed. Note: The above honest blogging has been approved by my husband. Also, and this probably goes without saying, can we count on your prayers to see us through?
