Hi faithful friends. As you might have guessed, I have been too busy to blog. But also, I haven't had many clear thoughts that I thought worth blogging.
I think I'm in that weird stale place we end up sometimes. I have very little down time, so that could be part of it.
Jackson left on Monday to go visit his dad for a month!!! They are having a blast, of course. I am enjoying a little more peace and quiet. This week has flown by...but I'm sure the ache for my Jman will begin soon.
I am working my tail off in real estate, trying to set up as many closings as I can so that I can stop cleaning so much. I had 2 closings set for this month and both crashed. :-( It's looking like July might be the month I had hoped June would be. I can make it!
God has me studying Philippians right now. I am struck by Paul's dedication to be perfect for Jesus. "Perfect" is a touchy word, I know. Are Holy and Perfect the same? Perhaps Holy is easier to swallow, but no easier a way to live. It takes dedication.
Some friends of mine were talking about going to see Sex And The City, the movie. I thought the outing sounded like fun. But the more I thought about it, the more I felt that the movie is really nothing more than female porn. It's instant, sinful gratification that does not honor the Lord. Nor does it honor women and men, God's children. So I opted not to go. Yesterday I got a text from a dear friend of mine telling me that she and a group from church went to see the movie. I was so sad!! Look, I know there is some good dialogue between the characters, but don't even try to defend the movie to me. I have seen 2 episodes of SATC and it is not Holy whatsoever. Why are Christians getting together to go see stuff like this? I'm sorry to say, I don't think HE is pleased.
Well, that's all I could purge at this time. I have to get ready to clean two, yes TWO, houses today while keeping my phone by my side so that I can negotiate 2 deals. Pray for me please!
