the joys!


Since I mentioned one of my favourite stories I thought I'd try and put it up here for you.
Then wondered if I was perhaps breaching every copyright law around?!

Any ideas people?

I'm clueless......

All of my classes had this book read to them at some stage - and regardless of their age, they all loved it. When I was nanying it was a favourite too. Kinda of takes me back to afternoon naps in Kentucky. Sweet memories.

Feeling kinda stale today.




Have this urge to go out dancing tonight, but at the same time too old to hit the dancefloor.

I wonder what it would take to make me a quietly content person? Will I ever feel settled, and grow roots. I mean, after 6 years of being here what is it I'm yearning for? I know I have roots... but I feel like a plant in a pot... maybe that's a good thing. God has me ready to move at any given moment?
But I can't help wondering if it's me stoping me from being transplanted, seriously rooted? Lessons to be learnt, and sometimes I'm just slower than a turtle.

"It's in Christ that we find out who we are and what we are living for. Long before we first heard of Christ and got out hopes up, he had his eye on us, had designs on us for glorious living, part of the overall purpose he is working out in everything and everyone." Ephesians 1:11 the message

In order for me to be quietly content, I must have JUST finished having the time of my life, and still be smiling the next day.

And after a day or two, I'm restless again.

UUTW -Go out and party, it's the weekend girl.

And remember, God will never give you more than you can handle.

I hope you are never quietly content, doesn’t it make you feel alive with your feet are itchy? I have only been home a few days and I miss wandering already.

I only hope your heart finds a home, were it feels content, but still screams :)

Since you are so indecisive (yes I said it) im making all your decisions now, first one is packing a small suitcase and moving in with me. hehe.

Since its nov 11, my granddad use to tell me war bedtime stories, not freighting sorts, mostly made up stories I think now. its funny when im on the edge of remembrance, its them I remember, at least I remember.

Xoxo love ya

Jay ~
I guess we're quite similar. :) Hope that you are having the "time of your life" this weekend away... getting spoilt and enjoying some space.

Neo ~ Do you know that quote by Mother Teresa?
"I know that God won't give me more than I can handle, BUT I wish he didn't trust me so much!"
Think it's quite perfect. Wise beyond words. :)

Tab ~ So nice to have you around! I've missed you. Man, you must have been bored today though... reading all of that. And yes, aren't my brothers awfully good looking! hehe.
You know that you can't joke about me coming to stay.. I will move (Big suitcase!) and come to stay. hehe
Yes... I love the way you describe it... content with my heart screaming. I think I've been there a couple of times. :)
