Oh, Friday. Oh, Thoughts.

When I was younger, one of the TV networks had "TGIF" on Fridays.  There were about 4 sitcoms showed in a row that were all referred to as "TGIF."  I think Step-by-Step was one of them for a while, and maybe Sabrina....?  I don't really remember anymore. Regardless, when someone says "TGIF," I still think of a TV line up.

But seriously, I'm glad it's Friday. I'm T.I.R.E.D. today.

A few days ago I posted on The Fork in the Road, my thoughts about needing to make a choice.  This week has been good in that area.  I've spent some consistent time with the One, have been listening to some awesome sermons from morning radio, and have been blessed a lot by reading some of your thoughts on things. 

It's been so good that my brain is pretty much on overload.  There are so many thoughts turning around and around and around in there that I would like a day to just stop, pause, listen, and think

My thoughts range from how to love my Husband to how to love others to what forgiveness is and some things I need to let go of.  From what it means to follow Jesus to what it means to be healthy to what my relationships should look like.  From seeing my flaws and my beautifuls. 

It's just a lot.  I could write a dozen blog posts on what is in my head.  I'm not even kidding.  The very thought of which thought to start with is daunting. 

This weekend we're going to the mountains to a friend's cabin.  I'll have to work on online stuff (which I am starting to hate) part of the time, but I'm hoping to also use the time to play a little and spend some time processing all the things I'm thinking. 

Being in the mountains always helps me reset.

The main thing I'm getting, though, is that God hasn't been silent recently. 

I just wasn't listening.  The minute I started was the minute I heard what He was saying.  About a lot.  A lot.  (Have I mentioned it's a lot yet?)

But it's Good.  Which excites me.

And now it's time to go back to teaching for the rest of the day.


  1. I want to go to a cabin for the weekend. any cabin, any weekend. :0)

    this weekend I will be visiting your Husband's old stompin' grounds...

    Hope it's a great time away...enjoy!

  2. Hi Beth. I pray you have a time of refreshing in the mountains. I'm sending you an email.

  3. I use to LOVE the Friday night shows when I was like 14!! HAHA, good memories!

  4. I have tried to journal for years and have never stuck with it. I finally started a prayer journal a couple of months ago and have actually kept up with it. It has been so neat to actually see the evidence of God working. Things I probably would never have seen are so obvious when they are actually written and I see the answers!

    Enjoy your weekend in the mountains...sounds divine!

  5. I pray that the Lord will speak to you in an amazing way.


I love comment-love! Share with me. :)
