Trusting God, Children's Church, and Clouds

1:00 AM

How can days be so crammed full of things yet have so little to report? Perhaps I haven't really been paying attention to the details of life to notice. Also, perhaps life is just so routine at the moment it's hard to think of anything truly newsworthy. However, I'm going to try to give you a glimpse into what's been going on on my side of the screen.

I was feeling pretty down on Saturday. I've felt like a failure. Book sales haven't been great, well-meaning people have told how I need to change before man will be interested in me. Before you go and feel sorry for me (or angry at someone), the real issue is that my heart hasn't been in the right place. I know that sales or a wedding ring will not make me complete or solve the real issue. The real issue is that my heart needs to fully trust God and His plan for my life story.

With that said, I was very grateful for one-on-one time with my Mom after church.

Speaking of church, I started in late summer helping out with the children's ministry. For obvious reasons, I don't have pictures of that. However, I'm really enjoying it and am excited and nervous to be moving into teaching the upper elementary students later this month. 

Fall has come late to Texas. It wasn't until last week we started cooling down. The clouds have been pretty cool. Yes, I've been a cloud watcher since I was little. I take pictures of them often and spend a lot of time watching them.

On the day it cooled down, I did something a lot of authors do, but it was a first for me...


I worked on my writing at Starbucks.

I don't like coffee and I feel like Starbucks is way overpriced, but I needed something that was open early and had good wi-fi. I have to say, it was a pretty good experience.  However, don't send me gift cards yet, I would still rather drink cups of tea from The Republic of Tea (Their Pumpkin Spice tea is my favorite, if you wanted to know) at home and work in my PJ's.

What's been going on in your life?
