musings of a stormy monday…

a few random musings on a stormy monday afternoon…

1. flummoxed. (adj.) isn’t that a great word? (“bewildered, perplexed”) i think its wonderful. its new to me, and i found it in “home” by marilynne robinson, which is so moving (& beautiful) it hurts.

2. DG blog. i regularly read the desiring God blog, but it has been consistently awesome lately. posts like “Dads, Date Your Daughter’s Boyfriend” and “How Are Women Saved Through Childbearing?” and “Side by Side on Sundays” are particularly worthwhile. do you follow this blog? what others do you enjoy?

3. hsp. this post was really interesting to me, and i could identify with so much of it. i find that i need to be intentional about many of these sensory things or i tend to become overwhelmed and irritable and then discouraged or depressed. honestly, mood management has been a huge struggle for me lately and we’re attacking it from several different angles and lots of prayer, but i was encouraged by this article and feel a little less alone in it now.

some Scripture on repeat in my mind lately…

And it shall be in the last days,’ God says,
That I will pour forth of My Spirit on all mankind;
And your sons and your daughters shall prophesy,
And your young men shall see visions,
And your old men shall dream dreams;
Even on My bondslaves, both men and women,
will in those days pour forth of My Spirit
And they shall prophesy.
And I will grant wonders in the sky above
And signs on the earth below,
Blood, and fire, and vapor of smoke.
“The sun will be turned into darkness
And the moon into blood,
Before the great and glorious day of the Lord shall come.
 And it shall be that everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.’

{the prophecy of Joel, quoted in Acts 2}

❤ Happy Monday to ya.
