oh, what wonderful ideas i had for the rest of my winter break.
and then, the day before new year’s, i got sick.
and then developed pneumonia.
so here i am, at home, convalescing, three days before school starts again.
i have to say, God sure doesn’t think the same way i do sometimes. here all my friends got excited and started acting on plans God had brought to their minds. and there i was, house-bound, forced to sit and simply wait, because i didn’t have enough breath to do anything else.
do you know how hard it is sometimes to wait, especially when you can’t physically do anything?
but God and i had some good discussions at four o’clock in the morning when i couldn’t sleep. charlie brown had said we needed community in our church.
so that got me to thinking — what exactly does community look like? and i’ve had some interesting ideas. but that’s all for now. i have a stack of agatha christie mysteries to get through before school starts at eight o’clock thursday morning.
