It's a gorgeous sunny Friday in GF ND and it's a whoppin' 54 degrees!!! (No I'm not kidding...)
It feels like a late October day in Missouri. I'm seasonally messed up, but I'm SO lovin' the city thing. I went to get my hair cut and got a cappuccino at Starbucks this morning. And I only had to drive about three miles to get there!
For those who don't know, the Women @ Home Ministry has moved. You can find us here now. We're all hoping it's the last move we have to make. Four moves in two years is just goofy.
I thought I'd also plug my friend Angela (fondly known as AGK!)'s new endeavor. She has decided to tell her story, finally, and after waiting with bated breath, Chapter 1 is available. Here's her site: When I Was 13.
So, I've been asked several times, what are my goals for this school year, now that I'm not working and my kids are in school?
I don't have a good answer. My general answer is to keep up with my household duties and write. But all I've done is drown myself in chick lit from the library (sort of like a mental chocolate-gorging session, if you want to know the truth) and dash off a few clips to the local paper (they publish a women's magazine and I've applied to be a freelancer with them). Oh, and collect a nice pile of advance galleys to read for book reviews.
I also joined the praise team at our new church, which is the Protestant chapel on base. I filled in on Sunday and got no fewer than six people who complimented ME specifically, and the leader guy asked me if I'd stay on, so I said yes. I've been dreaming of being on a praise team for years, and I started out being on the one at our home church, but it was usually only two of us (three on a good Sunday). I am hoping to grow as a singer this way, but more than that, I am THRILLED to use the pipes God gifted me with to praise HIM!
