Strange month

This has been just a really weird month.  One of the missionaries here said that they had found a thing on a walk that they thought was a dead flower, but then after playing with it a little, there was green growth under the dead outwards.  That is what this month has felt like.  Not much going on outwardly, but a lot going on inside.

My grandmother passed away shortly after Thanksgiving, which really made me do some pondering on how my role has changed through my life.  There is a book called “Sixpence in Her Shoe” on what the role of a mother and wife used to be like that describes to some extent my grandmother.  In a lot of ways, I seem to be turning into something like a throwback.  Polished essay coming.  Knitting pictures may be forthcoming, crochet lessons progressing. Essay to follow.  I’ve been journaling a lot, but it needs to be edited a little for this blog.  Also a 8 day silent retreat is coming up 1/5.  It keeps feeling like this retreat will be major for me, so prayers would be appreciated.

Have Fun with God

Then I decided to spend my time having fun because I felt that there was nothing better in all the earth than that a man should eat, drink, and be merry, with the hope that this happiness would stick with him in all the hard work that God gives to mankind everywhere.
