I was reading one of those cheesy diply slideshows this morning and saw this… I literally laughed out loud. “Riding the struggle bus into the New Year” could be the theme of the day.
Last night after putting the kids to bed my husband and I very unwisely watched a show about urban legends and serial killers. We were spooked. Plus there was a giant super moon (which yes, I do think adds an extra touch of crazy to the air). Plus it has been absolutely, ridiculously cold with temps getting to 20 degrees below zero.
I was drifting off in bed last night when I sat bolt upright in a panic, thinking I’d forgotten my dog outside in the extreme cold. I raced down the stairs in a panic to find him lounging on the couch.
It took an hour for the adrenaline to wear off so I could fall asleep. Then the kids kept waking up and everyone had weird dreams. Not a great night.
It was so hard getting everyone up for the first day back at school after break. Like, getting dragged behind the struggle bus hard.
I told my husband (a brilliant insight) that we should be more careful about what we put into our minds (especially before bed! especially on a full moon night!!). He agreed.
It’s just basic, basic stuff. Don’t put junk into your mind. Also, don’t live in Minnesota unless you are a certain kind of crazy.
Tonight we’re going to skip Netflix and do a devotional before bed.
My big (ok, pretty much only) New Years resolution was to get really close to God this year. I know it’s not going to happen by accident and I am going to be opposed by the enemy.
Anyways I hope all of you had a less eventful return back to normalcy after the Holidays. I’m just going to close with a couple of verses, which are very applicable to my latest misadventures.
“I have the right to do anything,” you say–but not everything is beneficial. “I have the right to do anything”–but not everything is constructive…. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.” 1 Cor. 10:23 Philippians 4:8
