Where have I been lately? Well, I found this wonderful monthly meme hosted by Critty Joy called As of Late. So, since I’ve been gone from blogging for awhile, I thought this might be a good way for me to check in and let you know what I’ve been up to lately.
Lately . . . my time has been dedicated to anything and everything except blogging. It hasn’t been intentional really, but after a time away attending to other things I realized that it is much needed time away. With this post, I am not back to blogging on a regular basis, but I did want to check in and let you all know that I am peeking at your blogs and commenting when I have time. I do want to keep up with you. You come to my thoughts and prayers often.
Lately. . . I have been spending a lot of time with my parents lending support with all the needs that come up with aging and living with the types of illnesses they have.
Lately. . . I have been saturating my mind with God’s word. God’s word is truly living and the more time I spend in it, the more my heart, soul, and mind are illuminated. There is nothing like bathing your being in THE truth. It has been life changing. So, I am in a season of intense spiritual growth. What a blessing to be God’s child.
Lately. . . I have been attending graduations! I work at a University so of course graduation is a priority in my life. Attending my students’ graduation was the first of three this season. Niece # 2 graduated from college this year, and niece # 4 graduates this Friday from high school.
Lately. . . I have been planning for 3 weddings this summer. Two nephews and one niece are getting married.
Lately . . . I have been attending wedding showers and buying wedding gifts.
Lately. . . I have been making a scrapbooked photo/guestbook for my niece’s wedding. I only have about 3 ½ more weeks to work so the pressure is on!
Lately . . . I have been developing new Bible reading habits with my husband. Every evening we sit down to eat at the dining room table and after the meal we clear the table and open God’s word and read aloud together. What a blessing!! We are currently reading through the book of Acts. God never fails to fulfill his promises and he is showing me that day after day!
Lately . . . I have been engaged in more responsibilities at Church. My husband is the Vice-President/President elect of our Sunday School class. Our Sunday School class has about 120 people in it, so it operates much like a small church. So, we have lots of needs to tend to.
Lately. . . I have been training a new employee at work. Not a job that I relish, but it has been a nice change of pace all though a hectic one.
Lately . . . I have been watching the Oklahoma City Thunder play in the NBA playoffs on the Internet since we don’t have TV. I work on the wedding guestbook with one eye on the game. That’s what I’ll be doing when I get done with this . . . scrapbooking and watching the game.
Lately. . . I’ve been spending time in tornado shelters . . . I do live in Oklahoma after all! J
Lately . . . I’ve only been taking photographs of wedding showers and graduations, but hope to get back to some more photography after I’m finished making the guestbook.
Lately . . . I’ve been missing you! I don’t know when I will be posting again, but hope to get back to a regular schedule after the June 18th wedding. By the way, I will have turned 45 by then. Yikes!
See you soon!
