Random Things (Day 2)

I guess I don't have enough material or brain power for a complete post, so here is more randomness.

  • My car heater decided to quit on me this morning. Actually, it hasn't quit completely but when it turn on the fan it sounds like a very loud massage chair. The ride to work was actually not bad. Abigail had her snow suit on and a blanket (which she kicked off after a while, so she must have been comfortable) and I had on a coat. I was a little concerned about how I was going to defrost the window, if the need arose, but I never needed to. I love my car and I'm not being sarcastic! (Don't worry, Andrew will fix it tonight.)
  • I was laying in bed last night wondering if any human being in history has lived a completely sin-free day. With God, all things are possible, right? Hmm, pondering, pondering.
  • What are the chances that my husband will read this blog? He does sometimes but since he is not riding the bus, I think it has been a while. I have a Christmas gift in mind for him (it's free!!!!) and I'm not sure if I should spill the beans or not. I'm not going to chance it!
  • Andrew and I were discussing the ever-present topic of patience last night when I realized that I wasn't 100% sure of what it meant. Here is the definition: Patience: bearing pains or trials calmly or without complaint. Ha! I told him that if that is the case, I have never been patient for one second of my life. I must work on this!
Themes that keep recurring in my life: leading by example (yikes), patience, thankfulness, and self-control.

I don't know if you read the Lazy D Ranch blog, but you should read her post from last night--VERY good. (If you don't-she was recently suddenly widowed after 20+ yrs. of marriage and 6 kids, 2 of whom they had recently adopted. Amazing blog) She talked about how God uses our children to point out our own weaknesses. She's on my blogroll.

Thanks! I will check that out.

By the way, in bullet #2, I meant any human besides Jesus (of course).

My posts are a random everyday. It really is hard to form a whole post around one idea. I think you do very well with that.

Does it count if you have complaining thoughts and then stop them and don't ever voice them? Because then I am close to being patient. :0)
