Last week feels like it was a month long. Looking back on things that have happened lately, I'm realizing that some of it was only a week ago....For once, some things DON'T feel like they happened yesterday.
We celebrated Epiphany and a birthday. There was grocery shopping and visiting grandparents. It snowed a lot and yet there was lots of sunshine too. I baked a new cookie (peanut butter with toffee bits) and fixed a bunch of pretty popular dinners.
I cannot tell you what this much sun shining into the rooms of the house does to my heart. I never get tired of such beautiful days!
It is nice when the sun on my face is matched with the sun on my soul...Thanks to time in God's Word and listening to the truth He has shared with others, I've been having plenty of that too.
Look around you. There is so much beauty to behold even on a normal, regular, ho-hum type of day. Look around you and be thankful, be amazed, and enjoy the beauty.
I say this a lot, and I'll say it again...God makes things to appeal to our senses and gave us the senses to experience them so that these things may point us to the One who made us and the things around us.
To live a life set on Him changes things...We can truly see things for what the really are.
With the Golden Globes happening, a lot of people were tuning in and picking out their favorite (or not so favorite) dresses. I don't think I've ever watched them...It seems kind of strange to me. In my mind, it's their party and I don't really need to pry. But, whatever...
Thanks to a group called "Shepherd's Press" I did hear about Jodie Foster's speech. There was so much about her that I didn't know. I should have guessed what her closing lines told everyone, but it never crossed my mind. She ended her speech saying,
“Jodie Foster was here, I still am, and I want to be seen,
to be understood deeply and to be not so very lonely.”
