And then a kiss, but more than this, I wish you love...

I started school on Wednesday and since then have been spending every spare moment on homework.
I'm trusting that it will get easier once I get back into it.
Its crazy how accustomed I have gotten to having time to sit around and think. Here I am after 5 days of not having any time to spend on myself and I can't even read because of the noise of all the thoughts spinning around in my head.
That hope for a sabbath might be a little harder to achieve than I thought... but more needed than I realized.

Girl brain...

"Loony or not, girl brain almost always manifests in the absence or maddening silence of a man. Any situation where uncertain possibilities present themselves is an instant opportunity for our ever-active brains to fill in the gaps (naturally as colorfully as possible) until the man acts or speaks, providing us further data to mull over."

Measure in love...

My hopes for 2008...

*Attempt to record at least one thought or idea from each day (either here or in my
 journal). Maybe it’s only a word, maybe a song lyric, a picture, a prayer, anything.

*Go to the gym and eat healthier

*Spend less money on coffee and eating out

*Use your new sewing machine

*Do well in school and enjoy it. Don't just do the bare minimum you need to get a
 good grade but immerse yourself in learning.

*Set aside a sabbath day each week. If you can't do a whole day don't give up, set
 aside half a day or even a couple hours instead.  During your sabbath do not doing
 anything work or school related.

*Stop trying to figure things out on your own, instead fast, pray, and wait on
 direction from God.

*Live a life of honesty and truth. This doesn't just mean not lying, it means being
 upfront with your thoughts and feelings, seeking truth in every situation, and
 seeing the truth that is in front of you.
