It’s Wednesday! The Peak of the Week. Here are some things piquing my interest on this beautiful day!! What’s piquing yours?
First, sadness, funk- throw in some sorrow. That’s what’s been going on with me this past week. A friend’s breast cancer diagnosis, Texas family dealing with the unprecedented weather, someone we love being hospitalized- not able to have the surgery she needs because of the boil water restrictions ( the ripple effects of the Texas power outage will be seen for a while), a friend’s husband’s cancer diagnosis. All of these things happened within a couple of days… it’s been a lot!
Process, Pray and Power through! That’s what we do, right? But sometimes the power through is exhausting. I have three emails that I really need and want to write, but I have no words. Two are replies from friends around the country that I rarely talk to. One is an email of support that I want to write to someone, but so far, the words don’t come. I’m a little numb, but I will find the words and explain it all when I write them.
I sense God telling me once again to Be Still so that’s where I’ve been for a week. No posts. No words. Stillness and Silence—
Are you there, God. It’s me, Sharon…
Can you relate? I’d love to hear from you if you can!!
But enough about me… here are some links I’ve been thinking about this week.
I love this story so much. My sister and I talked about all the people who were opening up their homes to others during the terrible Texas storm. We both said how hard it would be, but hoped that given the circumstances, we would do the same!
Very practical advice. No, there are no stages of grief.
Such a cute idea!! Wait until you see it!
After sharing how much I love Origin’s Salt Scrub a few weeks ago, I found this on Amazon. It is definitely a small business. The packaging was personal, plus she emailed me to make sure I knew exactly how to use this product. I’m sold and can’t wait to try others.
I love this article on Lent. I plan to share what I’ve given up for Lent. It’s unusual, but much needed in my life. What have you done for the season of Lent?
What I’m Reading–
I’ve told you about the Pantsuit Politics podcast. Two friends, one Republican and one Democrat. They talk about issues– and no one if mean to the other!! It’s quite refreshing. This is their new book.
We’ve been trying to watch a movie every weekend. We watched on this past weekend the Dr. T and I both agreed was THE WORST movie we’ve ever seen!! But here are some others that we’ve liked.
