I've got nothin'

- - seriously, nothing. nada. zip.  I promised myself when I began this bloggy venture that I would be consistent, and so far I have (if consistent means throwing a few words at the computer screen & seeing what sticks several days a week).  I've been a wee bit random and probably pointless from time to time, but there have been words. many words. perhaps too many words.

But today?  I'm at a loss.  I have several half-finished posts full of deepish, theological insights or goofy observations that no one cares about, but I can't seem to finish a single, cotton-pickin thought.  I keep trying and trying...

...and still nothing. 

So here's the deal.  I shall now throw a few words at my computer screen and call it a day.  Please do not feel compelled to read them.  In fact you might be wise to just walk away.  That's entirely up to you.  But with or without you I shall press forward and stay the course to my little, nobody-probably-cares-but-me, commitment.

I've had some quiet days after a crazy week last week.  It's been nice. 

The weather has been a tad chilly, which has been refreshing. 

I was weepy and emotional and thankful all day Monday, which I found interesting.  There is definitely some truth to the fact that focusing on the things I have to be thankful for and acknowledging the God who has given it all to me makes me want to draw closer to Him...and the closer I get to Him the closer I want to get to Him. 

(An awful lot of words to say I had a very weepy, and emotional, and thankful day on Monday.)

I have had some specific things on my heart this week, which has made me more prayerful than usual.  I do pray regularly, but over these last few days I have felt compelled to pray much more.  I love how God works in our hearts & lives even when we don't recognize what He's doing.  

I had homemade sweet potato fries with peas for dinner last night.  Two of my favorite. foods. ever.

Oh!  And I finally climbed back on my bike last night and pedaled my way through an entire episode of The Closer on Netflix, thus burning off a few hundred calories.  That was impressive for me, not gonna lie.

Finally, look at this cool view I snapped yesterday morning while working.  It was about 6:40 I think.  It made me so happy I had to run upstairs, find my camera, & try to catch a quick picture.  The picture is a pale imitation & I'm not sure if you can tell, but it was still pretty darkish everywhere except on the tip of the mountain.  Puh-retty.

God is so COOL!!  :) :)

Happy Thursday!
Renee :)

p.s.  That view is from my front door.  How great is that!??
p.s.s.  I just used a lot of words for someone who doesn't have any.  Don't judge me.

This was so much fun to read. I hope you do these more often! :) I especially appreciated the part about the sweet potato fries and the peas. I love those two foods. And I get made fun of the latter too frequently. I guess we're a rare breed us pea lovers. Haha. Have a great week!
