Reading a great new author

The Beginning of Holiness

"Think of yourself as one about to take a journey. Like all expeditions, our journey starts with a departure. Long before we ever arrive at holiness, we must depart from self-righteousness and pride. If we would truly live in the Presence of God, we must furst travel the way of humility and truth."

This is the invitation that Frances Frangipane gives at the beginning of his book Holiness, Truth and the Presence of God. I am reading through this great book and thought I would share parts of it with you.

So here I am at the beginning of this great journey. Ready to depart from my old self with its luggage of selfish pride and own worth. I want my way to be permiated by the love of the Lord, by Himself. And for that to happen, no longer must I abide in myself and its ways.

Come walk with me....

Sunday afternoon update

We are just doing a few household chores today. Trying to keep up with everything before Elliot gets here. Plus, we might have company this weekend and need to have things straight for them. And since Tal is working full time now, I have to take advantage of every minute that I can have him to help me either with Emma or the chores. It is taxing to do both at once. But I can usually manage one or the other.

I haven't felt so great this weekend, but I think it is just that I am getting tired of this whole arrangement. I am just ready to have a baby here and not have to carry him around everywhere. And to start feeling like my old self again. But we know that the Lord has it all in His hands and His timing is perfect. I go back to the doctor tomorrow, so I should know more then.

Hope that your weekend has been great! And you are getting your holiday prep done!
