And ideally, it would be great to have two blogs. One to report my business stuff (because sometimes I feel like there is SO MUCH good stuff to share!) and the other to write the ponderings that reveal themselves to me in the bluest moment of the day, the moment that feeling washes over me and time stands still.
But, Lord knows I can't keep up with two blogs!
So, I'm bringing my Blue Moments here. That could mean I could be posting more often <gasp!> and I know it might be a bit confusing to people looking for a business website. But I'm making the best possible choice I can right now. So, if people come looking for Laundry Soap and find themselves reading about my son's basketball experience his junior, then okay. I apologize now, I guess? ha!

Parenting is such an amazing experience! Children are constantly teaching us, even if it seems we should be teaching them. I am still learning how to learn. Maybe I always will be, until the end of my days on Earth. Oh, but it will not end there. I can continue to learn in Heaven! Oh, yes! I have been reading this AMAZING book by Randy Alcorn, entitled "Heaven." A small group meets to discuss it. It's mind-blowing, really. I can't tell you about it, you will just have to read it on your own. But it will change your perspective, and ultimately your life.
Other than that book club, I have little spiritual community in my life, besides my accountability sisters, two who are the closest to me, and a handful that live in the area, and many more who live all across America.
It is a bit strange, this season, as other seasons I have been sooooo involved in ministries and had amazing Christian families that met together regularly. My heart sometimes aches for that, and yet I know this is the season of my life that God has ordained and is using for His purposes. I suppose we cannot understand fully the depth of Faith, in the shallow or the deep sense. How often I wonder though if I am spinning my wheels, or listening well, or not asking the right questions, or, or, or........
And then I hear, "Be faithful with what I have given you."
And my heart crumbles as I am humbled.
And that is where I am, here on my knees again.
Learning to give thanks.
