A new posting...

I keep telling myself that I have to write a new post, but I don't have any ideas to write about that are shallow and I don't have time to write about anything deep. I have spent my time working, talking, studying, reading, having people over for dinner, teaching, setting up a new e-mail account, writing a support letter, and suffering from the time change. My biggest frustrations with lack of time (although it isn't that I haven't been enjoying myself) are that I don't have time to study Kurdish and I don't have as much time as I would like to pray. There are so many women I pray for and I feel like I ought to give them so much more than I do. And combine all this with a bursting enthusiasm for graduation, ministry, and all the amazing things God has been teaching through His word and my studies of Eastern culture. Wow...

I'm amazed about two things first, how do you find time to breathe and second, how do you get the time to eat properly? ec

Well, first of all, I have learned to breathe and work at the same time. And second of all, I don't eat properly... I didn't have dinner last night until 10:30 pm... I was so hungry! But not eating properly really saves time. :)

It's like what they tell us (only half jokingly) at the beginning of medical school:

Work
Friends
Sleep

Pick any two.

I am glad you are enjoying yourself though. A calling is a difficult thing to find, or at least to be certain of. I waver in my convictions, as you've seen from my recent postings. But God truly provides, and His guidance trains us in the way we should go. Rock on.

You are very busy!! I was really stressed out and tired Wed. & Thurs. I took an hour nap each day for the first time in months!! I couldn't believe how much better I felt. Hope you can get some rest. Many Blessings, Janie Marie

nathan--thanks... somehow most of my life I have managed to still do everything.

kate--thank you so much. It is wonderful to hear from the family of God from all over! How cool is that!

janie marie--naps are an amazing invention. Why did we rejoice the day our mother's told us we could stop taking naps?
