I am me everyone else is taken.

I just stumbled upon a blog whose title is “I’m just me (everyone else is taken)” and I love the quote so I stole it 🙂 Hehe!  It got me thinking.

I’ve been really moody lately- what’s up with that?  Who knows maybe it’s the onions they made me eat!  I even told my husband the other day “I don’t like myself lately!”   You know that feeling it’s like the saying “wherever I go there I am.”  So the question remains, what to DO about it!?

CHANGE!  Do you remember our discussion about change?  I’m very resistant to it, I’m married to it and I am living by it all at the same time.  I think we all are really, like it or not.  Can I change?  Can I forget about the onions and enjoy the blessings of the day?

My blessings are numerous really.  Four beautiful children and a wonderful loyal, hard working, supportive husband. A gorgeous house in the woods complete with vegetable garden, animals of all kinds, many many lovely friends.  I really have nothing to be moody about yet I find myself going about my day with a wrinkled brown worrying about my WORRYING!  Ack

Thank the Lord he doesn’t define us by our worst day, in fact I am even more grateful he doesn’t measure us by our BEST day.  Instead our Gracious Father sees us through alens of  mercy, he views us through the veil of the blood that flowed on calvary.

Thank you Jesus for seeing me Redeemed!

Thank you Jesus for seeing me Whole!

Thank you Jesus for seeing me on YOUR BEST DAY, the day you bore my sin unselfishly, most lovingly I am forgiven through your Grace!


Help me to see others through that lens!

    great post! truer words were neve spoken 🙂

    thanks for your comments. Judah is a super awesome name! I suppose you know it means “praise”? Our Judah’s middle name is Eliot, which means “God of my Salvation”, so his whole name means “Praise be to the God of my Salvation” We love names 🙂

      That’s awesome! We picked each of our kids names with great care and consideration of the “meaning” especially 🙂 I heard later that our children’s inspired names are a way for God to give us insight into who they ARE! Very cool thought. My little Judah was playing kazoo at 1, harmonica at 18mo and now (at 2) we can’t keep him off the piano (not that we would want to). He told me one day “mom, I WUV moosic!”

Sourdough Update

Many of you have been checking back for results on my sourdough creation. At the moment it is still a science experiment, but a happy, bubbly experiment. Never fear, recipes will be here! I did make a beautiful, moist and delicious loaf of sourdough using yeast and a myriad of other ingredients but I'm still trying to create something more user friendly. Wouldn't it be awesome to have a starter on the counter that you could add 4 things to and have a loaf of bread by dinner? Mmmm! Attempt #1 - rose well but resulted in a dense chewy blob Attempt #2 - rose ok but was thin and lifeless then fell and another dense (not so chewy) blob Attempt #3 - to the dogs! Attempt #4 - A sourdough pancake success see post under what's for breakfast gluten-free goof? Ongoing - I've tried several more times and am going to try a completely different approach on the bread starting this week. (Mar 18). My sourdough is still happy on my counter and it makes great pancakes but it's a lot of work just for pancakes. Keep checking! April Update: She is still kickin and I'm still workin on a yeast free, gluten free sourdough loaf! May Update: My sourdough "pet" has been dried and retired until next baking season. I've traded her in for a hotter model, the BBQ! :)
