It gets away from me - blogging, that is. I seem to have ideas of what I want to write about, mulling them over in my mind and then --not writing.
That is the problem with intentions, they either get done or don't. And the outcome is no secret.

'24' - What's all this with Chloe and Morris?

I've just caught up on a couple of '24' episodes and I'm wondering where all this is going with Chloe and Morris. Personally, I think she and Jack are going to end up together this season....did you notice a couple of episodes ago when Chloe told Jack, "I'm glad you weren't hurt today."? Jack gently reached out and touched her arm. Subtle, I know, but a forecast of where things might go?
I hope all the emphasis on Morris' drinking and Chloe's covering for him leads's getting old. And how does she get any work done? She has her eye on Morris constantly, runs to his workspace every few minutes to ask how he's doing, to fix something he hasn't done correctly...who gets to work like that?
Personally, I'd like to see more Jack action and less Chloe and Morris. But that's just me.

'24' - And you thought you were having a bad day!

It's been a while since I've blogged about '24' - the tension filled blockbuster featuring Jack Bauer fighting the war on terror. It's not that Jack isn't a team player - the team keeps getting killed.
I kind of feel sorry for Jack.
He cut off family ties years ago and then when re-united finds they were at the root of some of his darkest times. Plots to kill presidents, Jack's 18 month disappearance, 2 years in a Chinese prison, a partnership with terrorists to set off nukes, and his father's threats to kill his own could any family.
Well maybe not any family but most families have something that causes wounds. And like Jack, we sometimes live in denial for a while and when confronted with truth....yikes!! And if we could talk to Jack about his family we would likely find disappointment and a deep yearning to connect - a need to fill that void inside.
Maybe that explains Jack's risky lifestyle -- a need for a hero.

Smiles Happen

Thanks to my gigglebox friend Aimme, smiles happen! (See January 5th posting)

Last week Aimee knew I was struggling, fighting discouragement and anxiety and fear. She was on it! Knowing some of the things I am most passionate about Aimee sent a "smiles happen" coffee mug, coffee and treats! Nothing says love like coffee!

Week One - My Heart

Fasting is never easy for me. I tend to think once I get past the first day or so I'll be okay. But no - I keep wanting to bend the rules. Next thing you know moose tracks ice cream will be health food from heaven!
I am finding that even though I am not "perfect", when I am sincere about seeking God -- he knows my heart. My purpose for this fast is to know God more and hear his voice above the rest. I think it's happening! I no longer feel so wishy-washy about what I am doing. By that I mean I was all over the place in trying to "solve" my problems. Wes said I was approaching them "willy-nilly" -- trying anything and everything I could imagine just to be doing something!
God is giving me peace and now I am able to watch him work instead of trying hard to work myself. Kind of cool if you ask me. Want the details?? Stay tuned...they will be here eventually!
