Happy Birthday

I wasn't planning on posting today but when I ran across this blog and all the lovely Anthropologie knock off necklaces she had made I wanted to share the love.
Today is Josh's birthday, Good Friday and Earth Day.
I have heard all week that it is Holy Week but the impact of that fact has not been felt deeply.
Why? All week when I realize that the importance of this special week was lost on my soul I tried to figure out why. Besides saying that I was backslidden I chocked it up to this crazy season in my life. Fortunately last Sunday when I excused myself from the K-2 Sunday School Class and hid out in another room with a friend I was encouraged to find out I was not alone in this season... evidently she is on the same rotation of the earth.
It's not time to pack up the winter clothes yet...may have to run to the store for added layers.
This week I find out my straight A honor student is getting a D and he was hiding it from me and I was offered another job.
Can anyone say, Thermal Time?
The second job would only be three 6 week engagements overseeing the Prime Time Family Reading Time for the Jacksonville Public Library. If I took it, I might get to go to New Orleans for training.

I finished Jane Eyre this week and would love to do a Bible Study based on the book and discuss the theological components of the book. There are some neat discussions here. Susan, Tracy and I wanted to go see the movie but thought it would be fun to read it first...unfortunately the movie isn't playing in Jacksonville...What's up with That?

Last night on FB I saw that Amazon had Third Day's newest album Move on sale for $5 and after I went to Amazon I looked at the

Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought

and this album looked like something I might like so I clicked on it and there was a song that has moved me to tears when I heard it on the radio. So of course I went to YouTube and teared up some more.

And that will end my Holy Week.

Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful.

Colossians 3 : 15

I must be on your rotation too. I got up this morning and prayed but kept having to remind myself throughout the day that it was a Good Friday. I went to drop off some records at the IVF doctor after lunch and the doors were locked. I stood outside the door and called them and the answering service said they closed early today. I walked away trying to figure out why they would close early, then it hit me that the doctor is a big time Christian and it is Good Friday -duh. It shouldn't be that way. I'm embarrased.

Jane Eyre seemed like it was a dark movie, but then the book is kinda dark.

Bad news on the D :( I think it's worse news that he was hiding it.

2nd job? The library would be dream job.

I may be going back to work too.

Loved the flow of your post.

I've always felt "bad" because I never really get more spiritual at Christmas and Easter. I finally gave myself a break when I realized that I celebrate Christ's birth and death and resurrection everyday.

So are you going to make the necklace?

Gloria, I agree about the worse news.

Sister Sheri, what you said was going through my mind...and you said it well but for some reason it sounded like a justification and I it didn't sound dependable in my mind.

If I can get the right material I would love to make it.
