- been up to?
- been photographing?
- been cooking? Oh how I've missed what you've been cooking. Collecting recipes is my hobby, you know. Oh how Phil wishes that cooking what I collect would also be my hobby.
- been making? You are so crafty, I'm not going to make what you make but I sure do like to see it and "ooh" and "aah" over it. You're amazing.
- sorry if you've blogged about politics. I'll read what you've written but...that's it. I cannot allow that fuss to enter into my already overloaded brain. My mother said, "Don't borrow trouble, Lynne," and if I allow politics to fester in my brain, and there is nothing I can do about it, well, I will be troubled, unhappy, and cranky. People who are unhappy and troubled cannot give to others because, well, they are all wrapped up in their own miseries.
I have other things to worry about tonight. Please pray for my family, as I pray for yours. There is power in prayer.
If your heart is troubled go here and listen to this short message. It always makes me cry, but it is a good cry. The message is so encouraging.
I send my love to you and the knowledge that there is peace to be had. We just have to ask for it. Have faith and ask.
