You know the way many people put all that work into Christmas and then get that let-down-feeling afterward?
Well, always marching to that different drum beat, I've got that let-down-feeling now. In May.
Gah. We had such a fun, whirlwind time with our Nevada friends and did all that sight-seeing and everything, and well, this week after their departure has dragged along. Doesn't help that the cloud bank outside has lifted only a few hours, either. Really doesn't help that this has--officially--been the rainiest Springtime ever in Buffalo's recorded history(!)
This, too, shall pass. This, too, shall pass........................
Hope springs eternal. I keep reminding myself of that.
I think I need some vintage time. To read my vintage teen romance books. To watch some episodes of The Dick Van Dyke Show. To read my issues of 1920's and 30's The American Magazine. And to do some old-fashioned giving to others and being more concerned about their cloudy days than my own.
I would say that I need to spend more time with God, but gracious! I've been doing that in spades lately, and well, sometimes you've just gotta get up out of that chair and take Him with you to places where there are needs. It can't always just be Him and Me Against The World. No, it needs to branch out and become Him and Me Out To Encourage The World.
Yep, that sounds just right long about now, rather than dreaming of moving to a southern state (prematurely, out of God's timing) and starting a whole new life. My heart and Life Lessons and this little farm do need to be broadened and stretched and shared.
So maybe He and I will see you out there sometime soon along the Highways and Byways, ok? Watch for us. I'll be that Hobbit-like woman walking beside a great big glowy God. You can't miss us. :)
