God is a Game Changer

So . . . about those goals.

God had some different plans--some stuff I'll have to write more about later and one very exciting networking connection which landed me a chance to pitch my book in person to a major publisher . . . next week.  SO, there has been no painting, no sewing, and lots more writing of the book I didn't plan to have in reviewable (is that a word?) shape until next summer.

I have also been working on school prep and keeping up with my busy son and his creative (read: mostly destructive) imagination.  I HAVE found more time for spiritual reading and reflection--necessary components to my writing and also (more importantly) to my vocation.  That has been glorious.  I have even been praying the rosary again, even if it's often in pieces.  For some reason, the rosary is always my first devotion to go when I'm weak and my first to return to when I'm desperate.  Poor Mary; I'm glad she's so merciful.  I treat her just like a kid treats his mom--a few choice moments are precious and shared, and then mom might as well be chopped liver except when there is a crisis and the kid remembers the person who is always there for them.

God has really really blessed me this summer.  Some days, He blesses me (like today) by withholding pit-hour for some mysterious reason.  Others, He "blesses" me with sufferings and a lack of energy that help me see how generous and wonderful my husband is.

God is a game changer.  He appreciates that we make plans, and then He adjusts them as needed.  I'm not complaining.  :)

Good for you Kelly! I'm so excited to hear more about this book you are writing! What is it about? (if you care to share).

Also, I love your thoughts on Mary. I feel the same way at times. The rosary is sometimes the last thing I want to pick up...and yet when I do, I find it to be such a breath of fresh air...a nurturing moment. At least, that's me :)

Always glad to read your blog posts! Keeping you and your family in my prayers!
