Is It November Already?

Did anyone see October? I think I remember its presence, but I can't say for sure. I was thinking the other day that this October was one of the all-time craziest, most chaotic months I recall surviving. I think the month prior to our wedding was similarly scattered - 21+ years ago.

I feel like I've posted this already. Hmmm . . . kind of similar to this post. It was apparently a recurring theme. Thus the disappearance of the entire month of October.

Oh, wait! I do remember a few things - my husband had a birthday, my son turned 14(!), and I attended our ladies' retreat. And I did NOT have time for an adequate amount of Scrabble with Mom.

The BIGGEST culprit of isanity was the first issue of the women's ministry newsletter under my responsibility. It seemed that everything that could go wrong did; and then some. The icing on the cake was last night when I took my files to church on a flash drive to print it out (in final draft for proofreading), only to discover I didn't have the correct files! I had to drive back across town (rush-hour traffic, of course), get my laptop with ALL the files, head back to church and print it - after hours.

Okay, that's not entirely true - the true biggest culprit of my wacko month, I believe, is the mortal enemy of my soul - Satan. It's been said that when the attack is heating up you must be doing something right. After all, if we're living an ineffective life for the kingdom of God, the enemy doesn't really give a care. But when you purpose to live for God and do things according to His will, you will get the attention of the enemy. Hmm . . . that sounds like something else I wrote. I think it's important to remember that if you're getting clobbered, you might just be on the right track.

Gee, maybe I should go back and read my own writing! Ha! Ha!

All this to say that I think I'm back. I think I may be able to post somewhat regularly again. There's just a little some finishing edits left to do with the newsletter and it goes to the printer first thing Monday morning - Lord willing and the creek don't rise!

Well, off to sleep where I get an extra hour tonight!!

You know I'm loving that extra hour. I got off at 12, but it was really 11! I've never been more excited in my whole life. I almost feel like I stepped into a time machine!
