Caffeinated Randomness: Introspective Winter Blues...

I've been doing a lot of random thinking lately. I'm a SAHM...*okay...pause*....quickly on my first random note.... that is a term I detest...I'm a domestic engineer, full time Mom, daugher, friend, wife, lover....SAHM...It makes me cringe...DO NOT refer to me as a stay at home Mom...cuz I'm much much more...and I might go freaking nuts on ya!

Okay, on we go...
being with toddlers A LOT makes me "think in cartoons"...for example... I've noticed that I've always been sort of a Rabbit....
...ya know...very welcoming, a teeny bit know it all, friendly to a fault...
but lately...maybe cuz WINTER is sooooo loooonnnnngggg this year....I'm turning into a bit of an EEYORE....
...gloomy. Even on sunny days. Whatever can go wrong, probably will.... It was not a happy realization. "Do everything without complaining or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you shine like stars in the universe as you hold out the word of life." Phil. 2:14-16

So, then I realize that sometimes you can just spend too much time dwelling on things. Oh...how do I feel about this...oh, I feel down about that...
AND...it's LENT...so, I should be focusing on CHRIST!
So, now we're to the end of my CR...very very random but basically...no matter how I'm feeling or not feeling...if I'm going to introspect it better be Christ focused and not me focused!

So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God. 1 Cor. 10:31

A great reminder for us all.

Our focus should always be on Him.

I have been feeling quite Eyeoreish lately. I am hoping for many sunshine filled days :)

Narnia, think Narnia...

I know. It's been a rough winter. I'm grateful for mid-winter pick-ups like Valentine's Day and the 2010 Winter Olympics.

Our (pink) cherry blossoms are out this week. Spring is a comin'!
