It’s time for my holiday to end. I’ve got to get serious about writing again. Well, maybe not a lot of writing just yet but definitely time to be productively wrestling with ideas and plots and characters.
I’ve had a few pearls dropped in my creative lap lately. There is a particular parable that I want to use in a book, and in answer to that desire, I’ve now heard two teachings on that parable within a matter of days, the first one by my own pastor, the second on an audio book from Max Lucado. Listening to these two teachings, I saw so clearly what one character’s motivations would be for her actions. Too cool. Love it when that happens.
I went to the mall today, spending a bit of my Christmas money (helping out the economy, right?). I didn’t do a lot or buy a lot.
Oh, I was back at the fitness center this morning, too. Ugh! I have been eating way too much and exercising way too little. Tried to put on a new pair of jeans that I bought a month ago, and that was a nightmare. So I’m getting a head start on the New Year work outs. Why is that good habits get broken in an instant and bad habits take forever to break?
Our church is planning a big celebration for Epiphany (Jan. 6). The movie Luther played for about one week in Boise and then was gone. Staff members who saw it said it’s a great movie. So the Vineyard is going to have a movie premiere night for Luther with ushers in coat tails and a search light and the whole schmear. Kids will have their own movies in the youth center. There will be popcorn, etc. Yesterday we got tickets to give away to non-Vineyard folks. Should be a fun night.
I hope Poppet lets me sleep tonight. She has been so restless lately, asking out several times a night. I love her but…
But tomorrow I quit playing and get back to work. It had to happen.
