My Un-inspired life

Just look at that happy Neuron!

I have been wondering what to write this week.  

 Ever have a time where you are completely UN- inspired by life?

Today it was a gloriously beautiful day, and as I drove to the home school co-op. (One of my favorite places lately, there are wonderful women and a wealth of learning adventures)

As I drove, listening to the chatter of my children, I pondered life unscripted.
I mean I would never in a gazillion years imagine me schooling my children, living in the middle of nowhere, and enjoying it. (Most days)

God is pretty amazing, I still can’t seem to figure out his plan for my life, but I guess sometimes you just have to trust and go with it, I mean it would be extremely boring to know everything. Uh wait a cotton picking minute I think I would love to know a few things, like what in the heck is Onomatopoeia, and why at my age do I need to know this?

Yes my smart friends I had to learn it today, it is a word in which sound is associated with the meaning of the action or object it represents, yep fascinating, I know…..
 I am getting pretty good at cheating, (insert gasp) most times I have no clue what my wonderful teacher is teaching the kids, I don’t think I learned this stuff as a kid, either that or I was not paying attention.
 So I have learned to look at the teacher’s notes, ask the kids, fade into a corner or just plainly give blank looks, eek!  Today I was assigned to teach the “art and baking projects” at least I felt confident doing these things! LOL I think my poor teacher has given up on me.

So here I am tonight feeling like I am floundering, trying to get it right, but not really getting it, get it?
 I know God has a plan. I just don’t know where to go from here. I guess in life sometimes you just have to wait it out, Pray and try to stay positive in the down time.

 I keep repeating to my kids, in that sing song voice I reserve just for them (crazy grin) Neurons are nifty and dendrites are dandy……hopefully I grow an abundance of them quickly, because they would come in handy about now.
Too bad you couldn’t roll on over to the corner store and pick up a pack of neurons, stick them into your noggin and move on with your day, how easy would that be?

But you know friends sticking with easy, predictable and safe are not where growth happens, it is in the hard, ugly and stinky and the darn right uncomfortable that life meets living.  ~Pinching self-~ Yep, I seem to be living!

2 Timothy 3:16-17
All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work.
