In deep thought...

I've sat here for over thirty minutes staring at this blog. To blog or not to blog...that has been my question. All I could come up with is, "divorce is the gift that keeps on giving" which then for some odd reason reminded me of Christmas Vacation. All I could remember was the scene when Eddy gives Clark a gift, and he says, "it's the gift that keeps on giving." But I couldn't remember what he gives him. After much thought, I remembered. It's a membership to the jelly of the month club. You know, the gift that keeps on giving each month. Which brings me back to divorce. Maybe, I should just go to bed and stop here.

I've erased and edited this thing too many times. So I'm stopping with details. I'm just asking for some prayers. I think I need to be quiet and just listen to God right now. There is a particular part of this situation that I need some guidance on, and I need to be confident in what I am being told. I'm just doing too much talking right now, and not enough listening!

I'm leaving on Saturday to go to Clovis for the night. My mom is staying with the kids. I'm going alone and I'm going to my friends birthday party. I'm taking my dad's jeep and leaving my car with my mom. His jeep is fun to drive. I think it will do me some good to be on the road for a little while by myself. Maybe then I can get some clarity and some answers. Sorry for being so vague, I just can't talk about it right now.

I do want to say thanks to you all though, you have all just become such a source of encouragement and support for me. Really!!! I know there are so many people who read this that don't comment and that's okay, although I would love to hear from you! But thanks to everyone who reads this, prays and thinks of me. It has come to mean so much to me.

I hope you all have a good weekend!

i am new to your blog, (as in, I just now stumbled upon it) but I wanted you to know that I was really touched by your post.
Those times when God calls us to quietly listen, can be hard... So often we miss the mark when we are supposed to begin. Good for you for hearing. I hope your weekend contains beautiful moments you never expected!

Enjoy your time to yourself. It was WONDERFUL getting to spend some time with you last week. God is giving me lots of motivation and opportunity to change my situation. Just thought I would share that. Be safe and have fun. I will say a prayer about what you are talking about, He knows and thats all that matters!

Larissa,
I decided it was time for me to "delurk". I have been keeping up with your blog for MONTHS now and I just want you to know I think about you often. (You may remember me from BH preschool.)

I will be keeping you in prayer. You are an amazing woman!

You are in my prayers. May you hear God's voice on your trip this weekend, and may He bring clarity to your thoughts. May those thoughts then be confirmed as you walk your path.
Blessings,
Michelle

on a lighter note, the gift you are referring to in Christmas Vacation (that keeps on giving) is a one year subscription to the Jelly of the Month Club.

crap, I am an idiot, I just read over the first part then left you a comment. I didn't finish the rest of that paragraph. Sorry, I guess that speaks my ability to comprehend the English language.
