Retreat and Cupcakes

These are long overdue picture from the rainbow cupcakes I made the other day and the Sisters of Faith Retreat.

Green Poop?!?

Yes, because of all the vegetables I have been eating and all those shakes I've been drinking, my bowel movements have definitely been a forest green color.

WEIRD! Sorry just had to post that because I thought it was pretty interesting.

My To-Do List

Before school starts, I have a good amount of things to get done. Today I was able to get the five loads of laundry done: one is still in the dryer. I had a rainbow of laudry...

I got that done today. The list only continues for tomorrow....

--Read Bible
--Clean out desk
--Clean out folders, organize and label for this semester
--Finish inputting MATH 180 homework into planner
--Go to bank, deposit money
--Pluck eyebrows, wax mustache
--Shave toes, legs
--Face masque
--Clean out drawers
--Make pile of stuff to be moved to be moved to Chelsea's
--Do math homework

Ah, will it ever end. Eventually, it will but for now I can take comfort in Proverbs and in the fact that the Proverbs 31 wife is always working. There is a time for work and a time for rest. Soli deo Gloria!

Bucket of Cardboard Stars

I need to write this down before I forget it. It is something that I think I need to dwell on a bit more because even if it wasn't the Lord's speaking to my heart, it had a message that I really need to ponder.

On Wednesday night, I had a dream.

It was cold outside. It was snowing. I'm not sure where we were but something terrible was happening and thus most of the town was gathered together at a local grocery store. I wasn't real involved in the debating but something was wrong and thus the appropriate response action was being discussed. I remember feeling quite childish and at the grocery store, I unpacked my little tin bucket. It was filled with cardboard stars about three inches wide maybe four. They were all different shapes and colors. I repacked them gently. I took great care in putting one on top of the other within in my colorful bucket. Then I put the top on and the scene switched.

We moved to a house. Things started disappearing. Furniture, appliances, built-in units. The spackling on the walls disappeared and then the dry wall. Then insulation. Pieces of the roof disintegrated and it was cold. We tried to move to a safer place within the home of sorts but such a place could not be found. We were climbing up some stairs that were simply wood. I was left behind with a few others because I was unable to climb the stairs.

I panicked a lot because somehow I knew that everything would disappear eventually except my little tin of stars. I wasn't worried about that leaving. It was all that was left.
