acresofhope: (ever after princess)
Yesterday I watched The Passion...alone. I think I needed to. I keep asking God to change me, because honestly, in this place in time, I feel like I haven't changed all that much from who I used to be. Maybe this is a spiritual "wall", like runners hit on the last half of a long race. There was a time when I was doing pretty great, better than I am now even, then something happened. What was it? I wish I could pinpoint it, then maybe I could deal with what's really going on.

I'm sure most of you don't know what I mean in the specifics, but I think all Christians on my list can identify generally.

Anyway...I don't have anything else to say right now.

I got my last post in before LJ went poof for who knows how long. Seriously, who knows how long? Cause I think I was sleeping most of the time.

So I'm sitting here with a cup of tea (green, decaf, hot), about to listen to a John Piper sermon. Not that I couldn't listen to a sermon when I get to church, but...and I feel bad saying this about my pastor...the guy doesn't dig very deep. I could learn everything he teaches by simply reading the text. He tells funny stories and preaches truth things, but...meh.

I'm really looking forward to Thanksgiving this year. Deb (the sis) and Jeff (the soon to be 20 year old bro) aren't going to be here, but that's okay. Jeff will be here for Christmas (or so I understand). But I have a totally new perspective this year, or new in that I haven't had this kind of vision in a long time. I am actually humble enough to see the things there are to be thankful for, and that itself is something to be thankful for. I'm looking forward to the annual gathering at the student minister's house. There are some people I know will be there that I'm anxious to see. I also get to share my Thanksgiving tradition of watching The Passion with my brother Brandon. I told him he could watch it when he turned 13, and he has. The challenge is keeping Greg (8) out of the room.

And I just thought of something. Chris (nearly 18...and I have now mentioned all my siblings) is a Christian now, so maybe he could watch The Passion with us?

Well, I need to stop writing now, if I ever hope to get to church on time.
