Nothing much happening in my neck of the woods though I am busy all the time.  At the end of the week I am just exhausted and would like to just lay back and do a big fat nothing!  But that I suppose is for another season in my life.  Not this one for sure!!  A few things I still cram into my schedule no matter what.  One of those is American Idol.  I haven't blogged about it this year at all but I am loving all these kids.  They are so good.  I was absolutely crying last night when Colton got kicked off.  That really was unexpected.  He was really good and so super sweet.  He is a Christian and I loved how he left the show singing his favorite worship song by Lifehouse.  I noticed how most of the other contestants were singing it with him and crying their eyes out.  He really is a class act and I do hope he pursues the Christian music route.  My favorite is Phillip Phillips.  Love, love, love him!!!!  I wouldn't pitch a fit if any of them won but I would prefer Phillip.  I am also trying to catch up on my scrapbooking.  I really want to like doing it but.... I don't.  I wish I was one of those people who loves crafts and just worked at them all the time but.... I don't.  Maybe that will be something else I will enjoy in a different season of my life.  I mentioned that I was busy.  And I am.  I usually have people over for dinner several times a week.  I do things with friends like auctions and stuff.  It is amazing to me how I was so much lonelier when I was married.  That sounds strange since I am a single woman of a certain age but truly I am rarely hit by waves of loneliness now.  When I was married I spent years being lonely.  I do hope to marry again someday.  If God sends someone my way that would please me to know end.  I love the thought of being married.  Sure, I know there are troubles in marriage and lots of difficulties.  It is lots of work!  But, the benefits of marriage when it is right.  Well, they are so rewarding.  Commitment...true commitment.  It is essential to any relationship whether marriage partners, family or just friends.  Loyalty and faithfulness are backbones of marriage.  I know most young people think, "What about love??"  Of course you must love that person but you also need much deeper things than just basic love.  Today's society puts way too much emphasis on physical beauty, appearances and the like.  I know tons of people that are pretty but shallow and ugly acting.  Then I know lots of people who might not be the worlds standard of beautiful that just glow with a beauty that is unmatched.  I am not really looking for anyone at this season of my life.  I have a new grand daughter coming soon.  Piper is growing so fast and I spend every second I can with that little sweetie.  Megan is coming into her own and really growing into a wonderful young woman.  It won't be long before she will be planning a wedding and a future.  At least I think!  Erica is turning into a wonderful little mommy and wife.  My parents are entering a funny stage right now but I know sooner than I would like they will need me more than they will probably like.  In God's timing He will provide a special someone for me.  I have no doubts.  I might be in a busy season right now but I know there will come times when I will wish for stuff to fill my time.  It is the nature of life.  We all have ebbs and flows of events and changes to our lives.  I am just so thankful for the season I am in right now.  It may be busy but it is fulfilling and overflowing with just pure joy.  Sure, there are some problems and lots of trials but for the most part I am happier than I have ever been.  For that, I just thank the Lord!!

Thank you for sharing your joy. It's dear to see how the Lord fills a heart that the world may see as lonely.
