“Down in the Valley”

::Reading a book I picked up at the library this afternoon.  It’s called Born To Run: A Hidden Tribe, Superathletes, and the Greatest Race the World has Never Seen written and narrated by Christopher McDougall.  So far, I am enjoying it and have even laughed a bit.

::I was introduced to this band yesterday.  I’ve been listening to them ever since.  (in the link, click audio. i like the last song most)

::School began today.  I’m in precalculus, badminton, cross country skiing, cello lessons, medical terminology, and psychopharmacology.  I’m hoping to learn a bunch even with this very light course load.

::Snowed this morning.  I listened to Christmas music on my way to get tea after school.

::Been thinking on this verse: The secret things belong to the Lord our God, but the things revealed belong to us and our children forever, that we may do all the words of the law. Deut. 29:29

::I have been re instituting the discipline of prayer in my days with the help of the 2012 Voice of the Martyrs calendar.

::Since I was a yougster I’ve had the desire to live life slowly…we’re talking molasses, here.  So, now that I’m working and in school, busy with some church stuff and wanting to step into volunteer positions in the city, my little cabin in the woods seems a milky way away.  I will just try to enjoy this time while it lasts.

::Have the privilege of visiting with 2 dear sister-friends this coming weekend!

::I’ve been thinking of another blog subject, but really it is only this: that the Lord is gentle and faithful.  He hedges me in with thorns to keep me near to him, to keep my heart from wandering.  I guess what I’m trying to say, is that, in my blog posts, I generally write of seasons, little earthly pleasures, and experiences of various sorts.  Yet, in all of these, there is little significance.  Not one of these will last, even my brightest of memories shall fade, but the Lord of my salvation is ever-steady and always near, always tenderly shepherding my heart to himself.  He’s so very kind and worthy of thanks in both the trials and the delights of this life.
