Thoughtful About . . . Umm . . .

It's one of those days where I'm sitting here staring at my computer screen going, "Surely I have thoughts. Surely I do. I can be thoughtful about . . . umm . . . no, that's stupid. But maybe . . . hmmm . . . no, I don't think so."

Yeah, little random in my thinking this morning. In a few minutes I have to get back to the final preparation for Walks Alone, so it's all set and ready to go in ten days. Then it'll be time to begin the school day--lots to do there. My little boy keeps begging me to find that one little Matchbox car he misplaced, and keeps chasing around the cats and scaring them under the furniture. So typical, LOL.

One fun thing, if you didn't see it on my Facebook page. I've decided to participate in a neat little blog series this year, the goal to read a chapter from the Bible every day. I like the idea of having some accountability and discussion in my daily reading, so this just jumped out at me as a great thing to sign up for! If you haven't seen it yet, it's at We've got some fun discussion going on so far. =)

Let's see, what else is going on this first week of 2012? I'm still praying that the Lord will reveal a word to me to encompass the year. Anyone else doing this? Have you gotten one yet? I'd love to hear about it, if so!

Oh, and if you are or know a teen writer, I'm running a fun contest over at Next Gen Writers this week--send in a 50 word blurb about your main character and get feedback and possibly a proposal request from WhiteFire.

Okay, I obviously need more coffee. Brain is still so sluggish . . . hope everyone's week is swimming along well!


  1. Fun post. It's nice to see I'm not the only one who sits here staring at her blank blog screen!

    My word--actually 2 words--for the year are self-control and discipline. Self-control is for life, especially related to that ever popular "get healthy" resolution, and discipline is for my writing life. Get the tushy in the chair!!

    Have a great! Hope you find the car!

  2. LOL, Kristen--you're not alone!! Usually I can come up with SOMETHING, but today--yeesh. Mind is STILL blank, LOL.

    Wonderful words for the year. I definitely need some of that self-control and discipline too, so if you figure out all the secrets . . . ;-)

  3. Hi, it's been awhile since I checked out your blog, so . . . tho't I'd better hike myself over here for a gander. :) My words for the year are: attitude improvement, and that means in all things. Less doubt, less whinings, etc. lol

    Hopefully, I'll grab hold and hang on.

  4. My word for the year is Grow. I want to grow in my relationship with Jesus and my Heavenly Father this year. My verse for this year is 2 Peter 3:18

  5. Feeling sluggish this morning too. guess waking up with a throbbing headache can do that! My word for this year is Patience. Yeah, i know never pray for patience cause that comes from tribulation, but i didn't really pray for that, so does that count? Thanks for the encouraging posts.
