“Father, make of me a crisis man. Bring those I contact to decision. Let me not be a milepost on a single road;
make me a fork
, that men must turn one way or another on facing Christ in me.” - Jim Elliot

As of Late – July 24th, 2010

Mt. Hood Dressed in Blue

As of late is something my bloggy friend, Deborah, is participating in via here.  I liked the simplicity of it and thought I would join in!

Lately I've been recuperating from my recent two-week trip to Maryland.

Lately I have been enjoying sunshine and heat.

Lately I have been attempting a knitting project that is harder than my abilities.

Lately I have fallen behind on getting my Bible Study homework done.

Lately I have fallen behind on reading blogs.

Lately I have been wondering what ever happened to those precious little baby birds.

Lately I have been drinking an inordinate amount of coffee.

Lately I have been missing my family.  (Especially, my Sis!)

Lately I have been enjoying hanging with my church family.

Lately I got my hair cut a bit shorter than usual.  (Oops!)

Lately I have been reading.  And reading.  (Just finished Jane Austen's Emma.)

Lately I have been wondering what the rest of the summer will look like.

And I’ve been wondering, what have you been up to as of late?


Sherrie said...

Lately I have been really depressed.
Lately I have been unsure if I am who God says I am.
Lately I miss my sisters too.
Lately I had a bad fight with my husband over his drinking.
Lately I am realizing I need professional help for my anger.
Lately reading anything is hard...including the Bible.
Lately I am tired
Lately I feel I need a good friend that will let me tell them I am not perfect and hope they still accept me for me.
Lately I realize that summer is almost over and I have done nothing to improve my health.

Hello, sweet sister, Sherrie!

Lately I've been wondering how you've been doing and praying for you.

Need a phone call or do you want to come over and rest in my garden this week?

I never thought you were perfect!
I will always accept you.
The summer is not over.

lately I have been a bit out of sorts.
Lately I have fallen very far behind on my scripture memory work.
Lately I have been doing lots of reading. Currently reading Jane Austen's Mansfield Park...Emma is great too.
Lately I have realized that a garden next year would be nice.
lately I have realized I must think about getting ready for school.

Lately I wonder why I can't get that 5 pounds off even though I have improved my eating and exercise regularly.
Those are just a few things on my mind.

Love and blessings my friend

I found doing this so refreshing. It made me realize how inward thinking I had been. I saw very little that I was doing to improve myself or reach out to others. I'm hoping by next month's As of Late...my list will look much more Godly.

I'm glad you joined in.

Hey, Sheri! Thanks so much for visiting my blog and for your sweet comment. Between your writing and your husband's ( I am guessing??) photography, my heart is leaping with joy! What a blessing to have come across The Leaking Window! I will be back to visit!

Lately, I still need to unload the groceries, but am enjoying myself reading blogs!
Lately, I am wondering about God's plan for me this week.(Women's retreat on Friday/Sat.)
Lately, I am reading Anne Graham Lotz's "The Magnificent Obession."
Lately, I have been praying for rain in the deep south.

This is so cool! Thanks again! Have a great day!
