Long Day At Church

December 8, 2008

Late at Church. My husband is rostered-on tonight, which means being here for 2 services. We’ve been here since 4pm. It’s great to see my friends but I admit I’m very tired! The sermon topic tonight is envy – I’m feeling very convicted! We’re hanging out in the Church cafe.

*Me, trying to not sleep.

*Daughter, colouring a horse book.

*Son, playing a mobile phone game.

Feels like I’m running on empty all the time. It’s nice to just take a breather and draw pictures with my daughter. She draws the cutest stick figures. Here’s one just here…

I’ve got an exam tomorrow – I really must study some more.

Chunky Me – Further Musings On Low Self Esteem

December 4, 2008

Last year I got quite sick, and the medication they put me on caused sudden weight gain. (It has ‘wonderful’ side effects like weight gain, bone weakness, indigestion, heart burn, adrenal gland failure… it’s basically a last-resort drug to keep one’s body from collapsing – woo hoo.)

It’s pretty depressing to now be 2 sizes larger than a year ago. I used to be ‘skinny.’ Now I just feel fat.  😦

My favourite clothes don’t fit anymore. I feel even worse than normal when I look in the mirror. I’ve got to do something about this.

When shopping, I often find myself observing the birds that have become trapped in the shopping centre. I wonder if they’re happy here or if it is a prison.

Local Park Hidden From One’s Mind

First day of winter. We’re taking a walk around a massive parkland to give the cameras a spin. This place is just near our house – it backs onto our street. For some reason, I forget it’s here. And I think we scared off the teen boys on their bikes.

Jealousy vs Self Esteem – The Showdown

Sometimes – well, most of the time – when I see popular and glamorous women, I find myself looking in the mirror and hating what I see. I wonder if anyone else I know feels like that? Time to fight the beauty myth!!

Wild Donkeys

September 29, 2008

10.02 am – Thursday 29 May 2008

The world is full of amazing creatures. Just read the Bible – Job 39 – for a sense of their wonder. This was inspired by Job 39:5-8. I’m drawing from memory. There’s many species and subspecies of wild ass, onager, donkey, etc., each unique and with incredible endurance and swiftness of foot… or hoof.

Random extra information: on this passage of Scripture!

==

Job 39

5 “Who let the wild donkey go free? Who untied its ropes? 6 I gave it the wasteland as its home, the salt flats as its habitat. 7 It laughs at the commotion in the town; it does not hear a driver’s shout. 8 It ranges the hills for its pasture and searches for any green thing. (Today’s New International Version, from http://bible.crosswalk.com/.)

From ICR’s Online Study Bible reference to Strong’s Concordance:

6501
arp , peh’-reh: or pereh (Jeremiah 2:24) {peh’-reh}; from 06500 in the secondary sense of running wild; the onager:–wild (ass).

Job 39:5
Who hath sent out the wild ass free? or who hath loosed the bands of the wild ass?
