It’s official, I have on the most comfortable and ugliest combination of clothing that is possible. #Icepocalypse #fuzzysocks

It’s a funny thing being trapped in your own house for 6 days.  You see, right before this ice storm we’ve had in Nashville, I had a bad cold.  When you’re sick with a baby you pretty much don’t leave the house if possible, so it has been 6 straight days of being home.  Don’t judge me.  Obviously, if you have older kids, you can get out and sled and play in the ice/snow combo, but with a baby you really can’t do that.  My days have been spent trying to catch up on sleep, laundry, and getting a few work related things done all in between taking care of Maverick, in the comfort of my own home, in my pjs, of course.  It really doesn’t sound too bad, but once day 3 hits, you just need something, a change, some make up, a trip to Target, a break from the monotony.  However, that hasn’t really been possible in this predicament we are in.

Needless to say, I’ve spent a lot of time staring at the TV and my phone.  But on day 3 things just began to feel empty.  Filling my time with little tasks, looking at everyone’s snow pictures, and catching up on my shows just started to get a little old.  I was feeding Maverick that night, and I ran across the picture f the Christian men who were beheaded by ISIS.  I looked at their faces.  And I thought, what am I doing?  Here I am just trying to distract myself from life with TV and social media.  And men are being murdered for their faith.  It’s not a movie or a show, it’s like real life.  I just started to feel this emptiness creep in.  That’s what happens when I don’t feel myself with Him.  It’s so easy to distract and entertain myself even while stuck at home for so long.  When social media and TV get old I can turn to online shopping, vacationing planning, or even recipe creating.  Not that any of those things are bad, but I was leaving Him out.

I’m finishing up Annie Downs book “Let’s all be Brave,” and I just read about the rhythm of discipline.  I usually read my “SheReadsTruth” study in the mornings, but lately I’ve let the other apps on my phone take precedence, I had gotten out of my rhythm.  It’s a small thing, but just filling my mind with a little truth everyday, taking the time to pray and just be with God fills me up.

All of the things, the houses, the money, the cars, the status, the looks, the clothes.  They are empty.  They are never enough.  The more I get the more I want.  When we moved to our home now, I thought we really had something.  You know, a really nice house to be proud of.  Sure, I’m still proud of it, but it’s sort of lost it’s luster, you know?  Like I find myself looking at the bathroom thinking it’s really outdated.  The floors we put in the living room are already so scratched up.  We need a bigger rug.  And so on.  Just 2 years ago, I was so proud of it.  Now it just doesn’t quite cut it?  Things.  They lose their sparkle quickly.  They never satisfy.  I’m not saying they are bad or that I won’t redo our bathroom, but it won’t fulfill me.  In a year or two the styles will change and it won’t seem so fresh and new anymore.  He makes things new.  He satisfies, oh how easily I forget.
