Life Of The Mind--Cliff's Notes

Random things I am currently contemplating but would take too long to blog about:

1. The balance between the idea of the vast God of the universe--unknowable, unfathomable, and beyond simple comprehension--and the God who strolls through the Garden of Eden looking to chat with His creation--the God who chooses to walk among men, break bread with them, and call them His friends.

2. When both kids are finally in full-time school this August, will I go back to work? If I do, will anyone want to hire a woman in her thirties who has spent the last seven years living in a cocoon of home life, trying to raise two boys without having to go on Prozac or developing an online gambling addiction in order to cope?....maybe I shouldn't put that on the application.

3. Have I forgotten my purpose in Christ? Has being so intensely focused on my home life, and somewhat isolated, made me forget about the difference between me and the new life I have and the way the rest of the world operates? I occasionally forget that most everyone else is living by a different set of rules.

4. How many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop?

You're thoughts are normal, being that you are going through a big change by having your children in school. I think you will find that having them in school will also open up other opportunities to interact with your surrounding community. And you boys will need you now more than ever. There's much awaiting you ahead.
