Starving myself

It's autumn, can you believe it... autumn already... on the plus side, the weather today was gorgeous so I'm harbouring hopeful delusions that summer was just delayed.

That's the sort of thing you can see happening though, isn't it? "An administrative problem has led to the Summer of 2007 being delayed by 3 months. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause." Fingers crossed.

Been a funny couple of days... I'm officially blonde now, not to mention the proud (and shocked) owner of a miniskirt, so there's some quite radical self-image-adjustment happening in this little mind of mine.

My little sister is having her first day at High School tomorrow... she's really nervous about it so I'm walking her in. My brother had his first day at college today, and I'm going to university soon... it's all change!

Oh man... I'm not very happy. I haven't prayed or read my bible in I don't know how long, and it's really affecting me. I spend about 50% of my life in this state, not doing nearly enough to keep myself spiritually healthy. Jesus said "Man does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God"; and that's more than just a passing thought, it's an important truth. I've been starving myself, evidently. (So that's what the sensationalist post title was about, sorry!)

And on top of starving myself spiritually, I've been living off junk food because that's all that's in the house, so I'm generally feeling rather low.

Interesting thing of the day (and heaven knows you need one after reading my miserable moanings): A rad and random game!


  1. Hey - Anna. Nice to read your blog. Don't beat yourself up about the quiet-time thing. I've been trying to follow Jesus for over 20 years now and have never managed to nail the deovtional life just the way I want. But as I've gone on, I think I've realised that what matters more is the little 'turnings' to God during your day that keep you mindful of him. When I get into that habit for a while I notice a real difference in how close I feel to God.

    Two books you should read, if you haven't already. One old, one new-ish!

    "The Practice of the Presence of God" (Brother Lawrence) goes into exactly that kind of territory,
    and Mike Yaconelli's "Messy Spirituality" is a real tonic - honest, sensible, pastoral writing that reassures you that God loves us despite our messed-upness.

    Take care and God bless


  2. I know sweet FA about religious thingamajigs, but I do know eating nothing but junk food is BAD MISSY! We've had this discussion before! Now go get some oranges and orange juice, before I come down and wiggle my eyebrows at you derogatorily. If that's a word. I hope it is.

    Do it!

  3. I told Mike to tell you but just in case, I might be inhabiting your little island for about a month. Current plans are to fly out from here on the 27th of December & as of the talk now, I'm staying with John until the 25th of January. I think it'd be wondrous to meet you (and your brother!) so I thought I'd give you plenty of notice so you can't say you're busy. :o Hahaha. Hope all is well. ^_^


Do you have relevant / irrelevant things to say? I thought so. Comment!
