9 is smaller than 225

This is my 225th post. Why am I telling you that? Well because I need to post something. I mean really, it's been 4 days...which is a little ridiculous. (Although I do have amazing excuses, I just can't give them to you. Stop rolling your eyes, it's the truth.) So let's talk about the number 225, shall we?

If you split it up into 2, 2, and 5 you can say: 2+ 2 + 5 = 9.

I love equations.

Let's use 9, because it is so much smaller than 225. Here are the top 9 things swimming around in my head right now...

1. It's almost midnight and I'm hungry. Of course, I'm pretty much always hungry.
2. The last 2 weeks have been the most physically and emotionally exhausting of my life. I'm not being dramatic either. Hard to believe, I know.
3. I serve a REALLY big God. We are celebrating the birth of his son, our Lord, in two weeks!  Exciting!!!
4. I am newly addicted to Pictureka on the iPhone. It's a sickness. I have over 20,000 points. Don't judge me.
5. I have the two weirdest dogs on the planet. Don't fight me on this, it's true.
6. Still hungry...
7. How random is too random? If I get any more random will I lose you? Forever or just until my next post? Are you even here now? Hello?
8. I am fighting some serious bitterness right now when it comes to our adoption. No news, no homestudy, no inspections. Nothing nada zero zip zilch. Yeah, I'm a little frustrated.
9. I have the greatest husband! He kills the bugs, takes out the trash, does the dishes, and rubs my head. It doesn't get much better than that.

Now I am going to bed before I eat something.


  1. Happy 225th post, or 9 if you like! =P
    I like your randomness! You do it well!! I'm praying on the adoption front!

  2. Happy 225th!
    I just posted my 632nd... love your numbered lists! :)

  3. Oh girlie, I am hungry all the time too! And I will fight you on the greatest husband thing, so let's just agree that we both have the best ones for us :)

    And the adoption thing? Still praying, and still knowing that God is working behind the scenes.

    It's easy to get discouraged, but one of the things that has helped me to be patient is to realize that God has a whole world of people to coordinate. Meaning that He has plans for someone else that depend on things that are happening in your life too. And sometimes that means waiting (hard, I know) for God to bring about those things for others in order for His will to be done.

    Just think, His timing for you is perfect. And He may be using non-action by people in the process, to bring about the perfect situation for you.

    (In my own life - a simplified but incredible example: my one-year-old son woke up with cough. It kept him from being in the car with me when it was totaled at 50mph by a driver on meth. His carseat was smashed in. God's timing is perfect).

    Much love - and praying - praying that God will align all of those things and keep you in His purpose as you wait faithfully for Him to reveal those things.

    (And Heather - it will be worth it. It *will*)

  4. Love the randomness! It is hard to wait, especially when we have no control but God does and He'll work it all out for the best! Hang in there!

  5. my hubby does all those things too, seeing you list them out made me smile :)

    some day you will be past waiting on paper work. that will be a very good day.
