Things I Think About While Waiting on My Nails to Grow

Y’all are seriously cracking me up on all your confessions about the dentist. I laughed out loud at Vernie’s comment about actually biting hers! Vernie is one of my girlfriends who goes to our church.  She is one of the sweetest people and most awesome moms (of 3,  almost 4 girls!) you will meet in your life.  This is the confidence I have in her, if she bit him you had better believe he doggone well deserved it.   I don’t know what it says about me to be so oddly comforted by the fact I’m not the only one who has sacrificed her teeth for the greater good of her children’s.  And did y’all see Sue’s praise about free visits?  Please join me in not being bitter.  

As much as I would love to share some profound theological truth with you girls I’ve given myself permission to be silly for a couple of days because my brain has been fried the better part of March. I just got back from St. Simons Island, GA where I got to hang out with the South Georgia United Methodist Ministry Spouses.  I loved them so but I won’t share too much about it yet because I have some beautiful pictures of the retreat center I want to load for a proper recap.  Here’s one teaser – I learned some interesting Hebrew and Greek during an initiation for newcomers.  It was deep.

In the meantime I’m waiting on my nails to grow.  I’ve had acrylics since before the first of the year and was ready to be done with them for a while.  It doesn’t matter how often I take them off I still suffer from the delusion that I can somehow save my natural nails that have grown out underneath.  Whatever.  I have boy nails again and decided to embrace them by painting  them Plum Black.  If anyone has any connections to the polish industry, I’d love a job naming colors. As if you would tell me about it instead of taking it yourself.

Looking toward the end of the week, y’all be certain to come back on Friday when we introduce the first guest blogger to the site.  Rachel will have more on that but to celebrate the occasion, there will be a new music giveaway from one of my favorite artists of all time.  I hope you’ll play along!

Okay, silly time is over.  I have work today before youth class tonight.  Also doing some studying for a cool Mom’s conference in April.  Teaching ‘Mom of War..Children of Peace” based on David’s preparation for Solomon’s future ministry and building of the temple (1 Chronicles 22).  Got a spare prayer?  I’ll take it.  Please and thank you. 

Are you in a silly time or one of desperately hard work?   I love to hear what you are up to.  Either way, praying you sense and exude the joy of the Lord in the midst of it.

p.s.  I’m looking for a really pretty blush/nude shade of polish for my boy nails for when I’m not feeling so gothic.  Do any of you have a favorite?
