March currents

Current Book: Daring Greatly by Brene Brown. I've had this book beside my bed for a long time but am just now getting around to reading it and it is SO good.

Current Playlist: Sovereign by Chris Tomlin has been on repeat for almost a week. I do that with songs I love. I just play them over and over and over and over ad nauseum. Honestly, I never tire of Chris Tomlin. Never. Ever.

Current Color: It seems like black has been front and center in my wardrobe lately but I am ready for spring colors!!!

Current Drink: Peach tea, blueberry tea, water. I'm so boring.

Current Food: The food chapter in "7" really did a number on me and I've found myself re-evaluating many of my food choices and buying patterns of late. I hope to share more about this soon.

Current Favorite Favorite: I have two. A new pair of earrings from Francesca's (I love this store and was so happy to realize that our Francesca's finally opened!) And Hail Merry Meyer Lemon Tarts (I buy them at my health food store--soooooooo delicious!)

Current Wish List: Nothing comes to mind at the moment (that's good, right?) so how about I list some things I'm currently praying for? A friend who needs a miracle in her marriage. Another friend who is wading through some difficult and painful life circumstances. And for wisdom and clarity about some decisions I need to make. 

Current Needs: You know, I really don't need anything right now. Except maybe a few more hours in my day. Or a maid. 

Current Triumph: Realizing what I'm called to do and just doing it. In the past I've tended to over think things or obsess that what I'm called to do isn't important enough or big enough to make a difference. The truth I'm realizing is that even small things matter greatly and obedience to your calling is huge. Sounds simple, doesn't it? Doesn't even really sound like a triumph. But trust me, it is for this girl!

Current Annoyance: Ummmmm, my list is a bit on the lengthy side right now and my gut tells me I should probably refrain from sharing it. 

Current Indulgence: I was talking to a friend last week about all the trash there is on television. After talking to her I realized that I was such a hypocrite because I'm sorta kinda hooked on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. That show is a train wreck, y'all. It's definitely an indulgence. And not a healthy one. But I own my addiciton. :)

Current Mood: Pretty chill right now. 

Current Blessing: Our district called a two-hour delay this morning because of road conditions. It's a blessing because I have three children who did not get enough rest over the weekend and this allows them to sleep late and catch up a bit.

Current oufit: Oh, that's easy. I have so few to choose from these days. I'm almost finished with my clothes fast that's part of my "7" study. I chose 7 things to wear for two weeks: one pair of jeans, one pair of black shoes, long sleeved black t-shirt, long sleeved gray t-shirt, black/gray vest, red down vest, and a purple zip-up sweater. Truth be told, I'm tired of wearing the same thing over and over but it hasn't been nearly as hard as my food fast. And again, God seems to be using this study to create space in my heart and mind for things that are much more important than what's hanging in my closet.

Current Excitement: I'm going to a conference this weekend that I'm excited about. I'm also excited about my upcoming snow-shoeing trip. AND I'm excited to have coffee with a friend today. 

Current Project: 40 bags in 40 days.  This ties in nicely with the next chapter we're tackling in "7"--Possessions. 

Current Link: My husband wrote this post a week or so ago. It's really, really good. Do you believe that any one and any story can be redeemed? I sure do.

Cracking up re: your RHOBH addiction. It is my somewhat secret vice, as well. I do not watch the others, but for some reason, this one sucked me in! HA! Btw, this is Jennifer Baker commenting... :)

Jennifer!!!!!! Why have we never talked about this???? We must dish soon. I only have one other real life friend who watches and thank goodness she usually walks with me on Tuesdays! RHOBH is the only one of the Housewives shows I watch, though I did watch RHONY for a time (back when Bethenny was on). Anyway, I will be texting you soon. It's my guilty pleasure.
