January 8, 2017 — Some Afternoon Thoughts

I have not forgotten to write in my diary the past four days.  I have been very busy with other things that have taken priority first before journaling or any writing.  In fact, today was the first day in a few that I have even picked up my Kindle Paper White until today after four days.  I have been busy studying God’s Word, doing devotionals, and reading other spiritual, uplifting materials.  I have had my TV on less during the past few days as well and yesterday the TV was on the most out of the entire day and evening.  It is amazing how God’s Word and reading can take you away from secular reading and TV watching when you are working very hard with God.  I have to admit, not strong enough, that Saturday afternoon, as well yesterday (Sunday), and today, I am behind in my spiritual studies and have some catching up to do.  It feels weird or strange to be out of sync and routine of what I have begun January 1, 2018.  Spiritual reading and understanding can take you away from things that are not as important as I once thought was important.  I am hanging in there.

As always, today is the busiest day of the week.  Monday is my cleaning, laundry, and grocery shopping day.  I have already had my personal cares at 8 AM this morning, got dressed for the day, and I did not even think of going grocery shopping on a warmer, winter morning, with my IRIS worker DB!  I should have gone!  As time moves on ahead, my IRIS worker will be gone soon, then the rest of the day is all mine and Bing Crosby’s until tomorrow morning at 8 AM.  I will write more later – or tomorrow.
