Addicted to Knitting

Monday Monday

Posted on: September 8, 2008

The weekend certainly flew right by me! I spent a good deal of my time cleaning. I wiped down all my walls with the swiffer. what a tool! I am trying to get organized and that is not easy. I have let things go for to long. I am thankful for my cleaning job that showed me just how much  I need to clean my own house.

I finished and felted that bag… didn’t turn out. Started another, re arranged yarn in my stash and looked at swiffer patterns. That’s it for the knitting front, oh yeah I did cast on that hat for my daughter and get her started.

Now for some brutal honesty. I have a bad temper sometimes. A month or so ago was that last big meltdown. I threw a glass and broke it. I am still finding tiny bits of glass on an almost daily basis. No matter how often I sweep and mop, there is another to remind me that I don’t need to act like that. There is a better way to handle and anger and that if I would give up some control issues I wouldn’t be so angry. Funny thing is, no one else has said a thing about finding glass on the floor. And they would if they did! So I am responsible for my own mess.

This also got me to thinking about a book I read called “Safely Home” by Randy Alcorn. (Anyone ever read any of his? if not I HIGHLY recommend all of his) The main character in the story, an American, is in an underground church in China when one of the speakers gave this illistration. He broke a glass and then stomped on it and kept stomping on it untill it was in bits all over the room. The glass represents Christianity and the breaking it represents the Chinese government that is trying to destroy it. the more it works to “stomp” it out, the more it spreads. Its hard for me to imagine waking in the middle of the night to sneak to a church somewhere and risk my life for it. I think in some ways we have it to easy here in America. We assume because our country was founded on God that we will always be free to worship Him openly.  What do you think?

I think we are getting closer to the day when we will no longer have a choice in how and where we worship. The way God has disappeared from the schools and public buildings is scary to me. I refuse to hide the fact that I am a Christian as it seems I am being asked to do. All of those people who don’t want their rights violated by me openly saying I am a Christian should just stay away!

Thanks for the book recommendation. I’ll look for it.

BTW I used to have a problem of breaking phones in anger. Everyone in the office finally decided I couldn’t have a phone on my desk anymore. (It was getting expensive). It seems that fixed everything. There was no more anger when I didn’t have to answer the phone anymore. LOL

I like that glass analogy I have never heard that before, but it’s awesome. My attitude to the devil these days has been :Bring It ON” I will have to check the library for that book

That is an awesome analogy. I do see the deterioration of the Christian foundations in this country – from the mainstream of society, from government, from the general philosophy of the people. Generally, I don’t think it will affect me as greatly as my imagination might lead me to believe. However, I am concerned for my children, grandchildren and future generations. (My oldest is only 10.) By their time, things will certainly be more grave. What I do now by developing eyes that focus on the Lord and not on the Earth will need to overflow into generations I will not be able to touch.

I thank God we are free to openly worship Him in this country. And not just in our church buildings, but with praise in the parks! And I see so many people reading and studying their Bibles in public places such as S*arb**ks, etc. We know dark days are ahead, but all the more reason to get the word out now!
