Rock-a-cry baby

Things haven’t been moving along as quickly as I’d hoped. This includes but is not limited to my research. If I’ve learned anything in the past 3 months, it’s that I’m very impatient. I expect immediate results when I put in effort – but alas, it just takes ages. I’ve literally been slugging it out, and resisting the urge to run wild into the forest. I’d live on rabbits and bees. It was a close call, my friends.

My excuse for not blogging is shear exhaustion, mental exhaustion to be specific. I didn’t want to turn up here to whine so I saved you all the hassle by shutting my trap. But it’s open now despite all my efforts; I just couldn’t stay away. Don’t worry. I’m not going to be a cry baby. And besides, things are looking up. I didn’t get as much done over the summer as I’d have liked but I’m almost there now. In fact, I should send off a final draft of my research work next week (touch wood as the Scots say or finger crossed for the rest of us!). Writing 20,000 words has sucked the juice out of my brain and put some juice into my fingers, which now feel tired, numb and heavy. Ok, I’m a cry baby…. But the end is near.

I’ve got lots to tell you but I have to wait for the end. Woe is the impatient one. My gag is back on until the next time.



  1. OK we’ll wait. (like we have a choice)


  2. You sound like you will need a break…but, oh the awards of finishing your project…How wonderful is that! ~mkg


  3. Woh, 20,000 words is a big deal. Well done. You’ll feel great (and proud) when it’s over. 🙂


  4. Sorry I haven’t been around much lately, but my book, The Bellman Chronicles, will be FREE to download on Sept. 10 – 11! Check it out on my Amazon Kindle page.. You won’t be disappointed. And if you can slip me a review, I’d be forever grateful…


  5. MY MORNDAY ,,HI TOO MY FRIENDS BE BLESSET IN THE LORD,,,,SIS DOT…………………………………….“What a glorious Lord! He who daily bears our burdens also gives us our salvation” Psalm 68:19

    Did it ever occur to you that you are disobeying God when you carry your own burdens, when you are worried, frustrated and confused over circumstances? That is exactly what God’s Word says.

    In 1 Peter 5:7, God gives a specific command to His children, “Cast…all your cares upon Him; for He careth for you“. Not to cast all of one’s cares upon the Lord is to disobey Him and to deny oneself that supernatural walk with God among men.

    Is it not logical to believe that He who loved us so much that He was willing to give His only begotten Son would also be faithful to keep His promise to bear our burdens daily?

    As the psalmist so aptly states, the Lord bears our burdens on a daily basis for the believer, the day will never come when God fails to carry our load, to strengthen us, to impart power to us through His indwelling Holy Spirit – if we but ask.

    Marvel of marvels, the psalmist points out, our heavenly Father not only is our great burden-bearer; He is also the very one who gives us our salvation and the assurance of eternal life. How could anyone ask for more!

    With the sure knowledge that our sins are forgiven (salvation) and the assurance that He knows all about every burden we face – more important, He bears them for us – our lives should reflect honor and glory to Him by the way in which we share His blessings and the message of His great love with others.

    Provision for the supernatural life is promised in the Old Testament as well as the New, as evidenced by this glorious promise in the Psalms
