Guys, it’s been October 2018 since I’ve done a rambling post, and my mood today is 100% rambley. I have too many thoughts, not enough words, and about four unfinished blog posts waiting to be finished. What does that mean? It means a whole post full of rambles.
I just returned home from my second walk on a Saturday morning. In case you were wondering, yes, I enjoy walking a lot…Except when it’s already 85 degrees at ten in the morning. A heat wave has flown through the Southern States, and blah. This is going to be a really hot Memorial Day.
That being said, happy national cooler day. I feel like I need to stick my body in a cooler, LOL. Anyway, what is your favorite soft drink/drink you find in a cooler at a party? Lemonade or sparkling water are my favorites, followed by just plain water.
I’ve been reading my Bible a lot, and I’m actually about to start the National Bible Bee, which I’m slightly nervous about, since it is my first year doing it. I’m so excited to get started and learn as much as I can about God’s Word, but at the moment I’ve been reading Job and learning a lot.
I’ve been struggling with hating myself. Well, I’ve come to realize it isn’t myself I really hate, just the sin in myself that I battle with daily. I’ve been making a lot of mistakes, and every mistake has gotten me down. I’m not willing to just accept that I made a mistake, ask for forgiveness and move on. Because I really stink at moving on.
I have a hard time moving on with friendships, with projects, and with mistakes. I like to dwell on each one, hoping it’ll get better, or wishing I could change something instead of accepting that it’s done, it’s over, and I need to look ahead instead of behind.
Colossians 3 talks about the new person we are in Christ, it speaks on what we should take off, what we should put on, and what we should set our minds to think of. We aren’t to set our minds on the things of the earth (Colossians 3:2), but on the things of heaven. My mistakes are things on earth. They’re forgiven by my Savior, and prayerfully, they’re forgiven by the people I’ve injured.
My mind often tries to dwell on my mistakes. In Philippians 4:8, we’re told to dwell on things that are true, honorable, just, pure, lovely, commendable, excellent things, and things worthy of praise. Let me tell you, none of my mistakes are any of those things.
And so, I’m letting go, and I’m letting God. He’s the one that can fix my mistakes, and help me to be more and more like Him in heart and conduct. Remembering my mistakes certainly doesn’t do that.
And now we shall interrupt this broadcast to move on to a more cheerful topic, like music that Amie is enjoying.

*coughs* And there you go, that should give you a bunch of different styles and yeah. Enjoy.
Let’s see, I have fifteen minutes before I have to wash dishes, so let me search my brain for rambles. I honestly haven’t been doing much besides gardening, school, working, and surviving.
Due to a few health issues, I haven’t been very high energy, but we’re trying to fix that. 🙂
So I’m going to give you a run down of our 3,000 sq. ft. garden. We’ve planted almost everything…I still have another batch of corn to plant, but we’re staggering the corn, so I think I’ll plant it mid June.
We have marigolds all alone the edge of the garden to bring happy bugs. We also have dusty millers to keep unwelcome guests away. And another kind of flower to keep squash bugs away. (Squash bugs make my stomach churn. Blah.)
This is an awesome picture, showing redneck engineering and our wonderful pepper plant. Honestly, I don’t have many pictures, because after I’m done working in the garden, I don’t really want to take pictures.
We have melons, squash (four different kinds?), peppers (again, 4 or 5 different kinds), green beans, corn, tomatoes (4 different kinds?), egg plant, flowers, ummm…*brain freeze* Some other stuff I can’t remember.
And to end this slightly rambley post, what are your plans for Memorial Day? Has summer started for you? Do you like rambley posts, or more thought-out, interesting ones?
