90 day Bible excuse- the UFO that's been plagueing me!
I always start the 90 day Bible challenge several days early just in case anything might come up that would preclude me from reading for a few days. Little did I know that a UFO would prevent me from reading over the last three days! That's right, a UFO, unidentified foreign object.
My right eye has been bothering me for almost a week. At first I thought I just had something in it, then I thought maybe it was just dry. Then Thursday I realized I had become extremely photo-sensitive. I kept thinking it would get better, but it kept getting worse to the point that I couldn't drive, read, or get on my computer by Saturday (that's when it became an emergency :). Sunday I was chauffeured to church wearing my dark glasses and this morning I was basically non-functional. I had sharp pains going through my eye whether it was open or closed. So, I figured it was time to get seen by someone. Actually, my husband laid down the law and said he was taking me to a doctor today. Long story short- he removed a triangular, transparent plastic shard from my eye. This was around 2:30 this afternoon and it's already feeling better. My folks and I have had a road trip planned for in the morning and I've been worried that I wouldn't be able to drive (which means all 9 of us would ride in their car and no it's not a van). Now I'm thinking I may be able to drive, after all. We're going to Great Wolf Lodge in Dallas and the kids are super excited (Queen's sleeping in her swimsoup). (Big D has a pastor's conference.)
So, do I win for having the most outrageous excuse ever for not reading my Bible? Don't worry, I'm taking my Bible on CD for the trip so I can catch up and get ahead again : ). Hey, you do what you gotta do, right? How are you coming along with your reading?
- I'm an on-the-run mom to 6 kids who studied and taught exercise science in a previous life. I love all things running, nutrition, and health-related. I usually run at zero dark thirty in the morning and am often quite hungry before, during, and after my run, but I live a rich, full, blessed life with my children, family, and friends. My faith in God is my anchor, and looking to Him and His promises allows me to live fully even when life circumstances are difficult. While running gives me an appetite, my desire is to hunger and thirst for righteousness more than for physical food.
