Week that Was

I had good intentions, but the world kept interfering

It's been an interesting week. Last Friday morning I started thinking about Monday's entry. I thought I'd talk about how I have been having trouble finding ways to express and manifest my faith. It's funny how things always seemed to come up, and I am still not quite sure what in my life has led me to that point.

Was it starting my political blog? Or was it when I started to look for other ways to make money? Was it when I went for that extra cup of tea rather than spending a few moments before my altar? Was it when I grabbed a science fiction novel to read over breakfast instead of something about paganism?

I certainly thought I had a pretty good entry there. A little whiney maybe, but I could work something out.

Friday afternoon I got company. And a reminder why it is a good idea to keep the bathrooms cleaned. The house was probably a little dusty but we didn't spend that much time outside the kitchen and bedroom anyway.

Sunday night we went to see The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe. Excellent film by the way. And then we found other amusements. So that takes me to Monday afternoon, which is normally my errand day.

Are you spotting a pattern here?

The articles here at TPY take more time to write than most of the articles at PV, probably because most of PV is commentary while most of TPY are the things I believe.

Monday afternoon a friend of mine who has been ill made it back in town. There are some issues with the family, but I was invited to dinner. When I got back home, I was too tired to write. I was spent physically and spiritually.

Tuesday I rested up a bit.

Wednesday, I got too smart for my own good and managed to sideline my desktop Mac for 24 hours.

At this point it finally breaks through my tough skull that Someone is trying to make a point. A REALLY important one. As much as I enjoyed the company and the sex, it was a distraction from what I had promised that I would do.

Obviously my priorities aren't straight yet. Which is why I was told a few weeks ago to manifest my faith. I'm still not sure exactly what that means, but I'm pretty sure I haven't done it right. Yet. I've let the mundane interfere and distract me.
