Company Girl Coffee 5.7


This is my first Company Girl coffee post. And I'll admit that I'm mostly doing it because I want an excuse to not finish cleaning my bathroom. (Yes, not very Home Sanctuary-like of me, I'm afraid.) All my cleaning supplies are ready, though, and the counter is cleared. I'm just taking a break. Yeah, all that counter clearing really wore me out.

This has been a bit of a frazzled week as I try to catch up on work and dig myself out from the piles of paperwork on my desk. I love the whole working from home thing, but it is SO easy to get off task, not helped much by my quest to discover new and wonderful blogs to read.

It's also been a bit of a challenging week as there have been several essays over at iMonk lately on becoming a Dangerous Christian and musings on what it means to walk barefoot in our world today. I'm feeling a lot of pin pricks of discomfort telling me to get out of my safety zone. The thing is, I have no idea what I'm supposed to DO once I leave it. I don't know, maybe it's supposed to be just as simple as inviting the neighbor's kid to our church's VBS. At any rate, I'm struggling with knowing I'm called to more than just this safe little life but not sure how to make it happen.

So, there you have it, my week in a nutshell. Oh, and add in one sick 2nd grader who is now getting better, and one 5 year old who is now getting sick...neither one of whom I have been giving the proper amount of attention to. I think I'd better clean a bathroom and then go snuggle.

  1. I think part of it is trusting God with the out of comfort zone and watching carefully for what opportunities he brings our way.

    Oh and be careful what you say in meetings, heeheee, that's how I've ended up pushed out of comfort zone, I was in a meeting with one of my church leaders trying to find solutions to a problem and I suggested I attempt something, before even realising what I was saying. Ho hum, I've got used to the idea now and am very excited about it but at the time I was thinking "Now WHY did you say that?"

  2. I think if you don't know, you watch for opportunities. Test the waters and keep your eyes open.
