Spring Ogre

It has been a dry Spring.
My rain barrel sits relatively empty, my skin is itchy, my contacts occasionally drive me bonkers, and, on top of that, most ‘nice’ days are followed with a 30km/hour wind.
It has been dry for me in another way too.
My creativity juice. Inspiration. Motivation.
It’s a holiday Monday. A long weekend. An extra day of freedom! An extra day to do something GREAT!
AND, there’s sunshine and No 30km winds! A few wonderful hours to do anything; to sing, to dance, walk, learn, socialize, exercise, etc.,
But I feel headachy, and rather not excited about anything at this particular moment. Maybe sleeping in messed up my day…
Or perhaps I have the beginnings of Ogre-itis.

I think it’s time to roll this verse around in my head for a while…

Psalm 118:24
24 This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.”

What does it take, for me to stop taking this life for granted?
How do You recover from Ogre-itis?

Love themes and Devotions

I confess, I just haven’t been very inspired lately. Maybe it’s the terribly long winters we have up here in the North. Started in October, and these past few weeks we’ve been teased with melting snow, only to have it come back afresh a couple of days later!
I’ve also been busy. Yes, busy indeed…

… Watching episode after episode of “How I met your Mother” with the Hubby…
Ok, I’m fessin’ up. I’ve been totally unmotivated.
BUT
I can still say that I do devotions regularly!  Going through 1 John this past week. And the past couple months, I’ve had this Love theme on my mind. That is, loving God, and loving others. Sometimes, I wonder if I over-analyze how this is done or what it should look like.
Here’s V.18 for you all.” Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth.”

On a different note now, the Devotions book I’ve been going through for the past year is ‘Solo’, with the message translation. But now it is almost done!
So my question is,

What is a good devotional book?
