As of Late... a monthly meme


I participated in this meme a couple months ago and came across it again today on Joanne Sher's blog, An Open Book.  She mentioned how she really loves the introspection it causes and I have to agree. We could all use some of that from time to time.

Below, I'll share my list." I encourage you to play along. I'd love to know what you've been doing/thinking/ of late.

Lately...I've been learning to crave God...not food.

Lately...I've been devouring books, and loving every minute.

Lately...I realize more than ever the importance of words.

Lately...the reality of just how brief our time on earth is has hit close to home.

Lately...God has spoiled me way beyond what I deserve. patience is being tested big time.

Lately...I've been appreciating good friends, peanut butter, and sunshine.

So what about you? What's happening in your life lately?

Lately . . . I've learned that enrolling in college, at any age, is a lesson in patience.

Lately . . . I've been struck by the truth of the statement, "You don't have to look far to find someone in a worse situation."

Lately . . . I've appreciated the wonders of the online social networks in keeping family and friends living afar, close.

I really enjoy this meme. It sure appears like we're on a similar path. I plan to post my thoughts in a couple days.

I read this meme on Jo's blog yesterday, too, and all day today, I've been thinking "as of late, I've been...."

I guess it's time to write some of them down and play along. :)

Hi Lynda... heart is aching for the people in Japan.

Lately...I feel a touch of spring in the air. has been so much fun to decorate for Easter.

Lately...I've been feeling overwhelming gratitude for so many good things.

Lately...sacrificing some things I like, during "Lent," has felt good.

Lately...doing things for others, in a quiet way, has brought much happiness.

Love these. Sounds like we've all been learning a thing or two. Looking forward to reading yours, Julie.

Lately...the sunshine makes me feel like a better person.

Lately...I've been eating way too much chocolate!
