The pizza was delicious, the kale salad was also delicious, the beer was much needed. Oh, and delicious. I enjoyed an Evolution Primal Pale Ale and a Brother David’s Triple. Sometimes, beer just makes everything okay.
I patched the cracks in the drywall in the dining room and will sand them down tomorrow afternoon and then Thursday, I paint! Yes, dammit. I paint! I am determined that a fresh coat of paint will brighten up that area in exactly the way I need right now. I’m going with a very pale silvery white and am still dithering on that accent wall. I need to talk to a Anilia about glazing stripes …
I’m trying to stay positive and focus on the fact that SuperCindy WILL come back in time, just slightly transformed and in a good way. In the meantime, I’m just keepin’ on keepin’ on. Expressing my frustrations and sadness when I have them and rejoicing in the goodness when it comes my way.
For example, speaking of goodness, on Sunday I went to church in Towson with a friend. I’m a liturgical kind of girl but I really enjoyed the freedom of their contemporary service. And the music. Oh man, the music! Let me just say there was a full praise band (guitars, bass, drums, piano, lead and harmony vocals) and they played the most rockin’ version of “How Great Thou Art” that had me throwing my hands in the air and trembling. My friend pointed it out to me and asked, “Are you gonna be okay,” because she knows that any version of “How Great Thou Art” will bring me to my knees by the end of the third verse so it’s probably a good thing that we stopped after the second.
All I can say is, “then sings my soul?” You motherfucking bet it did! I let out one hell of an AMEN after the prayer following that. Then the preacher preached on my favorite passage from the bible, 1 Peter 5:8-11 and said all of the things I needed to hear. I will be restored! This, too, shall pass! I was so moved after communion that I sat with my eyes closed for the rest of the service and prayed. Deeply. It was so incredible. God is good! No matter how you get to him, GOD IS GOOD!
Alright, I know I got a bit “churchy” there, as Matt likes to call it, but that’s been a joy for me this week and I’m holding onto that!
