Am I a failure at fanciful freedom? Himself left for a trip Wednesday morning and I have had very little free time to myself. The truth is The Boy is around way too much. Waaaaay too much. TV and video games make noise in what could be my quiet haven. Heavy sigh.
At my women’s group, I wished for a "cloak of invisibilty." In his book "Piercing the Darkness," Frank Peretti describes how angels use their wings to cloak a person in protection so that her enemies can not see her. How cool would it be to be able to become invisible when you see trouble coming your way. Or circumstances you would rather avoid:
"Honey! I need a haircut!" Pop. Invisible.
"Mom! What’s for dinner?" Whoosh. Gone with the wind.
"Want to go visit…" Nope. Don’t turn your head or I might disappear. I have a book to finish before the library starts to charge me fines.
However, I do sense the angelic protection given to me by my heavenly father; when we come so close to having an accident that could only be stopped by a heavenly intermediary. I see it each time Isabella has a "near miss" coming so close to hitting her head on something she has fallen close to. If I choose to I experience it when I pray and give strength to the angelic army sent to protect His own.
A cloak of invisibility would be cool. However, I will try to be content with the protection God has so graciously given me.
Are you able to be in a home without having noise around (tv, radio, etc.)? It used to be that I couldn’t. I didn’t want to deal with my own thoughts. Now, though, it is a good thing.
How often would you like to have time to yourself? Every day. For at least a few hours. Delicious.
Do you like to talk on the phone? Why or why not? Not really. It’s hard for me to just sit and pay attention without doing something with my hands. Sometimes I have to play solitaire on the pc to be able to pay attention or clean the kitchen. I’d much rather visit in person.
Do you sometimes go to "another place" and realize you haven’t heard a thing going on around you for a while? Yes. It’s not something I can will myself to do. It just happens sometimes.
You are not there. Where are you? In Texas with my baby bro and his bride. I want so badly to hug them!
How was your week? Looking forward to seeing your falderal answers. gail
