So, I finally did what I’d been promising myself and the God and Goddess that I would do for several weeks – I finally got my altar put back up. I’m so ashamed that it took so long. I’m thankful that They don’t hold grudges. When I set up my alter and spent my time meditating, I got that always overwhelming sense of peace that always comes. Even after twelve years, I still am humbled and surprised by the wonder of it. I guess it comes from the way I looked at it all when I was attempting to be a Christian. I was angry and confused, so I saw God/Deity as angry and judgmental (I’m sure not all of that was simply me…there is a reason I left the church I was at before I took the first steps away from Christianity). But I was reminded that such ideas are not the ideas of Deity, but of men. Deity is love. The overwhelming message I got? Silly girl, did you really think We’d be mad? And isn’t that wonderful?
After that, I was energized and ready to come write about my revelations that morning. So I came downstairs to hop on the computer…only for it to die. I mean, like no response, no boot, nothing. It still won’t start and it makes me sad, since it’s my laptop that I’ve had for years. But that’s the problem. It’s freaking old. But, luckily, we finally figured out what was wrong with the other laptop – the one that was shutting itself off for no good reason. If it has a fan, the fan isn’t working. But I figured out if I sat here freezing my butt off (or, more specifically, my legs), it won’t overheat, or turn off. ^__^
Of course, it took a full day for me to break down and try this other computer. Which is really freaking embarrassing. But I had to, because I had to share my Joshwa’s awesome news. My Joshwa found out last night he’s getting his promotion soon! His raise and all will go into effect next Friday! Yay! We’ve been kinda worried about it – not that he’d get the job, but how long it would take to go through. Now, he still has to wait for an even higher-up to be at work (probably Saturday) to make the official offer, but that’s just a matter of formality. I’m so proud of him, I could burst. ^__^
Well, that’s all for now. I’ve been up all night (though I doubt I’ll actually sleep any time soon), so I can’t think of anything else. Of course, if I do think of something, I’ll be back. In the mean time, brightest blessings always!
