Still running for the cheese (or why this blog still exists)

As my regular readers can tell, this has been a dry year for me. Just look at the number of posts this year vs. 2008! Awhile back, I had considered either shutting down the Maze, or starting a new blog that would more accurately reflect where I am in life now. Truth be told, sometimes I come here, look around, and feel distinctly hypocrytical about the things I want to write. I'm sure I'm not the only one to ever be in that kind of place.
As the time in between posts has grown longer, I came to realize something. Without the past years' material, where I am now makes very little sense. What good is the destination without the journey? As Christians, so much of the best stuff that happens to us is in the times God is molding us to His image. To throw away the evidence of that process would somehow cheapen the result, I think.
So, here we are, dear friends. I think my little mousie may just have rounded a corner finally. Some things will change around here to reflect the changes in my heart. And you know what? That's ok. As much as I typically rage against anything changed in my life, I'm learning to accept the God-given ones. My prayer is that some of you may be encouraged by what you read here. Hey, you may even be challenged. And of course, if you know me, then you know you always stand a good chance of being offended too. Not intentionally, to be sure! Just know that what you find as you wander this Maze with me may surprise you as much as it does me.

All that to say this:

Monday Meme

Another week, another donut. It's Monday, and somehow I feel like the week is already over! Man, having the blahs sucks.

Anyway, Cat has cooked up some more yummy meme goodness. Here we go!
1) What one thing in your life best represents freedom to you? Mr. P. Honestly. He pulled me out of my nasty home life when I was a teenager, and that was true freedom.
2) What musical piece makes you feel contemplative? Surrender by Barlow Girl. Lyrically, it really speaks of where I am now, where I have been in the last year, and where I'm afraid of going in the future.

3) What is your biggest pet peeve? Mr. P. not picking up after himself. Makes me wanna gouge my eyes out so I don't have to look at it. Seriously though, it just overwhelms me. What I mean is that since I have myself and the kids to pick up after, having to do things like close up the bread and make sure any perishables are put away after he makes a sandwich just kinda break this camel's back. Mentally speaking.
4) Would the world be better off if it was run by a global government? Ermmm maybe? At least we'd be one step closer to Jesus coming back. LOL.
5) Show and Tell. What comes to mind first when you see this picture? Or, tell a story if it reminds you of one.

Well, I just joined LA Fitness last month, so it makes me think of that. And that I really need to go waddle on the treadmill tomorrow. So that means I should go shower soon. Hmmm, maybe that's TMI.

Til next squeak,

3 Squeaks from the Maze:

Thanks for sharing the Barlow Girl video. I needed it this morning.

Love them anyway. Do you like their song, Never Alone? That's one of my favs.

Mrs. P. said...

I just love them in general. I used to have scenes from Kingdom Hearts set to Let Go on my MySpace.
Yes, I am a dork. I claim it and own it.

Lori Watson said...

I am a big dork too and that sounds cool! Is that on Youtube somewhere? Love Kingdom Hearts, love Barlow Girl. Maybe I should go search Youtube myself. ;-)
