While I was busy…

..getting my big toe frozen by the podiatrist today, I had some time to think. Firstly, did you know there is a spray that will freeze your toe so someone can use sharp implements to dig deeply into your nailbed? Neither did I. It was an unexpected surprise. Secondly, the freezing actually hurt worst than the digging. This has confirmed for me that I will definitely not be taking up mountain climbing anytime soon. Frostbite would not be a pretty way to go. This led me to my third thought, which was this: I think I’m getting ready to tackle the metaphorical mountain in my life.

I call it Mt. “Figure out what I’m supposed to be when I grow up”. It’s a mouthful, but it’s been ever present for a few years now. If any of you want to spend time fasting, praying, wearing sackcloth, whatever, in order to get an answer for me, I’d appreciate it. God and I have a bet going on who can hold out in silence the longest. So far, He’s winning.


PS I won’t have too many photos to post for a while. Our camera is on leave. I don’t know when to expect it’s return. The photo above is of Mt. Teide in Tenerife.
