a little serious

work has taken a turn for the stressful, but i still love it. i never thought i would enjoy working in the court system so much. i just never thought this job would turn into me digging deeper into court cases and having to learn legal terms. i still have yet to fall in love with wearing a tie, but that is ok.
i have also been trying to do some "soul searching". trying to understand God more and find the passion that i once had for serving people. i have kind of lost it. i am not sure if i just have fallen into the trap of living a normal life or just become lazy and hard to the ways of God.
whatever the case maybe... i need to get my act together. a lot of this may have to deal with the fact i am going to be a father soon. it scares me, but i am looking forward to it.
ok.. enough of this serious crap... i had a friend buy pillow shams. SHAMS! what man buys pillow shams? i can't help but laugh at him, but honestly i think he isn't sure what they are used for. i believe he will become annoyed with removing them and putting them back on everyday. next thing he will be buying a shoes that sweep your hardwood floors.
today i am only working half the day. we are closing the office early... so now i am trying to get my mind in gear to do some more yard work. it is really odd.. i find myself daydreaming about what i can do to make my yard better. i need to get some creek bed rocks and some more flowers just to make the yard look alive.. i also need to do some more shoveling of the dog's poo.
i am bored with this blog.

I was struck by your comment:

I find if I slack in my devotions, worship, prayer, Bible reading. . . allow myself to become spiritually weakened, malnourished so to speak then I become much more worldly/fleshly oriented and my spiritual ferver cools. It's a teeter totter (for me anyway) between my fleshly side and spiritual side, as one strengthens the other must necessarily weaken. My passion stays high when I am spiritually strong and well fed. . . the more I eat, the hungrier I become. . .

Be careful. You now recognize that you need to do something and that is a good thing. If you get too malnourished, you cease to care. . .
