After a very pathetic (but delicious) dinner on Tuesday night: Avocado on buttery english muffin. With a side of chips I had at small group. Last night was the only day probably in the past 2 weeks where I didn't have anything I needed to do. And even then, a friend had invited people over for a scrapbooking thing. I wanted to go, but I had just been feeling stressed and worn down lately. So stressed that at work I kind of snipped at my boss about being overworked and the next thing I know he plops this on my desk: He told me to relax and if he wasn't stressed about stuff, I shouldn't be either. Um, yeah, you aren't stressed because you keep giving ME everything to do! Anyway. So last night I decided I needed an "Anne day". I came home. I went for a run. (second run of 2012 and it was hard!) I tidied my messy apartment. I read some of The Lucky One (good! now I want to see the movie!) and I made dinner. I attempted to make my friend Liz's spicy thing from Monday. Mine was pretty good too. But not quite as spicy. I don't know how she does it, but everything Liz makes is just wonderful. I stirfried red peppers (fun fact: has the most vitamin C of any fruit or veggie!), broccoli, onion and garlic. And put it over brown rice and browned ground chicken. And of course topped with this delicious sauce. Yum! And then I decided to make dessert. I had a quart of strawberries that needed to be eaten and some dark belgian chocolates in the freezer since Christmas and so I made: I ate every one. And no, I didn't feel bad. Strawberries = healthy, dark chocolate = sort of healthy. Plus this does not happen every day, and hey I ran 3 miles :) More important, I also finally had time to sit down and work on a letter to Andrew that I've been wanting to write pretty much ever since he moved out. I know it won't change things, but God has been moving in my heart and changing me. I remember someone once told me if you feel the spirit prompting you do to something - you should do it. Because if you fail to, you could miss out on blessings, but even more so, your heart could grow hard towards God and his movings. And I don't want that to be me! And a verse for today: Micah 6:8 He has shown you, O man, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.
