Because I’m not very smart

So I wrote a brief post that was supposed to go up yesterday about how I was taking a brief break from the blog this week. And then I set it to auto-post.

For next week.

Which really doesn’t help at all for explaining my absence this week.


But it all worked out because I wanted to let you know that my friend Lysa Terkeurst has a new book out. It’s called Unglued.

Unglued Book

Here’s a brief description:

God gave us emotions to experience life, not destroy it! Lysa TerKeurst admits that she, like most women, has had experiences where others bump into her happy and she comes emotionally unglued. We stuff, we explode, or we react somewhere in between. What do we do with these raw emotions? Is it really possible to make emotions work for us instead of against us? Yes, and in her usual inspiring and practical way, Lysa will show you how. Filled with gut-honest personal examples and biblical teaching, Unglued will equip you to: Know with confidence how to resolve conflict in your important relationships. Find peace in your most difficult relationships as you learn to be honest but kind when offended. Identify what type of reactor you are and how to significantly improve your communication. Respond with no regrets by managing your tendencies to stuff, explode, or react somewhere in between. Gain a deep sense of calm by responding to situations out of your control without acting out of control.

Of course my emotions are never out of control. Says the girl who’s been known to cry because HEB doesn’t have any ripe avocados and I really wanted guacamole.

I think as women we all struggle with having the proper response to situations and not letting our emotions take over. And that’s why I wanted y’all to know about Lysa’s new book.

And also to let you know that I may be taking a brief break for the rest of the week. Or maybe not.

I’ll see how I feel.

    This looks like a book I could use right about now! The emotions of dealing with a 23 year old man/son is…… well, no words. I’m up in the middle of the night with worry. How to love and not try to control? How to step back and let the consequences play out? Yep, raw emotions!

    Enjoy some time off.

    Wow!! Thank you. After a very emotional day yesterday and today it has not been my finest hour. Thank you again.

    Permission to take a break, granted! But just know….you are missed when you’re not here!

    And girl…..never should any store be out of ripe avacados! Curses!

    The women’s group I’m in is going to start reading Unglued next month. I have the book already but am waiting until then to begin reading it. I can’t wait! I NEED this book!
    Enjoy your time off. Today is my bday and I’m really wishing I would have taken the day off from work. Would love to be home with hubby and the kids :(
