Flood and a Half

My bathroom sink looks a little like this when my daughter washes her hands for the millionth time....water filling over the sink onto the counter, and starting to fill up the floor....only on an amazingly smaller level.

I want to share with you an e-mail I wrote last night. I thought of anything else to blog about today, but this is all that's on my heart. So here it is.

Do you REMEMBER when everything just made sense all of a sudden with me and my life was transformed and my nose was in that bible every spare minute? I remember VERY WELL a few times that you asked me about becoming luke-warm in the Lord. That an "experienced Christian" knows what to do and say, and the passion fades. A few months ago, I had finally decided how big God was - and in my box he sat. Then Andy - out of nowhere our lives AND that pointless little box were shattered. And I found myself clinging to Him again. But, I will tell you this - I fear my routine, and I fear that box being glued back together for Him to sit in. I fear. That is the LAST place I want to be again, and I sit here and cry now as I read this because I am already beginning to tell Him how big He really is. What. Is. My. Problem?

Stir it up in my heart, a passion for Your name. This is no longer a "dry spell". It is my problem. Trying to honor God in dirty diapers and dishes, gardening and Windex, Barney books and responsibilities. I guess my question is, how do I get that passion I so vividly remember from 2002? Journaling and reading The Book have a way of keeping my heart "interested", but. I. want. fire!
