On Vapour

It's the time of the year when everything you do feels like a slow trudge uphill. Significant inroads have been made on the upcoming redesign of the <a href="">Ministry of Education's website</a>. It's due for launch 1Q 2008, but has to undergo some <abbr title="Internet Explorer">IE</abbr>-proofing. Thank you, Microsoft, for making web design a lot more tedious than it has to be.
Anne has been acting up lately, waking up in the middle of the night and taking a really long time getting back to sleep. She'd demand that we scratch her "itchiness" (she made that word up for wherever itched), or pat her back ad perpetua.
My prayers have become so mundane, and I'm learning what it means to pray for one's daily bread. It always seems more "right" to pray for things like knowing God better, or growing in His likeness or submitting to His will – the higher, nobler things, but I find myself praying for bread and butter issues like "please help Anne sleep through this night, Faith really needs the sleep". It seems so primitive and base of me, and I wonder if it's a sign my faith has waned, or if God's breaking me down to the bare essentials.
