The best thing about Tuesdays!

What a great day of the week! I spend my morning and early part of the afternoon with my lovely friend Jenny. Elena and her daughter Scarlett enjoy a nice long play date and I get to also enjoy time with their beautiful baby girl Eden. Oh how I live for the fun if Tuesdays each week!

This week we also started spending time in Gods Word. Our plan is to share what God is teaching us throughout the previous week.

Today Jenny shared this with me. It's from 2 Corinthians 3:4-6.

"Such is the confidence that we have through Christ toward God. Not that we are sufficient in ourselves to claim anything as coming from us, but our sufficiency is from God, who has made us competent to be ministers of a new covenant, not of the letter but of the Spirit. For the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life."

This verse challenged me a lot today.

I tend to be pretty down on myself. I have often struggled with feelings of failure. Right now I realize that my sufficiency MUST come from God. M…

'twas a good day :)

I am aiming at posting once a week. It has been nice to just enjoy writing my thoughts down again. I used to blog so much, but since I made this blog public I have had a lot less to say. Funny how that works.

Hmmmm....

Today I went to IKEA. It was a lot of fun. I got a few great ideas for ways I want to decorate my home.

I decided that I am going to focus on one room at a time. I am starting small. The room I am working on currently is my guest bathroom. I bought some deep purple rugs at Target. I already have some latte colored towels and a curtain in the same shade. I may pick up some purple towels to mix in for more pop. I am also trying to decide what color to paint the walls. I think I want to install some shelves over the toilet too. I saw some cool ones at IKEA today. On the opposite wall I am thinking of some sort of picture and hooks for towels since I will be removing the rod for the shelves.



It is still coming together. I am just enjoying myself with it. :) I have not rea…

Life....

It's been good lately. I started a new bible study by Nancy Leigh DeMoss called Choosing Gratitude. I am really excited about it. I think it will be perfect for where I currently am in my life. I was going to sign up for a study on James too, but I decided against it. I want to focus on 1 study at a time.

I am also very encouraged lately about a couple of the friendships that I have been cultivating this past couple of months! I really think that 2012 is the beginning of my growing in my fellowship with fellow married ladies. :) I have also connected with friends that are moms. It has been so great to connect more with women who are seeking the Lord in how to be wives and mothers that honor God. We are also getting into the Word together! I have such a desire for growth in my friendships. This is going to be great!!!!!!

Yup. I have really been encouraged and blessed. Thank you Lord!

Work has been going well. I am working one less day each week, but that is ok. I will use that morn…

Are the dog days over for me?

Lately, I have struggled a bit with feelings of loneliness. It isn't the most comfy thing for me to admit on a public forum such as the Internet, but I hesitate to keep it to myself for fear that I won't open myself to overcoming it. Truth is, I am fairly antisocial. Who am I kidding! I doubt people have a hard time believing it. I am however making strides to change this.
I am purposing to bond myself to other believers that can help my walk with Christ grow stronger. I have a major need for friends that will actively challenge me as a Christian. I don't want to be a passive believer, but someone who is like Jesus. He cared about people, challenged them, treated them with respect and dignity, NEVER compromised and He lead without fear.
Just this week God answered my prayer for a friend. Don't get me wrong, I have wonderful friends, but I have prayed for a few years for a friend close to my age who is a ministers wife, with young children, who has had to step back from …
