2014 Life Verse

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct your path. Proverbs 3:5-6

Tuesday, January 24, 2012


Every year, I make resolutions.  Every year come February, I break them.  So this year, I have decided not to make resolutions, but to make decisions.  Decisions that I will stand by throughout the year.  Decisions that will benefit me, that will enable me to become a better person, and that will bring me further in my walk with the Lord.

I will read the Word everyday.  Even if it is only 1 verse.  I will read it. 
I will pray every day.  Even if it is while I am folding laundry, washing dishes, or just sitting still.
I will strive to be a better wife.  Even if it means doing something I really don't like.
I will strive to be a better mother.  Even if that means playing with Play-doh or watching Drake and Josh.
I will strive to be a better friend.  Even if that means hearing the same story again and again and giving the same advice again and again.
I will not think of myself as much.  Even if that means no more scrapbooking supplies for a while.
I will get out of debt.  Even if that means not going to the movies or out to eat as much.

These are things that I have decided to do to make my life better.  These are decisions that I can stick to.  These are not resolutions that can be broken.  These are decisions that I have purposed in my heart to uphold.

21 Day Facebook Fast

So, it has been 24 days and last night, day 23, I went on FB for the first time since I began to fast it.  I played a couple games, caught up on some news, wished a few ppl HB and signed out.  I was a total of 1 hour.  Not bad.  You know, I have come to the conclusion that I really didn't miss it. 

While fasting FB, I was able to do 14 scrapbook layouts, make about 80 cards for three swaps, organize pictures, and even do a little housework.  I spent more time with Kierstynne and Tim.  I also spent time reading the Word and praying, which was the main goal of this whole fasting thing.  It has actually been good not being on FB. 

I will continue to catch up on the news, play a few games and such, but I have made it a point to only spend 2 hours max a day on FB.  I am determined to stick to it.
