Welcome to Monday, my dear!
It's no lie that I have put this little blog of mine on the back burner! Every time I sit down to type, I remember the loads of laundry awaiting me or the people in my life who need encouraging. God has led me to focus all of my time and energy on the people in my life right now but that doesn't mean I have forgotten about all of you! I am going to be more diligent about coming to you whenever the Lord gives me some time during the week. Forgive me? I knew you would!
+ Last Tuesday, I started Testimony Tuesdays, a new series about our life stories & how God has saved us and changed us. Last week, you heard my story. Tomorrow, you will hear from a fellow blogger so be on the lookout!
+ I totally dropped the ball on Wifey Wear Wednesday. It's SO HARD to spend hours every Tuesday or Wednesday getting ready, setting up my tripod, getting decent photos, and then posting them. I thought I could do it but it kinda crashed & burned. But guess what? Grace. It's not the end of the world & personally, I think that Testimony Tuesday is a lot more important anyway! I mean what is cooler than sharing how the Creator of the universe saved and redeemed souls? Nothing, friends!
+ I have been so loving life. No, it isn't any easier or less complication. But that's the beauty of it! God has placed people in our lives that we have the opportunity to love.. how amazing is that!? It's amazing to watch God at work! My husband and I started this weekly dinner at our home called "Potato Tuesdays" where we have people over to eat & talk about what Jesus is doing in our lives. There is so much stuff going on in my life and I know that there is in yours as well but, friend, I encourage you to lay them down at the feet of Jesus and ask Him to give you opportunities to help and love people. Like my dear friend and Small Group leader said last night, "People are Important." People are important! Everything else can wait. People & their souls are so important to God and they should be to us too!
+ A few weeks ago, I shared my word of the year. I chose two actually. Awareness & Obedience. I want to be more aware of the enemy's attacks & more obedient to what God is calling me to do or say or write or think!
Do you have a one word or a few resolutions for the new year? I would love to hear about them if you do!
What have you been up to lately?
You are loved!
