Good Morning!

Seek to please Me above all else.  Let that goal be your focal point as you go through this day.  Such a mind-set will protect you from scattering your energy to the winds.  The free will I bestowed on you comes with awesome responsibility.  Each day presents you with choice after choice.  Many of these decisions you ignore and thus make by default.  Without a focal point to guide you, you can easily lose your way.  That’s why it is so important to stay in communication with Me, living in thankful awareness of My Presence.

You inhabit a fallen, disjointed world, where things are constantly unraveling around the edges.  Only a vibrant relationship with Me can keep you from coming unraveled too.”

Matthew 6:33 “But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.”

John 8:29 “And he who sent me is with me.  He has not left me alone, for I always do the things that are pleasing to him.”

Colossians 3:23-24 “Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward.  You are serving the Lord Christ.”

Good morning!  It is a beautiful morning too.  I (finally) pried my eyes open at 7:30 and BOY am I glad I did!  I was up before the sun rose all the way, I did a wonderful 20 minute morning yoga video (Yoga with Adriene–she is awesome!), and I washed my hair and did my devotions and prayed and now I feel SUPER happy and energized and I haven’t even eaten yet!  So that’s always good!

It has been a while, I know.  My mind and focus has been on so many other things!  Not only has life been busy and moving all around, but I physically and mentally have been out of it; very out of it.  I can’t even tell you how much yoga helps me, and I know that sounds crazy, but it really feels good to stretch and move at a slow pace, and yoga works you!  It’s not a bunch of simple poses.  It’s hard!

So, this morning I have to write quick because I need to leave in about 30 minutes and I have some things to do before I leave.  It has been a year since I got a pixie hair cut!  Can you believe that?  I am going to do a post sharing some “before and NOW” pics, so stay tuned if you haven’t given up on me already. 🙂

Well, have a beautiful and blessed day!  It’s already Thursday (I can’t believe it)!  This mornings devotion from Jesus Calling (above) was very encouraging to me.  It usually is especially if I pray before hand and ask God to reveal his word and his promises to me.  He is so good.

Much love and I will write soon!!!

New Room

Hello!  It has been a crazy couple of weeks.  I feel like it has been so busy, but this past week I was home almost every day.  I’m just extremely tired and I wish I wasn’t, but I have been!

Anyway, today (happy Labor Day!  Thank you all for your hard work!) my sister Sarah and I are fixing up and finishing my room!  YAYAYAYAYAYYA!!!!! 😀

My room is very small, but I love it.  It’s a perfect square, I get to see the sunrise and have the morning sunshine in my room every day and it has high ceilings which makes it feel even bigger then it is!  The walls of my room where blue on the bottom half and then a really light yellow on the top half with a pretty little nursery wallpaper border separating the two colors, but when I moves in and we declared that I would be staying in this room we painted the whole was the really light yellow color, and I just haven’t been satisfied!  So, it is now going to be blue…

I LOVE it so much!  I have never gotten so excited about a color before!

It’s so exciting to finally be doing something.  I have lived so much thinking about doing these things and to actually do it is invigorating!

Even this simple act of painting the wall a new color is just so wonderful and I can’t wait to finish it.  Oh, and I’ve painted it all so far with just a paint brush…he he he…I was a bit eager to start.

There has been so much going through my mind right now on so many different levels.  I wish there was someone I could talk to who could answer all of these thoughts and questions I have.  I guess I will just need to continue to trust in God for guidance and contentment and answers.  I don’t know.  That was a random though, but I was building up to say that I have been wanting to post all of these different posts but whenever I sit down and write them out I get discouraged, which is probably just the evil one trying to stop me from saying what I want to say and sharing what is on my heart.  I must overcome this weakness because I have come to find out that I may be small or shy compared to some, but I am a person who cares and who wants honestly and truth and justice to prevail and who is quite tired of keeping to myself and not speaking when I feel the urge to.

I hope everyone has or has had a wonderful Labor Day weekend.  I now urge everybody reading this to pray for our country, pray for those you know who are not saved, and to go out and be light in your environment even if you’re having a crappy day or are over dealing with certain people.  Our job is to shine brightly and share the love of our Lord and Savior with the people around us.  Our own struggles and worries and annoyances, even though they are troublesome and aggravating, are nothing in this world.  We can worry and fear and want everyone around us to disappear, but what are we accomplishing?  So, pray and seek the Lord and go out and be a burning light eager, ready and willing to profess the Gospel to people and make the world a brighter one.

God bless and much love, always.
