Scrubbing Day!



The Final Push.


After camp ends, I will have some family members over to visit. So, today was the final push to get things accomplished.


Unfortunately, I don't feel like doing much of anything. ...


We did scrub the floors, hangs some curtains, set up a bed, watch Gone with the wind, and put away some of the clothes. In my opinion, it was a good day!

May your day be enjoyed how ever you spend it.

Lessons Learned...



Life is a lesson...




Currently, I am learning to "Be Content".




In Hebrews Chapter 13:1-6 I was encouraged to remain in the love of Christ, showing Hospitality and in all things to be content of what the Lord has given me.




The Lord, He has blessed me with so many things. However, I have found myself being the host of a pity party for myself. :-/ In order to remove all guests from the pity party I have decided to shout out the greatness of the Lord in my life.




1) A wonderful loving family.
I am so thankful for a family that loves me, and loves the Lord.

2) A loving Husband
If you only knew how wonderful my Christopher is...

3) We were able to buy a 3 bedroom condo...
A HUGE blessing, as I was going nuts in the efficiency we had rented.


4) A great full time job with benefits.
I could go on and on about the blessings.




So, I officially announce that the pity party is over.


I am going to be content with the circumstances and learn to be more openly thankful for the love the Lord has shown to me.

All you need is love...

No, I am not going to break out into an old song by the Beatles.
However, I did run across this quote today and I had this thought as a follow up.

Falling in love is easy; staying in love requires skills...

I must say, in my short 570+ days of marriage I have learned more about myself and more about Christopher then I ever thought possible. I have also learned that maintaining a personal relationship with Christ can be difficult to maintain but sooo with incredible when done!

The skills I have learned to sharpen are the following:
  • Prayer for my Christopher
  • Prayer for my family
  • Prayer for his family
  • Patience
  • Laughter - in all circumstances.
  • A desire to draw nigh to Christ
  • A tongue of praise to my love
  • Love, Love, Love.

I have found the one my soul loveth... (Song of Solomon 3:4)

May my ramblings be an encouragement to someone today.
