Be Grateful Challenge~ July 26, 2012

A quiet morning; a beautiful night storm; praying and fasting; letting go; learning His will; upcoming church trip; being good enough by just being me; loving God; knowing that it could be so perfect and it being okay that it may never happen;  boy kisses; morning boy sweetness; the hope of a new Boy Scout Troop for my boy; the kneeding and pulling at my heart and my soul as He shows me what matters; the boy home from the last day of ESY and his sweet smile; 

Patience in the Lord

I sit in here and there... 
and I do this and that... 
and I wonder when... 
when will it all finally come together? 
I have a plan... 
My plan always gives Him a chuckle! 
  Sometimes my plan gives Him a full belly laugh! 
And then I remember to pray and fast and seek His will... 
The praying and fasting is a trial, but it is good... 
And when He takes something/ someone away from me it's because He says I deserve better... 
And yet that is sometimes very hard to deal with... 
the letting go and starting over His way. 
And I pray and fast and ask myself, "do I do these things to make him happy 
OR 
to make Him happy?" 
And I think that is what this fast is about~ following Him to him. Following Him so that he can find me and so that he has to follow Him to see me. 
Isn't that the path I wanted anyways? 
The path I was on before it all got so convoluted into pleasing him. 
Back when every step I took on the homestead was for His purpose. 
And so, 
I head back to that path. 
The right path.

Drying Clothes Indoors


As money gets tighter, it's always good to have a few cards up your sleeve to help you save money. One of my favorites is avoiding using the dryer.
While it's always nicest to hang laundry outside, it's also good to have a back-up plan.
When it's just too rainy to hang out laundry, I simply pop it on hangers and hang it in my doorways!
