Some friends have ask me where I disappeared to on FB. I have "liked" FB from time to time because I was able to reconnect with people. However, I see way more negatives about FB than positives. That is just my opinion and I could harp on it for hours, but it is like politics and religion, could be debated forever. I decided to deactivate for a little while and to my surprise, it took 2 days before I thought about doing a "FB check". That tells you how much I really thought about it. So.... I am going to stay off for a little while. Jeremy and I laugh and joke that it should be called "Fake book" b/c so many people post all these wonderful things happening, but never truly post what is going on in life. We get good laughs about it, but anyways, I am still here.... just not on FB for awhile.
Charlee Kate has started church choir on Wednesday nights. She loves it! This teacher is the same teacher who teaches her Sunday School. During the choir practice I can go to a bible study with some of the moms which is going to be fabulous! Looking forward to our Wednesday nights. I loved this devotional saying that I am about to post. Funny thing is... this is what I read about in my stress detox and we had in depth discussions on this in Sunday School. We ALL have some area of life that we are struggling with something. This has been a life saver this week! Focus on this thought:
"Dear Lord, I want to follow Your teaching and focus on the blessings You have placed in my life. Please help me learn to look through Your lens and to see today as a new day full of Your mercies. Mercies for me, and mercies for others. In Jesus' Name, Amen."
"So today when I'm tempted to get in a twit and start focusing on something that's wrong, I'll stop myself and say, "but" ... and then start listing things that are right."
Almost Friday... YAY!
This was one of my favorite little dresses on her! She had on the cutest shoes, but this was NOT a good afternoon. I barely got her still, so a smile and shoes, just wasn't going to happen. After dinner, she was a totally different child though! This was Tuesday.... now that it is Thursday, much better!
My sister knows me well! She found this, knowing it would be something to add to my wish list. Love it!
