Hi Girls! Thanks for stopping by today, it is certainly nice to have you! Isn't Rachel Anne great? I know that every morning I look forward to checking in on what is going on for us today! This being said, I have slacked a little on my Small Things this week(although, now I am totally KICKING myself since I've learned what the high points prize is-awesome!!!) I have been putting out fires this week, it seems. I try not to live like that, but sometimes. well, you know how it is! We've had a flurry of activity this week. On top of that, I'm feeling foggy-brained, and so I've been running around getting last minute details finished that I overlooked ): Last Friday night, we had a birthday party for one side of the family, and Saturday night we had the other. In between, we had a Grand Prix (hot wheels) at our church. I taught Sunday School Sunday morning, and Tuesday was Hutch's Birthday party at Preschool. Tomorrow I have a Gifted By God brunch at church (which is exploring our Spiritual Gifts-SOOO excited!!!), John and I have a 30th birthday party for a co-worker of his in the evening, and I teach Sunday School and sing in church on Sunday morning (I am singing Wonderful, Merciful Savior, which I am very excited about), Haydn and Hutch have a program for an Assisted Living Center in the afternoon, and I have church nursery in the evening!!
The Birthday Boy!
I try to guard our time, as I feel that, as a society, we are over-booked. Well, as hard as I try to not be involved in everything, we are always busy busy, it seems!
I stumbled on a blog this week called Like A Warm Cup of Coffee, and have been intrigued by a club called the 5:16 club. Long story short, there is another website that links from that, and there is a series about the 6 Habits of the Highly Effective Woman. Number 1 is She Rises Early. To say that I struggle with this is an understatement!!! I am a chronic snooze hitter! To be in this club, you get up at 5:16 in the morning and spend quiet time with God FIRST! (5:16 comes from Ephesians 5:16-which talks about redeeming time. so cool.)
I am going to try this for a week and see how it goes! I'm very excited, and will let you know next week how it went, and what changes I saw in my life! Thank you for sharing a cuppa with me! Sorry I've rambled a little!
