G'mornin mom and Christin!

My two devoted followers whom have both mentioned its time to blog something new again ;) and so here I sit with my new (woo!) iPad and thought I'd write a little post for y'all.

The children and I have decided it would do us a great deal of good to observe lent this year. For several reasons, the most important of course being the desire to strip all things bare and fully re-focus on Christ. So, seeing as the hubs and I have already given up on sugar, salt, caffeine, and processed foods in general, I decided my observance of lent would not giving up another thing (to be  honest I wasn't sure what else there was!) but instead to make a priority of Christ in my life. Instead of getting up and hopping on my computer..or iPad as the case may be... I would instead pick up the  Word and begin my day with Him. The kids decided to give up tv during the day, so no more netflix during school time...I was thrilled when they decided in this one...yes I could have told them to just  do that, but was thankful when it came from them, their decision.

Do we have a problem with TV during the day, no, but there are times when I'm tired and should say no more than I here we go! Bring in the books ...even more!

Today I read this verse and it'll stick a with me as I go about my day today, maybe for you too!

' For we are the aroma of Christ to God among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing, to one a fragrance from death to death, to the other a fragrance from life to life.' 2 Corinthians 2:15

  1. Good for you! Praying you grow more deeply in your walk with Him during this time!
    I get the part about the tv too. Not a real problem here either but oh so easy to not say 'no' when you are tired! ;)
