Starting again!!

It's been quite a while since I have done anything, so I am going to try this again! I wonder how my friends find time to do this. I tried one on myspace, but I have decided to cancel my MySpace account, because I love Facebook!!! I have found many of my friends on there, it's great to reconnect, and you don't have to pay for it like you do on classmates! My next door neighbor has a really cute blog. She teaches and has girls that are super involved in soccer. So much so, that we hardly ever see them! So, if she can do this, so can I!

So, today, I know that I have a lot on my plate. However, I thought that if I wrote it all out, that it would help me get organized. I was going to go to kickboxing today, because that's pretty much the only time I have for myself, but Natalie decided to take an early nap. So, number one on my list is to get on the treadmill. I have to get these last 10 pounds of baby weight off, so I can get into my jeans by the time cooler weather sets in. Then, I have a TON of laundry and cleaning to do, because it seems that no matter what I do, I still manage to get behind. However, as I sit here and put all this on a list, I am reminded of a short video we watched in Sunday School last week. It's actually been on my mind all week, but unfortunately I have failed at doing what I know God wants of me.

We talked last Sunday about tithing our time and giving our first fruits to God. It's only taken me 4 nights of being woken up between 4:30 and 5:30 by Natalie being hungry (which is unusual because she's been sleeping through the night for 7 weeks now) to realize that I could have and should have been doing my quiet time then. It's just like giving our tithe at church. When we give our first fruits financially, God ALWAYS manages to meet our financial needs, WITHOUT FAIL! I know, because my family has experienced both sides of tithing and not tithing! Most days, I seem to run out of time. I don't stay focused on what I need to be doing and I get sidetracked easily! I don't prioritize and I put things off until the very last minute, and that gets me into trouble. Then, it seems to spiral out of control. I am juggling all of these balls up in the air, and by the end of the day, I have dropped them all. Not only have I put God on the back burner, but I have tried to take control of everything and lost focus on the One and only thing that matters. So, this I hope will keep me accountable of that, because I'd love to tell each of you what God is doing in my life! I am so excited about some things that I am involved in, so keep checking in, because I am learning a lot!!!
