Okay, so I know I haven’t had a “real” post in a long time. I feel like I have stuff going on but, it is not enough to have a full post about and if it is do people really care? So lets see. Somethings that have been going on….
Well, I started the “One Year Bible” on Jan. 1st. It is the 11th and I have read everyday so far. I know that is not a long time but for me it is. I read something the other day that I have to share. You know when you read something from the bible and it speaks to you that you just want to shout it out to everyone so they can understand that GOD is awesome and you can find peace with him. Especially when you know several people are going thru a hard time.
Psalm 9: 9-10
The LORD is a refuge for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble.
Those who know your name will trust in you, for you, LORD, have never forsaken those who seek you.
Big Man and I are also going to be doing a “Paint By Numbers” -2 Class at church. The first one was great and really helps springboard your walk and relationship with the Lord. It has been a slow walk for me. You hear about people becoming Christians and they are so hungry and eager to learn anything and everything and immerse themselves into Gods Word, but for me I am hesitant. I mean, I’m a believer and a Christian but there is a wall there for some reason. I don’t see the wall, I don’t know why the wall is there but I know it is there and I’m trying to break thru it and grow as a Christian. I don’t want to be one of those Christians that has been a believer for 20+ years and still be a “baby” in my walk.
I also went to my first ZUMBA class last night and it was pretty fun. Pretty hard too because this momma is OUT-OF-SHAPE. But if you know me well enough you know that Fatty can dance too! I think this is probably one of the best things that I personally can do because it mentally doesn’t feel like a workout. I went with two of my best friends and that helped too. They are going to be my motivation. I’m one of those people where it is all about getting there. Once I’m there I will do it and I will enjoy it but it is getting up and getting there when I can be hanging out at the house with Big and Little in a warm house when it is freezing out or can we really afford the cost of it, ect, ect!
Also, Friends, If you don’t have any go get you some, not just any friend either. The type that feel like family, the ones that even though you saw them yesterday you are excited to see them and at the same time the type that you haven’t seen in a couple of weeks but when you do see each other it was just like yesterday. They can make the world of difference. Lately my life has been brighter then ever, not only because of my walk with the Lord but because of the wonderful, inspiring and fun-loving friends that God has surrounded me with. I don’t know if it is because we have all had more opportunity to spend more time with each other and our friendship has grown or if we all realized how important each other was that we are putting more the effort and want to spend time with each other more. Either way I can’t imagine my life without them.
See, not enough of one thing for a full post and probably nothing that people really care about in the first place. Either way it is out there and I feel better!
