Back at it

Today I am going backwards... in a good way.  You see before we moved I had been doing really well with finding time for the important stuff, things like having a daily quiet time, working out, logging my food (which is the only way I can eat healthy - otherwise I magically forget that I just had a piece of chocolate and proceed to eat another one) then we moved and everything just sort of stopped.  I got back to my daily quiet time pretty quickly but the working out and eating well was another story.  The kids were perpetually sick which meant no childcare at the gym for them which meant riding the bike in the basement (which I loathe) and we were cooped up.  I don't like winter.  At first I love boots and sweaters and then about two weeks in to it, I am over it.  Well, winter is almost done and I feel mentally better than I have in a while.  A little sunshine does that for me.  So, now I am going back to what is important.  FYI - clean floors do not make that list but games of Candyland with Emelia do.  Dust free bookshelves do not make the list but puzzles with Sam do.  Gourmet meals do not make the list but healthy choices in the crock pot do.   Frankly I am sick of focusing on what is not getting done and I am going to focus on what is getting done.  Yes world I am on it today!  The memory verse I have selected for this week is this.  1Corinthians 6: 19-20 "Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God?  You are not your own, you were bought at a price.  Therefore, honor God with your body."  Jeff is gone this week so I have the chance to surrender everything and rely solely on God's abundant power through me.  (I also have the chance to have cereal from breakfast every night.)   I am taking God up on both offers!
