I had a walk with Kris today and near the end of it I was overwhelmed by the fact the God cares enough about me to be concerned about my day. How I spend my time, how often I think of Him and sadly how often I don't think of Him. Some things she said really rang true to me but they are still circulating in my brain and heart and I am not sure I have grasped everything well enough to put it down. Its kind of like a secret...something I am working on with the Lord in my heart.
Ladies out there who are reading this, namely Elisabeth, Holli, Sarah, and Malia. I cannot encourage you enough to find a woman who is married and emulates the character you desire to be someday. Make sure she is a godly woman with children that love the Lord and one who honors her husband, spends time in the word, and so on. When you find her don't let her go until you have picked her brain for solid advice and council! Put her in your speed dial and call her when you are about to explode and need a word of wisdom! I think Kris unwittingly fell into this position for me (poor woman!) But you will be so blessed. Encourage your men to do the same with a man they admire. Men need council and advice from other men just as much as we women do from each other.
I hope that someday I will find some 20 something girl like me who needs advice about marriage and children and husbands. I hope I will be able to sweep her up and just let her bask in the fact that she will always be beloved by the Lord. Show her ways to be honoring to her husband, ways to save big on groceries, and overall just be that Titus 2:4 woman for her.
So. Yesterday I did not finish my to-do list. Funny how at the end of the day when I went to read my book (It's called "Lies Women Believe and the Truth That Sets Them Free") I opened up to the chapter on time restraints. On how we have so many things we feel like we need to get done everyday when really, the Lord will give us the time to do what he wants us to do in a day. I am still learning this. I need to daily "inquire of the Lord" as to what He has for me daily. What a blessing!
I also didn't have 3 meals yesterday. I had a pop tart, a hard boiled egg, and a latte. And some peanut butter balls dipped in chocolate...but anyways the point is I have made myself eat breakfast and lunch today, I am well on my way to having a 3 meal day. This doesn't happen often! It is going to be a habit soon though, I have it on my list everyday to eat three meals. Is that funny to you? Because some people who were looking over my to-do list yesterday were teasing me quite a lot about the "eat three meals" part. Oh well! I thought it was necessary...
So I am going to do my dishes from lunch!
