Convinced

For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.–Romans 8:38-39

A Few of My Newest Favorite Things

I’m a pen-aholic! I love fun, cute pens and this one makes me want a bowl of frozen sherbet!

Each week, I make out my grocery list and weekly menu on the backs of scrap paper and envelopes (bills). This is way cuter and neat and organized. I’ll still recycle it and write notes on the back…or make paper airplanes with my boy…or origami….I’ll also save these lists so I can repeat my week’s menu sometime when I don’t have time or interest in making out a whole new list!

Procrastination

Procrastination cartoon

“…a habit of procrastination indicates a worship problem: an unwillingness to do the work that God has appointed for us, or an inability to discern what he has given us and what he has not. The procrastinator loves to hoard her time for herself rather than work diligently in it on the errands and tasks God gives her. She would rather blame the chaos outside of her than the chaos in her heart.”

–Staci Eastin in The Organized Heart: A Woman’s Guide to Conquering Chaos (Cruciform Press, 2011)

I went past the field of the sluggard,
past the vineyard of the man who lacks judgment;
thorns had come up everywhere,
the ground was covered with weeds,
and the stone wall was in ruins.
I applied my heart to what I observed
and learned a lesson from what I saw:
A little sleep, a little slumber,
a little folding of the hands to rest—
and poverty will come on you like a bandit
and scarcity like an armed man.

Proverbs 24:30-34
