Outside of my window…. the sky is overcast but the birds are all singing a cheerful song of spring. I love being able to have the windows open so that the chorus of birdsongs coming from the woods surrounding our house can be the music that starts my morning. The trees are really starting to bud, which makes me smile.
Around the house…. my girls are playing upstairs and boy are they noisy! Lots of giggling and squealing going on!
The week’s failures…. My mood has been off all week. I have been quick to frustration and easily stressed. My energy levels have been low, which I thought was due to having both of my girlies struggle with sleep issues this week. Last night, as I was laying in bed, I was thinking about the fact that I fell off the “work-out and eat right” wagon about two weeks ago. I fell off and then I think I may have been run over by it as well. I thought about how, when I was working out diligently, my husband mentioned my extra-upbeat attitude on more than one occasion.
To turn this failure into a positive, this morning I woke up and hopped back on the wagon. I finished my turbo Jam workout before eight and can already feel the benefit of endorphins rushing through my body. I need to remember this lessons. Exercise really improves my mood!
Plans for the rest of the week…. I am preparing for a baby shower for a friend on Saturday and my Compassion Sunday at my church the following day. As I have said before, organization is not a natural strong point of mine, so this is a good time to practice making lists and working efficiently to get things done.
Our church is fairly small and we have so many families sponsoring through Compassion International already. I will be taking 12 child packets with me on Sunday and I pray that we can find sponsors for some of those children! Would you join me in praying that the hearts of the members of Heart Cry Christian Fellowship would be open to hear the message I present? (And also pray that I don’t fall on my face when I walk up to the podium or fumble my words when I speak?)
Now, time to get on with my day! I hope you have a wonderful day and finish what you set out to do with this day the Lord has given you!
Be blessed, friends!
