I'm upping the anty in my life. No more fooling around. I mean, really, how much longer can I fool myself that "tomorrow" I'm going to really go hard for God, really start loosing those pesky 25 lbs, etc.
You know the routine. It's time to belly up (no pun) and do what I want to do. Do what I know is right to do.
I'm also thinking about a serious house cleaning. I mean, really, what do I need with 25 DVDs? What value do they have in eternity? I have roughly 40 - 50 years left in this life and I want to make them count.
Simplify. Tis my motto.
It's human nature to cling. Cling to friends, cling to the past, cling to things. And, some times that's okay, but often it's clutter. Not only in our physical lives, but in our emotional and spiritual lives.
Declutter. Tis my motto.
I'm visiting my Mom for her birthday. We're having a nice time, but I need to head home tomorrow. Friday, my local RWA conference starts, and I'm hosting a Good Girls Corner for the PAN Pajama Party along with author, Mia Crews.
Mia and I had breakfast on Monday and had a great time. She's very classy and sweet.
But next Monday, I'm starting the simplify, declutter process. And, to think of a new chick lit idea.
Wow, it took me months to come up with the songwriter, Robin Rae McAfee. Prayers please. I have only months to create, write, edit, rewrite and submit. But my God is God of the impossible. Yay!
So, figure out what's clutter in your life. Busyness, a relationship, stuff, TV shows, gossip. Whatever. Let's be bold and declutter and simplify this month. Wow, what a great feeling it will be.
There should be NO excuse for not knowing Him more. People, we must be ready. We can't be offended when His judgements begin to be unleased. We can't risk our hearts growing cold.
