miscellany monday

 Happy Monday was your weekend?  Did you remember to fall back or did you get to your destinations early?

I am here on another Monday with a little of this & a little of that.

1.  So, you know how I have been in a bit of a rut?  Well last week I was praying for guidance on what I needed to do to get out of this and God continued to bring me to various Scripture about 1 John 3, which deals with the hard Truths about how I need to conduct myself.  The "theme" of habits has also been popping up in my devotional, Jesus Calling.

I have to rethink habits like always reading blogs before reading His Word, ordering out in a pinch instead of getting creative in the kitchen, taking naps instead of being productive (sometimes I nap just out of habit, not that I am even that tired).  So, I'm going to continue to pray about this issue and hopefully get back to my old self :)

2.  This weekend I cracked into my card making stash and it rekindled the romance :)  I hope to be able to pull out these containers so more this week.  I so enjoy sitting down and creating something special for someone.
3.  Speaking of cards...soon my table will look like this:
Oh is time for Christmas card making.  My new stamp just came in and I would like to get started this weekend.  I am still debating about whether or not to do multiple styles or stick with just one

4.  Happy birthday to me...a little early.  This is my birthday week (it's tomorrow...and don't worry, you still have time to send me a card or a gift...wink, wink).  My mom ordered me a pair of tennis shoes and they arrived last week.  I love a new pair of tennis shoes...some people are boot people, some like heels, but I am a sneaker kind of girl :) 

Come on and join :)

I find that if I am doing the things I love, I don't run out of energy for them (ie card making!!)

Haha- daylight savings doesn't apply to us! E still woke up at her same time which happened to be 7 instead of 8am this time :(

And GOOD FOR YOU for trying to break some of those old habits- I'll be praying for you, I know how hard it is!

And I am loving those cards- I need to break into my SU stuff also and get creative- it is so good for the soul!

Happy Monday, friend!

What FABULOUS tennies! I love a nice, comfortable pair of shoes. I can get behind that. :o)

Ruts are SO incredibly hard to break out of. I think I read somewhere it takes two weeks to a month to change a habit and make a new one. Good for you for trying so hard!

I'm so so bad about my computer time. I probably waste *hours* on the computer, just piddling around. :oS That's gotta change, that's for sure.

I was just talking with Brien last night about how it was Christmas card time. Woo hoo! :o)

Happy birthday eve, Friend! :o)
