My word of the year “Change”
Real Changes In Real Life
This year, my word of the year is “change”. I chose this word because that is what I received from the New Years Eve service at church.
Our pastor was led by God to do this one year and it has been about 4 years now. She goes into her room at church and begins to write small messages on each piece of paper. These messages are given by God. The number of pieces of paper depends on what God has in mind. All she does is follow Gods direction. Its amazing, you would only pick up what is for you. I love it. You simply would have a message for the entire year.
My note said “Well, well, well Yes, a good change for you”.
I have been wanting a change in our household for a long time. The change is not only one type of change but several in different areas of our lives. I know one area which needs a change, that’s in our spiritual lives. We need to read, study, and meditate on God’s word.
For some reason, reading Gods word is a challenge. Maybe it’s because the bible isn’t not just an ordinary book but a book that can help in all areas of our lives. Since I am wanting to do something about it, I want to challenge myself to read at-least one scripture every day for one month. If you would love to join me, you can. Simply go here.
Another change is my health, I really don’t have a whole lot of health problems, but I am experiencing some painful foot pains. I read on the internet that it could be Plantar Fasciitis. I try to take care of my foot by walking around the house with a rubber made slipper with thick soles. I also use soft house shoes. I get massages from my son and sometimes my hubby. Especially after work my foot would be very stingy. My co-workers say, your pain maybe caused by standing for long periods of time. Especially working as a cashier for 10 years. Or it simply my weight. Hmm!
My father always used to say, “lose weight because God made your whole body to handle a certain amount of weight, if you go over that, you will begin to experience health and physical issues”. I know I’m a bit over weight. I need to slimdown some. Maybe that’s the root cause of my foot pains. Could be!
Hmm another change is financial, I want to budget as much as possible. I am tired of not being able to buy this or that because I spent too much on something useless. I have started menu planning some time ago and its be great. Menu planning is part of my budget plans and will be continuing that journey.
What does “change” mean to you?
Change would take place in my home to, not just in personal lives. Such as decluttering, getting rid of things taking up space. Clothes I don’t wear anymore, and kitchen pans I don’t use at all. Basically, pulling out things that are not needed or are expired.
My office really needs a huge declutter and reorganizing system. By now you must think, “wow this lady is a mess”. And you are correct, I am literally sitting in a huge mess. A mess I created. I have a tendency of piling paper. I need to change my office and tackle paper clutter. Setup a system that will work for me so that my paper clutter is under control. I think I will use “Clutterbug” as a means for helping me declutter my home.
There are more changes to come in all areas of my life and I can share them in new posts to come.
- My walk with God
- My marriage
- My website, channel, and business
How To Create An Awesome Blog
Starting a blog was never on my mind until one day I saw Mrs. Whitford’s video on Facebook. It was a simple video of her and her daughter in a city.
What I Did To Encourage My Teen
One day, I peeked into the “parent vue” app to see my daughter’s grades for her current classes. I couldn’t believe my eyes. Two of her classes were low grade. She had a F in her Math class and a D in her World History class. When she came home after school, I talked to her about her grades. As she looked up at me, she exhaled with a deep breath and said, “I don’t know mom”. Right then I knew I needed to do something. She began to tell me just where she is in math class and what she thinks she needs to do in her History class.
Why You Should Value Your Job
Loosing a job is not the most fun thing in the world, in fact, when I lost my job, I was surprised. I couldn't believe my pretty ears. My body began to feel numb and I couldn't think or say anything. I was still trying to grasp the thought that I don't have a job anymore.
Why Use the Slim Down Bundle
When I first weight myself, I weight at 173 lbs. I was surprised because I weigh less than that. I knew I had to do something. Changing the way, I eat, what I eat, and how much I eat was going to be a challenge. I loved drinking iced coffees every single day, who knows how much calories were in this iced coffee. Another kind of foods was potatoes.
Look At What I Stumbled Upon
One day, I was going thru my spending habits and found out that I spend too much money on snacks alone, $100/ a month. That is a lot of snacks. This money could have been applied to something better or healthier even. I couldn't believe my eye balls. My eyeballs were literally about popped out of their sockets. I needed to do something.
Reward For Being Prayerful
I have never thought I'd receive my blessing this soon, especially after going through something very painful and devastating to me and my honey bun. (which I will share in due time, but not right now). I had never thought I would be paying for another car loan. Our budget is tight now especially after get the new vehicle. But let me tell you how this all happened.
A Surprising Message I heard with My Own Ears
A few months ago, my husband came home with a little furry creature. He was a brown and white little fellow. I immediately took a liking to him, greeted him with a bunch of hugs and smooches. He was a little thin but very energetic.
Becoming a better mom while being a mom
Raising two wonderful totally different teenagers was not an easy task, when I look back from the day each one of my children were born, I realized now, who they were, and I think I knew it then too.
