Friday Catch Ups

Just catching up on a few things I’ve been meaning to share...  

First of all, I was blown away by all the feedback I got from my Single’s Day post.  I hope you all know that I am praying for you and for God’s plan for your life.  I know it can be frustrating and disappointing at times but I truly believe that when we let God control every situation and look for His will more than our own, great things will happen.

I just started 21 Day Fix this week and so far I am LOVING it!  To be honest, I have been a bit skeptical of the whole Beachbody/Shakeology thing but I joined a “21 day fix mom group” and really love interacting with everyone each day.  It is great accountability and encouragement!  I love how easy the meal plan is and the workouts are killer… plus they are only like 30 minutes so I have no excuse to not get them in each day.  I have already lost a few pounds and can really tell a difference from the workouts.  I can’t wait to share the results in a couple of weeks.

And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives to the death.” - Revelation 12:11    

I ran across this verse the other day in my morning devotion and it just really stuck out to me.  There are so many negative things going on in the world right now that it can become extremely overwhelming.  But I know my God is in control and he has already overcome it all.  And while I may not can change the hearts of everyone in this country or even in my own little circle, I can live my life as Christ lived his and through love and through my words and actions, I can make a tiny difference to someone else. 

I have probably said it a million times but I can never express it enough. I think teachers are the most amazing people in the world.  I volunteered at Hadley’s school a little bit the last couple of weeks and as much as I enjoyed it, those little ones wore me out!  I really don’t know how you do it everyday but I am so thankful for you.  It takes a very special person to not only teach these kids but to help them and encourage them and truly love all those little human beings.  You rock teachers!!

And how awesome was that World Series final this week? I stayed up WAY past my bedtime but I am so glad I stuck it out and made it to the end!  I don’t think I have gotten that much into a World Series game since 1995 when I was obsessed with Chipper Jones and subscribed to Choptalk magazine.

I am so looking forward to a slow weekend to get caught up on some much needed housework and spending some time with family and friends!
