My list

Before you read my list let me explain it a little. We have lived in our house for almost 2 years now, when me moved in our house had no storage, the huge back yard was unusable and unfenced, we had a lot of crap and no place to put it. The only thing that's changed is now we have more crap cluttering up our house. It causes me a lot of stress, but I can't dissect and organize the house with 3 little people running around, at least that's been my excuse this whole time, but no more!
As for the personal things. I know I don't use my time appropriately, even though I spend all of my time taking care of other people I still manage to be selfish, and no one is getting my best. I make all sorts of excuses as to why I can't spend more time reading my bible and praying, but none of them make sense. As I learned from Pastor Mike's sermon, I'm putting coins in a purse with holes in it. I spend my time reading other things, or watch tv, or surfing the Internet when I could be doing the things I swear I don't have time to do, the things that would be more purposeful and missional than what I have been doing. God deserves my best and from now on he's getting it, not just my attention once or twice a week.


I know you can't read my chicken scratch and pens don't have a backspace so there's scribble marks. Not to mention my kids had peanut butter on their waffles this morning, the evidence it is in the right hand corner. I will make a readable copy, I am posting it on the right hand side as a list so it is always visible when you come to my blog. Again, thanks for your support, and please make comments and talk to me about my list often, help keep me in check.

It is so easy to use kids as an excuse! They do take a lot of time and effort, but I know that I, too, could do a lot better! I'll have to make my own list!

Good for you for making a list and sticking to it. That in itself is something to be proud of! I am looking forward to seeing you accomplish it all.
