It's been too long...so I'm very excited to be linking up with the lovely Carissa today!
One-Yikes. I am a bad, bad blogger lately. Even some of my mom's friends have commented on the fact that I'm not posting lately. (To those friends and others that are thinking it...I'm so sorry! I promise I have some ideas coming...and I am re-prioritizing my life a bit which will lead to more posts.) Honestly, blogging is my outlet. I love it and how it allows me to free my thoughts. Seriously, if I don't write...I'm so unsettled! Thanks to those of you that are so supportive and kind enough to inspire me to keep up the blogging!
Two-Contentment. One thing that is really, really lacking in my life right now. Whew...advice would be more than lovely on ways you have overcome times like this in your life. I'm feeling it like I never have. However, I am so thankful for one thing in this season...that I have the steadfast promise of Christ's love and His grace in my life. He loves me through all seasons and all soul battles and I know He loves me far too much to leave me in this struggle for too long and He definitely won't let me come out of this unchanged in one way or another. (Um, yep, that's a run-on sentence from this 4th grade teacher and daughter of a grammar-crazy mother. Forgive me, Mom...I'm leaving it that way.)
Three-Thanks to those of you that joined in on the link-up. I've always enjoyed joining them myself...and it was equally fun and encouraging to read all of your great posts you linked up! You gals are so creative and inspiring! Hope to do the same thing for the Christmas season!
Four-I mentioned back a couple months ago that one of my goals this year was to take things a day at a time. Surprisingly (well not...because it's totally through God's grace and help), it's working. I have had moments of pressure and stress thinking ahead this year, but for the most part, I have taken it a day at a time! It has been such a blessing to see how it has changed my daily perspective in the classroom and how I approach each lesson (well mostly) with eagerness and excitement. It's also caused Fall Break to sneak closer and closer without me really noticing....I love that!
Five-We've decided to get a security system for our home (well besides our vicious pup)! ;) I'm excited that it fits in our budget. It's something I definitely want when we have kiddos, so we've decided with the great pricing they're offering right now, we're going for it! What do you all think about your security systems? Anyone out there have them and have positives/negatives to share?
Isn't being miscellany so much fun? Feels good for the soul! Happy Monday y'all!
