WHAT I’M READING:
Zen to Done by Leo Babauta
I’m a fan of David Allen’s book Getting Things Done. Babauta’s book is an interesting reworking of Allen’s system (a couple of other systems and a few ideas of his own) for organizing your work load. It certainly makes for a simpler and more focused day. Definitely worth the read.
The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo
I had seen this book recommended by a number of other bloggers and as I am slimming down my possessions for RV life, I took a chance on it. The author does share from her Shinto faith, but all in all it is a very encouraging book that helps you keep and organize the things you value.
Romans 14 by Paul and the Holy Spirit
I’ve been reading Romans 14 in the Message version and letting it soak in. We are called to love.
WHAT I’M PINNING:
♥ KISS pies (would be a sweet romantic gesture)
♥ cool solar lamp idea for your outdoor areas
♥ simple refashion of a Tshirt
♥ I’ve got to try these crafty marshmallows
♥ I’m going to make some of these easy window valances
WHAT I’M TWEETING: (a few tweets that got a higher response)
♥ Be patient with yourself when you make mistakes. It takes practice and effort to grow as a wife.
♥ Know your husband’s triggers (words that hurt or make him uncomfortable). Give thought to your words before they leave your lips.
♥ A long sensuous kiss doesn’t take a lot of planning, just a bit of privacy.
♥ Finances are typically a battle ground in most marriages. Win the battle by attending an FPU class. bit.ly/w4Yx74
♥ While temptation is unavoidable, sin is a choice. Take steps to guard your heart.
WHAT I’M DRAWING:
It’s been a busy month and I haven’t made much time for tangling, but I still managed to create a few new favorites.
WHAT I’M WORKING ON:
Paul and I are about 98% in the RV (a few more things to move in), so while we are still working on our new home, we are shifting our focus a bit to help fix up our old home for the new owners. It’s lovely to be turning our home over to friends of ours that will make new memories where our old memories play.
WHAT I’M THINKING ABOUT:
My husband, Paul, preached a sermon last Sunday using this verse:
A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another. John 13:34-35 ESV
Can you imagine having someone look at you and say, “you must be a Christian because you are so loving.” We’re talking about an expression of love in our lives so radical that folks take notice and conclude it is our relationship with God that makes us so unique.
I want to be known for how I love those around me.
