Today is Friday! You know what that means! AccBLOGability Fridays! If you missed the intro just take a look at the other AccBLOGability posts. Please feel so very free to join in anytime!!!
There are three areas that we are going to help each other in, each week, by staying accountable, or being an encourager, through comments :)
1. Reading God's Word,
2. Eating well, and
You can pick one or two to work on or all three! Whatever you need!
1. Reading God's Word: Still struggling to get a solid routine...BUT I used TFF and HTP ideas about picking out a verse that day/week that really sticks out to you and writing/drawing it on an index card. This is so good for me, not just because of my odd but strong love for office supplies!, but this process and visual really helps to memorize verses! I haven't done it for a while. These are the two verses that I have needed to focus on and memorize this week.
Prov 3:5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. But in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight.
The circled ginger root is the all your ways, ha! The cloud refers to Him :)
Prov 3:26 For the Lord will be your confidence and will keep your foot from being caught.
Because you all are my family and friends...well all family really :) here go the thoughts in my head. I thought I was supposed to get a visit from our great Aunt Flo yesterday. I was bummed and really thinking about it and waiting and still nothing yet. I'll stop there before I sound completely like a nut. I thought it would all be back to normal more quickly than it has been. I have been repeating Prov 3:5-6 all morning and pretty much all week. I am letting it go and giving it to God and His perfect timing. I'm doing it people.
I have also needed the reminder that God is my confidence. Hubby and God have been trying to work on that for me for oh so many years. And one day this week I really needed something, so Prov 3:26 was the verse!
2. Eating: I have decided that along with eating healthily, I have no food self control!!! I have therefore realized that I need to exercise more...or at all (as I think I may have mentioned) so I can eat! The empty box of Junior Mints, Hubby so sweetly bought for me, shows that I cannot help myself. The other night I was tired and bloated and it was late, so what did I do??? Made peanut butter chocolate chip cookies!!! If you want the recipe, I make them with whole wheat flour, cut the sugar and the butter down, which I may have done a little too much this time as they were not quite as moist as usual, but nonetheless, they were yummy people! There's actually not that much sugar in them anyway :)
I will still adhere to our healthy eating standards and previous discussions of mostly making food at home. I will!
3. Exercise: I kneaded dough this morning! I'm making homemade whole wheat bread, yummy! I swam some laps in my Aunt's pool one day...I ordered a jogging stroller (great deal :))!
We'll be going hiking this weekend!! Hubby planned, yes he planned, a whole trip to Prescott for today and tomorrow! It's a super cute town with shops galore, yay!!! And hiking trails, and more shops, and food, more shopping, then more food, then maybe another hike :) Does that sound like a great weekend or what?? Shopping, eating, family, and beautiful views, I'll take pictures!
I'll miss you this weekend and hope you are doing great in your venture to eat better, exercise more, and read God's word! How did you do this week???
Have a fabulous Friday and great weekend!! Peace out!
