Five Minute Friday–Real

“Real is as real does”
I suppose.  Something I’ve learned this week. 

I always try and help out, offer support or love to those around me who need it, when they need it.  I try to be attentive to those needs.  I do it because I want to.  Not because I expect something in return.

4 But let each one examine his own work, and then he will have rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another.5 For each one shall bear his own load.6 Let him who is taught the word share in all good things with him who teaches.7 Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.8 For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life.9 And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.10 Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all, especially to those who are of the household of faith.  Gal 6:4-10

This week we’ve been on the other end.  Needing.  Needing love.  Needing support, and most of all needing prayer.

Drummer had a tonsillectomy on Tuesday.  Recovery has been painfully long, and hard for this sweet 12 year old boy.  He’s a trooper though and complaining very little.

And since Monday night, and Tuesday, we’ve received cards, emails, calls, FB messages, and texts….oh the texts from so many.  Many whom I’ve loved on and held hands and taken care of in their time of need.

That’s real.  That’s real God.  That’s real good.

God is good.  And the love He shares through others is real.  It’s good.

3 in 30 February Goals

February?  Already?  Really?  How can this be?

3in30-e1304446364370Last month I discovered the “3 in 30 Way” and I really felt pretty good about focusing on THREE goals – here are January’s and here are the accomplishments… So I thought I would continue and set my February goals here, for some more accountability.

1.  Household:
We are working on getting the basement in order.  It’s a huge job, but piece by piece it will come together.  I’m going to work on two area this month…
*The pile of sewing/mending that needs to get done.
*Purge/Shred/Re-file the files we HAVE to keep (including warranty paperwork).

2.  Blog: 
*Post and Comment regularly.

3. Personal:
*Continue to work on my morning schedule (quiet time, exercise, etc.) – since the quiet time is going relatively well, I am adding into the morning schedule, a 20-30 min. workout of some sort (walking, pilates, etc) three days a week.  And no appointments until after 10am on my days off (M, W, F) which should allow for the routine to work…
*Date Night with Chris (want to do this monthly)
*Read my three books for this month – Actually, it will be finishing two of them…

Your turn – what do you plan to accomplish this month?

Enjoy!
