Becoming the Wife and Mother I Have Been Called to Be!
Wednesday, March 10, 2010
So much has changed in just a few months. I am well on my way to becoming the wife and mother that I have always wanted to be. It's been small steps, and I'm stumbling along as I find my way, but by God's grace, it is in fact happening.
I felt led to lose weight, and God continues to show me the way on how best to do this. He's made my paths so straight, that I can't help but go where He is showing me.
Then I started to have my usual desire for a clean house. While reading on one of my homeschooling blogs, there was a discussion about how to maintain a clean house while homeschooling. There were the usual postings for making a schedule, utilizing flylady (which I already did, but my house still isn't great, and I'm just not consistent enough for that. Not to mention the fact that I'm trying to cut back on computer time... lol), and then I came across someone that posted a link for avirtuouswoman.org. They were getting ready to have the Spring Cleaning 2010 challenge. I immediately signed up since I've been doing really well with challenges. Little did I know that this was going to be a whole different type of cleaning than what I had expected. Yes, my house is getting clean, but it's also a study of Proverbs 31. Phew, I'm getting a clean heart and a clean house! Praise God! :)
I'm now getting up early not just to exercise, but I'm getting in my devotional time. My days are going so much smoother and I'm much more ready to face whatever is set before me. I have energy to scrub my floors and baseboards and get to count it as exercise. :) God is so good!
