An Idle Mind...
Wednesday, July 02, 2008
Monthly grocery shopping today with hubby and youngest son actually went better than expected. It is so draining and tiring though, thank goodness the temperature outside was nice! Hubby and I got all the refrgerator and freezer foods put away, guess I will get the rest tomorrow. I SHOULD do it today/tongiht, but oh well.
Friday, I have to drive to Lexington to pick my baby girl up! I actually miss her, this lets me know that therapy is going well, we are getting closer and I do not dread her coming home. I know that sounds awful, but you just have to know the background and I do not want to bring all that up, we are finally getting past it! Let's just suffice it to say her behavior has been horrible and sometimes still is, BUT, I have finally realized it was not all her, and while I always felt some of it was mine and hubby's fault, I could never quite figure out what it was we were doign wrong. So, it is good to be figuring all that out and working on it.
Sunday morning I had children's church with the 3-6 year olds (I have it when there is a 5th Sunday in the month). Anyway, a few times ago, we had lots of extra time, so I played music and they danced and when I would stop the music they had to freeze. NOW, they want to do that EVERY time, LOL! I hope I can remember to take my camera next time because their "freezes" are hilarious, as well as their dancing!
I am not doing so hot with spending time with God right at the beginning of the day like I need to, like I stated in my goal. But, I AM praying more than I was throughout the day, etc... so that is an improvement.
As far as drinking my water, I am sucking on that one. So, I am still working on those two goals.
I have noticed that when I am rested and not feeling tired and drained and/or when I am physically active with my mind occupied, I tend to "dwell" on things less. So, I have been TRYING to make sure I sleep plenty and more than that, I have been trying to do some little or big thing around the house each day.
I think I might stop by the library tomorrow and see if I can find a good book, or maybe I will just check out a book from the church's library. I LOVE to read and in the past I would make a game of I can read one chapter, then I have to do this or that and the faster I do it, the sooner I get back to my book! So, that might be good.
I do not know if this is a scripture or a "saying" but I THINK I have heard something along the lines of "An idle mind is the devil's workshop." Soooo, I need to keep my mind on the things of God and taking care of my family is certainly a "thing" of God's!
Well, that's all folks! (For tonight anyway),
EDITED TO SAY:
That saying is NOT a scripture, but it IS like an Irish proverb or something, actually a different country, but whatever and SKINNYJEN, I know idle hands is one too, but the idle mind was what was pertinent to what i was saying, BUT, guess you know me well enough to know that i need to get busy too, LOL!
