I won a book!!!! My friend Meredith (lifeat7000feet.com)was having a book giveaway on her blog and I won...I guess technically Becky and Amber won also and anyone else that wants to read it around this part of the world.
I have read 50 pages and after reading the first 2 I felt like she was in my mind. For at least 6 months I have felt like life was getting to be more than I could handle. I know that everyone is able to handle different levels of busy, but I believe for my family Simple is better.
In part of it she talks about doing a job and doing it well and how when we multi-task we don't always do things well, and for me a lot of times don't finish the job. That's something that I really need to work on. That and procrastination. She mentioned getting things done so that if something comes up you have time to do it. I need to remember that. She uses a lot of good scripture too.
I thought I'd have more time to spend with God know that I'm home. Well it hasn't happened yet. I do feel myself spending more time in casual conversations with God as I'm driving or spending time with the kids but not the indepth conversations of listening to God and reading his word. I'm going to try and start getting up earlier and doing that. You guys hold me accountable.
I would love to have a wicker chair or settee(sp?) for the front porch to sit on and read in the mornings so if anyone comes across a cheap one let me know. It's a want not a need!!! Got to watch those things.
I'll have to let you know what else Joanne has to say in her book. She has a blog...check it out sometime. thesimplewife.typepad.com
