Monday Musings

  • excited to listen to this podcast when it comes out and love some of the thoughts Perry posted already:
    • Love for her intimacy with God…and not just the information she knows about Him!
    • When you focus on what you do not have (a relationship) more than you focus on Jesus and His Word…the result is usually compromise.
    • AND…YOU DO NOT HAVE TO COMPROMISE…EVER!!!  If I could sit down face to face with every single girl I would say the same thing…WAIT for God’s best…it’s worth it.
  • had my first “see you in His timing”
    • my heart is already aching at the thought of saying more of those soon…
  • hung out with Lindo today….man, that kid is too much fun and I love his family
    • definitely made me smile today
    • working on making a video of the tons of pictures I have of him 🙂
    • can’t wait for next week so i can give him a soccer ball and whatever else random I find in town for him…so what does a 5 year old like?
    • S6301455

  • “no weapon forged against you will prevail, and you will refute every tongue that accuses you. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and this is their vindication from me,” declares the LORD.” ht: note
    • The weapon of jealousy will NOT prosper against you because we will CELEBRATE what God is doing
    • The weapon of feeling insignificant will NOT prosper against you because HE MADE YOU SIGNIFICANT when He saved you and called you…your significance comes from your salvation…not from “success” in ministry.
  • can’t wait to see this girl.
  • asking God to hold me tight tonight and help me fight
    • feeling a bit broken tonight.
    • getting away with Him.
  • listening to this guy thanks to his free music. 
    • speaking of music. integrity music and their free song on friday makes me happy

Ragamuffintop Challenge Week 1

With the official start of June 2 minutes ago, I’m completely up for a new challenge.  I’ve been reading Ragamuffin Soul for a while now and decided this could be a fun little thing to participate in.  Here are the rules:

1. You must have a measurable goal.

2. You must place a photo or video on your blog each weekend and give us the scoop on how you did.
3. You must link back here so that the readers of your blog get to see how the rest of us are failing or succeeding.
4. You fill out the linky thing below and then people can get to your blog from my front page and we can cheer each other on.



I don’t own a scale nor do I necessarily want to…(I’m a bit obsessive sometimes–not good).  So I won’t be going that route.  Instead, I’ve got a few measurable things that I’m going to work on.  


Now in the pictures these pants look fine, but let me tell you…they are a bit tight–too tight to wear for 8 hours at work.  I’m a BIG fan of comfy clothes so simply put I don’t wear uncomfortable things pretty much ever.  So the main goal will be to be able to fit comfortably in these again 🙂  Along with this goal I want to be able to participate in a triathlon if I decided to do so toward the end of summer.  I haven’t figured out a way to train for the swimming part yet.  The rest is measurable.  13 miles of biking and 3.1 miles of running.  Lastly, another subset goal is to complete the Biggest Loser 6 week program.  I have gone through 4 weeks of cardio and just gave in and bought the power sculpt dvd as well.  So I want to do the cardio 4 times a week and the power sculpt 3 times a week.  Yikes, who knew there could be so many things to do!  Here we go!  

p.s. I’m planning on posting a “why am I doing this” blog soon 🙂
