Oh the irony… 2015
Hey friends – I had this in my drafts, hoping to have it ready to go for the 1st. But due to health, and then a death in our family, I neglected to post it. I still don’t have it looking like I want, but I’ll come back and edit it later.
So when a phrase came to me a few months ago (like a slap in the face) I knew it was God preparing my heart for what He has in store for me for 2015.
What did I name this year?
Ha! So it really shouldn’t surprise me that in the year that I am supposed to be getting busy – working on breaking my love affair with being lazy – I have spent this whole week sick and in bed unable to be a productive member of society. (Thankfully, my husband has been home and has been taking care of everyone, and everything – he is a keeper!)
My goal for this year, is that whenever I get the urge to be lazy – to say to myself “Get Busy” and use that as motivation to break my bad habits. When I am sitting on the couch, but haven’t set aside time to work on my Bible study lesson… “Get Busy“. When I am letting my kids watch a show but we haven’t finished (cough*started*cough) school yet… “Get Busy“. When I am checking my facebook feed, but there are dirty dishes in the kitchen, or clothes that need washed/dried/put away… “Get Busy“. When it is a beautiful day and I send my kids outside to play, but I stay inside… “Get Busy” – get outdoors and play with those babies! Time is flying, I don’t want to waste any more time than I already have. It is time for me to “Get Busy“!
I am still praying about a verse to go along with my year. I am not attempting scripture memory, at least not in the form that I did last year, since that didn’t work for me. But I do have a few ideas floating in my head. One of my “Get Busy” goals for the year is to blog more, so hopefully I can share these ideas (and more) with you soon. In the meantime, I hope you are all having a blessed New Year!
