Time Management, Routines, Organization

The baby is almost 4 weeks and I have been wanting to get "busy" doing things for a few weeks now.  While I sit and nurse the baby, I just think about all the things I need to accomplish.  This can cause a bit of stress since I can't get it all done right now.  I am learning to take it step by step and praying alot for direction in the things I am not great at---time management and organization. 

I daily strive to excel in time management and organizing my home.  I love to read books on organizing and how to manage my home.  The best book for time Management is Managers of Their Homes  by Steve and Teri Maxwell.  An exellent book on how to manage your home and time.  You can do almost everything you have planned for the day.  A great book for small and large families.  I was introduced to this book when I had 3 children and have been applying their tips since 2000.  I just recently ordered their other two books, which are much needed in my life right now.  Managers of Their Chores and Managers of Their Schools.  

I am still learning on how to balance my free flowing personality with a more strict routine.  I have gone from no routine to stricter schedules.  I do get a bit tense with detailed schedules, but I do like them :D.  Just like organizing--I love reading, talking, and walking down the organizational isle in the stores.  I just have a hard time applying the things I have learned.  I am sort of doing it, but in small baby steps.  I am very excited about reading the books I just mentioned.  As I read and learn...I will share.

Thanksgiving at home: First time in 18 years

Let's just say that we didn't plan to spend Thanksgiving at home this year. I think the last time we celebrated in our own home was back when Moriah was a baby.  Yeah...that's about 18 years ago or so.  Let me tell you....W e absolutely loved it! Here's a little run down on how our plans were miscommunicated. You see...Donnie and I didn't communicate our Thanksgiving plans very well this year.  He had forgotten that we had spent Thanksgiving with his side of the family last year so that meant it was time to drive up to Jacksonville and spend time with my side of the family.  With not much talk of our T hanksgiving plans, I hear from the kids that he t old brother or dad not sure who that we would be heading down to see them Thanksgiving.    This conversation happened just a few weeks before Thanksgiving.  Kids: Hey where are we going for Thanksgiving this year? Me: Ummm....I think it's Jax.   One of the kids:  I thi

Part 2 of my last post/A Reply to a Comment

I decided to write a second part to my last post in response to some comments that were left. I understand the heart of the woman who wrote the response and I am in no way being critical of her comment. I just want to share my heart in a more deeper way. Here it goes: By far am I thinking and promoting people to walk in gray areas or sin. I am just simply sharing that we are all on this journey of walking with the Lord and sometimes we as Christian women can put yokes of bondage out of Law and not allow the Lord to change us by His Spirit. I am wanting to share how the Grace of God has taught me that by His Spirit I can be changed, not by doctrines or teachings of religion. Yes, the bible clearly says that women should wear modest apparel. Does this mean skirts? Yes, it says that having long hair is a covering for the woman? But will Jesus still love me if I do cut my hair? And how long is long enough? Some women cut their hair to help a good cause such as wigs for cancer
