Thoughts from me - a preacher's wife, farmer's daughter, mom, and nurse. Posts are mainly intended to help me journal the events of my life - topics will include kids, church, work, marriage, life in general,
and of course my dogs . . . and whatever else I feel compelled to write about.

New Look - Inside and Out

I have been thinking a lot lately about a lot of things. The big 4-0 is approaching and I have started getting all reflective - but in a good way.

I am changing a lot of things - this blog included. When I have more time, I will elaborate more. But right now the technical aspect of changing "Thoughts of a Preacher's Wife" are taking most of my available free time.

So for now here are a few of the things I have been pondering - in bullet form:

  • Work - new job? I actually sent out two resumes! Why did I do this - I hate change!
  • Home - rearranging/getting ready for winter. Sounds primitive I know, but last winter was hard in so many ways. I am taking my cues from Proverbs 31.
  • Kids - lots of thoughts about the kids growing up and the new challenges they face. Exciting yet scary! These are the thoughts that keep me awake at night.
  • Me - entering a new decade! Redefining myself. I am determined to be a new, better me!
  • Church - new convictions about my leadership with the kids. Doctrine - it's all about doctrine. Building our house on the rock.
  • Health - eating and cooking healthier more consistently. I truly believe we are killing ourselves with our diet. That is going to stop!
I am thankful for the transformation God has brought me through. I don't know if it hurts a caterpillar to turn into a butterfly, but I am thankful for my recent growth and change despite the pain.

God is good and His love is perfect.

I like the new look. Where did you find the "new look"? I'm hoping to make some changes in my blog. . .by the way, what do I need to do to be listed as one you follow? Just kidding!!!

You are so a blog I follow!! Was Lee able to clear up the Holy Spirit questions Madelyn had? This is too funny.
Just click on the banner at the top of my blog and it will take you to the free blog designs. I actually followed the directions and did the switch myself! I have to say I am quite proud of my new found computer skills!
Seriously, it was really easy - they tell you step by step how to do it.
