So I've totally been convicted this weekend at church ~ we have been 'challenged' so to speak, to give up something for 1 week. Something that is getting 'in the way' of our relationship with God - well that something for me is blogging, blog surfing, internet, internet surfing, facebook, etc etc etc - you get the picture. I have freely admitted to my husband that being on the internet and reading blogs, etc, has been an 'escape' for me. WRONG ~ when I really should be turning more to the word of God. I do have a bible study that I'm doing, but I work on that for just 30 min a day, sometimes cramming in 2 or 3 days in one night - I'm sure I'm not the only one that does it. Our pastor encouraged us to follow simple 'steps' to help handle whatever it is that has a stronghold ~ I worry about money. A LOT and the thing is, we really haven't been affected by the change in economy much except for gas prices. Yes, I'm in the real estate industry, but by following a strict 'debt diet' - we have managed to pay off such a huge bulk of debt that when my income dramatically decreased (I'm talking MASSIVE) ~ it really didn't affect us much ~ and I know that I am TRULY blessed to be in that position. Chad has a wonderful job that I pray he will stay in until he retires, I have wonderful opportunities every day and the hours that I spend 'wasting away on the internet' literally are eating me ALIVE ~ SO, for the next week, I'm taking a break. I will check my email, but only because of work related and I'm co-chairing a big charity event and feel like that needs to be the focus on my attention.
