Thoughts

I am thinking is it time again for another end of the month post.  I am also thinking I am at least two weeks late with my church ladies' newsletter, and already five MONTHS tardy in posting the last of our summer vacation installments, maybe the best one of the bunch, our visit to the PlainJanes. I am also wondering what I will make for company for Sunday dinner this week... and thinking about trying T-Tapps for a much-needed workout. Trisch at Never a Dull Moment is an amazing T-Tapps success story. But groan... look at the price on that workout DVD!  In the midst of all this thinking, I am re-thinking education (oh my, this subject has been ruminated on many times), but not reaching any conclusions.  I don't care if my kids know the life cycle of a sponge or a fungus or a protozoan.  I'm also thinking about turning over a new leaf and actually writing down a few personal goals and objectives for the coming year, for I am finding that with no goals, I gain no sense of accomplishment.  This thought, in turn, has me thinking that I have not grown at all in the past year.  Arghh!

The Bible says, Commit thy works unto the LORD, and thy thoughts shall be established. My brain could be de-cluttered of four or five of those thoughts if, unto the Lord, I would just DO the things I have been thinking about doing.  If it is God's will for me to DO those things and I am not doing them, that means... that means I am rebelling against him!

Now I'm thinking I'd better stop thinking, and get busy.

  1. Don't you just hate it when your mind won't stop? All those thoughts going around and around like towels in a dryer? Honestly, I get headaches sometimes just because I'm thinking. Ha! When the thoughts just won't stop I start reciting "Whatsoever things are...think on these things." It works...for a bit. :-D

  2. Make a list, check them off. If you can't afford the work out, then God has other plans for you! Go with what you have. Take a walk, if that is all you can do. I agree. I hate feeling like I did nothing in 2010. That is the enemy trying to discourage us. We did plenty, but maybe not enough in certain areas like fitness (for me). (((hugs)))

  3. 2011 is going to be a rare year - I'm actually going to make some resolutions - and resolve to keep them.

    Thanks for the reminder verse - if my resolutions aren't within His will they will fail.

    On a lighter note - I try to practice cerebral hygiene: only keep up there what I need.

    Come to think of it - I should practice closet hygiene, too. My "cup" overfloweth.

  4. And all God's children said, AMEN! Agreed, I think many of us feel the same way. I DO have goals...the same ones for years, and do you think I'm any closer to accomplishing them then I was 10 years ago? Not much! Perhaps this year I should be more diligent in actually working towards those goals.

    No rush on posting your visit with us...then I'll just get missing you guys more (okay, I'm tearing up).

    Just looked at T-Tapps. Sounds great (except price). I'll have to read more when I have a little time later today. Actually I did quite well on my chocolate & pizza afternoon/evening yesterday and lost a lb., just imagine what I'll lose if I can stick with it for a whole day?

    And yes, I just suggested to Amber last night that we become unschoolers. She was all for it. :)

  6. If the DVD is too costly then God has other plans for you.
