There are way too many things ending and launching and happening today for me to keep up without just laying it out there. SO if you've been following along at all you might want to read this post just because it's helping me count where I am.
Today is the END of #SeptemberJanuary. I tracked three goals this month and am counting it as a rousing success in learning some balance. I definitely was able to put some time and thought together for Quirky Faith. It was a fun way to kick start this love of mine which had stalled. Sometimes projects stall. More importantly, the kick start didn't derail my personal goals I've had in paying attention to my health and soul care. I'm down 11 pounds, my pants are fitting and I've kicked my Diet Coke habit. I feel better. And most importantly, my kids and I painted and played cards and had good conversations. My spouse and I even got a date in and another one planned this week. So YAY for balance. Thanks @JonAcuff. If you need help in reaching a goal can I recommend you follow Jon Acuff on Instagram or Twitter - or buy his book Finish. Its a funny game changer.
September 30 is an annual online conversation hosted by Wycliffe Bible Translators about why the Bible matters. This year a donor is giving $5 for every post on social media tagged with #whyBible. I've got a few up on Instagram. If you want in on the fun and want to share why the Bible matters in your life jump in the offer is open through midnight. Just post a photo with a ? on your hand, state why you care about the Bible and make sure to tag it with #whybible.
For those of you not on Instagram here is what I said:
The world is a giant painful mess. The Bible tells the truth and I recognize myself in its pages. When I apply the ideas to my problems I see progress. When I accept by faith the promises of Jesus I find freedom. #whybible because nothing else gives life.
Break up with your phone
I already wrote about this book earlier. You can read the post HERE. This is just a friendly reminder if you are interested in working your way through this book with me for the next 30 days we start TOMORROW. I will not be posting a ton about this on the blog (seems counter productive). I already have another partner ready to give me some accountability. You are welcome to join in. Just send me an email and I'll keep you up to date on the process as I build some better margin.. If you need help - jump in - we can support each other to do our lives better.
Pastor Appreciation Month
Pastor Appreciation Month is October - guess what - that's TOMORROW! I'll have a post up all about how the Book of 1 Thessalonians is a big long letter encouraging the church to participate in Pastor Appreciation Month. Not really. But pretty much. At any rate - that's up tomorrow.
Ok. I feel better. My schedule is cleared up. Hope you do too. Have a great week.
I love Jesus. I think my two daughters can change the world. I think you can too.
