Keeping Me On My Toes...

Here's my theory-
and I and sure that 
many of you bloggers will agree,
No matter what age we are
 or what stage we are in
we have to keep learning new skills.
Learning will keep us young 
and on our toes.
So, at the end of this month I am
going to take a cake decorating class,
 a photography class,
and a computer class.
All of the classes are beginner 101 classes.
I am going to start at the beginning
 and slowly make my way.
I'm excited to learn some new skills.
Should be fun!
Have any of you tackled anything new lately?

Quite Loudness

My week "Unplugged" is over.
Wow, was that was hard!

There are always great
lessons in stopping the noise
and just listening to the quiet.

I realized that all that quiet,
without the mind numbing
distractions that I have put
in my daily life, is so loud!

So, I hope that I can add a little
bit back in without ending up
where I was.  :)
We will see...

There are far, far better things ahead
than any we leave behind.

Hello Friends!
I have been trying to challenge myself
this year with all kinds of new things.
 I have changed my eating and exercise habits 
to try to become more healthy.
It has felt great!
 I have joined a Bible study again,
which has been wonderful!
 And, I have begun to work on some
 projects around my house.

All of these challenges are a
work in progress, and are not always
easy, but I am enjoying them.
 My next challenge,
 and probably the hardest for me,
is to be "Unplugged" for a whole week.

No emails, blogging, facebook,
pinterst (my newest obsession) 
and no TV.
Please say a prayer for me.  :)
Here is what I am going to try to 
meditate on instead-

"Whatever is True
Whatever is Noble
Whatever is Right
Whatever is Pure
Whatever is Lovely
Whatever is Admirable 
If anything is Excellent
or Praiseworthy
Think about such things."
Philippians 4:8

Anyone want to join me?
