A Peek Into my Journal

I am cutting into my scheduled posts to i want to do NOTHING today.

Call it a Thursday (my hump day).
Call it post three day fast.
Call it don't want to leave the house and do those errands.
Call it, so need/want to catch up on some things.

Now back to your regular blog post.

Jan. 3rd: I am humbled by the prayers for my brother and for us by the saints of God.  Every time I hear our name or my brother and his family lifted up in prayer, I am humbled and blessed.

Jan. 4th:  Started The Love Dare book.
              Day 1: Love is patient
                         "When you choose to be patient, you respond in a positive way to a negative situation.
                         Patience brings and internal calm during an external storm.  Patience is where love meets             wisdom." (a mixture of excerpts from the book)

Way to just get me on the first dare.  Responding positively to a negative situation is not my strong point.  It is actually what I've asked God to help me with this year.

Jan. 5th:  Day 2: Love is Kind
             Just after two days am struck with the truth that my hubby has these first two down and probably more.  While I knew this, it really hit me.

I love the patience thought. I recently read an article on patience, and it's really struck me. There was a quote in there, something along the lines of being impatient is "center of the universe syndrome" -- basically being selfish. It's really hit a chord with me. :)
