Yup, I am finally joining the bandwagon. If you’re not familiar with this series, it’s a link-up started by siddathornton. But for me, I actually found out about it through mainemendoza.com – yes, the blog of the well-loved actress for Yaya Dub. I figured this could be a great way to take a break from the mind-boggling activities of blogging and just write what I want to say while giving light to what’s really going on in my real life. It’s actually really simple, so here’s how it goes..
reading…War Room, is a novelization of the movie with the same title, by Chris Fabry. The movie was created by Alex and Stephen Kendrick (the same people who created Fireproof and Courageous) and is about how powerful prayer can be as a weapon to protect and guide us in all aspects of our lives. Not to give out spoilers; however, this book is enlightenment for me already even though I’m only halfway through.
writing… This blog entry and nothing else so far. Been planning and thinking about writing a novel or short story again, but I think it will have to wait. Besides, I have many entries lined up to be posted here on this blog.
listening…Those who know us and have been to our house, already know that my dad had set up a mini aquaponic system that had taken over our second-floor porch. The water being pumped up gives that familiar sound of something like a faucet left open on the sink. I hear the waters splashing and occasionally a fish sloshing through the waters.
thinking… Of losing weight. Of getting back on my feet and start working out again. Of eating less and moving more. But the more I think of it, the more I’m getting excuses not to do it. Help me, Lord!! I need to find that motivation again to lose weight – not to please other people but to do it for me.
smelling… The smell of fish. Fresh Fish. Because I’m seating beside the aquaponic tank with just a glass wall separating us. And also the smell of freshly washed clothes. Mix that together.
wishing… For that day that I’ll see him again. And of going abroad with the family for a vacation. Coming a few days from now!!!!
hoping… We could stay abroad a month longer or so.
wearing… The velvet long blouse I’m trying out, which I was planning to bring with me for the trip. But since I have to write out this blog post, I kept it on for now…
loving… The quote from the book I’m reading says “The goal of prayer is not to change God’s mind about what you want. the goal of prayer is to change your own heart, to want what He wants, to the glory of God.” Pretty self-explanatory, I must say.
wanting… To go to sleep right now.
needing… Sleep. Discipline to follow and reach my goals. Motivation to lose weight. Read my Bible regularly. Pray unceasingly.
feeling… Accomplished to have finished this first post in a series I want to keep.
Now…off to bed my loves…. God bless you all!!!
And If you care about sharing your thoughts with me, leave me a message below..I would love to hear it!!
