It's Friday

Welcome to the blog world M&M Mommy. I am so glad that our little blog ring is growing. It goes to show you what an influence that we have on others. It is up to us on how we use that influence. We can either use it for the Lord, or we can use it to satisfy self. I want to use it for HIM, because as I learned this week in my memorization verse I am His servant and I need to act like it at all times.

I don't know about you but I am trying to spend more time in the bible this year reading, studying and praying. No, I did not make a New Years Resolution, I am just trying to draw near to HIM. If I draw near to HIM, He will draw nearer to me. It is kinda like a circle, it keeps going and going, and going with no beginning or no end. But I have to make the effort to want more of Him, and He will give me more of Himself. So, why do I neglect it so often? I am trying to set aside time each day to get into the Bible.

My week has been busy, but they all are. I've kept Clayton almost 2 days this week, gone to Hickory twice, went to a funeral today. I have also gone to the gym 4 days this week and walked 30 minutes daily on the tredmill along with losing 4 pounds since last Sat. Along with trying to recover again from this cold stuff that evidently I have never got rid of. It keeps reoccurring. I wish I could lose 4 pounds every week. It would not take me long to lose all the weight I want to. But anyway, I will keep walking, drinking water-yuck- and watching the calories. But I must way the highlight of the week has been spending time with Clayton.

It's all About HIM

As your son said at our New Year's service at our church when he was preaching "You are as close to God as you want to be"..
I'm glad he said that.. it's really stuck with me :)
