We Press On!

We love Oat Bran! We use this in the weekly muffins we make! I'll post recipe soon!

Today marked the NEXT to last weekend of soccer… God willing it doesn’t RAIN next weekend.  I love soccer… mostly because the little people I love the most really enjoy running and playing with their friends.  We have been blessed with great weather this season, and over all it’s been a great time.

BUT.  I am ready for this season to be over as I look forward to some time to do some other things with our family.

I know my kids would like the season to go on and on, but I do look forward to NOT having to jump out of bed bright and early on Saturday mornings for a bit… [well, until SPRING soccer starts up].  Time that we might snuggle together a bit longer, cook and clean together… and relax a little bit too.

That’s life isn’t it…?  It goes by seasons, we try to live – one to another… surviving one to say, “Yes!  We made it…”  only to have another stage or season start-up again.

What if there was MORE to life than just surviving though?  What if we could TRULY enjoy each day for what God has made it to be?  A gift.

What if during our daily quiet time with God, we could offer up our bodies to be used as living sacrifices to Him.

Uh oh.

What does your sacrifice look like today?

Is it left overs for God?  Is it your BEST that you can be offering?

Uh oh again.  Guilty.

Being healthy for HIM isn’t some over night process or once you’re on the right path you never struggle again.  Hop back on!  Let’s Go! Let’s Go! Let’s Go!!!!!!  (Why yes, I am a former cheerleader!)

I look forward to some more sleep this weekend – and drinking more water, I didn’t have enough yesterday!!  I bet go do a workout DVD with my husband.  Bob Harper is calling our names.   You know what that means?  Good times ahead.

“For the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all people.  It teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age,  while we wait for the blessed hope—the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, who gave himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for himself a people that are his very own, eager to do what is good.”  Titus 2:11-14
