lukewarm

Sup y'all?

Yeah, I think it's time for some change. 

You know that season in your life where you just feel like you need a change.  I'm there right now.

I'm tired of feeling like a hamster in a wheel.  Stuck!

I've been praying for a while now about some major changes I would like to happen in my life.  I realize that sometimes what I want is not what God wants for me, but I know for a fact he doesn't want me to continue feeling stuck and lukewarm anymore. 

“I know your works: you are neither cold nor hot. Would that you were either cold or hot! So, because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth."
Revelation 3:15-16

I know God wants more from me, but I need to make some changes and some sacrifices to get where I believe He is leading me.  I feel like I've got a lot of balls in the air and at any moment I'm going to drop one and then they will all come tumbling down.

I'm tired of being your average working mom, wife, and christian.

I would greatly appreciate your prayers while I try to navigate these changes. 

I was recently inspired by an awesome blogger who is using her blog in such a great way.  Megan at Just a Small Town Girl is selling ornaments for adoption.  Please go over to her blog and see how you can help.  You might also notice in my sidebar I've got her Ornaments for Adoption button to help spread the word.  You can help too.



So now on to a few superficial changes:

Weight loss is a thorn in my side.  It's always on my mind.  I'm so tired of trying to lose weight.  I'm not going to tell you how motivated I am and how I'm not going to stop until I lose fifty pounds, because I've said those things before and then nada. 


One of the ways I'm trying to drop a few lbs. Look at that cute little face under that helmet!

I really want to be rid of this extra weight, but I've also got to stop letting it consume my every thought.  I've never thought about praying about weight loss, but why not? 

Haircut--I've already made this change.  I really don't like putting pictures of myself on here, but I really like my new hair and wanted to share. 

 In the process of trying to take a semi-normal looking picture with my cell phone by myself, I realized that it's just about impossible.  People who can do this successfully are truly talented in my book.  Here are all my outtakes.





I really just can't take myself seriously, so I had to throw in a few goofball shots.



Abigail got her hair cut too and donated to locks of love.  We weren't originally going that short, but then decided that donating would be a great life lesson for Abigail.

Doesn't she look sweet??!!

So these are some ch-ch-changes happening around here.
 
What changes are you thinking about making in your life?

  1. first love your hair and your daughter's. I always love bobs on little girls. Secondly, I am on the exercise bandwagon myself. I am getting up earlier to do it and thus far it's working. I need to tweak the timing a little better but getting there.
