Excuses and My Morning Focus

Life as usual has been busy. I will have to make time to blog a little more. I am working hard and trying to stay on top of our home. DH has been really focused on his job because they have been keeping him REALLY busy. It is times like this that I just want to be at home taking care of my DH and our home.

Sometimes I just want to walk away from the office and never go back. Not because the office is a horrible place to work, as a matter of fact this is the most wonderful desk job I have had. My bosses are so patient and kind but they still push me to be my best.

I guess that is part of the reason I haven't blogged in a while. I started this blog while I was at work and I just made a committment to spend less time online and more time focused on my work. Then, when I get home, there are so many things to catch up on that I am exhausted by the time 10 P.M. rolls around.

I have started getting up with my DH when he leaves for work (around 6:30 or so). When I was Way Disciple I had a lot of problems getting up at 6 A.M. and studying the Word. I always considered myself a night person.

Recently I have been looking at the Proverbs 31 woman and trying to emulate her focus and drive. That is when I had an "Ah Ha" moment. In the Word God makes many many references to rising while it is yet night and rising early to pray and get focused on the spiritual needs of the day before the physical needs overwhelm it. I have decided that even though I consider myself a "night person" I am going to push my believing and rise up while it is still early.

So far, three days in a row!!! Yeah me.

The mornings have become more productive as the week goes on. On Monday I only made the bed and put clothes away, on Tuesday I got distracted by a book I have been wanting to finish and only made the bed (and finished the book) :). This morning, however, I got up and made the bed, ate breakfast and walked on the treadmill for 30 minutes. I am so proud of me.

I want to improve my body and my mind but I am going to have to make it a point to read the Word in the morning. Maybe I could put my bible right by my bed and then I could read it while I was fully waking up. (I won't be doing any major studying, just reading for enjoyment.)

Thanks to SJ, Elizabeth, and Kristen for encouraging me to continue blogging. The little bit that I do has really helped me get focused on what I want for my life.

Until next time...
