Growth and Accountability

During this time, it is very easy to get into a slump. One way I am staying active and positive is connecting with a friend or family member and making them an accountability partner. The activity can be reading a book with my siblings or committing to get out of bed and do some form of exercise with my best friend, I have found that making accountability partners gives an air of purpose to my day during this quarantine.

Today I want to encourage you to not only reach out and check on your loved ones but make a commitment with someone. Set a goal and check in with one another until the task is complete! You will not only add value to your time at home, but you are now introducing another way to bond with the people you love the most.

New patterns New habits

This time in the home has allowed me to evaluate some of our family habits. The number one thing I noticed was our family’s diet. I have children who are 5 and 7 and somewhere  in the planet of parenting I decided that my children’s pickiness determined what we would have for meals and snacks… when in all actuality, I want health to be the priority. This transition of control was not a quick or obvious one, I didn’t notice before this quarantine that I had modified my selections for their preferences.

 So, what am I doing about it??? Simple, I have been slowly changing the pattern for our family. Through this quarantine in have ordered more fruits and veggies. Also, I have switched all of the regular chips for baked chips, these changes may seem small and insignificant to the average bear, but I have a plan. Small subtle changes allow my little geniuses time and appreciation for the new selection of snacks and meals. Instead of being alarmed… they are intrigued, and as a family we are creating better habits.

Have you noticed family habits that you haven’t before this quarantine? What are you going to do about it??

Faith and Fire

I am the cup – this is a poem I wrote during this time that I am labeling “a spiritual rollercoaster.” A time where faith has to stand the fire, and hope has to lead the trail from your heart to your mind. A common mis conception in Christianity is that we are always hopeful or always happy even in the face of opposition. But the truth is that even with God there are times of pain and anguish. During those times God requires our honesty, so that He can intern exchange our hurt for healing. But it all starts with the truth. Enjoy.

Isaiah 61

1)The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me, because the LORD has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, [1]

2)to proclaim the year of the LORD’s favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn,

3) and provide for those who grieve in Zion– to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the LORD for the display of his splendor.

I am your cup

Empty and breakable

Desiring to be held by your Spirit 

And sipped by the lips of peace

But times are changing, and I am

empty

Desolate…

left

Waiting

For a want , desire, use

I am in every home, every shelf

Waiting to be place in the hand of inspiration

To serve is my purpose

To be whole is my calling

Lift me

Fill me

Wash me

Use me

I am your cup
