As Of Late (late!)

One of my VERY favorite websites, Exemplify Online, started a monthly meme on the 15th of each month that is an absolute FAVORITE of mine. (yeah, I know it's the 20th - gimme a break, eh?) Click here for details.

Check out Kristen's post from (uh, yeah) LAST THURSDAY for more "as of lates."

And now for mine:
  • Lately, I've been getting tons of spiritual nourishment from my blogging friends
  • Lately, I haven't been the best "worker at home"
  • Lately, my kids' energy level has dumbfounded me
  • Lately, I've been getting better at juggling several projects at once...as long as none of them involved housework! :( 
  • Lately, I've been trying to dream GOD'S dreams for me
  • Lately, I've been praising God for the big and small blessings of living in our neighborhood
  • Lately, I've been listening for His still, small voice - and sometimes even acting on it

What have YOU been up to as of late?

  4. Awesome, Jo. Listening for the still small voice with you, and definitely while I'm NOT doing housework. Love you, my friend.

  5. Oh JoDear, I like that! Dreaming God's dream for me. THAT's what I want too!!


Thanks for stopping by. I would love to hear your thoughts - please share them!
