As Of Late (September)

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.  Click here for details.

Check out Kristen's post for more "As Of Lates" and join in there. (doesn't appear to be up yet - soon, perhaps?)

And now it's my turn.

Lately, I've been trying to find the balance between waiting for others and doing what I can/should

Lately, I've found joy in teaching an old dog new tricks

Lately, I've enjoyed more "quiet time" than I have in months

Lately, messes have been bothering me (this is HUGE, by the way)

Lately, I've been reminded how much I enjoy working with kids

Lately, I've been wondering where some of my "second tier" priorities should be

Lately, I've marveled at how I once got through life JUST FINE without a computer, a cell phone, twitter, facebook, and FaithWriters

Lately, I've been focusing more on asking God for others rather than myself

Lately, I've felt blessed

And I've been wondering, what have YOU been doing as of late?

    Lately I've thought a lot about throwing my cell phone and email accounts into the sea. LOL. Oh, for quiet simpler days. ;)

    Love when you join me!

  3. I'm so glad you feel blessed and realize it. Some people don't know when they are blessed and end up taking it for granted. I think God would want us to take note of the blessings in our lives so we can remember His goodness in the dark times.

    Hope you have a wonderful rest of your week!


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

My One Word: 2016 and 2017

Most who know me know I am a very goal-oriented person (in fact, I already shared my goal wrap-up for 2016 and my new ones for 2017 on this...
