Am I the only one out there that can get consumed with blogging? I feel like when I've spent too much time on here catching up on other people's blog, I need to cut it off completely. I know that everything needs to be in moderation. But, there are times that I know I've wasted time here in blog-land. I have taken a break from blogging to help that (and it did.) But, I guess I don't want to have to go to such extremes each time I've lingered too long on blogs.
For now, may I always keep in check my motives for even being on here in the first place. I desire growth. I long for this to be a place that is a healthy outlet for me to process things in life. May I not write for others, but rather for me to gain understanding and document important lessons learned.
I felt like this blog changed a bit for me after Dad was in the Heart Hospital. I used it to update everyone so they could know how to pray. Then, I used it to say where I was headed next and different things in between. I just have lost the focus of what I want this to be for ME.
As I prepare for a very busy and different summer, I love the idea that I'm redefining my purpose here. This journey through all these different stages in life can be forgotten. How cool, that I can look back and remember what the Lord has done for me!

Hey! I hear's hard sometimes to write just for me when I know all these people are reading it too! I am not sure what my purpose in blogging is yet. I have actually been asking the Lord that recently, so it's funny you wrote that. I started it to be an accountability thing for our 30 days with no tv deal last summer, which I really think I want to do again this year, it was soooo good for us. Anyways...lingering too long myself!
Go to the Siesta website (you can link there from the list of "friends" on my blog. There are a lot of fun things there! You may want to order a tee shirt and you can do it there if you want. Also, go on the Living Proof Blog and register for the Siesta Fiesta so you can get your armband for the reserved seating.
You may want to check this website for flights. My step-bro gets a comission if you buy there, but no pressure! Just see if you can find a good deal.
