July 23- 28, 2011

Pretty much of the same thing this week. Except, not. The kids left for a vacation at the beach and I worked that weekend at the hospital. On the 25th, I took Trey and his two cousins to a nearby lake. They have a sand area and picnic tables. So we headed out that morning and made a day of it at the lake. They had a great time and didn't want to leave. I loved watching them play in the water and sand. We had a great time. My camera was acting crazy, so I took quick pictures of the kids with my phone.

I worked Tuesday and Wednesday and with the kids still gone, I went home and went to bed everyday. This week I have gained some new perspective of my life. I'm happy to say that I've gotten back on track with eating and exercising. And have done surprisingly well. If I do say so myself.
I brought my Bible and "some tools" to work with me this week. During my break times, I wrote out scripture on index cards. A helpful hint from Beth Moore and Mandisa. It has helped so much. I love it. Not sure why I didn't do it before. Well, while I was filling out cards, if I wrote something wrong I tore it out and started over. After doing this a few times, I realized that I was wasting too many cards. I'm not perfect and my scripture cards don't have to be either. So if I made a mistake, I just kept writing. A good lesson of my life not being perfect, but I can come to Cross just as I am.

On Thursday, I slept most of the day and went that afternoon to the gym. I wanted to go to the H20 Zumba class. Zumba in the water? Sign me up. I did cardio first and when I got to the pool, they weren't doing the class anymore. So I swam laps until time for the next class. So I spent 3 hours at the gym. And I lived to tell about it. I felt really good. And I slept like a baby that night.

Up next: Going Beyond Southaven, MS with Priscilla Shirer and Anthony Evans Jr.
(I've got so much to say...)
