must water

cactus are great for me
considering i neglect them
rarely do i water them
now, i know they don't need much care
nonetheless, they will die, eventually
if left alone for too long
sometimes they are watered by the rain that drizzles in be the wind
but on the most part they depend on me

my relationship with God
if neglected will suffer 
often i get a word from the preacher man
sometimes i read a word, sometimes i pray
It's not been enough & i suffer & my kids suffer & my friends suffer
i can not be all that i am intended to be unless i am diligently seeking Him
it depends on ME

love like no other

symbolic of my life
beauty in the midst of chaos
all because of Jesus
He loved me so much
He chased me
He never gave up on me

flylady habit for december

I am starting a new series.  
Each month I'm going to focus on creating a new habit. 
December is all about keeping a clean kitchen sink. 
I admit it.  I have not made it a priority to go to bed with a clean sink.  I have always wished I cared more than I did, but I didn't.  Make any sense?  Well, I guess I have just been plain lazy.  And I don't like that about me, SOOOOOOO, I've made a decision to make a change.  
I have loved FlyLady for years.
It's true.  And I've tried to follow her example, but I have failed miserably several times.  When I say several, I mean a million.  
So, here's the plan to turn that around.  FlyLady has a series of BabySteps to creating habits that are supposed to take a month to complete.  It hasn't worked for me that way, so I thought why not work on just ONE baby step for the entire month & it's gotta stick.  It's just gotta.  I am determined.  
I love how a clean sink makes me feel.  
And I feel like my kids deserve a clean sink too!
If you need to make this change, also.  Join me.  
I'll follow up at the beginning of January to let you know how I did.  I'm excited.  I feel like I can do it this time.  Woo-hoo!  

"Shiny Sink 101" is coming soon.  
That's FlyLady's simple directions to deep clean your sink.
