Just another day?

just another day? . . . I hope not!

Many times when you ask the question “how are you today?” a response that I often hear is “it’s just another day! it's no different than yesterday or the day before”.

And really, there may not be anything super significant about this day apart from:

it's another day that i'm alive!

it's another day that i get to enjoy my husband. my son. and my daughter.

it's another day that i can experience God's love, grace, and mercy.

so while it is, in fact, just another day, today i rejoice—for God has granted me yet one more day.

life is fleeting. it is a vapor, a breath, a blink of an eye. so not just today, but every day take a moment to enjoy the gift of another day! That is what I want to celebrate not just today, but every day!

just another day? . . . TO CELEBRATE!

G.N.O. @ Sips-n-Strokes

Here are our abstract masterpieces!

Until next time . . .

Brett finally made it home on Christmas Day just in time for Christmas! Kelsey flew back in on the 1st and they both got to stay until yesterday. It was so nice having Bethany and Brett & Kelsey home for the holidays.

JANUARY 1, 2010

2010 is here - ready or not! I'm not big on making New Years Resolutions. I never have been. But this year I'd like to set some goals for myself in the new year. I am going to refer to them as "Cathi's List of Ways to Improve Her Life in 2010".

1. Spend more time in HIS presence - I have always done a daily personal devotion, but I realize the more time I spend with Him the better I will be for it. 2. Build New Relationships - I would like to develop relationships with women at church even those it won't be an easy task as well as reaching out to develop relationships with other ladies to share in His word, camaraderie, etc. It is hard to develop relationships with people when you live 45 minutes away, but I am going to try to be creative in building new relationships. 3. Be a better friend - I want to make an effort to talk to and check on my friends more. I should call my besties at least once a week. I get busy day to day with work, chores, activities, etc. that I sometimes forget to check on my friends. They are just a phone call away. 4. Try to eat healthier rather than JUST trying to loose a pound or two - I want to pay more attention to eating things that good for me rather than bad for me. Then my clothes will fit better and I will feel better about myself as a whole. I don't want to stress myself out about the whole ordeal, develop better eating habits and better better choices. I want to live a healthier life and put food into my body that reflects good living. 5. Get more exercise - I tend to say this in the winter - when it is freezing outside (too cold to walk outside); however, I do hope to attend the Y on a regular basis. 6. Get ALL the family together more often as well as build family relationships with extended family members that I love and don't get to see as often as I would like - Most all of my immediate family live within a reasonable distance to get together more often. I have extended family members that live quite a bit away; however, there are those who only live a few hours away. I would rather work harder to make it happen than regret that I never took the time to make it happen. 7. ALWAYS look for ways to improve myself in being a better servant, wife, mother, steward - I like to consider myself pretty good in these areas but I never want to miss a chance to improve. I want to be more conscientious and never take for granted how blessed I am that I have a personal relationship with my Savior, God has blessed me with an amazing godly husband, our family was blessed with two beautiful, healthy children, and that he provides for our needs daily and His grace IS amazing.

Would you like to share your "list of ways to improve your life?"
