Choosing Joy in The Journey Journals (Product Review)

WP_20150224_10_57_20_Pro

 

As many of you already know, I am passionate about journaling. I am a regular journal keeper and have been for many years- too many to mention at this point. I love to share my enthusiasm for the Journal Keeping habit with my friends and adhere to the philosophy “One can never have too many books” …blank ones preferably, with lots of room to write thoughts, dreams, and randoms. I have also discovered that many desire to keep a journal but struggle with what to write on a regular basis, beyond the superficial. Here is where the features offered in the Success Choice journals reign victoriously!

About Post-Valentine’s Day Love, Offerings and Falling Snow

I had finally poured myself into the welcoming comfort of my bed and was drifting off to sleep, satisfied after a long and tiring day of chores, to do’s and errands when he finally arrived.

He crouches low, to my level, seeing if I am awake. He’s got his hands behind his back and that gleam in his eyes I know well, and adore. I peek back at him with heavy lids, grateful he is home as we are being pelted by one in a series of snowstorms this winter season.

Confirming my sleepless status, he proceeds to hand me one of my favorite kinds of chocolate combinations; after all, who can have just one favorite chocolate combination? I appreciatively tear into the chocolate before drifting off into dreamland, my last recollection being his kiss goodnight.

A Week’s Worth of Jesus?

 Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Matthew 11:28

I am on a journey through the Gospels this Lent Season via Margaret Feinberg’s Lent Challenge. 4 Gospels, 40 days, and here I am wrapping up week 1 and feeling more in love with my Savior than ever before.

See, reading the Bible is not burdensome. But, being a Christian who makes no time for Jesus makes no sense at all to me. You want to feel burdened as a Believer? Ignore God’s Word, don’t pray and tell yourself you are too busy carrying your burdens to spend time with God.

Of course Jesus offers to carry those burdens, but you go just ahead and trudge along carrying them yourself. Friend, that is just foolishness!

If you want to carry your burdens, be my guest but don’t blame God when you’re weary from it.

The thing is we are all busy. We all have the same amount of time in a day. We all have to choose how we will slice up that day according to our priorities. And the bottom line is we get off track. We do. I do and you do. Unless of course you’re a Pharisee….

That’s a whole other blog post.

It’s Never Too Late to Start Again – #LentChallenge

LentChallenge

I wanted to just put a quick shout out for those of you who might want to join in for a Lent Challenge.

Nothing crazy, really.

Just reading your Bible daily.

OK, reading through the Gospels in 40 days to be precise.

I know, you already read your Bible, right?
