3 in 30: Encouraging Words in February

"Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God..." 1 John 3:1

I've been thinking about this month's goals...last month's goals...and next month's goals.  It can all be overwhelming if I let it, because along with the 3 goals of each month, I have so many other goals for each day I want to do, too.
One day this week, I read 1 John 3 and just simply rested in it.  I wrapped myself in the unconditional love God has for me as His daughter.  It is something I cannot work towards.  He is love and He loves me.  I feel refreshed in this fact.
As for my goals...water intake is still going well.  an impromtu visit to IN (where my family lives) this week helped me get my "visit with a friend" goal met.  And, by later today my loose photos will all be in albums.
Thanks to all who stop by and leave encouraging words on my blog!  Hope you have a great end-of-the-month week next week.


  1. wtg with your goals keep it up :)

  2. Good job!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm in GA too! Near Athens. Where are you?

  3. I hear you, "...along with the 3 goals of each month, I have so many other goals for each day..." <-- ME TOO!!

    Sometimes its just a blessing to be able to wrap yourself up in God's goodness, unconditional love, and grace. He wants nothing more for us than to experience Him. YOU are experiencing Him. priceless.

    You're doing so well this month. Way to go. =)

    Keeping it Personal,
    Teri Johnson

it's not about me

I reminded myself of this recently.
It's not about me at all, this wellness journey I am on to a healhier version of myself.
Not at all.
Never has been, really.

It is about the people who invest in me.
My husband. My boys. My family. My friends.
They all share themselves with me.
When I am not at my best, I'm not giving them a good return for their investment.
They get the tired looks, the lack of energy excuses, and the wimpy "maybe next time" cop outs.
I have come to realize that those that take precious time to invest in me deserve better from me. I need to adhere to the direction given on any flight I've ever been on that goes something like this: make sure your own oxygen mask is properly secured before helping others. If I don't take care of myself first, my ability to care for others effectively diminishes quickly.
My choosing clean eating, drinking enough water, and exercising on a daily basis is how I put on my mask first. Am I perfect at meeting the n…
