3 in 30: April {week 4}

April's goals...

Write and mail someone a letter/card each week.
Again, this week, I found myself looking forward to these few minutes of handwriting a letter to a friend.  Something happens when you give of yourself to someone else...and God uses it to bless His children, myself included.
Make a new recipe at least once a week.
Made a delicious no-bake chocolate eclair dessert today.  I'd had a vanilla one at my sis-in-law's house before and enjoyed no-bake eclair and you'll find a recipe.  My 9x13 dessert cost me $3.95.  Unbelievably good for a good price, too! Part 2 of Proverbs 31...verses 17 & 27
"She sets about her work vigorously; her arms are strong for her tasks...She watches over the affairs of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness."
Haven't been home much this week...we left Wednesday for IN to spend time with my family over Easter...BUT I do feel good about getting alot done before I left and am hoping this goal will motivate me into unpacking in a timely fashion and with a happy heart once home again. :)

Happy Easter!!!
Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?”  John 11:25 


  1. Wonderfully uplifting goals. I really like that you are focusing on Proverbs 31.

  2. Great job! I think I am going to try that dessert too - sounds yummy!

  3. Goodness... I think everytime I feel a little stressed I need to revisit your page.. Thank you for always giving me a sense of breath and a smile when I read your words!
    I hope you have a blessed visit with your family!

  4. Thank you, ladies! I'm just back home from visiting family and hope to get to all of your blogs soon!

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…
