3 in 30: May {week 3}

3in30 I'm In!!
"'This is the covenant I will establish with the people of Israel after that time,' declares the Lord.
'I will put my laws in their minds
and write them on their hearts.
I will be their God,
and they will be my people.
No longer will they teach their neighbor,
or say to one another, ‘Know the Lord,’
because they will all know me,
from the least of them to the greatest.
For I will forgive their wickedness
and will remember their sins no more.'"
Hebrews 8:10-12
I just simply love this passage in Hebrews!  God put his law in my mind and on my heart when I accepted Jesus as my Savior...He is my God and I am His child.  And, as a loving, living God He remembers not my sins.  Now that's encouraging news!  Makes me realize that when my end of the promise fails, He is ever faithful to keep His so I can try again tomorrow and not live life in regret.

Now, for my May progress...
Maybe one of my May goals should be to get my post written and linked up on time. :)  I'm making this week's link up at 3 in 30, so hopefully I'm turning a corner and getting back in the swing of things.
My May goals are:

1. Clean out junk drawers. Yes, we have more than one...and, yes, I want to tackle them all. (What am I thinking???)
One down...a couple more to go.

2. Go through the boys' clothes to figure out what fits, what they still like, what we need for the summer months, etc.
Done!  We had alot of fun doing this together.  We found a few shirts to add to those we're saving for their memory t-shirt quilt I'll make them one day.  And, we went shopping, too, to restock for the summer months already. 

3. Part 3 of 3 for the Proverbs 31 goals comes from verse 20..."Her hands reach out to the poor, and she extends her hands to the needy."
Passed on some gently used clothes that we weeded out of the boys' closet to a friend at church with boys who could wear them.  Sent more handwritten letters to friends.  And made some goodies for friends. 
Your hands can reach out to others in many different ways! ♥
Hope your week has been a great one!

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…
