Birthday Season: opening day

"It is for freedom that Christ has set us free..."
Galatians 5:1
Yes, indeed, it is the month of May and my birthday season has officially begun! Today was full of time with my, shopping for their summer clothes, and making cupcakes.  Along with those things were prep work for tomorrow's meal at church, laundry, and signing on the dotted line to put our house on the market.
In the back of my mind I am beginning a list of reasons why 40 is better than 20...check back time to time to see when it has been completed.  It may surprise you; it has me so far.
Wanting to get this post in on 5/1, I sat down to complete it and realized I had but 5 minutes before the strike of midnight...I've been too busy getting other things completed for tomorrow (which is now today).  I guess I'll go ahead and find my 5:2 verse for later today because I know this day is just as full as yesterday.

  2. We aren't moving that far...just to the other side of the tracks in our same county. Not broadcasting it loudly yet...just seeing what happens. :)

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…
