Recap of Day 1 in the wilderness

I know you are probably scratching your head about the wilderness part. But that's how I feel. I have removed a lot of the comfort things I used to spend energy on which took up a lot of time and thoughts. This is not just for this season but I am making long term changes in my life.

My day was kind of rocky. I got up and I thanked God for waking me up. I went to bed really late and I did not want to go into work. I arrived on time, which is late for me because I am usually there about an hour or so early. I struggled to find things to do to occupy my time while waiting for my reports to print. I usally go on the hair forum and post but that wasn't even an option. I spent my free time talking with God and making lists of things I need to focus on during my devotion and prayer time. I also searched the web for some recipes. I want to try something new and I am so excited about it. I will blog about that later.

After work I headed to the bakery to pick up some cookies for my coworkers. I arrived home and greeted the Supremes and the Mister who was studying. I chatted with the girls about the new recipe. They are just as exicted as I am. Then I made myself a plate and headed to my room. After getting comfortable, I ate and decided to take a nap. I set my alarm to wake me up in time for Heroes. I watched show and then logged online to check my emails and to chat with someone I had sent a gift to. It was short and brief because I didn't want to get sidetracked.

At around 9:30, I headed to my room to plan my monthly workouts and to organize my dresser. I purchased some more dividers on Saturday and I wanted to get them in place. Dh arrived a few minutes later and we watched the ending of CSI. I got into bed a little after 10 and we watched some of this show about a guy dealing with an eating disorder. I turned off the tv, prayed and went to sleep.

I used to think there was not enough hours in the day. Although I still feel that way, I am able to see that eliminating some stuff frees up a lot of time for me to do the things I want and need to do. My goal for today is to finish reading chapter 1of "What Matters Most" and to pray in my holy language. Much love. Q

This is a nice post Q! It is true that our life gets boggled down with uneccesary stuff and we get sidetracked from the main goal--to serve others and follow God. I have erased my accounts on Facebook, collegeluv, yahoo, etc. I'm having the hardest time with myspace and LHCF though. *sigh* lool But I will eventually stop for at least a month. I called you today!! Luv ya

I need to follow your lead and remove more to accomplish more.
