Talk to Myself Tuesday, June 21, 2011

 

My family says that I talk to myself

quite often, but I prefer to think of

it as Thinking Outloud!

Either way, here’s what’s been on my

mind recently…

 

– Conflict  doesn’t cause a reaction/response, it simply brings out

what’s  already there.

– Being organized saves times, but it takes time to get organized. hmm

– At least I’ve managed to write a to-do list to free my brain from thinking

of these tasks over & over & over again!

– What an honor it was to speak at the Michigan camp for Girls Ministries

– Spending time with tween girls & hearing their thoughts & dreams was so fun!

– Watching such young girls spend over 45 minutes all alone in prayer with Jesus

reminds me that we often underestimate a child’s ability to understand the

truths of The Bible and live them out.

– We’re doing well with NOT turning on the air conditioning yet.. I’m proud

of us. It makes it feel like summer

– I keep a huge calendar of the families events & plans… but it doesn’t work

unless I actually LOOK at it fairy often. Found that out the hard way yesterday.

– If you admire someone & would love for them to mentor you, start with

what they’re already offering … blogs, books, attend places/ministeris

they’re already involved in.  Don’t expect them to dedicate more time

and energy to you when you’re not even utilizing the tools they’re giving

to you.

– I’m way over due for a little wii Just Dance!

– This Sunday’s BIG SPLASH at Belle Isle is a highlight of our summer

Jump at the opportunity to help someone else. It’s exercise for your whole being!

  1. I love that: Jump at the opportunity to help someone else. It’s exercise for your whole being! How true that is! I’m with Erin. I love reading your thoughts as well!

  2. I am with you on not underestimating how much children can understand about the Bible and God. I don’t want to ever “water down” the Bible for children or feel like I have to change things to make it more fun for them! I think that when we get excited about God – kids get excited about God!

  3. I’m way over due for a little wii Just Dance!. . . . I LOVE just Dance! Its part of my daily(ish) routine!
    When Im back, I think it will be time for a dance off, so you betta get practicing!! 🙂 lol
    Love you Netta! Love your transparency and the way you share your lives with others!!
    Big Hugs from across the pond!!

  4. “If you admire someone & would love for them to mentor you, start with
    what they’re already offering … blogs, books, attend places/ministries…” >> golden advice.

  5. LISTS!!! So needed this reminder as I head into my Sabbath!

    Had a computer heavy work load this week so I’m just catching up on my blogs… yours comes first as always… and the choice is always so rewarding!

    Love you!
