Oh My Blog, I Haven't Forgot You

The past two weeks I have said "That would make a great post" about 20 times...and then we go back to the pool.

I love summer, but find that is absolutely throws my blogging time for a loop. Part of me loves that and the other part is twitching big time. :)

I'm thrilled to be doing "Me, Myself, and Lies" with so many of you! This first week has been a little tough for me.

Part of that is coming off of the Freedom's Call Conference from last weekend. My friend Debbie F. blogged about it here. Go check out what she says and then hear me say "ditto".

So I walk away from last weekend beating myself up left and right over what I should have said, could have said, missed notes, forgotten you get the picture?

And then we start "Me, Myself and Lies".

Timely huh? Just like God isn't it. Check out this statement from week one that has sunk deep into my heart:

"When we meditate on God's wonders and word, we have little room in our thought closet for anything else!" Jennifer Rothschild

So friends...what did you hang in your thought closet this week?

Boy oh boy, I am doing a little spring cleaning in mine and there is a lot of junk in there. I can tell this purging of my closet is going to be hard.

His Word says He gives beauty for ashes, and honestly...some of the things I've been hanging in there are nothing but nasty ashes. I'm ready to roll up my sleeves and toss out the ashes and watch God hang some beautiful new garments. :)

Oh my, cleaning out the thought closet huh? Funny, I've been studying hard on thoughts and words for about 3 weeks now and it has been an amazing journey and I am amazed at how long it is taking to get all cleaned up in my thought life. It's nice though to be focused on meditating on the word throughout the day. I am a much happier and thankful person than when I started.

You know, I was over at Jenny Hope's blog and she had a photo posted and I said that sure does look like Stephanie over there in the corner. I guess it was you!! Are you guys friends? She seems like a great lady I'd like to meet someday, you too of course.

Girlfriend, I KNOW. This study is really doing a number on me, as well! For someone who thought her thought closet was in pretty decent shape, I found out it was in need of an extreme makeover! Incredible.

Love you Steph,
