*A couple of months ago, I posted about needing to set some limits on the time I spent blogging. Taking Thursdays off has been a great decision for me. It was really tough at first, but now I find it's become a habit. Sometimes I've been tempted to check a blog on that day, but I just keep Bloglines closed so I won't know what I'm missing. =) It has made Fridays a little trickier because there are more posts to read, but it's still less clicking around than before. The timer is still a good tool for me, as well.
*I'd also posted in April about needing to be more consistent and intentional with quiet time. The move made beginning a new routine difficult, but now that we're settled, I've started having quiet time in the early mornings. It really is the best time for me, and I decided I just needed to make it happen. I still do some reading and journaling before bed, but I decided during my retreat that I wanted to do these 3 things before I started the rest of my day: read the Bible, spend some time in prayer, and think of someone that I want to specifically encourage that day.
*It's been harder to get in the habit of praying intentionally for my son. When praying for Eric, I use a little card that I've mentioned before, and that really helps me with what to pray. I recently printed something I found (via Joy's blog) about praying for our children, and
I've been using that in the morning to pray for Nathan.
Just wanted to share some updates as I continue on my journey . . .
