Thankfulness & God's Faithfulness

I'm so very thankful for this year.  God has always been so faithful to me.  He's protected me, loved me, and given my joy in hard times.  I remember this time last year, I did not want to celebrate any Holidays.  I did not want to celebrate Thanksgiving or Christmas.  I had a heart that wasn't ready to move on or let go.  I had a stubborn heart, one that wasn't willing to listen or heal.  I had a broken heart, one that was not allowing me to be thankful for yet another year.  Even then God provided ways for me to heal and the space I needed, in providing opportunities to stay home for Thanksgiving and to be traveling all through Christmas and New Years.  God was so good to me.  Today I look back and think of just how far God has taken me.  I'm thankful He protected me from a very bad situation and gave me healing in that.  I'm thankful He took me far away from two really hard circumstances and allowed me to start over.  I look back over this last year and the h

Lockdown WHAT?

During this lockdown.  Stay at home order.  Quarantine.  Whatever you want to call it, period, what has everyone been up to?  What keeps one busy when you're stuck at home.  No work.  Online school.  Routines are messed up.  What even is a schedule anymore?
I mean my family is a homeschool family and my dad has been mostly working from home for the past few months, so really not much has changed for us.  We're pretty good at keeping ourselves busy and entertained.  But at the same time we have no church groups.  No Sunday services.  No coffee dates with friends or venturing out in a our new town.  It has been hard as we had just found somewhat of a routine and trying our best to make friends in our new home town and then this happened.  So that has been hard.  And most of my family is a 'get out of the house' kind of people.  That can seriously mean anything as long as we get out once a day, new shops, coffee or lunch, or at least grocery shopping.  Anything really.  So now we're mostly stuck at home, trying our best to at least get out and walk once a day and not eat our guts out because what else are we to do.
So we've created a challenge for each other.

  • 100 push ups a day for 30 days

It's suppose to do something amazing for your body.  But I mean let's be real... us girls can hardly do 'real' push ups, and for sure can't do 100- so we've stuck with 50 a day which is something.  I'm not even sure my parents are actually doing it or just saying they will do it... eventually.  
I've added-
  • 100 squats a day
To that challenge.

AND to add to that list we:

  • Facetime friends almost every day for at least a couple/few hours
  • Read- a lot
  • Blog & All that
  • Try to find new business starts ups
  • Sleep
  • Watch Movies
  • Did I mention walk...
  • Create websites
  • Get my new residency squared away... officially have the right license plates.  Good-bye California plates.  Tears.
  • Buy things I shouldn't because I don't have a job, but at least I'll be able to rollar skate now.  I'd say that it's worth it.
