When Sinners Say "I Do" Discovering the Power of the Gospel for Marriage

The gospel is something we need in every area of our lives.  In marriage and in singleness.  In joy and in sorrow.  In good times and in hard times.  When life feels good and when life feels confusing.  This book showed so much of my need for Jesus and His grace. It calls us to look at our own sins and not be so easy to point out the sins of those around us.   It shows the great gravity of our sins.  We can all tend to point fingers and defend or blame our sins on others or life circumstances.  I think especially today it is so easy to do this and not truly see our sins.  "It is wrong, not because of what it does to me, or my spouse, or child, or neighbor, but because it is an act of rebellion against the infinitely holy and majestic God." -Jerry Bridges "There can be no small sins against a great God." -J.I. Packer Dave Harvey mentions in the book that with true sorrow of our "little sins", our awareness of God and His mercy grow. Be quick to see our own

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.
