The rest and recuperation that I desperately needed has finally been made possible by Mid-Winter Break. I have spent my time in South Carolina with a few dear friends. This little man has put many of smiles on my face. We are taking him to the zoo tomorrow so I will post more pictures soon. (and better quality ones, I must say)

I am wornout.

My sentiments exactly

On Practicing

I am suffering from a serious case of blogger's block. There is a sufficient amount of feelings, thoughts, and events to discuss, but I can't seem to form them into a coherent post. Believe it or not I have tried several times. I begin, backspace, begin, delete, and begin again only to click Return to list of posts without maneuvering my mouse close to Publish Post. But alas, I have been dutifully reminded by a loving, faithful, caring, and knowledgeable friend, who leads only by example, to "practice what you preach." That being said I will continue in the way of the bloggers.

A prevalent thought lately is how blessed I truly am. God has been so good to me in many ways. My life has not taken all the turns I would have chosen, but I am reminded daily that God has my best interest at heart. Psalm 56:9- But this one thing I know, God is for me. How amazing it is to know that God is on my side. He is rooting and cheering for me. Not only does He want me to lead a successful Christian life more than I want to, He does everything short of making the decisions for me.

In the midst of all the warm fuzzies of serving Christ, He has also reminded me that I have a few more areas in which to convert myself to His likeness. For the past few weeks we have talked in Wisdom Literature about "abhoring sin." Abhoring is equivalent to hating. Do I hate sin or am I more conformed to this world than I thought. Worldliness is deeper in form than standards and dresscodes. It permeates your thoughts and conduct. As a Christian in a fallen world I must be vigilent not to allow my worldview to be formed by the "world." The way I view sin is part of a Christian worldview. If I allow myself to mock sin by entertaining myself with it in any form I will become accustom to it. Sin will not be a big deal. The ramifications of such I dare not imagine.
