Today is the perfect day to start a new segment to my blog. I am going to call it "Make-over Monday". It kind of just popped into my heart over the weekend.
Mondays often seem to start with such a crazy rush and a little too much busyness in our home after the weekend ;) As a school mom (and NOT a "natural" morning person) - having to drag myself up early, prepare healthy breakfasts and make sure they are eaten (and not fed to the already well-fed dogs!), check lunch boxes, re-do hair for the third time and then make sure school bags are all packed and ready ... well, you know the crazy drill, by the time I get a chance to breathe, I realize that I am already late for work! I just found myself to be in such a crazy rush through each day negotiating my time between 3 different jobs, full time mommy in the arvies, and wanting so much to be a great home maker but having too little time to get stuck into making my home all the things that I would love it to be for my family that e-v-e-n-t-u-a-l-y last week I took it all to the Lord and asked Him where I need to adjust so that I can fit into my day the things that He wants me to pursue right now in my life. Well - He spoke loud and clear and I feel like I have so much space to breathe and dream. The Lord showed me that I need to lay down one of the admin roles that takes up my mornings so that I can have my mornings to get stuck into His Word and get around to finally being the home maker that I so desire to be. So ladies ... watch this space!! I may have just laid down an income that I relied on - but my Father God knows just how to provide for this family and give my family a woman of peace instead of a stressed out mamma!!!
And so at the start of my first free week, here starts "Make-over Monday". I will post 'heart' make-overs that He is working with me through, practical home projects, style make-overs and whatever else He prompts me to share with you with all my newly found free time :) Just want you bloggy friends to know that reading some of your amazing posts has encouraged me and given me fresh vision to take this leap of faith.
Lots of love,
ps - PLEASE share with me some of the "make-overs" that you are undergoing too (home, heart, whatever!!!) ... I can't wait to hear!!!
