I have been wanting to try something new for a while. Well, new to me. There are lots who share 5 random things on their blogs on Fridays, and I always love reading them, so I thought I would try it out.
I love peeking into others' lives. So here's a peek into mine this week-
1. Years ago, we made some major changes in our lives and have tried to do life in a more natural way, including health things. I love essential oils and we use them A LOT! But sometimes, things just get out of hand. Like our last two weeks. Three if us have been sick, only one has improved. So this is what a doctor gave two of us today-
Pitiful, I know. So much for natural.
2. My second daughter is a senior this year and is in the midst of college shopping. She got accepted into her 6th college yesterday! And I think she has FINALLY made a decision. Announcement to follow soon!
3. Moving in the winter is a challenge. OK, so that is completely random, but it is so true. Programs are in mid-swing, it is cold so everyone is hibernating in their houses, and well, it is just harder to meet people!
4. I am thankful for church and church-friends. We have found the most wonderful church and met the most wonderful people there. They have embraced and loved our family from day one and everyday we marvel at God's provision.
5. Anything that takes over our life and replaces God is an idol! OK, another completely random thought, but it has been on my mind. If all I ever do is talk about food and dieting, it has become an idol. If all I ever talk about is my kid's sport or hobby, it has become an idol in my life. If all I ever do is talk about working out, it has become an idol. If all I ever talk about is curriculum, it has become an idol. Yes, those things are fine and good- in moderation. Just like everything else. But honestly, friends, the only thing we should be consumed with is God! Just saying.
So there you have it, 5 on Friday!
