Word Filled Wednesday: Remember the Sabbath

Google Friend Connect is disappearing soon, but I’d love for us to stay together. You can read my blog in your favorite reader through my RSS feed, join the conversation on Facebook or chat with me on Twitter. Make sure you give a shout out and let me know you’re there!

Word Filled Wednesday: Exodus 20:9 Rush rush rush, it always seems like I’m in a hurry to catch up on stuff. That’s my life, 24/7. Whoa, wait! Did I just say 24/7? Yes, I did. And that’s a problem. The Lord tells us in Exodus 20:10 that the seventh day is the Lord’s day and on that day we nor anyone in our households are to do any work, that day is to be reserved for rest and worship, not for catching up on laundry or balancing the check book or whatever we come up with to do on that day.

We are to observe the Sabbath by keeping it holy and focusing on renewing ourselves in Him. So I challenge you as well as myself to keep the seventh day holy through prayer and consecration to the Lord our God.

ABCs of Me

Google Friend Connect is disappearing soon, but I’d love for us to stay together. You can read my blog in your favorite reader through my RSS feed, join the conversation on Facebook or chat with me on Twitter. Make sure you give a shout out and let me know you’re there!

DaenelTY’all know I love myself some memes. I think they’re fun and it gives me (and you) a chance to discover new blogs, find out interesting tidbits about other parts of the country (world) and, well, have some fun. So I said all of that to say, I’ve discovered a new meme (and a new blog) that I want to share.

Kita at Say What U Wanna wrote a post all about herself using the alphabets and I thought it was cute, interesting, random and fun, so I decided to give it a try. So here goes:

Age ~ 38, but I used to add 5 years so that people would say “Dang, you look good for your age”, now I tell the truth because, well, I do look good for my age. LOL

Bed Size ~ King

Chore that you hate ~ Cleaning the bathroom, grocery shopping, washing windows, cleaning up after the dog, was I supposed to stop at one?

Dogs ~ A Jack Russell Terrier/Chihuahua mix named Squeekerz, click here to see pictures of him

Essential start to the day ~ Check my messages, but it should be thanking God for allowing me to wake up, that changes now (don’t want to take Him for granted)

Favorite color ~ purple

Gold or silver ~ Um, why do I have to choose?

Height ~ 5’5½”

Instrument you play ~ None

Job ~ CEO of Tucker Enterprises  aka stay~at~home~wife~and~mom

Live ~ Missouri

Movie ~ Imitation of Life starring Lana Turner and Juanita Moore

Nickname ~ Dani

Overnight hospital stay ~ When I was born, you can read the story by clicking here (it involves a car accident) and when I had my kids

Pet Peeve ~ People

Quote ~ “Success is nothing without someone you love to share it with” and “You want my arm to fall off?” Dude, it’s Billy Dee Williams, he could’ve said the alphabets and I’d have been happy

Right or left handed ~ Right

Siblings ~ 4 sisters and 1 brother

Time it takes you to get ready ~ depends on when and where we’re going

Underwear ~ What?

Vegetable you hate ~ Okra

What makes you run late ~ I get distracted by shiny things

Let’s Stay Together, Even After Google Friend Connect is Gone

Facebook: Living Outside the Stacks

I love that song by Al Green, whenever I hear it on the radio, I just start singing and swaying… But, lately, I’ve been thinking about it in relationship to you, my readers. You see, I’ve heard that Google Friend Connect will be going by way of the cassette tape real soon. A moment of silence for all the songs that were recorded from the radio with a big ol’ pause while you tried to skip the DJ’s voice overs. According to my stats, there’s about 236 of y’all who follow this blog via GFC and I don’t wanna lose nary one of y’all.

According to TechCrunch, GFC is being replaced with Google+ in the near future so all of us bloggers have to figure out another way to keep connected. I’ve created a Google+ page for this blog but I’m not sure how or if I’ll use it just yet. If you’re using Google+ already I’d be interested to know how you set it up and if you’ve found it useful or overwhelming. I already have a Facebook page for this blog and, well, we have a pretty good thing going on over there and I don’t want to disrupt it.  Besides, I think trying to manage this blog, Facebook and Twitter are enough without adding anything else to the mix.

Anyway, I’d love for you to join me on Facebook ~ you can keep up with my blog posts, join in the conversations, share pictures and just have a real good time. You can also continue to get my blog posts in your reader of choice by clicking here. But whatever you do, let’s stay together… See how I brought that back around, I’m clever like that.
