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.
I’m linking up with:
I’d like to thank the hubs for helping me put this post together.
Y’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:

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.
