Step One

My journey on the path of knowing who I am in Christ has begun as I have started working through the steps in Celebrate Recovery. Granted, I am only on step one and barely scratched the surface of the 26 week program but I am thrilled to be working through my life issues and figuring out how to live in freedom through Christ.

I was going to write more but I think that about covers it. :)

Cleaning up and Cleaning out

God has a very interesting way of helping and motivating us to clean up which often, for me, leads to cleaning out. This weekend was spent hastily cleaning the kids' house. While we cleaned, we discovered things that needed repairs.

I find it interesting that when we decide to clean our hearts, the same thing happens. I often find that when I start cleaning one area of my heart from a habit or bad coping mechanism, another is revealed that needs repairing. It usually happens because once I've dealt with the first part of it, it uncovers some hurt or hang up that is causing more damage.

Thank GOD, literally, for Celebrate Recovery because I am in a position finally, where I can work on my hurts, habits and hang ups and apply strategies to ACTUALLY help me... well, HEAL!

I like this blog layout

In 11 days I leave OR and head to BC. I can't wait for pudgy cheek kisses, hugs from kids taller than I am and ... cookies. How lame, but it's cookies I miss... Fudgeeos and Peek Freans Fruit Cremes.

I will miss Saturday gaming and my diet Mountain Dew... not to mention Cherry Coke Zero and it will be weird to see Walkmart with no wine or beer.
