Balance in Life

Bloggers, thank you for your advice in winding down. Yesterday was my first "calm" day. I'm on a "sane" schedule and will be for a couple of weeks and then the project is complete. My housework will fill my hours with much work, but I am soooooooooo looking forward to reconnecting to friends and family. A little rest will be a welcome treat.

I took a couple of hours to just walk in the sun and pray yesterday. I've been praying for urgent needs for weeks. But yesterday I just strolled and thanked God for all He is to me. As a widow I have the capacity to love the Lord in ways I've never known before. To any of you fearing having to be alone let me assure you the Bible is not speaking figuratively...He will never forsake us, His own.

I love to read; so as David of Red Letter Believers said...
Wow...looks like you got a gift. Ice Tea. A good book. and a long nap. Enjoy!

Now, this is where you can help me out. What is a great book you've read lately? Name a decent movie I can rent or go to that you enjoyed.

Letting go of the time structure needed for this intense project is beginning to feel great. Oh, to find God's ideal balance of tension, rest; concern, joy; up, down....the good life in Christ.

Remember I'm looking for titles of books and movies.....

Thrive In Christ

Who I Am In Christ by Neil Anderson

For several months we will center on this book to pursue Thriving in our Christian journey.

Neil challenges us with: "Do you know who you are in God's eyes? We are no longer products of our past. We are primarily products of Christ's work on the cross. Who we are determines what we do.

You are not who you are in Christ because of the things you have done, you are in Christ because of what He has done. He died and rose again so that you and I could live in the FREEDOM of His love."

That's just the introduction. More to follow.
