Living Sober, Riding Free

For a great inspirational post today, head on over to my dad's blog.

I realize I haven't posted in a while. I'm thinking about many things and hope to post soon. Many of the things on my heart lately are covered in my dad's post today. For some reason, God has brought me a season of serious breaking free. It has been hard for me to really break free of the things that have kept me bound because my chains were not the ones you recognize and hear so much about. I have never had any problems with drugs, alcohol, sex addiction, etc. It seems to take longer to recognize the serious bondage of food addiction, fear of loss, fear of ministry, and idols of control because these types of bondage are acceptable in the church where drugs and alcohol are not.

Anyway, I'm working through Beth Moore's Breaking Free, Gari Meacham's Truly Fed, and Marla Ciley's Sink Reflections. I am constantly amazed at how much the three have in common. The Holy Spirit is doing some stuff. Even the last book, which seems out of place, is being used of God to change my life and my home. I'll write more later.

Cute Giveaway!!!

Daisy Smiles Custom Jewelry (which is super cute) is giving away a $50 gift certificate on Kathryn Bilberry's blog this week! I'm trying to win and you should too. You can have the jewelry customized with your child's name or whatever you want. Head on over and check it out!

(ps I'm always trying to win things on The Pioneer Woman. I feel like this gives slightly better odds. My fingers are crossed!)

Just when you think you're the most embarrassing person alive, I come along on my blog to show you that you're not. I am.

I've been trying to organize today. Which is why the maternity clothes box was out. Which is how Benjamin got some things out of it.

Benjamin has been terrified of people knocking on the door lately. He screams and jumps into my arms.

So, just now, one of Jon's employees came to the door to drop off some money from a customer. Benjamin screamed. I picked him up and opened the door without really paying attention to what Benjamin had in his hand. I talked to Zack, took the cash, and smiled at Benjamin waving to the Zack excitedly. Then I closed the door. And realized what he was waving in Zack's face. A package of maternity panties. Size large. Okay, that's a lie. Extra large.

And I thought, Don't you wish your girlfriend was hot like me?
