To Pray

d42902a7a6136d67e8f719f9d6a4a478I see all the hurt that is out there and I can’t take it. It upsets me, regardless if it should or not. I don’t like that a lot of the pain and suffering is from things that are self-induced or brought on senselessly by other people.

I have tried really hard to think that maybe that person is going through something I don’t know about. That is why they are acting the way they are.  I know that it makes me feel better to walk away when I think of it that way.

I am not perfect. Lord knows that. I am trying to be a better version of myself daily. I have three daughters that look up to me. I also do a lot of things with and for others. I want them to be proud that they are associated with me. I want them to think of me as a positive person who always tried to do what was best. Hurting someone for a quick sense of  gratification is not going to get me that.

Let us all take a moment to really think about how we can be a better person to those around us. I have made up my mind to pray more. I mean to really stop and pray more. When I see people hurting, when I see hate, or whenever I am called to do it. I am not going to say “I’ll pray for you,” and then never do it or remember to do it. I am going to take a moment right then and there to really pray for them. It won’t cost me anything but a minute or two of my time. Time well spent if you ask me.

We can all do it. Something to better ourselves, and those around us. What will you be doing?

A List

A List.

It is getting colder here in Alaska. I can’t complain as it has been so nice for so long.

We still don’t have snow – but I have been told if it snowed it would actually be warmer.

Is this where I wish for snow?

Reading. I miss it. I wish I could find some more time to squeeze in a good read now and again that isn’t mandated by school.

Friends. I have them. I love them. I just wish I had more time for them.

Sleep. I love it so much. I just wish I didn’t so that I could have more time for other things (see above as one example).

Goals. I have them. Lots of them. I wish I didn’t so that maybe I would feel more accomplished instead of just always working on one.

Clothes. I am not ready for long sleeves and still feeling cold.

Boots. I bought two pairs and I just don’t like them. How long will it be before I just get rid of them?

I need to get rid of junk, and stuff I bought and just don’t like but am hanging onto for some reason.

Church. I miss my Sunday school class. I miss my old preacher who is now in Africa. I miss you Josh and Trisha and Brooke and Conner and Jenna and Piper.

Giving. I wish I could make more money so I could give more money. I have three missionaries/missions that I want to give to but I am struggling with how to be able to do it.

I need to be patient and wait on the Lord.

I am not a patient person.

I want a coffee right now, but I can’t see the reason for going to Starbucks at 8:22 other than I am too lazy to take 5 minutes to prep the coffee maker.

I need one of those K-Cup machines.

I have empty picture frames in my house. One of them is on my desk staring at me with the original paper in it telling me what size it is.

We are getting family pictures taken on Saturday.

I have so many ideas of things I want to do and accomplish (remember that statement I made about having a lot of goals?).

I feel like I never rest or just do nothing.

I still seem to think there is a reason that Nick will disagree with the above statement.

What are the chances that if I just throw away everything in my nightstand and on it – I will realize in a week that I needed something that was there. I have not used anything off of it in ……

Emerald. The rank I made in BeachBody. I am happy and just want to see it continue.

This is all for now.

Time to go make more preparations for another goal I am working on.
