Thirty Days of Blogging Day 4

Day 04- A habit that you wish you didn't have

I have a bad habit of not saying no.  i don't use it enough. i am working on that though. I tend to stretch myself way too thin.  I have put this on the altar and am, working with God's help to use wisdom in all that i attach myself to. i don't want to be burnt out nor do I what to do so much that nothing i do is right. i know I am not the only one that struggles with this, so what have you or someone you know to get this habit under control?

Thanks for reading!

Danielle is 7!...and 30 Day of Blogging - Day 2

I cannot let the day go by without wishing my darling daughter Danielle a Happy 7th Birthday!!!

We have a fun weekend planned for the little one and her friends. We can't wait to celebrate such a wonderful little girl!!
Day 02- The meaning behind your Blogger name
My blogger name hmmm, well I wanted my name to represent who I am and what I believe.  So I thought of this Living According to the Master's Plan.  Daily I am striving to line my life up to the word and be all that God wants me to be as wife, mother, sister, friend.  As the scripture says in the Message Bible Philippians 3:12-14... I'm not saying that I have this all together, that I have it made. But I am well on my way, reaching out for Christ, who has so wondrously reached out for me. Friends, don't get me wrong: By no means do I count myself an expert in all of this, but I've got my eye on the goal, where God is beckoning us onward—to Jesus. I'm off and running, and I'm not turning back. 
I am not perfect. I strive to live as Christ would have me to live and be an example to those around me.  So there you have it, my reasoning for naming my blog Living According to the Master's Plan.
