finally finished.

20 Jan

First off, I have to say that I have an addict on my hands. Not just any normal addict. A ‘Words with Friends’ addict. I think he has up to 11 games going right now. It makes me laugh because most of his opponants are actually not friends at all. They are completely random people, people who are probably half way around the world. Kinda creepy and neat at the same time if you ask me.  The only thing thats irritating is that sometimes in the middle of the night I hear a chime come from his side of the bed. What the heck, people! Go sleep! Guess I need to sign him up for an AA type meeting.

Annnnyyways, It’s almost Friday! Which means this work week is almost finished :] and that means…. sleeping in! I love sleeping in, but if I sleep too late then I waste half of the day, and right now I don’t really want to do that. Since Christmas is over and all our decorations are up in the closet, I feel like I have a blank slate again to decorate. I’m ready for our place to be finally finished, though. I still haven’t really done much to our bedroom and I’m not a big fan of that. I have tons of stuff to hang and decorate with, but it just hasn’t happened yet. I’m really going to try to start and finish that room this weekend. We’ll see how that goes. I have so many projects going right now and I have a hard time ever finishing them for some reason. I really need to work on that. One thing that I’ve almost finished is our eating and prep area (food is important in this house!).

In our kitchen we have a vinyl chalkboard right next to the pantry door. Since the day we put it up, we have had a verse written at the top that has really spoken to us during that season of our lives. Just recently, after cleaning up from Christmas, the Lord placed a new verse on my heart for Jeremy and I.

“And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue His work until it is finally finished on the day when Jesus Christ returns.” Philippians 1:6

When the verse was brought to my attention, I immediately turned to Jeremy (who was graciously folding laundry) and asked him what he thought about that verse for this season of our lives. We decided it was perfect for us! Of course, that’s how the Lord is. He’s perfect. He knows what we need, all of the time. He knows when we need a little encouragement. A little moral booster, if you will. He even knows when we need a little butt kicking. This just so happened to be a booty kick for us. We constantly talk about how we want to finish this or that, or how we wished that we were consistant in different areas of our lives. It’s a big topic for us at the dinner table or while we are lying in bed. For us, this verse meant that we need to learn not only to bring something to completion, but also to be disciplined in every nook and cranny of our being. I love having this verse in a central location in our home because it is a constant reminder to stay focused and to finish. Laziness is becoming uncommon in our home, while proaction is now the norm. I love it. I don’t think we will take this verse down for a very long time, unless of course the Lord speaks a new nugget of truth. :]

What has the Lord been teaching you during this season of your life? I’d love to hear it and be encouraged!

    Oh my! I had to delete words with friends from my phone when me and Daniel were sitting in bed playing it at 12:30 at night!

    I love my words games with Jeremy, and I am not a random person! Please don’t take it away from him 🙂 I love you verse and what it is speaking into your life right now. I might need to do the same thing by posting it…you and me, we are good at procrastinating! Oh, and I love your note about the coats, ” we wear coats when it’s cold”!! Love it! Miss you muchas!
