I’ve Moved (31 Days)

Well, we made it! We landed over on WordPress!! I’m am over the moon excited to make the move. One of the things on my “Do The Next Thing” of 31 days was to move from blogger to WordPress and then do a little decorating.

As you can see it’s just white and gray. It feels like moving into a new house and decorating the walls. One thing that I may or may not have shared here is I love to decorate. It’s so much fun!

My goal is to make it feel cozy and welcoming here. That’s what my website designer and I are working on over the next week. If your looking for someone to work with on your site visit K Harman Designs  and tell Kim I sent you.  You will love her!

I’m also giving myself a little bit of grace for not being here every single day of this 31 days of writing journey. One of these days we will get to day 31. *Insert laughter* I mean who moves in the middle of a 31 day writing journey? Umm, me…

We’ll friends, I have to unpack these boxes and figure out some designs. Until then, I’ll leave the light on for you. I’m looking forward to our time together.

Dearest daughters of all generations (31 Days)

Dearest daughters of all generations,
As I sit down to write this, I cannot help to think of all your sweet beautiful faces. I wish we could gather on the other side of the screen and talk like close friends. There is something on my heart today, so lean in and join me over at Women Walking with Jesus an extension of LisaShawCares.com to read what is on my heart today.
You are dearly loved. 
If you are stopping by from Women Walking with Jesus, I want to extend a warm welcome. If there is something that you are carrying and you would like someone to pray or talk with please feel free to email me by clicking HERE.
You don’t have to carry this anymore. Hand your overloaded bag over to Jesus. He loves you. He is not made at you. He understands what your going through.  
If you have never surrendered your life to Christ will you consider doing that today? Click HERE to find out how to have a personal relationship with Christ. If you accept him into your heart or rededicate your life to him, I would love to celebrate that with you. Email me so we can celebrate this together. 
With grace and prayers beautiful one,
Rachel:) 

Remodeling (31Days)

Part of this 31 days of doing the next thing was to do a bit of remodeling here. My friend who does web design is taking on the task of the remodeling, reshaping and helping me remove this blog from blogger to WordPress. I’m looking forward to the change. If you need a new design contact Kim at  K Harman Designs.

Rest (31 Days)

Taking time to rest is imperative to each one of us. Today, I’m doing just that. I have a zillion things on the to-do list, however after this week, I’m resting. The travel softball team my husband coaches had a big fundraiser this week. As the coaches wife, this means serving where my husband needed me. There were lots of last minute things that needed done.

I know this 31 days of doing the next thing might not seem too exciting around here. I’m okay with that. When I started this journey I had ideas what it might look like. Doing the next thing is teaching me alot actually, even if you don’t see it in the words typed out here on this blog…..
And today, “Doing The Next Thing” is teaching me how I need to take time to Rest.

When was the last time you pushed your “To Do List” aside and rested?

31 Days Friday Post

There are times when doing the next thing means just showing up. Because showing up here is all I have tonight. It’s late. The clock reads 10:57 pm as I type this. 

This has been a full day. This has been a full week. This week has pulled me in many different directions. Some of those directions were meant with opposition. I had to press on and press though.
Tonight, as this day winds down, it isn’t about having the best 31 days blog post. It’s about showing up and following through. 

Tonight as I head to bed, this scripture from Philippians 3:12-16 comes to mind.

“Not that I have already obtained this or am already perfect, but I press on to make it my own, because Christ Jesus has made me his own. Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.Let those of us who are mature think this way, and if in anything you think otherwise, God will reveal that also to you. Only let us hold true to what we have attained.”

Good Night Y’all This mama is tired.

Sunday Scripture (31 Days)

 In him we were also chosen, having been predestined according to the plan of him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of his will, in order that we, who were the first to put our hope in Christ, might be for the praise of his glory. And you also were included in Christ when you heard the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation. When you believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit, who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are God’s possession—to the praise of his glory”  Ephesians 1:11-14
