May for Me

One of my blog friends, Tonya @ Hillbilly Handiworks, introduced me to the idea her and her friend @ Marcia's Crafty Sewing & Quilting to have the month of May for Me.

"May for Me" can mean many things to us. For me, this will be a time a renewal and refreshing my mind along with working on a few projects and therapy. I admit I am not good with schedules for myself. I am fine usually alone but when others are around my schedule never happens. Therapy and things I have the urge to do go out the window. I am a wife and mother who loves to take care of my family and others. However, I cannot do what I used to do and need some time to figure out what is best for me. So, with that said, the month of May will be a time to figure out what is best for me, leaning on God's word and direction and learning what is best. We will see how God uses this time in "May for Me". I will post some during this time to share with you all but also to keep me on track and remembering.

"I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God."
Romans 12:1-2

Have a great week!
God bless you and keep you,

I think that is a wonderful wonderful idea. Only I am kind of thinking April is the month I should be focusing on myself and more personal goals. A lot of my activities are very busy now, and therapy is at some major turning points right now too. I need to focus inward right now.

I have been taking daily time for prayer and doing writing responses as part of my journey this Lent and Easter. It is so hard to find even that 20 minutes of quiet time.

I need an "April for______ " name.

Sarah, Romans 12:1-2 is a good verse for May and the May for Me theme. Sometimes we do forget to take care of ourselves when we are concerned with caring for others.

Guilty of this myself, I know I need to adopt some healthier habits.

Hope you are having a good day ♥
