I feel like a BIG sticky note!

Well ladies, I think it's going to be one of those days! Before I even came downstairs I already had accumulated 18 things on my to do list. I have sticky notes on my computer and on my phone, I even sent myself a memo in an email!

Post a new blog! (check!)

Clean shower head  (use vineager to disolve built up grime!) yuck!

Clean the Shower!

Dust bathroom blinds

Dust room

Dust Blinds

finish Chairs

make a Craigslist ad

reupholster Stool

Tea stuff

place an order for Uppercaseliving

Print and hang up pictures

Buy Aplliance spray

Make a lasagna

Ribbon for my st pattys day tray

Buy a St pattys hat!

Repaint chalkboard wall

Buy a paint roller

Buy a paint for cabinets

However not every one of the tasks needs to get done today but If I want to stay on top of things I have to keep them on my list! Otherwise they'll end up being like the "vent cover" that never got put back on the wall after I painted. (note to myslef...add that to your to do list!)

I'm sure all you ladies can relate? or am I the only one?
I don't think so!

With a note so long, even a woman with an assistant can get overwhelmed! So what do we do? We need to remind ourselves that we have the exact same amount of time that were given to Helen Keller, Michelangelo, Mother Teresa, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein. We can do this! One task at a time!

I think what happens is we get so distracted by our cell phones, facebook, and texting.

If you have a list of things to do and feel a little overwhelmed today, try to turn your phone off for atleast an hour. You would be amazed with what you will accomplish in just 60 minutes!

A good friend suggested to me yesterday that I should get a "Do Not Disturb" sign for my bedroom. So when I need to study that I can hang the sign on my door. I thought it was silly but I may just give that a try!

We need to find ways to help us get all those things done so we can be the women that God designed us to be. So ultimately we can open up our schedules to be used by Him!

Today let's choose to use our next 24 hours to be productive not only for our business, self, home etc, but for God...put him on your list!

So now that I have one thing off my list (my blog) I'll venture to tackle a few more while anxiously excited to leave room on the sticky note for God. Have your way Lord! Have a great productive day ladies!

What's Inside You?

The other day I ran across this website Tagxedo it actually grabs information from your blog or website and creates an image with it. This is what was created for me, and I love it!

It seriously made me think, Wow, people see what and who you are!
In Philippians 4:8 (NIV) it says, Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.

This image was created by the words that I type on the internet, and they are also the things I think about. Today I encourage you to focus on all the things you think, say and listen to. You know what they say...

Garbage in, is Garbage out! Let's choose to fill ourselves up with things that would better us! Have a blessed day!

Cleaning House

Yesterday I was cleaning my house when I did that one thing every woman shouldn't do! You know the task that leads to another, which leads to another? We'll I did it...I moved out the fridge to clean behind it!

To my surprise I ran into a few invitations,
three magnets and a lot of DUST!

I took a picture right away because this is how our lives are with Christ. To others we look like were all clean but behind the scenes and behind the smiles, we have some issues (dust) that God wants to clean out. This was not a job I had planned to do today, and that's how we feel sometimes when God brings up an issue that we don't particularly want to deal with.

We try to "keep the dust hidden" we say its okay no one can see it!

But just because other people cant see it doesn't mean its not there!

God sees it! And He wants to clean you up!

Picture it like this:

When you pay a very high price for something you want to make sure it is "kept up" and you protect it. That is what God wants to do with you.  He owns you and it’s time to begin the work of claiming and cleaning up what He has paid for. God actually wants to go in each room, He wants to go through your junk, He wants to clean up your mess!

It’s called sanctification.

When He sets you apart and starts cleaning you up.

It doesn't always feel good, but in the end you'll feel GREAT!

To get my floor cleaned it actually took a few spot to be scrubbed,
are you willing on allowing him to "scrub you?"

So that you too can be nice and shiny and NEW?

1 John 1:8: "If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us."

I pray that you allow God to start searching in those areas you know need to be cleaned.
