second law

Deuteronomy 6:6-7 (NIV)

6 These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. 7 Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.

Today this verse found its way to me and it really spoke to my heart. It is so specific about your children. We always say, jokingly, that there is no guidebook for children. I believe that the Bible really is. The last few months I have been more mindful of my children and their ever blossoming (beautiful, unique,) personalities. Anthony, my ever cautious, sensitive, compassionate boy. Irene, my tough, fun loving, daredevil little girl. So different from each other, so alike at the same time, each child as unique as a fingerprint but yet occupying the same hand. How do I raise these children? How do I not make a mistake? What happens when one method works on one child and not on another and you are fresh out of ideas? Yet, God doesn't make mistakes. He gave these little wonders to us. It stands to reason, that if we trust him, we can't possibly go wrong.

A first time

So the main function of this whole thing is to, at first, be a sort of weight loss diary. Now before you groan and navigate away from me, let me explain. I won't be posting what I eat or how many reps I do. I am not even going to worry about my grammar or punctuation (I don't have much to worry about anyway as I am blissfully unaware of every mistake I make). I do want to have an emotional outlet about everything. Right now I happen to need to lose about 40+ pounds, so quite a few of my emotions are centered on that. I will post updated pictures of me and sometimes my family and even an odd random picture. I would love to have some moral support, questions, suggestions and just plain old comments and that is what I hope can keep me going. By the way, I am a huge procrastinator so I am also doing this out of a twisted sense of curiosity to see if I can keep up with my blog.....So if after three days if I fizzle out...don't say you were not warned, in a roundabout way.
