Day 23/30

Day Twenty three - Something you crave for a lot.


My number one thing that I crave is to lie down.  Not even to necessarily sleep but to lay down.  I love to lie down and read or lie down and watch TV or lie down and watch the world go by.  It's the thing I crave the most.  But I also worry that I'm lying down too much.  So it's a catch 22.
 
The number one food that I crave is a toss up between french fries and ice cream.  Those are the things that I get cravings for.  I'll eat just about any version of them.  I'm not picky, though I do adore Red Robin's steak fries, NUM!  And I get a hankering for Pumpkin Pie, Winter White Chocolate, and Baseball Nut from Baskin Robbins from time to time. 
 
The number one movie that I crave is You've Got Mail.  I can sit lie down and watch that movie back to back for an entire day.  I know because I did it one time when it was on one of those Turner networks that does crazy stuff like that.
 
The number one place that I crave is Edisto Beach in South Carolina.  I spent time camping there as a kid and I still crave those carefree sunburned days.
 
The number one person I crave is Joel.  I am sad to see him go and glad to hear him return each day he has to go to work.  I'm thankful that he goes to work and provides for us, but I miss him the entire time he's gone and anticipate his return.
 
The number one car that I crave is a Mini Cooper.  I want one, bad.  I want it customized, too. They have it in diesel across the border, but I'd take the gas version or any version if I could just have one!
 
The number one restaurant that I crave is Duke's BBQ in Ridgeville, SC.  All you can eat or carry out only open two days a week and food that is delicious and reminds me of home.
 
The number one craving that I have in my life is more Jesus.  I love God and it never quite feels like I have enough.  I love to read the Bible, serve Him, and pray, but every day I wake up with the craving to do it all over again and to do it better with more love this time. 
 
What do you crave?

Saturday Rant: Dominoes

I always find it interesting how life can be very much so like dominoes sometimes. Let's see, my husband went out of town this last fall. I volunteered to preach for him while he was gone. I told a friend about the online copy of the sermon. She forwarded it to a few folks, next thing you know, I'm doing a short testimony at my weekly Bible study. What I'm really wondering it "What next?"

You see, when I got done preaching, and my husband came back into town, we talked about how people reacted to the sermon. Then we talked some more when I was asked to share again. And the question was, maybe I'm supposed to be open to talking more often.

To be honest, I haven't done a lot of talking in groups since I had a really bad experience a few years ago. I was always opinionated, in fact I still am. I have lots of opinions about most everything from how warm my house should be to which way the car should take me from point a to b. But I found myself in a group of …

The Minimalist Home by Joshua Becker

I've been following Joshua Becker's blog for a few years and have read all the things and even put them into action. I was excited to be able to read his room-by-room guide for minimizing your home.

The Minimalist Home systematically goes through every space in your home, including the garage and yard, and talks about how to minimize them. Becker has put thought into which spaces should happen first for the biggest impact and encouragement. Because even though it's wonderful to have a minimalist garage, it may not be the best place to start and get the whole house done.

Our home has been trending towards minimalist in nature for a while now. And I'm happy to share with you that this little book helped us take a few more steps in the minimal direction. I loved all the checklists for the different areas. As well as the facts about living space and stuff consumption sprinkled throughout.  The Notes section is full of great resources for further reading as well.

When Through Deep Waters by Rachelle Dekker

When Through Deep Waters is Rachelle Dekker's fourth book, the first three a dystopian trilogy. I was excited to see what other stories she had for us. Fortunately, this one does not disappoint.

Alicen has suffered a tragic loss and is trying to find her way through the grief. She lands in the family vacation home of her childhood friend. The idyllic location reminds her of all the hope she had for her life as a child and forces her to deal with many different disappointments in her life including the life and death of her beloved grandmother.

Here's what I love about the book, one, it's an old-school Frank Peretti style spiritual warfare book in that Alicen is an ordinary person that is struggling with spiritual forces. Two, it's a fiction book that made me want to get out my journal and explore some thoughts that bubbled up about myself! Third, God wins in the end and it doesn't look like the normal everyone desires. Fourth, straight up scripture usage that does…
