My Intentional Mondays

This weekend went by in a flash. From sewing to taking a ride through the country with hubby and kids, attending a funeral, church, a little time of play with dear daughter at the playground, and a baby shower... I don't feel like I have had much time to even stop and think! But counting those blessing of time with family, health, fall weather, enjoyment of Gods creation.

The WINNER of the Veggie Tales devotional giveaway is Becky (entry #2 chosen by I actually deleted her entry by accident but put a comment in for her. (Sorry Becky, sometime my devices have a mind of their own).

A big thank you to all those who took time to enter. A new giveaway will be coming soon, so stay tuned.

This week I am reading A Lady Unrivaled by Roseanne White. I am on the last few chapters and have enjoyed it immensely. Every book in this series has been a thrilling, exciting read!

I am also reading The Raven by Mike Nappa. This is a first for me by this author. So far, I don't really have much of an opinion. It has been interesting enough, but I am only on chapter three, and not really into it enough to decide whether I like it or not.

I am still working through my devotional by Linda Dillow. Every week she brings to light a new area I need to work on in my life. This week (week 7) is about Focus. I only read two pages, and I can already tell, it is going to be a really motivational week. What is my purpose? What am I living for? She includes some really incredible quotes too! Here's a poem written by a 14 year old boy. She doesn't mention his name but it has a powerful message on contentment and focus.

It was spring but I was summer it wanted;
the warm days and the great outdoors.
It was summer but it was fall I wanted;
the colorful leaves and the cool dry air.
It was fall but it was winter I wanted;
the beautiful snow and the joy of the holiday season.
It was now winter but it was spring I wanted;
the warmth and the blossoming of nature.
I was a child but it was adulthood I wanted;
The freedom and the respect.
I was twenty but it was thirty I wanted;
to be mature and sophisticated.
I was middle aged but it was twenty I wanted;
the youth and the free spirit.
I was retired but it was middle age that I wanted;
the presence of mind without the limitations.
My life was over but I never got what I wanted.

WOW! If this is not convicting....
Friends, let's live each day in the moment, to its fullest, fulfilling our God given purposes. 
Hope you have an amazing week!!
