I don't talk about religion much here, but I have been thinking about it a lot more since giving birth to my son. I'm a Christian, admittedly, not the most devout. I kind of fell off the wagon...well not off the wagon...more like trailing behind the wagon on a hitched up donkey, when I went to college. I was raised a Christian and so was my husband. It's all we've both known, and we both appreciate what it's added to our lives and will raise our son (and whoever else I give birth to) the same way we were raised. For me, that means growing up a
little a lot as a Christian, which I haven't been very willing to do--still not really working on it, but know that I need to.
One Thoughtful Momma tagged me yesterday with a few toughies. Appropriate for a Sunday post. I've always been honest here, so that won't change with this post. Here goes...
1. What is one thing you could do this year to increase your enjoyment of God?
I'm not really sure what it means to enjoy God really. I enjoy my life--my son and my husband, my friends and family, my professional relationships. I feel blessed to have these people around me and so maybe by enjoying these relationships I'm actually enjoying God? I don't know.
2. What's the single most important thing you could do to improve the quality of your family life this year?
Done. When I had my son in February, I quit working to be a full time mom and our home is a much happier place. The dogs could use a little more attention, but the humans are pretty happy.
3. What one thing could you do to improve your prayer life this year?
I pray for myself more than I pray for other people. I should be less selfish when I pray. Also, I really don't' pray everyday...usually just when I need strength or am going through a hard time.
4. What one biblical doctrine do you most want to understand better this year, and what will you do about it?
I don't have any big questions about the Bible. Who really has The answers anyway?
5. What does your devotion time look like?
It's actually more my husband's devotion than mine, but right before we go to sleep every night he reads some verses from the Bible, sometimes accompanied by a devotional reading, then he prays and we both say amen.
I won't tag anybody to post this, but if you decide to, let me know.
