Welcome and Blessings!

Thank you so much for stopping by! I have named this blog "Running to the Cross" because that is what I often find myself doing...running to be with my Lord Jesus! I often cover many aspects of life on my blog, as it is my journal. I used to write things down in all sorts of notebooks, but my writings would soon be lost. So I decided that it was time to start a blog and share my thoughts and ideas with others. Many topics you will find here are prayers, homemaking and organization, children and pregnancy, funny stories, and the challenges of parenting and motherhood. If you enjoy my blog and leave me a comment, you are likely to have me visit! I love meeting others and gleaning from the lives of others. May you be blessed! Your friend in Christ, Heather

Making a Visible Difference, Day 2

Do you ever get the feeling that you have too many BIG plans? You have so much to get accomplished, but not near enough time to complete it.

Here is my list for MONDAY'S tasks:

  • Load and run dishwasher *DONE* (Monday)
  • Wash church clothes *DONE* (Monday)
  • Wash a load of my dresses *DONE* (Monday)
  • Wash a load of whites *washed but not folded or put away
  • Wash my hair *DONE* (Monday)
TUESDAY tasks:
  • Load and run dishwasher (Update) *DONE*
  • Cut my boys' hair *DONE*
  • Clean living room floor & vacuum *DONE*

I am making a short list for today, as I woke up very groggy and tired today. Maybe I planned too much for yesterday? I am still determined to make a difference in my home, but it will probably take more than a week.

However, we mustn't be discouraged by the obstacles and the interruptions that change our plans, God is in control and we must trust Him in whatever He sends our way.

Amy, thanks for the update. I have been lacking in motivation and energy today, but I will try to continue to pursue my mission.

"The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower."
" I will call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies." Psalm 18:2-3

Keep on, keeping on!

I got through Chapter 32 of Numbers! I will finish it in the morning and start Deuteronomy. I also loaded up my new shelf.

So for Wednesday, I will try to

start seeds
fold and put away all laundry
file papers
finish sewing projects in limbo
dust and vacuum in my room
start taxes

I have the hope of all the main areas of the house being cleaned by Saturday evening. If I keep going, it is possbile!
