Sunday Thoughts

Peaceful Sunday. A day of rest - a day of focusing on the One who created you and me. I'm so thankful for Sunday's. They help me to slow down and focus on the Lord. I also have quiet time, time to think and contemplate about the past week and the up-coming week. How did I spend my time? I always feel as though I haven't spent enough time with the Lord and Sunday gives me time to do just that. I'm especially feeling that way right now because I haven't been able to attend church for a few weeks. My pain levels and my health issues have kept me from going and I miss it. I miss my church family and sitting with them in worship and learning. I'm looking forward to getting back, but until then, I want to make sure I'm focused on the Lord and not getting lazy about my time with Him! Not that I don't do that when I go to church, but there's something about going and being with other believers that keeps you more focused. That's how it is for me anyway, so I have to be intentional about it.

I am almost done with my family room and, dear friends, I'm so happy with it! It is coming together so beautifully and I'm just thrilled. I will have the big reveal next week so be watching! Next, my living room with get a make-over of sorts and I will share that with you, too. This has been a lot of work, but it's been worth it. I love that I have purged and organized and made my house more of a home! 

So many of you are hurting right now and I want you to know that I am praying for you! You all mean so much to me and I'm so thankful for each of my readers and friends that I've met through my blog. I'm so thankful for your prayers, as well. It has blessed me beyond measure to know that I am prayed for! 

Have a wonderful Sunday! Make it a day of rest, a day of focusing on the Lord and spending special time with your family.

God bless you - Julie


  1. Thank you for your prayers Julie. I am praying for you too. I too missed church this weekend because of the ulcers/gastritis. I go to the doctor today. Thank God.
    I do not have twitter, but I just read over here to the right, on your blog, about Lawrence Welk. My husband watches that at least once a week. =)
