note to self...

i am an avid note taker. i love nothing more than to go somewhere (usually church) with my special pen and something to write on and jot down pearls of wisdom from others. i don't know if this is because i'm not very original myself or writing stuff down helps me to remember better. and i just got this great new note book just for taking notes at church. i managed to cover 2 pages today! now if i can just remember to go back and read it all!

pastor todd is teaching on jonah. most of you know the story, prophet not wanting to do God's work, runs away and ends up in being eaten by a big fish. great sunday school fodder. (no pun intended) but i never looked at jonah as someone like me. a prophet! well he must be a great guy who always does what he is told. i constantly hear God telling me to do stuff and i just don't want to do it so i run in the opposite direction. huh. just like jonah. todd asked us this week to give God 100%. not 92% (or in my case 75%). so my note to self is this. GIVE 100% TO GOD THIS WEEK.

It's my first time here and I thought I'd say hi. :)

I enjoyed your post because I think it's a great reminder that when we say to God "I surrender all", we need to mean "all" and not "most" or "some".

Many sweet blessings!

I think we all have a love/hate relationship with that Veggie Tale movie, if you know what I mean.

Loved your thoughts. You are an inspirational person.

I just noticed the book you are reading on your sidebar--still haven't read anything by her. I know! I need to get with it! Do you like her writing?
