I have not blogged in forever....namely because I've had very little to say (If you believe that I've got some land I'll sale you real cheap in Alapaha, Georgia!) The truth is, I've had plenty to say, but God has allowed me to keep my big trap shut. Over the past several months, a word has echoed over and over in my mind....DISCIPLINE! What has echoed even more, is my lack of....DISCIPLINE! Over the past 6 months my life has been in complete chaos and I'm not even sure why. God has blessed me and my family with good health, jobs, needs met, a new son-in-law (and the most awesome family that he belongs to)...but yet,there has been chaos. The chaos has mostly been occurring IN me, not so much around me. Everything in my life has been undisciplined and it started with my lack of discipline in reading God's Word, talking to Him daily, and church attendance. I don't want to get legalistic here...but I know me...when I'm not completely sold out and plugged into the things of God first, everything else goes to putt...so following suit, the rest of my life has been undisciplined as well....health, eating habits, exercise, finances, care of my home...the list is endless. So, here I am...not boasting but with the intentions of putting God first, and everything else is extra!
