Windows of Time

Oops. My last blog post was dated over a month ago. I had great plans to post weekly or bi-weekly post since starting the school year, but alas, no such luck.

In short, my life over the past month has been segmented into short windows of time. This isn't necessarily a bad thing, as this season of life for Ben and I is focused mainly on our adoption process. But it is a busy season of focused energies that does not allow time to be wasted.

The scripture I have been reading lately has truly emphasized this: "Turn my eyes from looking at worthless things, and give me life in your ways..." (Psalm 119:37). So no Facebook scrolling for this girl anymore!

Here's a quick recap of the windows of time I've been experiencing this past month, and tips on how I've taken advantage of some brief leisure time to make it useful and not worthless.

1. Adoption - we are well into the midst of our home study process. We are on our way to completing 10 hours of adoption training, with 20 more hours to go in the near future.

Last weekend, my mom and sister came down to help us with our adoption fundraising garage sale. We made such a great profit, that we're doing another garage sale this weekend. Our fundraising is moving along well, and we have a goal of raising $5,000 more in the next few weeks.
