I don't spend a lot of time on my blog. I write more in my head than I ever get down on the keyboard. But it is really a little gift from God, like manna from heaven, when someone says something nice about it. I had a friend of mine at MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) tell me I had inspired her to try not eating out for the month of February. It was wonderful to hear this from her. If someone inspires you, let them know! In fact, this may be one of the projects that we do as a family. I know she can do this! Her kids are much younger than mine so she will be establishing some good habits.

None of us start out to find bad habits though do we? We drift from good habits to bad ones. Hebrews 2:1 says "So we must listen very carefully to the truth we have heard, or we may drift away from it." (thank you Lisa Harper for writing Holding Out for a Hero: A New Spin on Hebrews).  Now, eating out is not a sin.  It's not bad.  But for my family, it had become a bad habit.  Many of the 'projects' we are doing this year are a result of drifting into bad habits.  And each of these projects is not about what we 'do' or what we 'don't do'.  It's about the intentionality of our lives.  It's about what I am letting God teach me and my family while we add or take away something from our lives.  

Be intentional.  Don't drift!
