 “Perfectionism and procrastination have such a fine line. You say, “Well I want it to be good. I want to be perfect.” But what you’re really doing is not doing your work. You’re putting off showing up and being visible because then you’re going to be judged, and it might suck.” -Jen Sincero

After several months I finally finished my throw quilt with the help of some loving women. I like this quote above because it fits my life when I compare me to others. When I finished it, I then had to choose if I show it.? I decided to throw out fear of what other think and go for this showing of my first ragged quilt throw

One more quote I read this morning...No one is perfect, that's why pencils have erasers

Another Sunday Morning

 Another Sunday has come and in a few hours be gone. Heard a good message today that caused me to to think on the past week.  Lifted up my sins, prayed for forgiveness, gave Him my week coming up, ask for help from the one who knows me best, my heavenly Father.  Came home from church encouraged in the Lord, and started this post while thoughts were fresh in my heart. 

I so often want to lay in bed on Sunday morning instead of getting up, putting on a little makeup, and getting dressed for church.  For 46 years of Sunday mornings, I have fought this same battle, not every Sunday but more than I like to count.  

You would think the enemy of my soul would get tired of losing, you think?  Here is one reason He does not give up, he wins sometimes.  One thing he never wants me to do is go to church.  The farther away from a church is how he likes to keep me.  And he has plenty reason which are lies to give me. 

Which is why I am grateful for the Holy Spirit who loves to go to church.  He keeps gently pushing me to get up, get dressed, put on a slab of makeup and ready my soul for church.  I try to always ask the Lord to give me something good for my heart, either encouragement, or conviction.  

I read this today,  {Church is not a place we go. It is a way of life we live as being God’s people in the world participating in His Mission. }

I am never sorry when I obey the sweet voice of God who knows how weak I am and how easy my thoughts and then my way of life can take on the ways of the world. 

Today the message was about Deborah and how God used her when the men were not faithful to God.  Judges 4:1-16

What did you hear in church today, or, maybe you have to listen at home to a message, what did God speak to your heart?
