Feeling Good.

I have been in a good mood today.  Maybe it's because I got my roots did, that always make me feel better.  There is nothing worse than walking around with a black hole on your head! 

I have cooked every night this week so far, and that is a huge accomplishment for me.  Normally I would be tired when I get off and just talk Gary in to going out to eat.  Not this week.  I made an effort to plan out the week's menu so I would have everything I need to cook dinner every night.  I hope this becomes a habit for us.

For the past 7 weeks I have been participating in our church's women's Bible study.  The study is by Beth Moore and it is on the book of Esther.  It has been one of the most insightful studies I have ever gone through.  God is showing me something new every day.  The book of Esther would make a great movie, if you have never read it you should.  Today's lesson talked about being a perfectionist.  This is something I definitely struggle with.  Something she said really clicked with me.  Maybe you will gain something from it too.

"To live for the greatness of God is to live the great life.  What if we awakened to what a dream-killer perfectionism is? To how pitifully small and unworthy a goal personal greatness is? We were meant for so much more.  In effect Christ says, 'I'm already great enough for both of us,' relieving the willing of their woeful burden. 'Just follow me.'" 

Amen.
