MY NEWBIE BLOGGER STINKIN' THINKIN'


Six weeks into blogging and I'm having a ball! I'm a little embarrassed by some of the thoughts I've found myself thinking...
  • "You know, if I'm going to spend this much time at the keyboard, I should start getting my nails professionally. Plus, what if I decide to take a picture of me holding something?"
  • "Uuugh. These pictures from my digital camera are just not cutting it! I need a bigger, faster, more professional one!"
  • "This computer is SOOO slow. I think it needs more RAM. No, we probably just need to replace it altogether!"

I have to combat this stinking thinking with THE TRUTH:

I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content. Philippians 4:11
Do everything without complaining or arguing. Philippians 2:14
Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks... 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

I really believe it was providence that led me to create my little blog, so that I could connect, encourage and learn from other women. I am determined to have an attitude of gratitude for all He's provided me to be able to do it!

So true! Plus just thinking in a negative way never gets you anywhere, unless you can twist it into something productive! Ha a lesson I am still learning :). Great blog, am a new follower :).

I am constantly at war with my stinking thinking! I love my tech gadgets, and I was thinking about getting an iPad2. But I really don't need it.

Thanks for putting up my blog hop bagde. I appreciate it!
