Blogmas: Day 2

I am behind time writing this post. It is technically Day 3 of #blogmas, so I’ll be writing 2 posts today. I’ll get it together one day ya’ll.

Yesterday was pretty much the same as Monday, but of course there were a few differences. Kaleb slept in late again. I have no clue why he keeps sleeping in past 9:30, but I guess I shouldn’t complain. Kwasi and I had our weekly pre-martial counseling session with our Pastor. If you don’t already know, my Husband Kwasi and I got married eight months before our originally planned wedding date. I don’t want to go into to much detail here, so I’ll save the juicy details for another post. We do still plan on having our larger wedding in July so we will continue our pre-martial counseling up until that point. Even after our larger celebration we will still see our Pastor and our First Lady as a mentor couple. We believe that it is extremely important to cover and surround your marriage with other Christ-centered marriages. We know that the first year of marriage is crucial so we want to soak up all the support and knowledge that we can.

Kaleb only took one nap yesterday. I am trying to balance homeboy out. He sleeps in late and then stays up until 1am and I am just not having it anymore! He still stayed up last night even with only taking one nap. I ended up trying something different today (Wednesday) so I’ll go more into detail in the next post. If any of you mama’s have any tips, please let me know in the comments!  Kwasi got home from work around 9:30pm and we took a family trip to the grocery store. We picked up A LOT of food, but we needed it. I was able to get tons of fruit for my breakfast and my green smoothies. I’m trying to do a little better with my intake, but I have a serious sweet tooth. I picked up some “Boom Chicka Pop” popcorn for a snacking alternative, but I guess we’ll have to see. I honestly only got it because the bags were too cute, so the verdict is still out on the actual taste.

Yesterday, God started to reveal some things to me in our quiet time. Right now I am trying to read those ten small chapters between Daniel and Zechariah. I just felt like I kind of skip over these chapters a lot and wanted to actually read them. Right now I am in Hosea and I started in Chapter 1. Basically after reading, I asked God the question “Am I cheating on you Lord?” The chapter of Hosea is all about spiritual adultery and unfaithfulness. The chapter starts with God asking Hosea to marry a prostitute or promiscuous woman. This was to be a physical illustration of how God continued to show unwavering love to the Israelites even though their hearts were far from Him.

I really started to think about myself and my life. I wanted to know if there were any areas of my life that I was being unfaithful to God? I left that quiet time quite confused, but I will go more into detail in the next post. Do you feel like there are any areas of your life that you may be cheating on God with? Are you dedicating more of yourself to that “thing” or person or whatever more than you are God? Let me know in the comments! Make sure to stay tuned for Blogmas: Day 3! These are actually getting fun 🙂 As always, remember to flourish!

  1. I understand where you are coming from. I can’t say, I felt like I was being unfaithful to God but I did realize that I was opened, ready and waiting to put more into a physical human to human relationship then I currently was with God….. Realizing this, I deleted my FB (spent too much time on it) and started dedicating more time to His and I relationship. This entire month, I am ending with Him. No distractions, seeking His face and presence daily.

    • I was talking to my Husband about this today. The same amount of time, energy, and sacrifice that I put into my human relationships, I want to put even more into my relationship with God. I don’t want to be stagnant in my relationship with Him.
