that they admonish the young women to love their husbands, to love their children, to be discreet, chaste, homemakers, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be blasphemed.

Titus 2:4-5

We think oftentimes of our children when we say learning. It is easy to forget that while we are adults that we are still learning. I have a LONG way to go, but I feel like I have learned a lot this year. I thought that I would share some things that I have been learning.
1)I have a hard time listening. I don't listen well, and I tend to cut people off and when they are talking I tend to think of other things. I have a hard time paying attention to others. I am learning to try to keep my mouth shut and listen.
2)I like things around the house to go my way. I want the kids to do things the way I want. I am learning that not EVERYTHING must go my way. I need to be quiet and let my husband take the lead more.
3)Life doesn't always turn out the way that we want it to...we won't always live where we want. Things aren't always going to be how we want them to be. I am learning to go with the flow more. I am learning that I can make our lives bad or good sometimes with my attitude.
Things I want to be better at:
1) I want to learn how to be a friend. I am NOT good at making friends...I tend to want to be someones friend, and then I pull back because I am afraid they will reject me or talk about me behind my back.
2) I want to have a more quiet spirit. 
3) I really want to learn to be more content...not always thinking about moving on to what is coming tomorrow, but what is today and enjoying it. 


  1. I can identify with so many of these. Thank goodness God is always teaching us, and he is always patient as we learn. ♥

  2. I really enjoy following your blog. You always have such insightful things to say and I learn from you. I love this post where you reflect on your attitude and how it shapes how you see your life. I too need to watch my mouth and let others speak before always having to talk.
    I printed out the post about honoring our husbands and I continue reading it. It is so good to keep in front of me. Thanks for sharing.
