Motivate Me Monday - Carpe Diem

Fifth Street Palace

Tomorrow is my birthday. I will be 28. I have been thinking about my life.
What do I do every day?
How am I living?
What do I want to do?
How do I want to live?

There is a a vinyl decal on my kitchen wall that says:

Carpe Diem Seize the Day.
 That is what I want.  I want a life where the first think I think of when I wake up is praying, not checking my email.  I want to be excited about playing with my children, not blog comments.  I want to use my time to be with the ones I love and worshiping my Lord, I want to sew, I want a home that is tidy and organized.  I want life abundantly. 

Abundant life does not happen at a computer keyboard.  

So I am unplugging for the week.  I will still schedule some of my blog posts, but I will not be checking for comments.  I hope to spend at least one day of this week on a hiatus with God.  Just He and me.  I hope to spend time teaching and playing with my children and letting them know that they are so much more precious to me than internet land.  I plan to fall in love with my husband and serve him in our home.  I hope to actually use my new routine.

I plan to really LIVE!!!
