30 Days, Ugly Truths & Gratitude

. at . 3 comments

Let’s play 2 truths and a lie.

  1. I have fallen asleep while on the phone.
  2. I have fallen asleep in the theatre.
  3. I have fallen asleep during a 2 person prayer time.

One of the answers is #3. (Shhhh. I didn’t tell and hopefully it wasn’t noticed). This happened today. I knew I needed some kind of help to stay awake at my New Testament class tonight (6-10 pm) and most importantly for the drive home.

I didn’t have time to take a nap that would refresh. So, I did the next best thing, in my opinion. While shopping for my niece’s birthday pressie, I bought chocolate (lots) and a coke for me.

One of my goals for this 30 days of nothing is to buy consciously, thriftily and less. I very consciously bought these things. I had a huge conversation with myself about it. Waffling this way and that over what is the “best” thing to do. The selfish in me won.

Probably won’t be the first time that happens this month.

GRATITUDE CHECK: Religious Schooling for Females.

Last night was my first class of the semester at seminary. It was about 1/3rd female. I am grateful that my country and this seminary allows women to receive an equal education with the men. To receive an equal religious education as the men. I pray that I never take this “right” for granted and that I stay grateful for it.

BTW – the other answer is #1. I’ve fallen asleep on the phone. While not excusable to the hurting one on the other end, it was a little understandable.  🙂

How’s your 30 Days of Nothing adventure going? What truths or lies is it exposing?

    When Hubby and I were engaged and he was here and I was in WA, we would talk for hours whenever we could afford a new phone card for the long distance and I would be so content, many late nights I would fall asleep! LOL His Mom thought it was hilarious! What can I say? We were twitterpated and I worked long hours and we talked late at night!

    I’ve done #3 too. So embarrassing! Ugh! I felt awful.

    And as for chocolate and coke – there is grace for that too, yes? He knows that the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak.

    thanks for stopping by and commenting on my blog.

    this challenge stuff is hard! we caved and got ice cream the other night; it was the last night of the season and we didn’t want to miss out. and even though i could have been more modest and gotten a cone, i got a blizzard. self-denial is certainly not easy, huh?

    but God is so gracious!
