Not a Proverbs 31 Woman … Not Me! (seriously)

I thought this would be a fun new meme to join in on today. (well, new to me anyway – not so new to the blogging world). I thought it would be especially funny because you all voted my blog in the top ten Proverbs 31 category … I will effectively blow that thought right out of the water today!

So… I would never ever let about a month’s worth of clean laundry pile up in the “guest room” to the size of Mount Everest … to the point where I had to put on a movie and bring out batches in phases and it took me about 3 hours to get it all folded … nope I would never do that – not me!

I would never take down my Christmas decorations in the appropriately allotted time (early January), but stash them all in the corner of the same guestroom with the laundry and realize it’s mid-March and the decorations still haven’t made their way to their designated boxes in the attic… not me!!

I would never sit in church feeling cranky about something – then hear a sermon convicting me of that very thing – and still feel cranky about it after the service ended. I would never let the enemy win by falling victim to his all-too-routine attacks that frequent my heart on Sundays. I would never fail to recognize my vulnerability in this area and find the same thing happening time and again … not me. No I would never forget to put on the full armor of God each morning… not me. I would never let my life become so crazy and hectic and just plain overwhelming that I can’t remember the last time I spent quality time alone with the Lord. I would never fail so completely at juggling a full time job, keeping a home, being a pastor’s wife, keeping up with family, and investing my all into my marriage. Not me. Not me. Not me.

Don’t believe me? Yea, me either. Please pray – Ephesians 6 would be a good passage to pray over me today … really everyday!

Oh – and please head on over to Exemplify to read an amazing post by my friend Amy about adoption and the need of orphans around the world… you won’t regret it!
