Failure!

Well, so much for my good intentions. My mama always says that the road to hell is paved with good intentions. I surely must have been slipping down quickly today.

Why is it that as soon as we make a bold declaration, failure is imminent? I did or didn't do all the things that I intended to do today. Like Paul says, the things that I WANT to do, I don't do and the things I don't want to do, I do! (is this where he says, "oh wretched man that I am"? that is how I feel... wretched woman!)

Just to name a few failures, I slept much later than normal, I did not have my personal devotion time, and I ATE EVERYTHING in sight.

I went to a pot luck supper tonight. It was lots of fun - but mainly desserts. At something like this, you HAVE to taste some of everything and then if it is a friend's you have to have seconds, and if it's someone you are just becoming friends with you have to have thirds and if you REALLY like, it you have fourths (like the overthetop german chocolate cookies - oh my goodness!!!)

So, I guess that tomorrow I will pick up my good intentions again and I intend to be intentional and do them. Sure hope you did better than me!

you are right on about picking up our good intentions tomorrow. Or the next moment. It important to just keep moving forward. I love that God says our mercies are new every morning. Sometimes I just have to shout Amen to that.
Blessings,

I laughed so hard at this blog. It is so true that you hate the most challenges and the most to overcome the day you become determined to overcome them. I totally felt the pain with you. I mean german chocolate cookies....sigh! i have never had one but oh my goodness if there were any in my sight right now i may do the same as you inspite of the whole friend thing...who needs friend when you've got cookies..unless she still has the recipe and then...go for it....! Just kidding! Love you and am proud that you my mama are a conquer.....you always have been ....so keep it up..your "failures can never out weigh you successes!
