About Me

My photo

Life is beautiful whether you're soaking in sunshine or caught in a thunderstorm. I take the beauty of life for granted too often. I have a supportive husband who I don't want to live life without, a beautiful son who is always reminding me of the simple things that really matter, and an independent daughter who is teaching me to throw schedules out the window and live in the moment. My day is made when free samples fill my mailbox. I love discovering a new product and sharing it with others. I hope you will enjoy reading my posts and will share your stories with me as well.

Candy Crush vs Alone Time with God

I'm a Candy Crush Fan.  I'm not an addict but I do play a lot of Candy Crush in a day.  When I wake up early in the morning and I'm not ready to get out of bed, Candy Crush is saying Good Morning to me.  A mid-morning break of coffee and Candy Crush can be just what I need on some stressful mornings. When the boys lay down for a nap and I need to put my feet up, Candy Crush is waiting for me.  And I definitely have to play all five of my Candy Crush lives before going to bed.  Ok, so maybe I am a Candy Crush addict.  I have made this silly game a priority in my life. 
And yet I find excuses on why I don't have time to have alone time with God.  Why is it easier for me to waste time on Candy Crush, Facebook, Mommy Blogs, or Recipe and Coupon Saving websites? Is it because I don't find the Bible entertaining enough?  Is it because I don't want to be convicted of my sins?  Is it because I don't want read about why I must forgive?  Is it just because I've let my relationship with Jesus Christ slip away and I don't want to "take time" to get it back? 
Have you ever had a friendship that slowly drifted in two different directions?  Throughout the drifting you realized that you really didn't need that relationship so you just let it go.  I'm learning that my relationship with Jesus Christ is the most important thing in my life and I don't want to just let it go.  I'm craving alone time with my Jesus and I want to read more of Him, learn more about His unfailing grace, and talk my heart out to Him.  There is a friend that sticks closer than a brother...Proverbs 18:24.  And that friend is Jesus.  I need Him in my life.  Goodbye Candy Crush and all my other time wasters.  I've finally realized what needs to be the priority in my life.
