Getting your day started right…Boot Camp day 1

Still having challenges knowing how to get your day started??   The one thing I also like to do in August is get back to the basics of FLYing.

It goes hand in hand with Boot Camp.  By the end of Boot Camp and getting back to the babysteps of Flying  a brand new person emerges ready to take on the challenges of Fall.

Check out flylady.net    I once prayed to God….   “God I need help!!!!  How in the world am I ever going to do anything for you? Help me take care of my home and take care of myself.”  Somebody posted on a yahoo group something about a Flylady the next day.

I googled it and have been a flybaby since 2006.   It works.  You will not believe how much time you will have to study the word and be available to minister to friends and family.

Oh one more thing…. You’ll get your weekends back.   All you need to do on Saturday and Sunday is spend time with your family having fun.   Sundays be prepared to minister or be a student of the Word and really enjoy time resting and renewing yourself.

No need to do any preparation. Click the Getting Started tab on the Flylady home page.

For the next 31 days  enjoy renewing your spirit, soul and body by getting back to the basics with Boot Camp, and  watch your home day by day practically clean itself taking one BabyStep at a time with Flylady.

31 days from now you are going to either be 31 days older stuck in the same old rut or a brand new you.  It’s up to you.  Choose Life!

Oh start day 1 whenever you find this.   Doesn’t have to be on a Monday or Sunday and then follow one Boot Camp Video and one BabyStep daily for 31 days.    Take it slow and just watch how taking one step at a time can make a lasting change.

Stand up! Stand up 4 Jesus!

During times of great tragedy we need to not act like those with no hope.  Some how somewhere over the years  Jesus and all he did was lost in the translation.

Jesus and God are not the ones that the Bible says are here to kill, steal, and destroy.  It’s someone else.  In fact it’s a defeated someone else.  As Christians we “need to use our heads for more than just hat rack.”   Let’s put on our thinking caps and set folks straight.

God does not roam around like a lion seeking whom he can destroy.   God is love.  And God LOVES us that he sent his son Jesus to die for our sins and so much more.  Let’s Stand up for Jesus and Stand up for God! Let’s get the record straight for the lost and babes in Christ.  The last thing a babe in Christ needs to hear is some ignorant but meaning well Christian to pull the “God took him to be with him” card or the “This happened so God would get glory out of it somehow in the long run but we really don’t know what or how because he works in mysterious ways.”

If you don’t know what to say then remain silent. But don’t take the one thing that a Babe needs during a time of tragedy away from them.  It’s so hard to trust in a God that people are telling you “took” your loved ones.

I Know I’m probably rubbing some of you the wrong way.  So I suggest you turn around…    We just don’t have the luxury of spreading ignorance anymore.  People are dying and suffering and they need the TRUTH!

By the way…big shout out to all you straight forward no nonsense ministers of the GOSPEL!  We need you!


Don’t have much 2 give?? I bet U Do

People r always thinking wrong when they think they don’t have much 2 give or they don’t have the skills 2 b helpful.  If u know someone n ministry that spends time helping others U might b surprised 2 know that if u can laugh, drink coffee or tea,  eat  out or cook toast u may b just what somebody needs.    Invite a ministry friend over or out 4 toast, coffee, & some laughs. U might just B surprised.

Is Sickness your Friend? Improving communication skills.

“You know I just don’t feel like it today.  Maybe some other time.”   How many times have we heard people say that?  Sometimes it may be true but how many of us have said that and were not thinking?   Few hours later hmmmm…I don’t feel very good.

How many times have you used sickness to bail you out of a situation?  In that instant. Sickness became your Best Friend.  I know it is a difficult thing to just be honest and say…”You know…I’m just not interested in going to that.  We can find something else to do later but I want you to go ahead and enjoy that activity with someone else who likes to go shopping at 4:00 am.   Have fun… let me know all about it.”

“You know I just bought a fresh steak and I just want to stay home cook a great meal and read a book tonight.”   Yes I have literally said that… and you know my friends survived a night without me.  They know I’m a great cook so they understood although they were disappointed.

Just being honest with people will set the stage for being a healthier person.  When we lie to people it has a tendency to cause stress in our own body.  The truth will set you free and in this case keep you free from making yourself sick.

Need to improve your communication skills.  Dr. Gary Chapman (Five Love Languages…etc) Website is a great place to start for learning the art of communication for any relationship.

Let’s keep ourselves healthy by NOT using sickness as an excuse when we would be better off communicating honestly with people.
