being faithful means being the girl who follows through. shows up. remains stable. keeps her commitments. keeps her word. gets it done. (and votes.)
i'm reading a book on this subject right now and liked how the author pinpoints the attitudes that keeps us from being faithful..
1. tiredness "i can't do it"
2. laziness "i don't want to do it"
3. hopelessness "it doesn't matter if i do it"
4. procrastination "i'll do it later"
5. rationalization "someone else will do it"
6. apathy "i don't care if i do it"
7. rebellion "i won't do it"
don't give in to these mindsets. whatever responsibilities you have today, just DO IT. no matter how trivial the task may seem. try it for an hour, a day, a week. do it. be faithful.
and in your haste to fulfill your every duty today, don't forget to vote.

Thanks so much for this food for thought. Proud to say I voted bright and early! We are so blessed to be able to participate in our country's political process.

about this blog

Hello, I'm Summer. A people-loving introvert whose hope and life is in Jesus. His promises are my passion and my ministry is homelife. This blog is a place for me to write about everyday things. Especially food. My favorite thing to do is sit around a table, lingering over a long meal with good conversation. I live with my husband and our 2 littles. We like blizzards, thrifting, grammar, guacamole, cheerful hearts, nice manners, good movies, and making simple, real, nutrient-dense food.
