One area of our homeschool that I am focusing on this year is teaching the blessings to cook. When I moved out of my parent’s house I had no idea how to cook. I was never taught except when I was in home ec in high school. Even then I had no idea what I was doing. If it did not come in a box with directions then we were not eating. I did not truly learn how to cook and I mean learn to cook from scratch until my mid-20’s.

That is my main addiction.
I am addicted to food.
I love all things food especially the food that is not so good for me. Then there are some foods that I cannot stand like vegetables. I cannot stand vegetables. BLAH! I would rather eat brownies, fettuccine alfredo, pizza, or drink tons of sweet tea from Chick-fil-a. I have no self-control when it comes to these particular items. I feel I have to eat every last bite or drink the entire gallon of tea.

Just recently I decided to step away from my “everyday” life and focus on Him. I found myself getting caught up in sin that I was slowly fading away from Him. I did not like who I was. I was saying things and doing things that I knew was wrong. I would feel His conviction but disregarded it without really knowing that I was disregarding Him. I would justify my behavior. I was so caught up in the flesh that I lost sight of who Christ wanted me to be.

A couple weeks ago we had to travel a little over two hours for hubby’s surgery. We decided to travel down the night prior to his surgery so hubby could get a goodnight’s rest and we did not have to wake at 2:30am the day of surgery. It was a win/win for all of us. We found a hotel with a pool and only a couple miles from the hospital. Our plan for the evening was to eat dinner, allow the blessings to swim in the pool, and then prepare for the next day. We were all excited for this little overnight vacation.

With technology today, we have the ability to have the Bible at our fingertips. We have apps available to us that give us His Word. Most Bible apps allow us to highlight scriptures that speak to us or provide reading plans or even devotionals. Nowadays we should not have an excuse as to why we cannot read His Word. I have an app on my phone and it is very convenient. I can access the Bible no matter where I am and also search for certain scriptures. However, I do not use it to read anymore.
