Smart Habit Saturday

Each Saturday, I pick a habit to reinforce. Sometimes it works great, other times - yeah, um... I....

Well, at least there's this week.

This past week I wanted to focus on more meaningful prayers and some quiet time for listening to the Spirit. Let me just say this week I've had a constant prayer on my mind because everyone but Mr. Triumph and Ty went a few rounds with the stomach flu (or else we were the victims of some seriously bad Pizza, Pizza!)

I am going to add daily scripture time back in to my list of habits. We used to be so good at this and with all our trips to the hospital - and summer nights - we have gotten off track. Taking this week to focus on daily family scripture is just what we need to get us back in the *groove*.

If you have some habits you'd like to work on and want to play along, visit Lara's site and learn more.

So to sum up:
Meaningful prayer - work in progress
Going to bed early - Does it count if I say I went to bed *early* in the morning every single night, uh, I mean morning? Later, dudes.
No Soda - Had to tip back the flat Coke to settle the tummy and it was all downhill from there...
Drinking water - Very nearly a habit - (just couldn't do it when the flu bug came to visit)
Making dinner - Okay (although not many of us felt much like eating this week)
Medical papers - Tonight, tonight (I mean uh - morning)
Journal - HABIT

Oh, I hope you all getting to feeling better real soon! We do really well with scripture reading until the crazy farming days of summer. Then we usually have to do it at lunchtime when we know DH will be in. Good luck this week. Hope all goes well for Ty.

Getting sick always gets everything out of whack. I hope you are able to get back on track this week. Good luck with your family scripture reading. We need to rededicate ourselves to this one, too.

Now I'm feeling guilty for staying up so late. I really should be in bed earlier too.

Hope you all get to feeling better! When we get our Bible reading in, the day just seems so much better. It's encouraging to hear that other moms out there feel the same! Good luck!

We've been better with our scripture study these past couple weeks thanks to SHS. I feel like a much better Mother when we take the time to read!

I wish I had your jounaling habit. I'm counting my blogging as journaling but I don't think it really counts because a lot of it is just silly stuff, but then my life is pretty silly, so maybe it does count. I hope you feel "normal" real soon so you can get back on track with your wonderful goals.
