stars and prayer

you
guys! check out this photo of our feet in the sand! 

i just noticed that there are stars in it. 🙂 my favorite little surprise. some people don’t like pictures that have any sun glare in them, but i love it. it’s like a little sun kiss that sneaks in and surprises you!  hee hee. 

ok, so the real purpose for this post is to share with you my idea for the 31 days in October blog series! Last year i took The Nester  (and a few other amazing bloggers)up on her dare to figure out something to blog about for 31 days. i blogged about “artfully letting go” about a year ago exactly, i wrote about what my purpose behind this blog series was, feel free to check it out.

this year, i’m feeling overwhelmed and so busy with everything on my plate. but i also feel far away… from friends, from family, and most importantly from God. So this year, it is my goal to take a small step every day to learn about… and practice… prayer.

Romans 12:12 says:

“Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.”

and 1Thessalonians  5:17 literally only has 3 words:

“pray without ceasing”

you guys, i’m seriously pathetic at praying. i really wish i was better at it. i wish i was more consistent, thoughtful, faithful… but the bible calls us to be consistent. to be constant. to pray without ceasing. what does that mean? how can i get better?

 this October, i’m hoping to look at different ways of praying {and i’m hoping that i can come up with enough ideas to fill 31 days… eek! ha} and i’m hoping to learn to be faithful in prayer.


i hope you’ll join me with learning how to get on our knees…
