Motivate Me Monday ~ Getting Offline

It's time for Motivate Me Monday with Sarah Mae at Like a Warm Cup of Coffee. Stop over there for great motivation for your week!

I had planned to write something completely different today, but stopped and took some time to read a devotional, my Bible, and then the book Passionate Housewives Desperate for God (highly recommended by my friend Kim at Homesteaders Heart). Just from what I read in that book this morning, I am motivated to take my homemaking duties that the Lord has called me to do, a little more seriously. And what that means is that I need to get "offline" today and care for my neglected household.

I plan to stay off the computer until this evening. I encourage you to try it too, if you haven't already! Go and tackle some of those chores you've been neglecting. Be motivated and free to do so!

Have a blessed Monday and I will see you - later!


  1. Yeah my friend. I'm glad you are liking the book. I'm on my second time reading it!!
    Big Laundry Day size hugs to you my sweet friend.

  2. I hope you have a great day my friend! We'll be here when you get back ;)

  3. Oh my goodness, you motivated me. This is going to be hard, I am not going to read or click anything else, and go do that load of laundry and vacuum!

  4. I would love to read that book....I have felt the same way, and in the last couple weeks, I have really been trying to focus more on household/family chores, etc. that need done during the day, and it's working; I'm getting a lot done, and it feels great!

  5. Great idea! I know my computer takes up way too much of my valuable time! I'll have to get that book. I've seen it and was wondering if it was good! ~hugs, Rhonda :)

  6. I definitely agree with limiting computer time. I have made a real effort to do so in the past couple weeks and it has made such a difference. Having regular hours that I limit myself to really helps, and keep my computer off in between times helps me resist the temptation to jump on for a quick peek.

    It is encouraging to hear others finding the joy in getting away, too! Keeps me on the bandwagon.


  7. Good for you! I want to read that's on my list of the many I want to read! :)

  8. This (& t.v.) are two things I need to work on more in order to NOT neglect my "jobs" at home and work! Thank you for sharing!

  9. I hope you were able to tackle those neglected tasks...and maybe take a few quiet moments for your self.
    Stay Cozy, Carrie
