Get Movin’

A few days ago, Beth Moore posed a question about motivations. 

I’m still chewing on the serious side of that issue, but, in the meantime, here are a few things that motivate me:

1. Motivation to teach my teens to cook:

chocolate snack cake, created on the spur of the moment by DD#1, and topped with PW’s maple icing. Yum.

2. Motivation to do 30 Day Shred:

see #1.

3. Motivation to be prepared for class:

my principal’s over-confidence in my classroom assignment next year

4. Motivation to clean house:

Hum….still working on that one.

5. Motivation for dreaming of summer vacation:

7th graders

6. Motivation to fix the basement:

spending the night with the spiders while tornado warnings blared on the radio

7. Motivation to encourage Big Red’s gardening obsession:

tender, fresh organic lettuce picked from our yard

8. Motivation to buy stock in Lowe’s:

Big Red’s gardening obsession

9. Motivation to not be motivated by perfectionism:

Galatians 5:1--It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.

10.  Motivation to pick the right motivation:

Ephesians 4:1--As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received.

Be blessed,
