August Joy Dare (week 4)

the real me...just Julie

So Monday was the first day of class for me... just one class this semester, three times a week times 16 weeks... I only have 47 more to go... minus a few breaks in there, so at least 40 more classes to attend... and lots of reading reports to write, and some essays.

I'm afraid that my blogging might just suffer, which is why this post is getting put out on Tuesday morning, but I will be post dating it for "Multitude Mondays"!!  Somewhere in there I have to keep my house clean, feed my kids, make sure that meals are on the table and keep my sanity... 

which is why I really appreciated the Allume blog post today... Just keeping it REAL! I don't have it all together, and sometimes it shows up on the blog, sometimes I hide it! But I'm so excited about meeting other women at Allume Social who don't have it all together and are full of grace for the rest of us!!

and Jessica's post on Finding what you are made for, because that's what this writing class is all about for me... to find out if this is what I'm made for.

But I also know that I am made for giving thanks, all glory to the One who made me (are you made for giving thanks? tweet this!) ..."to do everything I do to the glory of the One who made me..." If you don't have the song stuck in your head yet, take a minute to listen to it!! LOVE IT!!

So here is my thanks... my 1000gifts... my JoyDare
