Forgive Me

Today's word for the scripture challenge is forgiveness. That is a huge topic. With all that has been going on in my work and family, lately, I didn't feel prepared to tackle the topic of forgiveness in a single post. 

But, since I have been putting a lot of pressure on myself lately, and feeling guilty about not giving 100 percent to every area of my life, I decided to link up with "It's Okay" Thursday, as a way offering myself a little forgiveness.


It's okay that...

...it has been well over a month since I have done exercise of any kind.
...we ate the same meal for dinner three nights in a row.
...my attempt at dinner last night was a semi-failure. While the meat was cooked the potatoes and carrots were still raw.
...I have not started working on O's selective eating, even though I wrote a post in September about how I was ready to get started.
...I am putting off asking for sponsors on my blog because I'm worried that no one will be interested.
...I have still not created a Twitter account.
...I am having a get-together at my house on Saturday and I have not thought about the menu or had time to clean my house.
...my favorite pair of black boots are falling apart.
...I am participating in a least five giveaways in the three weeks, four within this week alone. Two have posted so far, here and here. Two more coming soon.
...only 25 percent of my Facebook followers ever see my posts.
...I have two books waiting to be read, but I can't seem to find time to finish the one I am currently reading.

Give yourself a break today, too. Because...it's okay.


Though we are overwhelmed by our sins, you forgive them all. - Psalms 65:3 (NLT)

I feel like you wrote this post and stole some of my life! :P
I haven't worked out in weeks either.
I have a twitter, but NEVER use it. I just don't understand it and I really don't want to.
I'm actually contemplating removing my "sponsor" tab because it just seems like a lot of work and I also fear no one would be interested.
My favorite black boots are falling apart too. It's so sad.

I'm sorry your dinner didn't turn out! That's always frustrating.

This post was great! I totally feel the same about sponsors. I honestly think no one would care and honestly I'm such a new blogger it seems so big to small little me! My apartment is a mess too and I feel like that somehow reflects my life when it shouldn't but kind of does. I think I may need to participate in this link up too! Thanks for this post!

those are all okay! twitter overwhelms me - I don't use it often as I probably should! :) and you should find other blogs at a similar place to yours to swap buttons with before you do sponsors - great way to help each other out!

I feel the same way about sponsoring. If anything, you could offer to swap buttons to get your blog image out there and then do the same with blogs you love to read. I started offering ad space but I feel so guilty taking money from another. Girl, I cannot believe you took on FOUR giveaways in such a short amount of time! It's ok because tomorrow is the weekend :) Saying a prayer for you today!
