Rosemary Reorganizes

Okay... So, I know I haven't blogged in a while.... I'm working on that. I'll for-real post soon.
It's been QUITE a semester (and I've loved every QUITE bit of it).

Until you hear from me again, you can rest assured that I'm reorganizing my life.
Proof? Well, okay!.........
Found this little "Daily Draft" on a Christian mom's blog.
I love it. Want one? Click here.

This one is both self-inspired and self-developed!
(Feel free to plagiarize my wonderful idea of treating myself like a 6th grader.)
It's my little week-by-week accountability/awareness chart to keep me
aware of whether-or-not/how-often-or-not-often I'm doing the
things I need to be doing either everyday or every week...
through checkmarks (or maybe even smiley faces?)

It's a grocery checklist (pen+paper... so last semester.)
This is also a Pinterest find.
Perfect. Excellent. Wonderful.
Print yours here.

Basically, this iCal on paper (minus a few hours).
I used iCal last semester and really liked it's hour-by-hour organization,
but I found that I my brain connects with my schedule through ink.

I plan on laminating all of the above and using them with Expo markers until I die.

I'll fill you in on the past several hundred years of my life that blogger doesn't know about sometime in the near (?) future.

Updates to hold you over? Okay. For now, you can know that I have:
-an inability to exercise for fear of rupturing my spleen
-a beau (who does not have mono)
-an iPhone
-a new cell phone number (to accompany the above)
-longer hair
-an attempted diet plan based on finding my worth and identity in Christ
-a slowly reorganizing life
-a 3.0 to label last semester (... hence the above)
-new year's resolutions in the making (future blogpost?)
-a stronger desire/passion to pursue my major
-a crush on these two songs:
  1. *I KNOW WHITNEY PRITCHETT!!!* (... and her voice is ALMOST as beautiful as her heart.)
  2. I don't know any of these people, but they make me feel like a college kid.

Tha-Tha-Thaa-Thaa--That's all for now, folks.

Oswald Wisdom

"If in preaching the gospel you substitute your knowledge of the way of salvation for confidence in the power of the gospel, you hinder people from getting to reality. Take care to see while you proclaim your knowledge of the way of salvation, that you yourself are rooted and grounded by faith in God. Never rely on the clearness of your presentation, but as you give your explanation make sure that you are relying on the Holy Spirit. Rely on the certainty of God’s redemptive power, and He will create His own life in people."
-Oswald Chambers, My Utmost for His Highest (December 3)

This hits home.
Why do I feel completely insufficient in myself? Because I AM

Am I godly enough,
wise enough,
good enough,
smart enough,
pure enough,
disciplined enough?

Am I enough?

I am so sinful, so insufficient.

... That's why I have a redeemer whose grace is enough,
whose grace is sufficient.
