I knew that I wanted to follow along with the blog craze for October, 31 Days.
What’s 31 Days? Basically anyone can join in, just pick a topic and write about it every day for the month of October–we all come here and link up on October 1st. Think short posts with one point made each day.
I just didn’t know what I would hone in on – my mind is going in a million directions. Sure, one would say that it’s probably due to the pregnancy hormones but the truth is, it’s my reality in or out of pregnancy.
My first desire was to use the 31 Days as a retreat and share my reflections. My next desire was to share my discernment journey. Another thought was to get my home in order and use the 31 Days as my accountability. There were many more desires that lingered. With all those thoughts, I had an overwhelming urge to do nothing. I resisted the urge and have moved forward – I fight my flesh to be all or nothing.
I will be participating in the 31 Days with my reflections, Reflections from a Pregnant Mom. In other words, I couldn’t narrow it down. I will most likely take inspiration from the other 31 Dayers that I’ll be following. Just to list a few:
- 31 Days to a Heart of Hospitality – Life in Grace
- 31 Days of the Saints – Joy Beyond the Cross
- 31 Days of Homeschooling Through A Crisis – Reality Homeschooling
- 31 Days to Crazy Joy – A Holy Experience
- 31 Days to Remind Myself of the Mission – In the Heart of My Home
My posts my get deep, personal, help me to prepare for the arrival of this new blessing, be random, or not be much of posts at all. Whatever the case may be, I pray that it all glorify God.
You are invited to follow along and leave comments if you so desire.
Ad Jesum per Mariam,
P.S. The pic of the pregnant mama was created at DesignHerGals.com, a place to create personalized stationary. The pregnant mama is my ideal version of me during pregnancy. I gave thanks that the site didn’t offer a preg option for their plus size gals. I’ve decided to enjoy this version of me – ALL FOR!
