The 4 Ps

1.15.2013

Married...With a Pup


Today I'm linking up with Katie to share my 4 Ps. I've always wanted to do something similar in a prayer journal but unfortunately I haven't kept up with it. But I do blog pretty regularly so this seems like a perfect marriage of the two!

 Here's a breakdown of each P, in case you're wondering. :)

Peaks: highlights of the week; overall positives 
Pits: low point(s) of the week 
Praises: praising God for specific things that have happened throughout the week 
Prayers: prayer requests that arose during the week or have been lingering

And here are mine for the week:

Peaks:
-We sold our car! I can't even tell you what a huge deal this is. Look for a more in-depth post later this week. It's been quite the ordeal.

-I made two shirts for two precious sisters! I can't wait to see them wearing them. 

-Our plane tickets were purchased. We really, truly are coming home so soon!! 

-Emerson is like a little sponge and is just soaking up everything. It's amazing and I'm loving every second of it. Her newest thing is when I ask her who we're going to see in Texas she'll answer, "Family!" and then name off each person we're going to see. I die!


Pits:
-My sweet E woke up with a yucky cold this morning. By afternoon she seemed to be feeling a bit better but she was miserable again tonight. :(

-Now that we sold our car we will have to go without one until we leave. Jesse can take taxis to work but E and I will pretty much be homebound. Hopefully the time will go by quickly!

Praises:
-The stress of deciding where to live hasn't been fun but I feel like God gave me the answers I was looking for and a real sense of peace about all of it.

-Today is Day 2 of Beth Moore's Siesta Scripture Memory Team. My verse for the second half of January is James 1:19. I love being part of this and having a great accountability partner!

-Receiving encouraging messages from friends and family. Thanks for your sweet message, Granny! You're the best!

-I'm just so thankful for my health and my ability to work out. The last few days I have been in a bit of slump and I haven't felt like working out but then I'm quickly reminded how lucky I am to be able to workout. That usually motivates me to get going!


Prayers:
-Praying for a blog friend and her family who lost her brother and two nephews this weekend.

-For all of my pregnant friends to have uneventful pregnancies and healthy, full-term babies

-For patience and grace throughout the next few weeks and throughout our move 

-That God would help me to be the best mother and wife that I can be. I know that I have so many areas that I could improve upon and I just pray that He shows me what He would like me to do better


What are your 4 Ps this week? Link up with Katie to share.

Love this link up, I am going to have to try and do it. I also always think I am going to keep a prayer journal and have a hard time keeping up!!
