classes and new car

Gosh it has been crazy around here! We have started back to school, gotten a new car, started Zumba and tap! I am taking Zumba (aerobic dance) and Zachy and Erin are taking tap. We are all having fun, so far, its only been a week!
So the new car, I LOVE IT! It is a Ford Flex. Lots of room and better gas mileage than the Durango. Now just keeping it clean.

Back in the swing of things

WOW, school is in full swing and Paul and I are back at work. Back to the hectic lives of the Wright family. Zachary and Erin are due to start tap next week, and it will be Zumba for me. I'm pretty excited, just hope I can keep up with the group! Paul is trying to get in some overtime so I can cut back on house cleaning. I can't wait, so tired of cleaning bathrooms!

Just Motions

Did actual manual labor today. I worked in the yard, pulling weeds from the flower beds, and it was HOT. Worked for pretty much the whole morning quiting around 2 because it started to look like rain. My dad took the boys for their haircuts (that their thing). Paul started to mow the yard, but did something to the mower blade when he was trying to sharpen it and now has to fix that before he can mow, he did get a little weed eating done. So now I sit here writing my blog and smeeling a country supper on the stove. (Fried chicken, green beans, corn on cob, mac n cheese and sweet tea!) I am so ready to go sit in a tub and relax, then climb in bed.
I have been doing listening to the local Contemporary Christian radio station alot lately, and some of the words are sticking with me. A song that my brother quoted not too long ago has been weighing heavy on my heart. The song is called The Motions. It basically says that the singer doesn't want to spend anymore time just going through the motions of being a Christian. He wants to feel the spirit of Christ inside of him. I wonder how many "Christians" out there actually are just going through the motions. I know that I often find myself caught up in daily stresses and errands and such that I feel as if i am just going through the motions. Challenge yourself to begin living your Christian life more fully today.
