Step up to the challenge!!

I came across this wonderful blog last night, as I was looking for some inspiration for my own blog and much to my surprise I was introduced to a challenge that I think we ALL can benefit from ;-) Now, I am not one to complain very much because I do take pride in finding the silver lining in every situation =0) However I do catch my self complaining from time to time over the pettiest things...UGH!

But, the question is; Are YOU up for the challenge? Can you go 10 days with out complaining? Yes I know I picked the most wonderful time of the year ;-) The hustle and bustle of the Holidays always brings the grump out of us all and those annoying family members with annoy us to the breach of screaming to the top of our lungs. Yet remember it is the season of Giving Thanks......and Gift Giving, so what better time to take this challenge as a reminder to be thankful for our blessing and what better gift to give that the gift of gratitude?!

So over look those annoying/fussy family members, even your hubs if you must ;-) make the whining of children music to your ears (one day you WILL miss it), use burnt supper as an excuse to splurge for take out at your favorite restaurant, and wave at the nosy neighbors with a smile or what ever else drives you crazy ;-)

For just 10 days, you CAN do it, I DARE YOU!!!

If nothing else, you (and I) will realize how easy it is to gripe, and how much of achoice it is to shut our mouths and smile instead. ~Kristy at the Little Natural Cottage

Leave a comment to let me know if you are up for the challenge, if you have a blog post the link, I would love to be apart of your journey as well.You can also use the has tag #10dyswocomplaining as you tweet about it ;-) I will journal daily for 10 days encouraging you to stay on track and letting you know how I am doing. I PROMISE to be honest!!

I Am Back!

Just when you thought it was over, you turn a corner and see me standing there. Yes I am back and blogging again.....

As I shared in my "final" post, I wasn't following the savings steps I was preaching therefore felt guilty and convicted of being someone I was not....the very thing I hated about blogging all together. However over the past few months I have come to realize, that Prudent Wisdom isn't about practicing what I preach.

Being Prudent is to be careful and practical, a way of practicing common sense....I was reaching too high.

And Wisdom is to utilize knowledge, experience and understanding.....I may not be the wisest of all fools but I do have the ability to think.

Together Prudent Wisdom is nothing more than one carefully traveling through the journeys of life and sharing each experience in the search of understanding. Whether it be through clipping coupons or pinching pennies being prudent is the way I survive.

So here I stand, well actually sit with a k…

I Tweeted in Church


No really it was the silent type so no reason form me to excuse myself or be embarrassed.

However I did blush a little when the quest pastor favorited my tweet.....

Yes you read that right "the quest pastor favorited my tweet"

But did he realize I tweeted while he was preaching?

I am not sure...

Maybe that's why he liked it??

Or maybe, it was his way of letting me know I was busted....

Which brings the question;

Is tweeting in Church considered rude?

What do you think?
