CRAVE – ABC Blogging

c-crave

I know it is basically February and I hadn’t shared this yet. Somehow, it slipped off of my radar for the blog, though it has remained fairly well in the forefront of my mind. Crave is the word that seems appropriate to focus on this year. Crave implies a deep longing. Crave makes you think of something that is needed, necessary.

First and foremost, I crave the word of God. I have been working hard for the last six months or so to display truths from the Bible in our home. This is one way I am feeding my craving and hopefully creating a similar craving in the girls. If we surround ourselves with the word of God, we are more able to remember it in times of need and it will feed us continuously.

So, some ways that I am working with the word crave this year:

C – create – I have a craving to create, whether it be writing here, sewing, embroider, or cross-stitch. I crave that outlet, so I will be focusing weekly on trying to do something creative that brings a smile to my face or someone I love.

R – reading – I crave God’s word. In doing so, I crave reading His word. I will be working harder at reading in God’s word daily, not just in preparation for a Bible class or following up on a sermon (both of which I need to do better at), but to stretch and grow my understanding of God, who He is, and who He has called me to be. One way I am doing this is through the questions that I shared in the post for letter B.

A – activity – I crave time with my family. This year I want to spend more time doing things together that are not “required” and that are more relaxing. Less movie time and more game time. Less “school” and more learning. Less “have to” and more “get to.” One of the ways I hope we can do this is through field trips and quick trips to places that are within driving distance. I have started a list of places I would love for us to go so now we just need to start putting those on the calendar.

V – vision – One thing I haven’t done since we began our homeschool journey was to write down a vision for the journey. We have the one we started with but it is somewhat naΓ―ve in its writing and I would like to update it. I want to incorporate different things now than I did when we started. This includes that craving of God’s word and how to prepare the girls to go out into the world. So, vision is part of what I am craving, not just having it written down but having thought it out and asked for God’s wisdom in that process.

E – experience – This craving ties into the activity one. I crave experiences that are meaningful and interesting. I crave experiences with the girls that are not just more of the same. I crave experiences with At Home Dad that will bring us closer together. Experience doesn’t have to be expensive. It doesn’t even have to cost anything but time. But, again, planning is key for this so I need to get crackin’.

Rather a different post, perhaps, but one that I needed to write in order to process. So, here it is – my cravings for the year.

At Home.

    Good post, what do you do when you follow up with a sermon? That sentence intrigued me.

      By “following up on a sermon” I meant go back over the notes I took, read more fully the scriptures used and quoted (especially when it was just a short piece of a passage), look over the questions I might have jotted down, etc.

    I love this! It’s so easy to focus on a single “craving” – but using this acrostic really helps balance out my days. I’m making note of each letter CRAVE and taking time to consider how each fits in to my heart and mind.

    Clever acrostic. What a great way to wrap up several different aspects of your plan for the year.

      Thanks. Sometimes a little helper like that is very beneficial and I found it so in this case.

    I understand exactly how you feel! I crave it as well.

    I love how you took your word and used it as an acrostic to dig in deeper!
