Myspace part 2

Did you miss Part 1? Read it here, so this post will make some sense to you!

"Am I now trying to win the approval of men, or of God? Or am I trying to please men? If I were still trying to please men, I would not be a servant of Christ."Galatians 1:10

This really isn't just a blog issue, it's a life issue for me. I all too often live my life to be seen in a favorable light by people. What I need to focus on in all of my life is doing what the Lord has called me too, living out my priorities of being a loving wife, creator of a peaceful home, investor in young women's spiritual lives, hardworking employee and loving friend.

How does my blog fit into this? Well it helps keep me focused and balanced. How? I typically write about things that fit into these priorities somehow and someway. Therefore, I am going to continue writing what I like and desire to write.

If you think a post is dumb then don't read it. You are not obligated. Every Monday I will post my menu plan. Why? Because it helps me to have my plan typed out and ready. Because I think it is fun. And because it may give some of you how don't have lots of recipes or are sick of what you normally cook some ideas. If this post annoys you or you think it's silly then just skip right over it. No biggie.

Along the same lines, if you really enjoy a certain post topic of mine then come back around the same time next week and you will probably get something similar. I tend to post in a pattern, it helps me stay in a routine and not get too focused on the blog instead of real life.

This is patelife: thoughts and plans that make up my everyday life as I strive to live out my God given priorities by the Lord's grace.

The end.


  1. Hmmm... good thoughts. I think that's one reason I appreciate your blog (and makes me want to get better at blogging). It's real life... not every post is world-changing or on the edge of your seat exciting, but hey, my life is not that way either. I really appreciate your wisdom in these posts and even the meal plan posts give me ideas for cooking.

    So keep it up Sabrina! I've missed your blogs this past week!
