One Simple??? Word

It amazes me that as children one of the first words we learn to say is "no",
As adults one of the hardest words to say is "no".
I'm searching for a life of peace and less commitments which sometimes is going to require me to say "no".
It's a lesson I'm in the beginning stages of learning.
My first steps on this journey were to delete my myspace and facebook.
I'm on a mission to cut out any unnecessary commitments.
Blogging is necessary.
You women encourage me beyond belief.
Your friendship inspires.
Thank you!


  1. That is so true! If I can say it so easily to my kids, how come it's so hard for me to say to myself! I've gotten better saying it to others. :)

  2. whoa. THAT is commitment! I so know what you mean, about learning to say no. I've only just learned that - and learned to not have guilt when I do say no! Good for you, Nora - learn it now and stick to it!


  3. wow...really love this post!!
    all my kid says is no...all i can't say is no but I really am learning.
    i have felt convicted lately that i am not using the rare free time i have wisely. perhaps cutting the facebook lifeline is essential.
    how can i pray for you?! specifically :)

  4. So glad you didnt cut us out hehe... I need bloggin' too~

  5. Oh Nora, I am so there....so there! I was just thinking the other day I am tooo connected to my computer..I need to disconnect for a while and breath. I posted a re-post on my blog today just to remind me of some things and to take a break! Sometimes we just need some space to take in all the beauty...and to get things done! Good for you! and yes, blogging is a must!

  6. Just saw your comment on Humble Pie, Please know I'm thinking of you, praying for a little peace for you. I'm here if you need to talk. We are going to make it :)

  7. I think this post is so simple and boldly speaks to my heart. Needed this so thank you!
