Happy Easter (and an Announcement!)

HAPPY EASTER!

I hope you had a blessed and wonderful Holy Week and Easter Sunday. Ours was hectic but it was really good at the same time.

ANNOUNCEMENT

So, this may seem a little random but I want to share what is happening and how it will affect the blog.

So, a few weeks ago, I started working with someone as an administrative specialist. Doing that work reawakened in me my love of administrative work. I love serving others and getting things do and I LOVE helping solo business owners gain freedom and focus so they can serve their clients.

Therefore, after a lot of prayer and discernment, I have decided to re-launch my administrative support business. I am very excited about this but in re-opening the business will require some changes. In particular, it will leave less time for this blog and my personal Facebook group.

To be clear, I am not abandoning this ministry, just scaling down. Instead of blogging weekly, I will be blogging at least once a month and hopefully twice a month. It just depends on my time availability. I also will not be doing any coaching – at least for a while. Only God knows what will happen but It will be good!

God bless!

(P.S. My Administrative website isn’t quite updated yet so please be patient. Products, offers, and info coming shortly.)

Easter Blogging Break

In order to enter into the solemnity of Holy week and celebration of Easter, I will be taking a small blogging break. I will be back into full swing on either Monday, March 28 or Wednesday, March 30.

God bless!

From this week’s liturgies:

1. Isaiah 42:1 “Here is my servant whom I uphold, my chosen one with whom I am pleased, upon whom I have put my spirit; he shall bring forth justice to the nations”

2. John 13:26-27 “Jesus answered, ‘it is the one to whom I hand the morsel after I have dipped it.’ So he dipped the morsel and handed it to Judas, son of Simon the Iscariot. After he took the morsel, Satan entered him.”

3. Psalm 69:14 “But I pray to you, Lord, for the time of your favor. God in your great kindness answer me with your constant help.”

From the Seven Last Words of Jesus:

4. Matthew 27:46 “And about three o’clock Jesus cried out in a loud voice, ‘Eli, eli, lema sabachthani?’ which means, ‘My God, my God, why have you abandoned me?'”

5. Luke 23:34 “Jesus said, ‘Father, forgive them, they know not what they do.'”

6. Luke 23:43 “Amen, I say to you, today you will be with me in Paradise.”

7. Luke 23:46 “Jesus cried out in a loud voice, ‘Father, into your hands I commend my spirit;’ and when he had said this he breathed his last.”

8. John 19: 26-27 “When Jesus saw his mother and the disciple there whom he loved, he said to his mother, ‘Woman, behold, your son.’ then he said to the disciple, ‘Behold, your mother.’ And from that hour the disciple took her into his home. ”

9. John 19:28 “After this, aware that everything was now finished, in order that the scripture might be fulfilled, Jesus said, ‘I thirst.'”

10. John 19:30 “When Jesus had taken the wine, he said, ‘It’s is finished,'”

I choose these verses because they are very meaningful to me; however, there are many other beautiful scriptures applicable for this sacred week to pray over. What are your favorites? Do let us know in the comments.
