We found this cute old spot in…

The Will of God Poem

The will of God will never take you, Where the grace of God cannot keep you. Where the arms of God cannot support you, Where the riches of God cannot supply your needs, Where the power of God cannot endow you. The will of God will never take you, Where the spirit of God cannot…

The Best Mother’s Day Gift

We may not think gifts are necessary, but don’t our kiddos want to give us the best mother’s day gift?!  Mother’s Day is my favorite day of the entire year. Maybe it’s because of the gifts, or the fresh spring weather, but more likely, it’s the title. It’s one day I feel extra special because…

FOLLOW ME

  I want to be a home-maker.  But honestly, I have too many interests, and way too little time.  My mental to-list is always full.  I have projects lined up from before my oldest son was born... He's 11!  I often feel disappointed in myself for not "getting anything done," and then God taps me on the shoulder and shows me that my perspective is so small.  What is my priority?  By His grace, I am reminded of the big picture, my home, my children, and that I am to, "teach them diligently when we sit in our house, when we walk by the way, when we lie down, and when we rise up."  Deuteronomy 6:4-9  Regardless of what's on my to-do list, I am choosing to place my little ones near the top.  I believe, "I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth." 3 John 1:4  So here I share with you what I'm learning about keeping the home, hoping together we can be accountable, day by day, choosing joy, with the focus that, "Whatever ye do in word or in deed, do all in the name of the Lord." Colossians 3:17

Here we go!  One day at a time. 

Focus. 

It's all about perspective.
