World Wildlife Zoo (Part 4)

The Wildlife World Zoo & Aquarium, in Litchfield Park, Arizona has to be my favorite zoo of all time.  It is wonderful!  Now, I live in the Twin Cities of Minnesota, so that means, we traveled a looooong way to get here. ;)  Well, honestly, we were making AZ one of our stops along the…

Best Road Trip Ever! An Intro to National Parks (Part 1)

In my last post, I wrote about changing perspective, and how looking at your life differently, or using a different lens helps in seeing your circumstances in a whole new way. But I also suggested that a change of scenery might do the trick as well. [wink, wink]  Yup, after two years of ‘strongly suggesting’…

  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.
