It is so easy to get busy and go here and there and suddenly you realize that the important things have been pushed aside. Oh no! What is more important-- sitting with your children and reading the Bible and explaining it to them and how it applies to their lives, or is more important to run here and there like crazy?!?!??! I look back at last week and counted up the days that the kids and I had that special time together in the morning...I was sad to see that we had missed about half.
What a precious time of life we are in right now. The kids want to sit and listen to the Bible stories, they want to pray, they want to sing songs and read books together. Those simple, important things of life need to be put first! I can usually tell the days when we have not given our day over to the Lord first. The kids are acting selfish- the mom is acting selfish- We have not been reminded to Live for the Lord! To put others first! To look for ways to serve! (and isn't it funny- when we live for God and others, that is when we are happiest)
I need to get my priorities straight. Especially when my decisions and my schedule effects 4 other people directly. We have so little time with our children before they will be gone....
Mondays always end good--my night to paint! Here is my idea for house numbers, Heather. What do you think? These tiny canvases are only about 3"x2". (Heather wants some funky curb appeal- it was her idea :)
Sadie is also at work in the art room tonight-- tasty paper towel?
