I have really let my blog go. I never thought Facebook would take the place of this blog. I don't post very much on Facebook but it is so easy to put a picture up there that I tend to forget about putting them here. One thing that I do really appreciate about the blog, different from Facebook, is that it's a quiet place to share what God is doing in our family. And He is doing. Sometimes I battle the lies from Satan that I need to have a big long list of important things I am doing each week. When I see friends on Sunday we are always asking each other how the week was or what we have been busy with lately. It feels as though my answer is usually the same! I don't go out a whole lot during the week (by choice :-) and yet I stay plenty busy! I am learning (and yes it is a day by day lesson) that the most important thing I can do with my life right now is to grow in my walk with my Savior and follow His priorities. Those priorities are my husband and children. That doesn't mean I can't be involved in anything else or have other friendships, it just means that my focus is different. This means that even if my day consists only of laundry, cooking, and training, if that is what HE has for me that is enough. I am so blessed to be a mommy and am continually reminded of how gracious, patient, and faithful our heavenly Father is!
