Proverbs 24:3-4

By wisdom a house is built, and by understanding it is established; by knowledge the rooms are filled with all precious and pleasant riches.

I love my husband.

I love him for so many things, but mostly because he reminds me to be thankful.
I cannot see my husband without seeing my Lord.
I serve my Lord by serving my husband.
I was perfectly chosen, perfectly equipped and perfectly purposed.
What a blessing it is to have a husband.

Days gone by...

Our first family canoe trip...

It was a time of "firsts" and a "learning" experience, but nonetheless, a GREAT family day!

Happy Mother's Day!

There are many things that I am perceived to be good at....
Motherhood is not one of them.
I fail and on a daily basis.
I forget that they are not my children.
I forget that it is not my will that should rule over our children.
I forget so many things.
But this I remember... that I cannot do it alone.
I remember that I am a sinner and fall short of His glory daily.
I am reminded that I am not expected to be perfect, but much is expected of me.

I am corrected, brought to my knees and bent in submission to the will of my Heavenly Father.
Then, I am sent on my way to complete that purpose which He has graciously given to me:
to prepare their hearts for their Heavenly Father
to love them, cherish and treasure them
to show them His love through my love for them
and to be a beacon through which His light shines.

I am reminded that I have far to go in this journey of motherhood and praise the Lord for it!
