Some how, some where, I lost a whole week here!
I think it must have been due to my writing assignment that I must complete, two photo shoots (one at the last minute), editing said photo shoots, gardening, outdoor work such a deck sealing, leading Bible studies, no internet for almost a week, homemaking and mothering.
Whew! This list wears me out
With every thing on my list I figured I needed to lay my blogging aside and focus on just being a mom and wife. Blogging is one thing that I can say no to if I need to.
And right now I think I need to at least for a little bit.
My family needs me.
I’ve been far too busy and I can get way to consumed with this virtual world.
I need to spend more time playing Polly Pockets, coloring, and snuggling.
I need to be intentional about talking and conversing with my boys. Really listening, instead of saying uh-huh, while my eyes are glued to the computer screen.
Honesty isn’t always pretty, it has a way of waking you up to what you really are all about.
I need to remember the important things. God first, then others and last myself. How does the order of that always end up flipped in my life.
I was just reminded of the importance of this. As I was typing this post up our 95 year old neighbor stopped with two quarts of strawberries for us. Strawberries that he picked himself….for us! All bent over in the strawberry field with a back and joints over double the age of mine. It blows my mind. Why didn’t I pick two quarts of strawberries for him?
God certainly has a unique way of getting my attention!
I am so convicted right now. What are my priorities? Getting readers and accolades for my writing and photography here in this vast internet world where everything is so virtual.
Serving those who are a walk across the field, or a drive away, or a continent away with a heart that is full of love for God and His people.
I will still be posting here as God moves me to do so, so don’t write me off yet Also, I will try to visit you as time permits, but for me I’m clinging to God first, then others and myself last and therefore that puts blogging on the bottom of the list for now.
