okay...note to self: must get back into some regular posting here! don't want to lose my 2 readers!
and instead of having a bunch of cutesie pictures of my darlings or some funny story about the happenings of my day, i give you this. something that has been weighing heavy on my heart...a good kind of comfortable weight. you know, how you feel when you crawl into a warm bed on a chilly night and those two blankets apply that perfect amount of weight to surround you? yup, that kind of 'heavy.'
these thoughts have been helping me in my daily mission to savour life's moments, so i thought i'd share them with you...
"Today there are more pressures on the home than perhaps at any time in the history of the human race. By necessity or by desire, more women are working today than ever before...many women (and men, too) devote more time to their working life than they do to their family life.
To paraphrase the Bible, what shall it profit a man (or a woman) who gains the whole world but loses his or her own family? What achievement in life is equal to a happy home and rearing successful children who grow up in praise of their parents?
Every material goal even if it is met, will pass away. But the heritage of children is timeless. Someone has said that our children are our messages to the future.
More importantly, our children have been entrusted to us by God. Our primary responsibility is not to make sure they have the best clothes and live in the best house. It is to make sure they grow up in homes where God is present and the love of Christ reigns.
What could be more valuable than successful children and a happy home life?
