We’re up and moving this morning. Paul and I sat up late last night sorting through paperwork and various notes for our upcoming websites. I also enjoyed watching my hubby and helping him make camera cables for a company downtown. You wouldn’t believe how many little wires are inside of a big camera cable. I was amazed to watch him take these things apart and attach new connectors to the end. It’s tedious work!
We’ve got big plans for the day. I know, I know I’ve been saying that I’m going to finish the bloomers that I’ve been working on. Maybe today will be the day! We’re also working hard to scrub down the kitchen. It’s amazing how much dirt can accumulate on walls when you have so many littles wandering about.
Today’s Prayer Request:
I found out this morning that the Miller family had a C-Section. Please pray for a quick recovery for Mom and new baby girl.
For my husband. He has a *VERY* important meeting tonight concerning our business, The Concierge Television Network. Please pray that this meeting goes well.
My friend, Sherri. She and I have so many of the same things going on. I’m only asking for prayer for her because I know how I’m feeling. She always seems to handle the stresses of life much better than I, but on my behalf, I just ask you to pray that God would give her peace and strength.
Today I’m Thankful For:
The butterfly that has been fluttering around my laundry on the line this morning. It is beautiful!
The opportunities that God continues to send to my husband.
I’m so thankful to be able to do things for my family. It brings me great joy to see them snuggled under a blanket that I have made or eating a dinner that I have just cooked.
My daughter, Courtney singing happily in the kitchen as she cleans. I love to hear her “happy” sounds.
The love of my Lord. He has been so good to provide for our family. We are so grateful for His love.
Today I’m Learning:
To be patient. It seems that I always want things “now” and I know that the Lord is working in me. Sometimes, that just takes time.
Not to compare myself to others. I have a very difficult time not comparing myself to what others are doing…I wish I wouldn’t. This is one of those areas where the instant that type of thought comes to mind I have to just push it back and pray.
That the movie “Star Wars” is a mom’s worst nightmare. I work and work to keep my little boys under some kind of control(ages 2 and 4). It only takes one evening in front of that movie to have them bouncing off the walls, running through the house with their little “foofies” (their quilts) draped over their heads pretending to fight the bad guys with their invisible light saber swords. Unbelievable. Where do they get all this energy?
Today’s Scripture Meditation:
2 Corinthians 4:16
“Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.”
