Toothless Grins…

I‘ve been still working away today.

Family businesses are a passion for my family and I. We hope to have enough profit generated from our businesses that it will eventually flow into income for our children should they decide that this is where the Lord would lead them.

We are working on a website for families wishing to begin this process…..amongst our many projects, it’s a little further down the list. I’ll post a link to this exciting new site when we have it up and available.

Today’s Prayer Requests:

Paul…that he would remain strong in his faith and focused on His vision for our lives.

Courtney….my oldest daughter. She had a rough day riding her bike over the weekend. She’s still pretty sore.

My family in general. We want to be a shining light in a dark world.

Timothy, my 4 year old son. He is broken out all over his face in a horrible rash!

Today I’m thankful for:

The beautiful weather. You couldn’t ask for a more beautiful day.

Our accomplishments today. We really have gotten a lot more done.

The direction that we are moving in getting our home really organized. Not just clean, but organized! Yippee!

Finding Carl (the puppet in the picture a couple of frames back). He went missing several weeks back…we’re so glad that we’ve tracked him down….he’s like a member of the family! : )

For sweet little toothless grins! ….as slobbery as they may be. There is really isn’t much any sweeter than that!

This week I’m learning:

To pace myself. Sometimes I have to make myself stop and take a deep breath to slow down. It seems that there is always so much going on that I tend to want it done now and I forget to enjoy the process.

How blessed I am to have my big family. I know that there are so many women who long to have children of their own. I can’t imagine how hard that must be. I don’t take mine for granted. I don’t forget to stop and realize how important and special they each are.

*A special note to my children, should you ever read this…
I love you so much more than I could have ever imagined that I could love anyone. You all make my life bright and wonderful. Through each of you, God has given me a purpose and a direction and has shown me immeasurable love. You are each so unique. I can’t imagine my life without you. I love you.

We’re still working on Titus 2. I promise, we won’t be here too much longer. I really didn’t want to get into the scripture teaching business anyway, but I did want to put down a foundation for this site.

Titus 2:4-5

“Then they can train the younger women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God. NIV

Yesterday, I didn’t say too much about the part of this verse that we are covering. Quite honestly, it’s still part of the scripture I’m still pondering myself. I’ve always felt like the true nature of this verse was along the line of “too many Indians, not enough chiefs”.

I’ll close with an additional verse:

Ephesians 5:22-24

Wives, submit to your husbands as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior. Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything.”
