2011 has been marked with such beauty, I've been working hard in a few areas in my life - change is hard! I'm working on savoring the day, walking through the day with patience and without hurry. I feel I'm a more relaxed mother, the comparison game (you know the one where you compare your kids to others!) has been mostly eliminated because I now know what the Lord has called me to. There is peace when we're doing what the Lord has called me to - albeit hard a lot of the time, there is most certainly peace. I'm now able to line up my options in light of the vision God has given me as a wife and mother. It is producing a discerning spirit in my heart that is less swayed by the whims and impute of media and well meaning individuals.
Lord thank you for redeeming the years the locust stole, thank you for not giving up on me when I was disobedient, may your power and Word be lived out in my life this week as the daily challenges arise.
