doing the next thing that blesses the next person in front of me.
That's my heart right now. I get anxious. A LOT. I even feel it as I mention it. I want to "measure up" or "fit in" or even at times "stand out". Then I hear about a young father dying or a child being be-headed, and I sorta lose myself. Why? Then I think about here... in my house. What am I doing? I'm doing the same things I do every Wednesday. I get up and turn on the iron, then I start some laundry, then I get breakfast out and wake up the kiddos..... I get out uniforms, fill water bottles, make lunches.... the same things. Almost effortlessly I can do these things... I pray for these people- the mommas that have things they do every wednesday. Only today is different for them. I cannot fix what's happening around me, or over there. But I can do the next thing that blesses the next person in front of me. That's fixing a meal or braiding hair, or ironing a shirt today. It sounds small and meaningless to most, but it is something. It's a blessing. That's what we are here to do.. to bless!
I have been married to my dream guy for 15 yrs. We have 2 beautiful children: precious Josey is 13 & handsome Ashton is 9. I love the LORD Jesus- (from whom all good things are given), singing, sewing, fall foliage, wearing new socks, rain, church bells, cheese cake, musicals, organizing, decorating, thrifting, flowers, magazines, French music, planning parties for my kiddos, blogging, & ALL things PINK!!
