Today was one of those days.  The kind of day where I had a huge to-do list, and maybe 3 things were crossed off. Not sure ‘cuz I lost the list.

My second son was whiny…so much so that I am hoping that he comes down with a fever so that I can excuse the crazy behavior.  Actually I think all 4 of ’em must have caught something. That’s it…that’s why no one could do what they were suppose to do – when they were suppose to do it…Right?


Maybe I should have crossed off some of the things that I thought were so necessary.  In their place could have been things like:

     • Prayer

 “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6-7

     • Bible Study

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding;
In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall directyour paths.” Proverbs 3:5-6

     • Share joy with my family

But let all those rejoice who put their trust in You; Let them ever shout for joy, because You defend them; Let those also who love Your name be joyful in You.” Psalm 5:11

As a side note on the list I could have added the reminder to “SLOW DOWN!”.  Ya know, so I don’t push a child aside who wants to help, and actually include them.  Oh, and to help not get so frazzled that I drop dinner on the floor. (yep)

How can I expect to get done what’s really important if I am not going to Him who is most important?

Lord willing, I’ll change that list tomorrow…and although it may be another one of those days…I won’t be defeated. I won’t pick up the pity shovel.

How we start our days, and how we align our priorities has a rippling effect doesn’t it?  How will your daily to-do list change? Share a comment below.



What better day than today 5/11/14 Mother’s Day – to add my very first post!

Why another Christian-wife-mother-homeschooling-life blog? Well, I have contemplated this idea for a couple of years.  The idea of starting my own blog where I would share my thoughts and opinions on the things I learn about, or come across in life.

You are probably still asking yourself, “Why another one of those blogs?”.

Well, to put it simply, ALL the other moms seem to have it ALL together AND have a free printable, that they made themselves after cooking an organic paleo breakfast, to boot.

Now there certainly is nothing wrong with that! I love those moms! I need those moms! I just occasionally need to read about others moms who don’t have it all together and are trying…and sometimes fail. I’m not a complete mess…the Lord has shown me a lot…but He just really has a lot more work to do!

If you can relate, then please join me in this adventure!
