My purpose

Purpose....this word has taken on a whole new meaning as I am now a mother. I know that being a mother is WITHOUT A DOUBT the single most amazing gift I could have ever been given. At the same time, it is one of the most challenging jobs of my life. I recieved a pretty amazing email the other day about how incredible and detailed the great cathedrals are, and that the men who built them didn't even get to see the end result. Was their work in vain? Absolutly not. Just as they contributed to something amazing and great, I am also by sewing seeds and raising Godly children. I may not get a "way to go mom" for doing the laundry every day, or a "thanks mom" for fixing 3 square meals a day, but the rewards of my job leave me feeling at peace with the decision to be a stay at home mother. My hope is to raise my children to know God, to love God, and to obey God.

Now....if you are reading this, then I sincerely appreciate you taking time out to come visit my blog. I was truly convicted to be more purposeful and fruitful with my time, and I thought that this would be a good place to start. Some days may just be a funny little story about the girls, or a thought for the day. Other days I may get more deep and do a little "preachin." I don't promise to be an outstanding writer, but I do promise to write from the heart. My prayer is that God will use this outlet for me as a way of spiritual growth.

Till tomorrow....may you be blessed richly!
