Hello all and here I am once again apologizing for not keeping up with this as I know I should. School has started for Isaac at Hubbertville and William at UWA and mama and daddy are kept hopping trying to keep up with all the activities associated with active children in school functions. Some days there just aren't enough hours in a day to get it all done. I know there are many of you who can relate! I let way too many things fall through the cracks and this website is one of them. I need to update so much stuff and I just keep putting it off. One thing I never try to put off is my daily Bible reading time. I have a specific time I do that and I rarely fail to spend that time in my Bible. Extraordinary circumstances sometimes require I rearrange my time to accommodate it elsewhere, but I make the time somewhere. That's one of those things I just can't allow anything else to replace. I hate housecleaning so it's pretty easy for me to be persuaded that something else is more important! But I can never let anything else, not even my precious kids, take the place of spending time with the Lord and His Word. It's that important, and that necessary, to my spiritual life. When I am so frazzled from dashing here and there between work and school and home, my relationship with God keeps me grounded and headed in the right direction no matter which way I may be running at the moment. I hope that I am setting a good example for my kids to follow. If they follow me, will I lead them to Christ with my life and my actions? It's a question I ask myself all the time. And sometimes it keeps me from making a stupid mistake just knowing I don't want my kids to follow a bad example. So, even when I am running flat out to keep up with all the stuff my kids are in, I also try to do the right things so that one day they will be able to look back and say, " This is how I should do things for my family, because my mom did it for me." I am far from perfect I will be the first to admit, but I hope I am always found guilty of trying my best to be the best person the Lord would have me be. On that note, I will close with a request. Pray that I will try harder to make the time for the things that really matter the most, including this website. I fall so short, but please know-- I try! Have a wonderful week.
