Reminder to Me

Stop hurrying, slow down....
ENJOY SERVING THE LORD and my family today....
Do my work with a happy heart (like I tell the children...)...
Embrace motherhood with all my heart...
Realize that motherhood is a serving role...
Look for and breath in beauty today....

"Today I feel overwhelmed with the work and "what nots";
Thank you, LORD, for Your joy which fills my heart. Please fill our home today with Your joy and your peace.
Thank you, LORD, for Your patience, love and kindness...please fill me with these that I may give these gifts to those around me. Help me to mother these little hearts with wisdom. I can't do it with out You...but thank you that You will strengthen me for todays adventure!"

  3. Amen Shonni. I needed to read this as I feel overwhelmed with trying to keep up and as I struggle through a difficult situation with my son. We do need to be reminded that we shouldn't overlook all the blessings through all the trials.
