quote from HERE
A very good reminder for me. I love being blessed to stay home and preform this precious work that the LORD has given me to do. And children just naturally create, explore, cut up paper, build things, and eat.
And since I am really checking my thoughts, I saw I was looking at the messes with a critical, self-centered - “More to clean up” attitude. So, I want to replace that with positive and thankful thoughts. And I want to again see the “messes” for what they really represent...A home that is loved and lived in by many precious little children that are healthy, happy and living in peace. When I was in Uganda, one of the beautiful young men that we worked with said to me “Momma, you are blessed...you can raise your children in peace. Here in Uganda, we can not do that. But I pray that one day we can.”
I will always remember that and be thankful for those little messes.
