Dream On

I'm back! It's been about 2 months since I've blogged. Basically I've had all these thoughts in my head that I couldn't express into words. So, today I was inspired to blog again when I was helping Amos (my 5 yr old) write his letters. I enjoyed every line, circle, & hump that his little hands made :) Enjoy the post.

Desire: A sense of longing or hoping

What do you desire in life?

My biggest desire right now is to be a great wife & mom. I want to stay at home with my children - schooling them and having a beautifully kept home for my husband to rest in after a long day.
I want a happy, healthy (spiritually & physically) and secure family. I want our home to be a refuge for us & for others.

I know none of which I long for can be possible without Christ. I give all glory to Him for changing our lives so that even a hint of my desire could become our reality.

I am undoubtedly a work in progress and for me it takes a great amount of discipline to continue growing in God. It isn't a cake walk, but it's so worth it :)

I know it's hard to see past current circumstances especially when they're difficult, but don't give up, press on, because if you do, the reward is great.

Psalm 37: 3-6
Trust in the Lord and do good; dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.
Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.
Commit your way to the Lord; trust in Him and He will do this:
He will make your righteous reward shine like the dawn, 
your vindication like the noonday sun.
