Normally, I'd say come on in because these are the things I WANT you to see.
This is the front door to our lives...
and all toys are put away!
But sometimes I know that that's not how life is going.
I just want to pout:
I KNOW I do not.
I've been struggling lately with the things on my mind v. the things I'll let you see.
I go through pictures of my children with a critical eye.
I give the kids a once-over before they get out of the car.
I sigh when a drink spills or little, greasy hands "clean" the windows.
I withdraw from friends and family when I'm stressed.
I look in the mirror and don't see what you see.
What I REALLY WANT you to see, is a family who lives differently. Who seeks and follows His will. Who gives thanks to Him. Who is joyful in the midst of the chaos of life. And I'm struggling with HOW to do that.
This may all sound just a little bit cryptic, but hopefully you'll understand soon.
As soon as I can get my act together. As soon as I relax and let life happen.
As soon as I let go. As soon as I give Him control.
