I'm slacking on our new meme AGAIN. This week has been quite hectic and for the past few days I've just not been myself. With all of that said, I don't feel like thinking too much tonight. (LOL!! Sad, I KNOW!) I thought maybe this "SS" could just be light and fun??
SOOOOOO... My soapbox will be me, preaching to myself.
Our story begins with my Mom asking me if I had my hummingbird feeders out yet. She told me they were already swarming around hers. Well, I brought mine in, then cleaned and filled it. Our 7 year old (Gabe) was obviously drooling as I made the "juice."
Well, the boys had been working hard outside and I thought I'd bless them with some Kool-Aid. When Gabe first saw it, he exclaimed, "Look, Zach, Mom made us some hummingbird juice!"
The moral of the story is... I'm OBVIOUSLY failing my job as Mom if my children don't even know what that sweet, fruity drink is! HA!!
My point is this... I get so concerned with so many things that I sometimes forget GOD'S FIRST calling on my life is to be the keeper of my home. YES, I'm ABSOLUTELY to put HIM first in all I do... but the Bible CLEARLY tells me to be love my husband and children, to be busy at home, and to be subject to my hubby. (Among other things)
4Then they can train the younger women to love their husbands and children, 5to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God.
Okay, I'm not REALLY beating myself up over a drink for my kiddos, but there is a lesson to be learned. I do need to stop and make sure that EVERYTHING I'm doing HERE is what GOD wants and not necessarily what I want. (It's so easy to feel overwhelmed at times and neglect the people I love most)
I ESPECIALLY want our babes to have wonderful memories of their time as children at home. If I'm failing to do the job GOD has called me to do, then I'm failing two of the most important little people in my life. That's a lot from a glass of Kool-Aid, huh? Heehee... You should've heard the lesson I learned from our boys pet billy goat. HA!
