I hope this post finds everyone praising the Lord this first evening of August. I am just overcome with thankfulness and excitement to the Lord…I will share more soon, but I wanted to share a quick update on the ‘ole blog.
My original intentions were to blog three times a week and use my little blogging schedule to keep me on track. But obviously I am not a track runner.
True story: I tried to run track in the eighth grade because the coach was a teacher I wanted to like me. (I am still not sure if she ever liked anyone.) So I went to the first day of track practice and ran all the drills and then I walked home (we lived across the street from my middle school). When I got home, I laid down on the couch and I did not move until the next day – I couldn’t. I think I had to take some ibuprofen the next morning to be able to walk back to school.
Running Track=NOT MY THING.
All joking aside, you know what happened? LIFE. Life happened. I realized that I have three little ladies and my first priority (after loving God) is to love their daddy and them. My heart is so full serving in these roles and I don’t want to get sidetracked (is that a pun after the above story?) from these roles the Lord has blessed me with. I know that God also gave me Daniel the subsequent children’s book and desire to have a devotion book to accompany the book, but those are not my primary roles in life.
Child of God, Wife, Mother…primary roles. Author/blogger…secondary.
All of that to say, I am still going to blog about God’s goodness and share my devotions as I write them, but I am not sure how soon my devotion book will be complete. I have about twenty devotions drafted (some are closer to being finished than others), but I don’t have to have them done this week or next, but I do have to be the best wife and mother I can be and show my girls the love of God each and every moment of every day.
I am excited to see what God will do with this devotion book and I would appreciate your honest feedback as to whether or not the devotions seem applicable to a mother who has lost an infant or had a miscarriage. So thank you for reading and thank you even more for your honest feedback!
I pray that God will use my words for His glory!
