About 5 years ago, my world flipped upside down when our family of 3 went to a family of 2 almost overnight. Most of that story is contained here but this blog is now the picture of a new mommy-headed family—and of what God is teaching me in this role. This blog has been evolving and will continue to as our little family changes. There are many elements in our lives that are uncertain, but I know a few things that are unchangeable:
-God’s tremendous love for us -His word -My gratefulness for the price He paid to spend an eternity with us
In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus. Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its evil desires. Do not offer the parts of your body to sin, as instruments of wickedness, but rather offer yourselves to God, as those who have been brought from death to life; and offer the parts of your body to him as instruments of righteousness. For sin shall not be your master, because you are not under law, but under grace. Romans 6: 11-14.
Father, let my hands be instruments to hold the young, to embrace the elderly, to wash dishes, vacuum floors for your glory.
Keep my back strong so I can lift boxes for the poor and bend low before you in humility.
Strengthen my legs to go into places where other fear to go.
Give my mouth the ability to speak the word of truth to a crooked generation.
Keep my eyes from those things that act to distract me from the Beauty of your Face.
