Do all in the name of God

These pictures are us at Callaway Gardens last weekend.

 The other day I was at the bank and the teller asked me, "Hey, are you still working?".  I replied that I was no longer working, but came back home.  She looked at me with her eyebrows turned down and said, "Why, wasn't it a good job?".  I smiled at her and told her, "I loved my job, but I love my kids more.  They are only small once and will be grown before I know it, so I have the rest of my life to work."  I turned and went back to my children that were waiting in the car.  There is always arguing and chaos, but I don't think I would change that for the world.  Staying at home with my 3 children and going through our trials with them is priceless.  Learning to "deal" with their emotional changes are also a lesson for me to have experience with self-control, patience, compassion, and faithfulness.  I realized that moment that this was a commitment and with the Lord I am up for the challenge.  I can do all things through him who gives me strength Philippians 4:13.  I love being at home and serving my husband and children.  I ask the Lord to allow me to reach people where I am, so he does.  I serve at my church with community outreach, serve my children, husband, and neighbor.  He has allowed me to pray for strangers and grow friendships that might not otherwise grew.  I will continue to pray that I will do all to the Glory of God!
