|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!
