Time....it gets by so quickly when you have a newborn (he's a month old already!)....and when the internet it out, it makes it easier to not think about blogging.
We're learning to be a family of five. It's a bit of an adjustment because I Have more children than hands.
I'm thankful for morning sun and cheery bird-song.
I'm thankful for the gift of children, and God's refining of me as a mothers.
I was reading yesterday about how the Apostle Paul was willing to spend and be spent for the sake of the gospel...and I feel like motherhood is that way: it's Hard and taxing, physically and emotionally, but it's such a worthy endeavor.
It's worth all the spit up on your shirt, and the noise and grime of childhood because God called us to this. Because we're leaving an imprint on generations to come. Because the very best thing we can do is to pour ourselves out for our families.
You all are probably much better at all this than I am, and I'm preaching to myself here Because I need it. Because i need to be reminded that this hard work is worth it.
