All for Him...

"The Ambush of the Birdhouse"

My kids crack me up, I so love watching them play. Listening to their interaction with one another. Laughing with them.
I need to remind myself daily to stop. Enjoy. See. Take in.
Because soon. Too soon.
They will be gone.
I want to live with no regrets.........
Not to say I don't have any - but I'm working to change that.
First off, I used to be the most disrespectful, selfish wife you've ever met.
I bet you can never guess who showed me how rotten I was? Yup.
Second, during that disrespectful/selfish/wife time, I also was a totally 'intomyself' mama.
Always wanting 'me time', acting like I was such the overworked mother.......I would never even get down on the floor to play with them.
Again. God slapped me upside the head.
Have I "arrived?"
Do I get it right all the time.
But I have repented. With Jesus Christ's help I have become a different girl.
What a beautiful gift.
It's like I've been given a second chance!
To be the wife God has called me to be, to be the mama that God has called me to be -what Joy.
So those regrets? They don't weigh me down, I've asked for forgiveness in areas and with each affected person. I've moved on.
The enemy will not use them against me.
Thank you Jesus.

Playing with, and watching them play.
So endearing.

I love these guys so, so much.
(and if God wants to give us more - well, thats a big 'ol WOO HOO from me!) soul magnifies the Lord, and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior...
Luke 1:46-47
