than Jesus' blood & righteousness.
(we're embracing the camera here.)
how the Lord has blessed me.
*a loving husband
*2 sweet/funny little boys
*1 adorable little boy on the way from uganda
(Lord bring amos home soon!!!)
*a beautiful home
so many days i put my hope & happiness in these things.
for example... yesterday i had a VERY productive day.
*had my quiet time
*did circle time with the boys
*cleaned the house
*met for accountability with my dearest friends
*fed the boys lunch & put them down for naps
*ate lunch & worked out
*started a new book
*made granola bars, granola, bread, healthy donuts & a quiche for our small group
*did some laundry & cleaned up all the dishes in the midst of all this
(this is not a normal day, just to be clear.)
being the type A/list keeper that i am... THIS FEELS SOOO GOOD! even just writing it all out feels good. to see my accomplishments. :) (it definitely gives me life.)
& when i don't accomplish ANYTHING AT ALL it shouldn't mean that i've somehow wasted my day. the Lord is pleased in whatever i "get done", & i'm doing it for His glory anyway.
my joy should be unwavering, because He is unwavering & He is my joy.
Father, teach my heart to be satisfied in you always so when my
circumstances are less than satisfying i still rejoice & hope in You.
