It was in the last couple of days that I realized that I have been writing here for three years.  I'm not sure why it crossed my mind, but it did, and so I sat down and started going through some old posts that I never hit the publish button on.  I found this one, it was written in the first week or two...  ((My oldest has now just turned ten.  Yikes!! ))  I think there would be a lot that I would add to it if I was to write it now, but I found that it spoke to me today.  And so, three years later, I am now hitting "publish post".


To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven Ecclesiastes 3:1

There is so much that can pull at us on a daily basis. So many things that I want to do. Yet, I often have to ask myself, "What is the Lord calling me to do in this season? This month? This week or today?" I've already come to the realization that time passes quickly... My first baby just turned seven. I want to embrace today, squeeze all that I can out of it. I want to spend my time fully investing in all that the Lord has called me to do.

 What has He called me to invest in today?
  • My Walk with the Lord
  • My dear beloved husband
  • My precious children
  • My home
Those are my main priorities.   Yes, my friends are very important and so is everything going on at church, I have those projects I want to work on and those books that I want to read and...  and...  Those things that pull at me are all "good" things but is it God's best for me during this season?  Is it God's best today?  Am I staying focused on what I need to today?

Then I also have to remember that we are at a different place then some of those that are around us.

I want to daily be seeking Him for His best, I want to know His heart for my family.  Father, I pray that you would give me open eyes to see where we should be spending our time, what we should be investing in.  Fill us with wisdom Lord God so that You might be glorified in and through us.
