Well, it seems like a terribly long summer...but at the same time I cannot believe that my kids are already back in school. I love love love my kids, but I am sure enjoying the wonderful peace of silence. Does that make me a bad mom? I don't think so....I think it makes me a REAL mom!
We did a study over the summer with our women's group called "Me, Myself, and Lies", by Jennifer Rothschild. I have to admit, I did not get all the homework done, but I intend to. I really loved this one though.. it's all about what we say to ourselves and how that effects us. It does bring to mind the scripture that says "take every thought captive to the obedience of Christ" and I have been working very hard to do that this summer. I am very very good at bad self/soul talk. You know....I am a terrible wife, mom, friend, christian....just an all in all failure....HOWEVER, I know that is NOT how God sees me, and if He knows me better than I know me, and I have made him ruler, king and controller of my life, then, why do I sometimes not believe what He believes about me? Why do I allow myself or the enemy to tell me lies about who I am, or what I have done? I think it's time to take back my life, take back my mind, away from me and the devil and give them back to God whole heartily, so my mind can be covered with HIS love, HIS word, HIS Son. I know that is where my peace, joy, and strength will come from.
Other than that...I am hoping to get back into the swing of things around here, get our routine in order...if we even have a routine. I DO get to watch my granddaughter, Lea, on Monday's so that is new for us. It will be such a joy watching her grow. Well, I hope everyone has a very very blessed day!
