Let me see, how do I put this?
Life is hard.
Life is distracting.
It is so easy to get caught up in it all.
It makes me mad how easy Satan has a grasp on our lives.
He sneakily binds us with internet, TV...and dare I say, crafts?!
I get so caught up...
Even good things can turn bad when it takes over our lives and we let the most important things slip.
I know this in the back of my head.
But I become selfish. I want to do what I (natural man) wants to do.
And then I look at my girls...
And start to cry because it's not worth being selfish.
They are so innocent and happy...
and dependant on me and what I teach them.
As scary as that sounds, I signed up for that when I decided to have them.
So step it up, Lyssa!
My family is the most important thing to me.
Even more important than myself.
I can let go of menial things in this life to do what I need to do, to do what God intended me to do as His daughter.
We all have so much potential.
I don't know what came over me to write this...
Maybe because i'm pregnant.
Maybe because I am emotional.
Maybe because Emma is starting Pre-school on Tuesday...she's getting big...
Maybe because I read this.
Maybe because I know deep down that that is the purpose of this life: Love and Family.
When we see life in that perspective, it's beautiful and worth it.
