About a month ago I went to our mom2mom group at our church, and we had a great speaker, Scarlett, she talked about being a mom and the season we are in. She was telling all of us mommies to treasure moments with our little ones because time goes by fast! And that these times are precious, and this season will pass. We go through seasons in life and right now for me my season is raising my girls and raising them up for the Lord. There are times when I just imagine, and want, to travel the world with Ray and we both speaking to people and prophesies to people about our Lord Jesus Christ but, right now I am in the season to train my kids up for the Lord, and I have to remember to treasure these moments and cherish every minute of it! This can/is (be) the beginning of God teaching me something big (Patience maybe?) for when the next seasons come, I will be prepared.
God knows how I/you will be filling today in this season, I just have to remember and be strong to put Him first, pray, and be joyful. Scarlett gave us mommies these 4 key versus and today I am challenged to put them into practice.
1. Colossians 3:23
Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord
2. Proverbs 22:6
Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.
3. Nehemiah 8:10
For the joy of the Lord is my strength
4. Philippians 4:13
I can do everything through him who gives me strength
I will be patient with everyone in the name of Jesus... starting with those incredibly special little people who happen to call me mommy.
Here are a few pictures of our day today...
Oceana would not let go of my leg while I was vacuuming! She wanted me to pick her up and hold her, but being pregnant and holding a 21 month old and vacuuming at the same time.. ugh..no. I felt so bad =( but she needs to learn that she has to wait till mommy is done! and after, I picked her up and we had a great time playing...
I love this!! When I am playing my music Oceana will close her eyes so tight... I know its because she sees me/everyone at our church closing their eyes while singing praises to God.
Happy Wednesday everyone!! Tomorrow and every Thursday I am going to be doing Hubby Thursdays! Who ever wants to tag/link on up, link on up!!
