The Stuff That Matters

And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him. ~ Colossians 3:17

I needed to stop and focus on the stuff that matters

I am so blessed!

  • Four healthy, happy kids,
  • sunshine,
  • energy to do housework,
  • housework to do,
  • dirty laundry piled up from an active little boy and athletic husband,
  • a house with windows that open and a fan to enjoy this gorgeous day,
  • food to cook for supper,
  • a hard working husband who provides all we need and more,
  • technology to talk to my momma from far away,
  • and my God who loves me (ME??) enough to give grace for every single second of my life.

Yeah, it has been one of those “I-am-selfish-want-to-complain-about-every-little-thing-or-beat-myself-up-about-it” kind of days. So sorry for the brag list, but I needed to stop and focus on the stuff that matters … cuz I am just too blessed to waste time focusing on anything else!
