I was working with Anthony on school, and it suddenly struck me that I had not even thought about what to share today on Friday Adoption Adventures.
And then, another thought struck me, how typical is that of our daily lives as moms! There are so many things happening all around that it is so easy for something to fall through the cracks.
First and foremost to everyday should be my time spent with our Lord. If I can't make time for Him, how can I truly love and care for my children and husband. I want Christ's light to shine so brightly through me that it is the first thing my family, friends, co-workers, clients and the world around me see. When I neglect my Father, due to various lame excuses, it is always so very evident to me. All I need to do is stop and look back at the wreckage from my day to realize my focus was on me instead of God. So while all these extraneous things push and pull at my time and attention, if I keep my focus on Christ, all that stems from that will be all that needs to happen in a given day!
So does it really matter that some things seem to fall through the cracks? As long as the things that fall through cracks aren't things that involve fellowship with my Savior and the welfare and care of my family and friends, why not just let them fall.
Because, if I'm being honest with myself, how much of my day is wasted on Facebook or the latest fad game (right now, I'm obsessed with the Candy Crush Saga) or worrying about what someone thinks of me or if I have all the ingredients for dinner. Foolishness.
So where is our focus today?
"May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing to you,
O Lord, my rock and my redeemer."
(Psalm 19:14, NLT)
Have a blessed weekend and mother's day! I will post some thoughts about Mother's Day on Sunday.
