Just One More Thing

I’ve never even heard this song before. I seem to be on a theme right now. I believe the Lord is trying to tell me something.

I don’t really have urgency in my life right now. My problem is – the computer and internet. There is so much to learn and discover! I sit in front of it way too much.

Okay, I’m convicted. I’m walking away from it – right now. After I look up one more thing. 🙂

Generations Will Reap What I Sow

Same song, different pictures:

The last two days I have been reminded of the preciousness of the time I spend with my children. Using it wisely means living in the moment with them. Which can sometimes mean I don’t accomplish the things I planned or get to do what I want to do for myself. Sometimes I have to change my expectations and not even do what I wanted to do for them. Because it’s not what they want or need. It’s just something I wanted!

This parenting thing is tricky! I love my kids so much. But sometimes I push them away and want my space. And they get the message that I only care about them for the school work or chores that they do. Every decision I make counts. It either conveys my love or my selfishness.

How I spend each moment counts. If I want them to know that I love them, I need to be with them. Not just managing or directing them, but experiencing the joy and fun right along with them.

I’ve really been thinking about my attitude as I spend time with my children. What am I sowing for those future generations?

And here are the lyrics:
