I was able to scrap to my heart's content!!! Yay!! I finished a layout for the So Sketchy Blog. I can't wait to post it on here!! I also started a little mini celebrating my three kids relationship throughout the years. I have a couple more pages to go, but here is what the front cover looks like:
It is so fun to see the pictures of the three of them throughout the years. I will post it in it's entirety when I finish!
It was also a sad weekend as my mom, who has been fighting lung cancer for the last 7 months, was admitted into the hospital with pneumonia. Things don't look very good, but I will always have hope. I'm praying for you mom!!!
My mom's difficulties lead me to examine my own life. What is important? Why do I do the things I do? Today is the day to take time and smell the roses. Do those things you have been putting off. Let those chores wait till later and do something fun with your kids.
Each day comes bearing its own gifts. Untie the ribbons ~ Ruth Ann Schabacker
A devotional I just stumbled upon used this verse for the day,
John 10:7-10 “So Jesus said to them again, ‘Truly, truly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep. All who came before Me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not hear them. I am the door; if anyone enters through Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture. The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they might have life, and have it abundantly.’”
Dictionary.com defines abundance as
1. an extremely plentiful or oversufficient quantity or supply: an abundance of grain.
2. overflowing fullness: abundance of the heart.
3. affluence; wealth: the enjoyment of abundance.
In other words "more than enough". Jesus came to give abundant life, abundant peace, and abundant joy. How much pleasure...How much beauty...How much fame and success... How much money... How much is more than enough? Life with God is abundant. I need to stop searching and seeking for these things in the world and realize I have all I need in Christ. I need to take the time to enjoy what he has given me today. That is enough! May we not work so hard for all of these things and miss the small little joys that are right in front of our eyes if we would just open them and look! That is my goal for the day. To see what is in front of my eyes and not take any thing for granted!
