Blogging Has Begun

I am way behind in joining the blogging revolution. Let's be honest, I am not even sure if I'll keep up this blog, but I am going to give it a shot. I've always been a "journaler" but with two kids I am finding it hard to sit down and pour my heart out. For some reason, typing on my laptop and updating my facebook status has been a little more doable. I suppose because I like to sit and journal with a cup of tea and peace, but that is hard to come by at the moment.

Currently, my aim as a mom is to be joyful. I was reminded this morning that "In God's presence is abundance of Joy." (from Psalm 16) I have GOT to be in His presence to experience joy and therefore to pass that joy on to my children. Balancing life is something I've just not mastered yet, but I'll keep getting up and trying again and maybe by the time they are in college, I'll get it!

Today I had my "quiet time" at the table over blueberry muffins with my daughter. There was nothing quiet about it but it wasn't a waste of time. I found that verse in Psalm while doing my study on the life of David and it was encouraging to see God at work. He meets us where we are, even if it is with two children in tow. He's good like that. I have to remember that he gave me these two blessed kiddos and provided me the opportunity to stay home with them. He knows their ins and outs and the level of care that they require. He'll surely still be present with me and work in my life even if I can no longer sit down for an hour of total quiet with him on a daily basis. What a good God we have!!!
