As a busy mom of three little ones I find being intentional about events and activities to be imperative. I need to plan and organize to get things done. If I don’t plan ahead it is really stressful to make things happen the way I want them to go. (Mom’s you would know this because nothing seems to work out on our timeline when children are involved:)
Today was one of those days, we had such a wonderful time as a family and the day isn’t even over yet:) I had to plan for it and make an investment ahead of time! We had a wonderful breakfast and devotional together this morning, went to music class, did school, went to homeschool skating and are now getting ready to make heart-shaped pizzas!!
I have found that being purposeful and intentional about loving my family and making memories together brings such joy!
Today, as we focus on LOVE I am reminded of how deeply the Father has loved us, that He would send His son for us. Now that I have a son I can somewhat relate to this concept and I cannot imagine the depth if love it would take to give one child’s life up for my other children! I am SO thankful that his ways are higher than ours!
You are his beloved. Do you know that? No matter what state you are in you are love by God, you were His dream and you are worth SO much to Him!!
If I give everything I own to the poor and even go to the stake to be burned as a martyr, but I don’t love, I’ve gotten nowhere. So, no matter what I say, what I believe, and what I do, I’m bankrupt without love. Love never gives up. Love cares more for others than for self. Love doesn’t want what it doesn’t have. Love doesn’t strut, Doesn’t have a swelled head, Doesn’t force itself on others, Isn’t always “me first,” Doesn’t fly off the handle, Doesn’t keep score of the sins of others, Doesn’t revel when others grovel, Takes pleasure in the flowering of truth, Puts up with anything, Trusts God always, Always looks for the best, Never looks back, But keeps going to the end. (1 Corinthians 13:3-7 MSG)
