Happy end of september folks, seems I tend to realize at the end of every month that I have not yet written my monthly blog.. And to think I used to write a daily blog.. ugh.. I couldn’t imagine still doing that. I realize that at the time in my life I had all three children in full time school as I also went to college myself and seen to it that I was home when my family was home, cleaning our home, prepping dinner, and starting on homework. I also seen to it that I got out a daily devotion, yup because it filled me up and I hope it filled others up too. Now some many years later, some many college courses later, some many certificates, degrees & licenses later, a few job titles later, a few more kids later- (grandkids that is) *Happy face emoji here.. ecstatic emoji actually. :D– and here I am still writing my thoughts and prayers, desires, hopes, wishes, cares, opinions, teachings, lessons, counseling, & conspiracies… lol.. sorry had to add that last one, because we all know if you are an adamant follower of my writings, then ya know I LOVE to SPREAD THE OUCHY BUT WOWSERS TRUTHS! (And that to many is considered conspiracy..) too much for the brain to fathom..lol- don’t worry- I get it, I truly get it.. In all things of life, enlightenment is key.. and there is always room for spiritual growth-that is actually the number one purpose of our lives.. to grow up ourselves spiritually and to help assist others in that process.
Well, I wanted to share a bit of a mommy blog I read a bit earlier and it got my attention and led me to this blog…Theses quotes are so true.. “In this stage of life, you are dealing with guilt. Guilt over having a career, and not spending enough time with your kids, or guilt over staying home with your kids, and not doing enough to contribute financially. Guilt over being too harsh with your kids. Too lenient. Guilt that your house is clean, but your kids were ignored, or guilt that you enjoyed your children all day, and now your husband is coming home to filth. Guilt. In this stage of life, you are bombarded daily with a whole host of decisions. Some of them life-changing, some of them not. None of them with clear cut answers. Do I vaccinate my kids? Do I not? Do I send them to public school? Homeschool? Charter school? Do I continue to breastfeed? Do I blow the budget so that I can buy all organic? Do I force my child to apologize, even though the apology will be insincere? You don’t know the answers to ANYTHING, but you feel constant pressure to figure out EVERYTHING.”
Those quotes are my mother hood in a nutshell and then some. My whole purpose of this post is to show forth our perfection.. YES Mammas you heard me right, ‘WE ARE PERFECT!” Whether we work out of the home, in the home or from the home, as long as we are praying God’s lead for ‘what is best for our families’ and we are in agreement with our family, (meaning-sharing in the decisions and considering everyone involved)- then we are doing the right and noble thing. I truly believe that if I take my first few moments (or more) with My loving heavenly Father each morning, sharing with Him all my concerns for my family, and asking for His guidance in all things, I know HE will always lead, guide, and show me the way in which I should go.. do .. be … and in that I trust that I will make the right decision for my family… ALWAYS! In God we are perfect!
~”For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus.” – Phil 1:6
~Now don’t get me wrong, this is not a brag post, (noting back to the beginning)- all the courses I took – I took because I felt led to do so. Taking them took time and dedication, and lots and lots of discernment and faith to continue in all my quest. One extemley important fact I want to point out is this.. I fail more than I accomplish. O.o
I ponder daily if I’m doing the right thing, now that I home school- I work from home, I still own my husbands business, (yes- you read that right, It’s his business that I am owner of… not mine); my buisness is in the works of my heavenly father. I do what I hear My heavely Father ask me to do. My husbands business I pray for daily that God show him the way in all he does. I pray all the works of his hands be of Gods will and way- and I pray that he treat our emplyees right, fair and well. I pray that he blesses all that he deal with in a days time. I pray that if he choose to be Gods mouth piece and hands that he do just that, allow God to be the author of his words and his ways. May his words and ways always line up with Gods character… may he bless and not curse. May he help and not hurt. As a praying wife it’s all I can do because God knows I’m an epic failure at wifing.. (*no sarcasm inserted, just plain God’s honest truth!)..And my outright surrender to God, I know He shall meet all our needs in His Riches and Glories! It’s all about God-not us anyway!!
YES & AMEN!!
All my perfect LOVE In CHRIST, Diana xo :*
