Lately, we have had more time as a family and less time with other useless items that can so many times consume our lives!! When I titled this "Prayer & Faith the BEST wireless connection" I should also so MY ONLY CONNECTION!! Other than electric and a land line telephone the last month I have not had Internet, satellite or much cell phone service.
Honestly, I don't think it hurt at all- I was packing- moving- unpacking- settling in....etc. And I often get distracted by minor electronic "black box" devices. I have had TONS more prayer time with God....which is what I needed. I didn't realize how low on FUEL I was.....just barely making it day to day with minutes spent talking and reading his word. And these days seem to be less stress and more slowed down pace- wonder if that has anything to do with I have a lot more time to spend with God.
I have taken a few steps back and looked at the past few years of my life. Many times overwhelming when I try to pack as much as I can into one day....and then totally exhaust myself to the point of anger!!
Is it worth it??
ONE thing that I am MOST excited about in our new journey......HOME SCHOOLING.....these 2 Gifts from God!!! Oh my...I really wanted to last year- but my husband and I were not on the same page. Now after we have seen the difference between the two....WE are agreed 100%
This new journey on the road of life that we are on I know will come with bumps and bruises. But as long as we have God to guide us and He already has....and we keep him as a lamp unto our path....we will survive and we will go where ever He leads us. Our path is not straight and narrow nor is our future in our hands. God is the one and only who knows where and what we will do tomorrow. So I hope I can start blogging again about our new journey and new adventures in schooling at home. My Internet access is limited but my mind is so full of wonderful stories to tell.
So here is my advice so far from my journey- STOP- SLOW DOWN....smell the roses, look at the rainbows, hold your child; husbands hands as you walk and talk. And you don't have to tell or show the whole world....because ALL that matters in that ONE moment is God sees your heart and He sees your actions and He is pleased.....not to mention the time spent putting down the less important items and picking up the FULL of LIFE things the reward in the end is MUCH...MUCH GREATER!!!
