Story of my Life by Gwen Oatsvall | Edit Post
I joke with Suzanne sometimes about the things I covet and most of them have to do with a new house ... More space, bigger kitchen, cuter furniture, screened in porch w/ a fire place, back yard with no freeway, etc ... The funny thing is the desire leaves me as soon as I say it ... I also have my list of things I would buy, donate, and do if I ever won the Lottery (which I have never played) ... It is all a goofy little game of desiring THINGS ... I guess the beauty is now I can easily push those thoughts aside and think of all the blessings God has given me and all that I have been INSTRUCTED to do ... All the orphans I have been called to SPEAK UP FOR !!!... So in all actuality, I am not sure if the money was there I would do any of those things ... Now go back about 10 years and I would have spent every penny on myself, my family and a new home ... It is amazing how God can get a hold of you if you will just let him ... HE has me ... ALL of ME !!! Don't get me wrong, because on the hard days, I choose not to turn to Him to right away ... I throw a fit just like my kids do (and I am pretty good at it) ... Not even sure why I am doing this post, except that we were home all day and I watched the kids build forts, ding my walls, spill gatorade all over my floor, miss the toilet, dump every thing I have organized on the floor, jump on furniture, wrestle, and just wallow (Webster says "To roll about, flounder, clumsily, and lie around as for refreshment) all over the place ... NOW, if I had a big fancy POTTERY BARN house, would I have let them do that ??? Who knows ... guess I don't have to worry about finding out though ... lol ... Again, totally rambling on this post, but just a bit giddy at a relaxing day at home w/ the kids and my DIET COKE ... HOPE YOU ENJOYED YOUR DAY ...
