A trip to Honduras, my phone breaking, our 147 Fundraiser, a rough day with one of my littles, Elijah preparing his first devo for the family, and so many others … So many moments in our day can give us an ETERNAL or EARTHLY perspective on the moment - IT really is our choice on which one we choose to concentrate on … Honestly wish I could say I choose the ETERNAL perspective all the time, but I don't … And the silly thing is the moment I choose the EARTHLY perspective I know I have chosen wrong (for that I am thankful) … God is shaping each of us all day long and we can go forward and backwards so many times in a day and YET HE IS STILL THERE WAITING AND WANTING TO SHAPE US FOR HIS GLORY …

I guess my challenge to myself and you is to STOP and really try to make more choices for the ETERNAL perspective … LOOK not at the big picture, but the only PICTURE and that is CHRIST … He works all things to the good of those who love the LORD … SO whether it is another 7 day stay in the hospital or a brand new job it will be more clear when we LOOK at it with perspective of ETERNITY !!! I speak with experience on this - I have spent many nights in the hospital w/ my sweet girl wondering why did this happen to her and so mad at the people who hurt her, but in those moments I hear God telling me that this time with her alone is precious and bonding … Our hospital time helped her to understand what a Mommy means … It allowed me time to meet all her needs and to show her what LOVE was … Maggie and I grew together on all those hospital visits and I know it is because of that isolated time together and ME never leaving her that she was able to believe she BELONG to her family … So you see PERSPECTIVE is so important and can change how any situation is viewed … It is a gift from God and he lets us CHOOSE how we will view all the moments of our life … I WANT TO CHOOSE THE ETERNAL PERSPECTIVE MORE AND MORE AND MORE !!!

just a little nugget from from the past … love how this angel has changed me !!!

AMEN SISTER! Some days we get stuck on our Earthly perspectives......and it just feels hard. So glad God's grace allows us to have a HEAVENLY perspective....when we keep our eyes on HIM!
