day 27, 28, 29

Well computer trouble, life and just being honest some really heavy cravings have gotten to me !!! It has NOT BEEN my best showing … I have gotten my cardio in, but also some pizza and donuts while celebrating Elijah's birthday … I contemplated NOT telling you, but I am writing this blog as a way to hold myself accountable and to try and NOT SABOTAGE my efforts for the long run … I will get back on track tomorrow and I will push forward and not beat myself up about my mistakes … NO day goes perfectly and I just simply STUNK it up … I was actually pretty sick THIS  morning from all of the THAT type of food, so I am definitely excited about getting back to my program !!!

No Matter What You Say …

There are going to be days that no matter what you say you can't convince your child OF THAT THING, you can't heal a hurting friend, or you can't take back words that have been said … I am a talker and love to communicate, but mostly I am a FIXER … I want to fix the situation, the person, the problem, the hurt, or the misunderstanding … Well let's be realistic and say that is usually NOT GOING TO WORK on most days … I have been facing an issue with one of my sweet kiddos that no matter what I say I can tell they just don't get it in their heart and believe it in their mind … I makes me sad as a mother that I can't convince my child in regards to this issue, but what Jesus is telling me is that instead of concentrating on the issue I should take my words to point them to HIM in a deeper way.   He will be the one my child can lean on when those thoughts or moments want to take charge … You know there is always going to be another problem, hurt, or spoken wrong, but if I can teach my children (and myself) to seek Jesus when those times come, we can all move past them quicker, forgive easier, and be thankful sooner …

Comical - so keep watching !!!

I am starting to realize that we are some serious comedy for people around us … I am ok with that because I guess if you are looking close enough in in to our chaos you will also see our amazing Jesus … We are a messy mess and our family has its struggles and down days … We love each other and love doing a fun, crazy life together … We support each other and challenge each other daily … We try to point each other to Christ and learn lessons from our mistakes and failures … We try to be encouragers to each other and say kind words even when we grit our teeth as we say them (hee hee)  … Our socks don't usually match and we have at least one kiddo with a runny nose daily … We are loud and silly … We rarely have a meal where someone doesn't spill something … We tattle on each other because of course we think LIFE SHOULD BE FAIR, until we realize that the moment we tattle we see all of our mistakes in that moment … We can't walk from point A to point B with out at least one person tripping and falling and crying… We ask really funny questions ALL the time … Then we laugh some more … We fight bedtime every night, love chocolate chip cookies, and we LOVE LOVE LOVE big family breakfasts  … We talk about and get excited about family vacations and serving trips … We are memory makers… We live our life OUT LOUD, so feel free to watch -- please don't ever think we have it all together or can do it better than anyone else … BUT DO LISTEN AND WATCH CLOSELY TO SEE THE JESUS WE LOVE !!!

I have always taken to heart the scripture that talks about how we should be READY TO GIVE AN ACCOUNT / TESTIMONY FOR CHRIST … Our lives are a work in progress to point others to HIM and to love HIS children … We are simply imperfect people trying to share his MESSAGE of love and hope !!!
