Obviously, I have been a way for a bit of time. In that time we have added two more blessings to our family. We now have six amazing little ones! If you would have told me 15 years ago that I would be a mom to a large family, I would not have believed it. Now, I can not imagine our life any other way.
I am still a Classical Conversations Foundations and Essentials Director for our local community. This year we have 1 in Challenge A, 3 in Foundations and Essentials, plus my two in childcare. The community aspect of this program is amazing. We are very much like a family on our campus.
The past few weeks I have really been searching for answers to some life questions for our family. In the midst of my break from blogging, my old url was purchased by someone when I didn’t know it expired. I thought I had lost everything and was truly devastated about it. Then my fabulous web people over at HoneyComb Code was able to retrieve and get all of my content back! I was amazed and so grateful. As I have spent the day fixing all of my broken links on Pinterest for my older posts, I have gotten to reflect on my entire blogging journey. Many of those “old” posts are just as relevant today as they were the day I wrote them. I see God’s hand in so much of it.
The one posts that absolutely hit me right where I am sitting is the one called Housework IS a Ministry. As I sit here knee deep in the laundry for a family of 8, and the dishes are stacked high, yet again, for the third time today, I read this post and reflect on what it is I am called to do. It is more about Him and less about me. Sometimes it seems that what we are called to is “less than” some of the bigger callings other people get to experience. It’s not! What you do is an important piece to the puzzle. What has He called you to today?
