So yesterday at church our pastor asked us what we were keeping our eyes on. Were we letting the many distractions of our daily life get in the way of the big picture.
Wow sometimes the Lord just has to shout in my ear for me to listen. Talk about amazing timing.
Yes I was getting really focused on what was happening around me. With the boys and their vehicle issues, the money that is involved with getting them all moved out and starting life on their own. It was really getting me down and I was getting very much involved in that instead of focusing on one simple fact.
Jesus died for our sins!
He used yesterday's sermon to scream at me. It made me start to really appreciate even more the things around me. I have so much to be thankful for.
On that note hubby and I went to town tonight to have a coffee date with our middle son and his girlfriend. It was amazing!! We talked and talked and laughed and laughed. Made some plans for a couple weekends away for them to hopefully come out, watch the grey cup ( we love our football in this house), and hopefully set up the tree. I must say I am looking so forward to it!!
Plus he let us know that he would be coming out Christmas Eve to spend the night so it will be for sure at least the four of us and hopefully our oldest can be home as well.
It makes a Mom's heart feel full!!
