except God

How many times have i started a blog post like this? Here it goes again...

So, I was cleaning my floors (again)....and a thought came to me. A question that I think God put on my heart.

What if no one ever thought of me as successful again? What if no one noticed me or thought I was important. Ever. No one. Except God. What would that feel like? Would that be enough? Would it change the way I make my decisions? What would it do to pride? And so many more....they just keep coming and coming.

This week, I feel like I have a little clarity. Honestly, I feel like I often have none, so this is pretty crucial to record. It is so easy for me to forget what I'm doing and I confuse my life with things that don't matter. But it is SO simple. Kind of. Sort of. But I think if I step back and take a look at the big picture, it really can be.

Love God. Love other people.

Simple, right? ;)

Matthew 22:37 (The Message)

37-40Jesus said, "'Love the Lord your God with all your passion and prayer and intelligence.' This is the most important, the first on any list. But there is a second to set alongside it: 'Love others as well as you love yourself.' These two commands are pegs; everything in God's Law and the Prophets hangs from them."


Parker's big week

Our little guy has had quite the week!

1. He was so, so sick. Honestly, over never seen any of my kids that sick for that long. Vomiting & diarrhea for 5 days straight! He couldn't even keep down a 1/2 teaspoon of medicine. So sad.

2. On a brighter note, he lost his first tooth!! He was so excited! And for the record, the Tooth Fairy showed up. She left some $$ & a poem...such a sweet fairy.

3. And then he got his first stitches. The boys were wrestling and things got a little out of hand, I guess. Split the back of his head open and had to go to the ER. He was so brave and charmed all of the nurses and doctors while they stitched him up. Of course...he's been doing that sort of thing since birth:)

Such a big week for our boy! I'm hoping for less action this time around :)
