Today is the first day of Spring (right?) and I've decided to sit down and soak in all of God's glory and blessings in my life.
Well, at least that was my intention.
I woke up early this morning.
Well, I was WOKEN UP this morning by two very energetic children.
They were so energetic and ready for the day that they decided it would be a good idea to dump out an entire bucket of legos AND hot wheels (ALL OF THEM!) in order to get to their bucket of train tracks!
So, I found myself screaming and yelling in the very early hours of this "glorious" first day of Spring...
Sometimes I wish my best intentions would drive the reality of the day-to-day moments we call life. It sure would be nice to have a peaceful morning. And then I realized how selfish I can be as a mother, to desire a peaceful morning, when all the while my children just wanted to PLAY. They were ready for God's glory and blessings in their life.
They enjoy their toys.
They enjoy each other.
It's in moments like these that I return to my Savior and Creator. He is so quick to forgive, especially when I don't deserve it. My prayer today is for me... and for YOU out there who struggle to bast and soak in God's glory and blessings in your (my) life. May my life reflect God's unconditional love for me. And may moments like these remind me that it's never too late to hope for new beginnings... it's what He calls REDEMPTION.
