Blogging Absentee? That’s me! I am in a blogging lull.. my mind is lacking inspiration, and my days seem way too full.
So, what’s the best cure?
Bring Me…Give you JOY.
I decided to go back to why I began blogging to begin with…
My Children/My Family/The Lord… bring me Joy.
The other day, I was searching my heart for the things that matter most to me in life. As a wife, a homeschooling mom, servant of the Lord, sister, daughter, friend…. what do I give to others, and where does my JOY come from? Jesus … Others … and You… most of us know that this is a wonderful acrostic for JOY. And it is so practical.
I came across My 5 year old Sam the other day ..coloring, drawing with a red marker. I
am not fond of LOVE markers,, and the little splotches of red on his face will tell you why… but, that was not what I was thinking when I discovered him sitting quietly drawing me a picture.
He is another gift of JOY God brings me every day.
He loves to draw. By himself.. and he likes to talk about has been drawing.
I found him all alone, drawing with the infamous red marker,, and it hit me again…
That this is the JOY in my life. Another small piece of it.
I thought you might enjoy his sweet smile, and see the happiness in his eyes, that I get to see every day.
