Another Chance, Another Change

Monday, April 2, 2012

I realize I am get a new chance every morning. I also get new mercies from God (Lamentations 3:22-23) every time I get up. Today I am excited about that. Lately life has been some kind of wonderful around here. My pregnancy continues to be a blessing. I'm going on week 28, which means the end of my favorite of all trimesters. I thought I was nesting kind of early when I decided to dedicate 1 hour a day to clean one of my closets but I thought I was just jumping on the Spring Cleaning (really, wisdom) wagon. My kids are an amazing blessing from God. I've been asked lately if I think my youngest one will adapt well to the baby. I'm guessing she will. She loves babys, baby dolls and all girly things. I think she will be pleasantly surprised to realize she gets to have a baby around. Another interesting things happening soon is that in a few weeks I will be a Stay-at-home mom for 3 years. My son turns 3 soon, which means that's how long I've been at home taking care of the kids. In my future book "I have nothing to Prove" I plan to explain how this season of life has helped me discover who I am, no matter how much others think that staying at home means career suicide. I've been developing this "I have nothing to Prove" theory for the last 3 years and it's been quite fun - more details in later posts. I can honesly say that taking care of the kids has been the most challenging, yet, most satisfying thing I've done. The more I submit to God's plans for me I realize the eternal repercussions for them, and the character building effect for me. Each day I have a new chance to make an impact not only in their lives but in the lives of the people around me. I make plenty mistakes, but with this new chance I can make a new change. My husband is the primary person who keeps giving me chances to make changes, and for that I am thankful. I think that Mrs. Ruth Graham was the one who said a great marriage is the union of two forgivers. I thank God for the constant forgiveness I receive from my husband and his belief in me. He shows me love by giving another chance to change and with these chances our relationships matures and grows. This post was a little different than most but I just wanted you to have a little pick in what's going on in my heart. Have an amazing week!
