these pix have nothing to do with my post

I think this is Luminate. Mel got to meet them at Camp Electric. 

Bart Millard, lead singer from MercyMe...sings as well live as on radio. 

Jon Micah Sumrall, lead singer from Kutless...my new favorite. 

Jeremy Camp, here and below. One of our family favorites.

so, as the title stated, these pictures, though amazing and fun...have nothing to do with my blathering here...they are just some fun pix I stumbled upon, on this laptop. I really need to be better about uploading my phone pix to this computer or taking pix with my camera but my iPhone takes such good pix, it's hard to wanna take them with my cam. does that make sense?

Yah. ok...so a little update of sorts.

Psalm 146:2 While I live will I praise the Lord: I will sing praises unto my God while I have any being.

Is this not a really beautiful verse?
I have, in no way, shape or form, arrived, as a believer in Jesus Christ. I struggle every day with my attitude or thoughts. I do wake up, get out my Bible, notebook and pen, sit down, usually at the table, occasionally out on the deck, to read God's Word, pray, sing....and that is the ONLY sure thing in my life right now. He is refining, shaping, challenging me. If you meet me, know this.

God's promises are true. I'm so thankful for this.

Hebrews 13:2 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, and to day, and forever.

Proverbs 15:4 A wholesome tongue is a tree of life but perverseness therein is a breach in the spirit.

Just a few of the truths I've been trying to cling to. More on these later.

David is working a lot...I'd say too much but this work is a gift and he's good at it. amazing actually. (I feel like John Watson, blogging about Sherlock. My Sherlock friends will get this joke). David is cool because every day is an adventure to him. He finds JOY in the everyday...doesn't mean he's always "happy" or fun to be around but he is radiating the Joy of the Lord. Sometimes, I don't get him or even like him...but I always love him and thank the Lord for putting him into my life. He's a wunderkind. He holds me accountable and leads his family well. I thank the Lord for him.

I just re-read that. All that to say, I'm renewed in my role as his helpmeet...He is my first human priority. My goal is to be a good wife, teach my daughters how to be good wives. Show my sons what a good wife looks like.

 My kids are my 2-6th priorities. If I have time after that to be anything more, to anyone else, then BONUS!!

Why am I blogging about this today? Not sure...felt it needed to be said. for myself and maybe for someone else. There is absolutely NOTHING wrong with being a wife and mother. It is the highest calling, no matter what feminists tell you or any other person for that matter. I am honored to be a wife and mom.

For the mom that is struggling to make sense of it all...for the new mom, for the seasoned mom...for the mom with an almost 19 year old, 17 year old, 15 year old, nearly 11 year old, 6 year old and baby boy who should be two toddling around but isn't...he's instead walking streets of gold. For those moms. Moms who call on the name of Jesus Christ and moms who question....

gotta run, little Molly moo is done with her bath. Much love and praying going on over here.
