insights from a daughter of the King, teacher, farmer's wife, and Mommy


every morning

every morning i'm waking up to the life God has given me
it's beautiful

and waiting

i hear it calling
how are you going to matter today

and some days i choose not to climb 
i choose not to take the path lest traveled
i am consumed by the world and all it has to offer

but other days i take the stairs
i fight the warfare of the day
the complaints of the culture
and maybe i don't feel like i won at the end of the day
maybe i didn't make a difference at all
i feel worn and ragged

but then you see a light
a break in the clouds of life
one of your youth girls offers to pray 
someone says hey i miss you writing
your kid chooses kindness and can recite the first 10 books of the bible
a mission plan starts to unfold
an adventure is discovered
talents are revealed
and you get a glimpse at all He has to offer
and you know you have to keep fighting

{sorry i've been taking a break, i've opened up the blank page of a post many many times over the last months and just really found i had nothing say, but today the words just poured out.  thanks to everyone who reads my blog, hopefully it won't be so long till i write again}

  1. It is my first time i visit here. I found so many entertaining stuff in your blog, especially its discussion. From the tons of comments on your articles, I guess I am not the only one having all the leisure here! Keep up the excellent work.
