And..... I'm back

I've been gone... Have you noticed?

 Being an accountant, this is my crazy year end schedule at work.  BUT----January is almost over and my crazy year end work schedule is just about done. Yea!  

 Time for a happy dance! 

 I haven't had much time for anything. And I've missed a lot. 
 Missed all of the reorganizing that I see so many pinning on Pinterest. Pantries, closets, desks and drawers. All fresh and clean and one day I'll be there too. 

I've missed the crafting, the New Year's Resolutions, the snow days being bundled up and cozy by the fire with a good book.

But the thing I missed the most was my Family.

  • Missed family nights. 
  • Missed goodnight stories. 
  • Missed bath time.  

 So for me, cupboards and pantries can wait a bit longer. The thing I long for most of all is cuddle time with the people who mean the most to me. 

Why is it when the pressure is on its these that you love the most that are the first to get snapped at, the first you lose your patience with, the first to get the short end of the stick.  While I'm ashamed that this is true, it reminds me that God has an answer for everything-even how I SHOULD behave when the pressure is on.

 Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends... So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love. (1 Corinthians 13:4-8, 13 ESV) 

  • Was I patient? Doubt it. 
  • Kind? Not always.
  • Rude? More then likely. 

 But, "love never ends". Today is a new day. By the grace of God I have a new day to show love like Christ teaches me to. Thank you Lord for this lesson.

with love,
