A day in the life…

    Source: Here

First of all…is that owl not beyond awesome?
She looks like she’s about to tell somebody something.
I thought she’d be appropriate for this post, since I’m gonna share with you a day in my life.
I’m joining a cool linky party that Tiffani over at House of Belonging is having today!

I could show you the three loads of laundry that need to be washed, dried, folded and put away.
I could tell you the books that my kids are reading this week.
I could go on and on and on about my
…workout schedule
..the books I have completed and the ones I’m still trying to finish
…the bags that need to be packed for a trip that is coming very soon
…the fridge that needs to be cleaned out before said trip
…and the school schedule that we’re following
But, I’ll spare you all the details of our very normal everyday schedule.
I love words.
I live for the details in stories.
In fact, I’m pretty sure that my next big project is going to be adding a gallery wall 
full of some of my favorite quotes and sayings and words to live by.
I thought instead of giving you a run down of a typical day around here in terms of 
school and workouts and meals and such….
I’d give you some truths that we try to honor in the midst of our every day routine.
Let me just give one tiny disclaimer….I could have listed a gazillion more quotes and sayings and truths
but I had to stop somewhere…..
I hope these words inspire you the way they inspire us.
The times are countless that I remind my kids that it seems impossible until it is done.
…..their writing assignments.
…their math work.
…the dishwasher that they are asked to unload.
…the laundry that needs to be put away.
How many times have I reminded them to be true to who God made them to be?
I  have one that is a total people person and one that loves people but finds himself needing to retreat.
The one doesn’t understand why he sometimes needs a break. He struggles to appreciate his uniqueness.
They all do on any given day…struggle to love the qualities of their personalities.
God made them exactly like they are for his glory and for his purposes.  I really want them to get this.
Be a lamp, or a lifeboat or a ladder
Help one another.  Be nice.  Encourage someone.
I get a lot of chances every single day to be this to my kids and to my husband.
And, they get the same number of chances.
When you live with people, you are over loaded with opportunities to extend grace.
These are some of the words that make up our daily routine.
I feel like it’s been a decent day if we get at least half of these truths accomplished.
And, the good thing is…
His mercies are new every morning, so we can always head to bed and try again tomorrow.
