I went out to dinner with a friend on Friday night and we had a good time. It reminded me of my journey these past 10 years. My journey with Christ. Boy, I have changed!! Sometimes, I don't recognize old Lisa, but I couldn't be the person I have become if it weren't for my past experiences. God has a plan and I trust HIM. My journey has been long but also a blessed one.
Saturday, I was just about in tears that whole day. We were all home together as a family. We weren't really doing anything special. I was sewing a Christmas gift, Karl was cleaning and the kids were playing. I was listening to classic Christmas songs; Joy to the World and The Little Drummer Boy. It just brought memories. At that moment I realized what 'being home' meant. With God in my heart (leading me), being my husband's helpmeet and a mother to my children (gifts from God); I found myself overwhelmed. To be able to stop and look with God's eyes... I know He was smiling right there with me. I thank the Lord each and every day for my blessings and to continue to bless my family and friends.
I pray to be a light to others and to be able to share my journey with Christ.
I just realized (or remembered) that today I turn 42 years young!!! I pray the Lord will bless me (in my journey) and my family another wonderful 42 years.
I pray for you that you stop and really see with God's eyes. What do you see? What can you change?
Dear Lord Jesus, Thank you for the birth of your Son. That we continue to look towards the heaven not only in the month of December but each and every day of our lives. Help us see what you see. Lead us all toward your light. Amen.
PS-I wanted to add after Karl helped Joshua put his lego plane together. We watched Karl start up the fireplace then we all cuddled up together to watch TV. My cute 5 year old was sitting on my lap. He turned to me and said, "Mom, I want to sit on your lap forever". These are the moments I live for.
