Mommyville

It’s been amazing this week living in this mommyville.  First, let me just say that I LOVE my kiddos and am blessed to be their mom.  As college years get closer, I am reminded that our relationship will be changing because they won’t be under our roof all the time… yikes.  But this week surely has been a test of emotions for me.  Lisa has twice a days in band camp, Becca is working and Griffin has had his wisdom teeth pulled.  AND their have been schedule pick ups and uniform fittings and running to the airport with my sister and niece.  I love doing it all… but it is really difficult doing it while having a full time job.  Thankfully, my husband handled sophomore schedule pick up for me yesterday during Griffin’s surgery time. 🙂  and my sweet sister handled the band uniform fitting with Lisa…. I couldn’t have done most of this summer without my sister helping me.  I honestly don’t know what I will do when she leaves to go back to Qatar.. it will be another year before we can see each other again…probably.  But! what I have learned this week is this… that although it’s really ALOT of responsibility and it’s not always fun or what I really want to do.. I am serving Him.  I am serving those that I love.  In being obedient to Him and what is my primary ministry, I am receiving peace and strength.  And when I stumble… well He’s there to pick me up.

  Abundant peace belongs to those who love Your instruction; nothing makes them stumble.

(Psalm119:165)

Praying that you are serving Him and finding joy in the tasks of your Mommyville. 🙂  They grow up and away very quickly.

Peace,

D
