The above quote is from a convicting post I read this past week.
It is so easy to lose sight of our purpose here on earth. So many things happen throughout the week. Housework, cooking, cleaning, baking, training children, lesson plans, grading, laundry…days can be so busy…always doing things.
By the time the evening rolls around, I’m ready for some ME time. I want quiet time, where I can sit and just unwind. That rarely happens. There is always something that needs to be done!! 🙂 And I also have to take advantage of the time after the boys go to bed to spend some quality time with Tim, because that is few and far between as well.
I lose focus. I get frustrated. I want some FUN! This post came at the most opportune time. It reminded me that my purpose is not to have fun. God has given me a very precious calling. Wife to My Love and mother to my boys. These days will never come back. Time is precious! I need to shine and be a blessing to my family.
Perhaps there will be time for “fun” when the boys are grown… 🙂 And in all honesty, life with my family IS fun! 🙂
