I recently was chatting with a friend about how short life is. The longer I’m a parent, the more I realize that life really is short.
I want to enjoy my kids everyday, even when they’re cranky, tired, and one or more wants to be held-all day. One day, they won’t want to be held, and I’ll wish I had stopped what I was doing more often to hold my kids when asked.
I want to enjoy my husband, not just make it, survive, plug along, but thrive. I just read this amazing article about investing in your marriage. Wow it was convicting (http://writeeditrepeat.blogspot.com/2010/06/putting-your-marriage-first-may-be.html).
I want to enjoy my friendships, not worry about what people think, but just love them for who they are-whether they love me for who I am, or not.
And finally, I want to love God more. I want my focus to be so enmeshed with His that I am not worried about the day, finances, kids, relationships, and more. I want to trust Him and entrust those I love to Him wholeheartedly.
I don’t want 5 years from now, 10 or 20 to look back and wished I had done things differently. Life is short and rich, and amazing. I’ve spent the last week experiencing God doing some amazing things. Can’t even explain it, really, just knowing He is there and He is with me.
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own undsertanding, but in all your ways, acknowledge HIM, and He will make your paths straight.” Prov 3:5-6
