to serve...

A scene from a beautiful church production called "A Walk Through Bethlehem"
"Pay attention and listen to the 
     saying of the wise;
   apply your heart to what I teach, 
for it is pleasing when you keep them 
     in your heart
   and have them ready on your 
     lips.
So that your trust may be in the LORD, 
   I teach you today, even you."


~Proverbs 22:17-20

There is something to be said about having your sweet ones home with you, choosing to homeschool, choosing a life style that goes against what main stream (aka-the world) promotes.

We commit to teaching them, but we also commit to laying our selves at the Lord's feet, along with our pride, our "me" time, our selfish tendencies, our comfort zone...our selves.

We choose to serve, no strings attached.

Lots of prayer but a priceless fruit... :)

Praying for contentment in your hearts, the peace that surpasses all understanding and the gift of truly laying it all at the feet of Jesus, sitting right there as Mary did and not bustling about in frustration as Martha did, though she meant well but was missing the point.  May we not miss the point...relationship, servant hood, love...

when in doubt, smile :)

good stuff...
