Somehow this means even more to me than the blossoms that will come. If you feel like you are in an ugly, middle-phase of growth, don’t lose heart. Your efforts are. breathtakingly. beautiful.
Last week on a long work-at-home day, I asked my youngest son to make me some toast. He was eager to help but as I typed away at the dining room table I soon smelled the familiar aroma of burnt toast.
A sibling pointed out the obvious. I could hear mumblings back and forth along with scraping sounds. Since I was just grateful someone was making me a snack, I stepped in to celebrate with some gratitude.
“That looks great! Thank you for making me toast.”
“It’s a little bit darker.”
“That’s ok! I’m a little bit darker too. 😉”
Then I helped him smooth it all out with some delicious cream cheese. And it WAS good.
Too often we think our offerings to others aren’t good enough. But I think people are usually just glad to be on the receiving end of love, generosity, a compliment, or yummy breakfast foods – know I was. I think God is happy when we share those things with others too. Ministering happens in moments, and sometimes are widow’s mite means more to others than we ever imagined.
So think more of your burnt offerings, and enjoy the ones that happen to land on your plate. Life’s too short to be picky about our blessings! ❤️
God loves you!

We don’t always have the peace or order I long for in my home, but there are miracle moments when we have more than I would have expected.Continue reading “Heaven’s Power is Here for Us”
3 weeks ago my husband made a beautiful point about New Year’s resolutions. We were a couple of days into the 2020 and were finally sitting down with the kids to help them put some goals down on paper. I explained what a resolution was and said one of mine was to blog every day…and that I’d already missed doing that. He disagreed.Continue reading “3 Weeks Deep in New Year’s Resolutions”
