I was asked to speak at church about saving money. Im nervous. I have a big mouth and have so much to say to so many women but I loathe public speaking. I get nervous and I stutter and don't say everything that really is on my heart.
Last night as I was driving Emma to her drama practice, I began praying and thinking about the big night. I started to reflect back to my own season of change and when God started to reveal to me the true meaning of life. Not big houses, cars and vacations... but what He saw as a fulfilling life. The core of the family, getting back to basics and just to love one another. I began really looking back a couple of centuries at the early settlers and their views on life. Even though life was much harder, it was also much simpler. What we see as modern conveniences (cell phones, internet,ipods...) are some of the very first things to steal our peace and our joy. The things we LOVE the most ( especially me) are the things that cause the most stress and takes us away from quiet time with the Lord.
What a hard balance our generation has... and those to come.
Im not sure this post makes sense, its just my thoughts about my upcoming night. But I do know that if we always strive to put God first. Our priorities will ALWAYS be in order!
