It's easy to think of all of the things I should be doing.
It's easy to want to be more disciplined.
It's easy to think things will "happen" easier, next month. Or year. Whatever.
It's easy to journal about the things I want to change.
The personal growth I would like to see.
Today, I realized that I want more.
More of Jesus
More of HIS love
More quality time with my boys
More "at home" dates with my husband.
(in my heart)
And, the list could go on. It's so often, that I just sit here, and think of the things that I should change. I should do something profitable with my time. Instead of taking 5 minutes to "check my email" (or whatever it may be ) 5 times a day.. Why don't I sit down and read my almost-2-year-old a story.
Or, get down on the floor and play "choo-choo" with him...or cars...or balls..or whatever.
Why don't I get down and tickle the baby on the floor.
Or, get down on my knees by my bed for some communion with my Precious Jesus.?
Or, pull out my journal and pen, and jot down 10 things on my "thankful list"?
What about taking a few minutes to write a little note of blessing/encouragement to a friend?
Jesus...Help me to cultivate more of this into my life... more of You.
