Me, my feelings, my life

So I am trying something new...I will be writing things of myself, for myself...I will also post fun things too, but there will be some changes.

" LOVE IN THE HOME"

If I lived in a house of spotless beauty
with everything in it's place~
but not have love, I am a
housekeeper...not a homemaker.

If I have time for waxing, polishing
and decorative achievements
but have not love, my children
learn cleanliness...not Godliness.

Love leaves the dust, in search
of a child's laugh.
Love smiles at tiny fingerprints on
the newly cleaned window pane.

Love wipes away the tears before
it wipes up the spilled milk.
Love picks up the child before it
picks up the toys.

Love is present through the trials.
Love reproves, teaches and
is responsive.

Love crawls with the baby,
walks with the toddler,
runs with the child,
then stands aside to let the
youth walk into adulthood.

Love is the key that opens
salvation's message to a childs heart.

Before I became a mother I took glory
in my house of perfection.
Now I glory in God's perfection
of my child he lent to me.

As a mother, there is much I must
teach my child, but the greatest of
all...is LOVE.
(unknown and added to by me)

This is me to a tee...you come to my home and it is not the neatest, cleanest or anything we think it should be but there is love and respect...and LOVE!

I LOVE your honesty. I totally agree that your blog should be FOR you... a place to express your feelings and your goals, not just a record of events.
Love reading about your sweet family :)
