I can mark the time in our life when it started changing. Our life, that is. You have probably read about it in my sidebar. I talked about it here too. God has made exciting changes to our family, to our lives. I would NEVER want to go back to how our life was 4 years ago. Never.
But sometimes I feel so behind. I mean, come on....a 36 year old woman just now figuring out how to run a house? Just a few years ago finally figuring out how God intends families to work? Still learning to cook? Someone who has been a Christian for over 20 years just now understanding really simple parts of scripture?
It's pathetic! I am SO far behind where I should be. How has it affected my daughters? What about those 4 or 5 years Sweetheart spent being cared for by babysitters? What about all the hours I spent with my children while my attention was on "ministry?" What about all the Bible teaching and training I did NOT do with the girls all those years?
How can I ever catch up?
And then I read a quote by Voddie Baucher in a post at Making Home. Jess spent a long time listening to a sermon of his in order to get this quote. She posted it on her blog and it just gave me such a new perspective I had to share it. (Thank you, Jess for your hard work!) Please click over and read his quote.
I was only thinking of my life and not the impact my children will have for God's kingdom. And their children.
So, it isn't too late. I may be getting a late start, but God can transform our family and use the members of this family for His purposes.
That, my friends, is good news!
