Chasing What Matters

Colossians 3:2
Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.

I have changed my bedtime routine the last few weeks and I am getting ready to fix it. You see, instead of reading or visiting with my husband like before, I have started spending about an hour before bed playing around on Facebook.

On my way to work Friday it really hit me that I, in an effort to find a routine and then find time of my own to just relax, have neglected the time of reflective thinking and studying that I so enjoy. I don't want to become someone who is defined by the errands I run, what activities my kids are involved in, and my response to other people's facebook status. That life would be real comfortable, but without personal growth.

So I changed my prayer today from "God help me to find a sense of normal" to "Lord speak to me where ever you have me and don't let me become complacent".

Don't get me wrong, I am not canceling my facebook account. How else would I know what you are having for lunch? :) I just want to make sure that the temporal activities in my life don't take precedent over that which is eternal.

Now back to what counts- playing with my kids.

The Side Note...
This dress was made for Ruthie by my friend Brittany. I was so pleased with how it turned out that I have to share her website with you. I just told her roughly what I wanted and she came up with this. Isn't it precious? I took these right before we left for Ruthie's surgery.

SO true. There needs to be a balance in everything!

And I LOVE Ruthie's dress...she is adorable in those colors, and the matching hair bow is too cute! :) Your friend does beautiful work!!
