In this season, it sometimes feels like I spend more time redirecting, teaching, and reteaching my kids than just enjoying being with them.  Then tonight when we got home from a busy evening, I realized there still clothes out on the line.  I headed out to get them and within a few minutes, H had come out and wanted to help.  Generally this means she does one thing and is off to do something else.  Instead, she helped get the rest of the clothes off the line and a few minutes later N came out and helped finish.  As I was quietly marveling at the moment, God gently told me to remember this.  He is the Lord of the Universe, and tonight He took the time to encourage me.  Thank you, Lord, for a glimpse of the harvest that is coming if I do not give up.
Galatians 6:9 (ESV)  9 And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.

One Word - 2015

Come, let us bow down in worship,
let us kneel before the Lord our Maker;
for he is our God
and we are the people of his pasture,
the flock under his care.
Psalm 95:6-7
