See you in the Fall!

No, we're staying right here at home, but I'm heading off the computer until after school starts - at least. Too much to do, most importantly is reconnecting to the Vine (Jesus), and loving up my husband and kids. The computer is what I do when I'm bored or just otherwise want to avoid something. I have a Lord, an amazing husband and three amazing children who I want to give ALL of me. I don't mind. I'm not one of those who needs my own time really. I get it here and there and am so blessed for that! This first day may be the toughest (mainly because we were away this weekend and of course that means a lot to do on Monday morning - things I'd like to avoid ;) ) - but it will only be tough if I focus on it too much. Thankfully my life is full and blessed and when I focus on the Lord and all He's done for me, I won't have time to mull on it :) I'm so looking forward to this - and who knows, as I organize and weed out the unnecessary junk in our home and my life, I may just find the computer is one of those things I won't want to add back in :)

God bless and may you have a God and family-focused summer!

I miss you! :(

Stay, stay at home, my heart, and rest;
Home-keeping hearts are happiest,
For those that wander they know not where
Are full of trouble and full of care;
To stay at home is best.

Weary and homesick and distressed,
They wander east, they wander west,
And are baffled and beaten and blown about
By the winds of the wilderness of doubt;
To stay at home is best.

Then stay at home, my heart, and rest;
The bird is safest in its nest;
O'er all that flutter their wings and fly
A hawk is hovering in the sky;
To stay at home is best.
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
