Sometimes I forget
Sometimes I forget what it's like to have a spotless clean house.. A peaceful moment.. Nothing to do.. Sometimes I forget what it's like to go to the bathroom by myself.. Or to read a book that doesn't rhyme or have vibrant illustrations... Sometimes I forget that I once was just Jennifer and not "mommy". Sometimes I forget that it is a blessing to forget so much.. It means that I have been allowed to be used and to see a new day. Today, I am thankful. Thankful for the 3 kids that call me mom and mommy.. Thankful for the 1 that I have yet to meet but already love tremendously.. Thankful for a husband that loves the Lord with all his heart, mind and strength and loves me as Christ loved the church. Sometimes I forget to be thankful. But not today... Today I remember that I am to press on towards the goal of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
