So tonight’s meal was awful. I mean seriously, awful. It is the first time in the history of our marriage (8 years) that I had made sandwiches because it wasn’t palatable. And I cried at the dinner table,in front of the kids, because of it. Until Mike said, “Would you like to talk about this now, or later?” And then he took a big bite of the *stuff* and a gulp of milk to chase it down. Can’t help but laugh at his desire to lesson the blow of having a cooking flop.
I’m feeling a little bit like this in a lot of areas right now. It is almost like I have to hit a wall, for the Lord to get my attention and refocus me in a new direction. I can’t give up cooking, as surely as I can’t give up trying again in my spiritual life and my quest for holiness. May the Lord bless both of these endevors as I try again tomorrow.
I can relate! We’ve all had those recipes that didn’t quite work out as planned! As for everything else, hang in there, He who began a good work in you will complete it. Remember our walk with the Lord and living a life of holiness is a work in progress. It is about progress, not perfection. The Lord graciously reminded me of this recently. I was beating myself up for something that I’m struggling with. He reminded me of who I was 7 years ago and where He has brought me to! Just hang in there we serve a wonderful loving God, He’s with you on the journey. And remember, we are all struggling with something! Today, my house is messy, there are school papers that need to be corrected, bread that needs baking, I could go on but I’ve already written a book here!(sorry) There will always be more to do in a day than we have time to do. Ask God, He’ll show you what to do next!
Have a wonderfully blessed day!
There is no greater friend in the world than you. So that must mean that you are a wonderful wife and mother!
Hang in there sweet friend. It must have been your turn to do the crying!
