Last year, one of my worst fears came true. I had always prided myself in the fact that I had never experienced this and so far my children hadn’t either. Whenever I heard of someone dealing with this the ick factor would set in and I just couldn’t fathom it happening to me. Well, it did happen to me and through it I learned a few lessons.
Being in ministry was something I always knew I’d do. As a little girl, my dad was in ministry, so I grew up working in ministry. God placed a desire in my heart to work in ministry and I just had an inner feeling that I would grow up and marry a pastor.
My husband recently challenged me to read a Proverb a day. Proverbs is the wisdom book in the bible. We have been studying wisdom on Wednesday nights at our church. There is something so blunt about this book and I love that. It’s practical, profound and deep all at the same time. It cuts to the chase if you know what I mean.
Have you ever looked at your children and thought about how quickly the years are passing by and had a moment? Right after Colton was born, every one told me to cherish every moment because the years go by so fast. At the time I was knee-deep in diapers, feedings, schedules and sleep deprivation.
