In a land far, far away lived a beautiful woman. She had five children and a husband who adored her and hung on her every word. Her children obeyed without question. They were all perfectly dressed and coiffed.
Her home was magnificent, clean, and welcoming. She spent her days reading to her children, teaching them lessons they were eager to learn, and baking cookies. Dinner was always delicious and nutritious. Wonderful aromas always filled the air. The laundry was always done, dishes always cleaned and toilets were always scrubbed.
The evenings were quiet and relaxing. A fire flickering in the living room. Children reading books and playing board games. And she had deep meaningful conversations with her husband. Every evening ended with family devotions that the children actively participated in and enthusiastically learned and applied to their lives. When the children went to bed they all said 'Mom, your the best!'
She ended her day with an encouraging word from the Lord and a kiss from her husband. All is well in the land far, far away.
That is not my life here. Life has been far too busy with little to show for it. I am hoping to get back to blogging on a regular basis. I am looking forward to the holidays. We are looking at how we can make this holiday season different and meaningful. I would love to share them with you.
