Ok, I finally couldn’t help it!  I just had to show off my grand dog!  What comfort he gives me particularly when I’m struggling. I had no idea!  Here’s my heart.

I Want.

  • I want to let others know I struggle with anxiety & discouragement, fight with sin everyday, & yet I cling to God.
  • I want to share lunch with an overwhelmed friend & focus on her needs.
  • I want to say, “I’m sorry!” a million times to a friend I wronged because I am ever aware of my failure & my need of God.
  • I want to make easy & simple meals for many friends – not just a few.
  • I don’t mind if there’s mud on my floor or a dog on my couch.
  • I don’t want to be critical of everything my friend has to say & think of myself more spiritual.
  • I want my kids to always know – without question – I LOVE THEM!
  • I want to hold hands with my husband & hug his neck every time I get the chance. I want to love, serve, support, & respect him.
  • I want to see people as being more important than things & for God to be the center of everything. EVERYTHING.
  • I want to enjoy and celebrate the people who God brings into my life ON PURPOSE!

This is what’s eternal.

I’m sure he and Mary were a good-looking young couple, but it must have been Mary’s heart, bent towards Heaven, that attracted him to her so strongly. How it must have surprised and shocked Joseph to learn of Mary’s pregnancy! (more…)
