I’m a wife, mother, daughter, sister, and friend. And a child of God. And I’m most thankful for that.
I’m married to a wonderful man, who doesn’t mind my crazy habits, silly quirks, moody moments, and “I don’t feel like doing housework today” days. He’s my best friend. We’ve been married for 12 years. It seems like forever…..and I mean that in a good way!
God has blessed us with 3 amazing kids. Who are more like us then I ever imagined possible. (And I mean some of our good attributes, too……..and yes, we do have some of those!) We’re trying to raise our kids to know and love our Lord, Jesus Christ.
Our oldest boy is 9. He’s growing up too fast. They all are, but I think I notice it most with him, because every stage is new. He’s very tender-hearted and hates to see anyone hurting. He’s also probably the most like me, with his flair for the dramatic, and his tendency to get stressed about the little things. We’re working on that–both him and me!
Our next boy is 7. He has a sweet spirit, and always want to make people happy. He’s always making me little cards and slipping them onto my lap, or under the door. He also has a quick temper–but we’re working on that, too.
Our little girl is 5, and she thinks she’s a little diva. Tell her she looks pretty, and her reply is “I know that”. And yes, we’re working on that, too! She brings the pink to our lives that we hoped for, but never thought we would have.
We live in Nova Scotia, Canada, in our little house, with our dog and cat. We’re crowded, but we’re happy. Everyday is a new adventure. We have a wonderful church family, great friends, and family close by.
I’ve named my blog “Pressing on Toward the Goal”, because that is what I’m doing. I have the ultimate goal in sight, but it’s not an easy road to get there. Of course, Jesus never told us that following Him would be easy. It’s certainly not floating on toward the goal! Pressing on–it’s what we’re doing, and I’m so glad we are!
Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already been made perfect, but I press on to take ahold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.
