I am feeling defeated today. Defeated by the dishes, laundry, toys all over, piles needing to be gone through, and lack of feeling like I can accomplish finishing any of it. More so, it is the fact that I may finish something but it just starts back up again. I know this is life and some days are just harder to do the daily stuff than others. I want to sit back and read a book and do nothing else-for the whole day. Today this is the way I feel.
The good thing is that I know what is the TRUTH. It is not my feelings that define me but the truth of knowing God loves me no matter how I feel about things. He reminds me that I love my life. I am incredibly blessed with a hard working, loving, supportive husband, 5 wonderful children, a home that I love(most of the time), the laundry which makes me grateful we have good clothes, the dishes that are created because of full plates of food, and piles that mean we live here.
How can I not be reminded of this truth when I have this precious face to look into while she points to my seat and says "mama" because she wants me to have lunch with her. They make all the 'stuff' worth it.
Phillipians 4:8 Christian brothers, keep your minds thinking about whatever is true, whatever is respected, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever can be loved, and whatever is well thought of. If there is anything good and worth giving thanks for think about these things.
