Thankfully, my superhero hubby is a champ who hugged me, spoke truth to me and told me that laundry doesn't matter, trucks on the living room floor don't matter, fruit loops stuck to the floorboard of our car do not matter. What matters is our family's health and how we love one another. He's right you know. And what's worse is I'm studying that every single morning in 1 Corinthians 13: 1-3 which states " If I speak in the tongues[a] of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. 3 If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast,[b] but do not have love, I gain nothing".
Double Ouch. I can have the cleanest home, most organized pantry, all the laundry done and meals planned; I can serve my community and church, take a new mom a meal but if I'm not speaking kindly to my husband, if I'm short tempered, angry towards my son or even unkind to myself then none of it matters. My life is messy and I don't mean my house, I mean my heart. But I'm taking it one day at a time and with some coffee, Jesus and fierce determination I know I will be where I want to be inside and out.
I'm done pouting. I did my workout and was encouraged that in 2 weeks I have doubled my distance on the treadmill and have started running instead of just walking. Wow! I also wanted to share what I have eaten for lunch now twice this week it's so good and easy for this momma to throw together!
