Just Breath....

I have been away a long, long time. I have to say life is just getting too busy to take a minute to blog about it. Currently we are in the throws of Girl-Scout-a-palooza 2010. Now that both girls are official enrollees and I am in the process of becoming a leader it seems like all we do is school and scouts. Somewhere in there we also manage to eat and pick up a few things from the floor to keep it from swallowing us.

I keep reminding myself that Scouts are an activity NOT who we are but the organization itself is so busy and full that it quickly swallows up real life. I am working to find a balance in there some place. I don't know WHAT I was thinking when I agreed to be a leader too. WHY??

I am so glad that the Lord has gently prompted me to not allow it to become bigger than Him. Do not allow the memory work and the crafts to replace the more important memory work and the special times we take worshiping in our own ways. This is harder than one would think when there is just so much activity to be attended. I am working, often failing, but still reminded to keep First Love first.

By His Grace....
