Today finds me busy, and motivated to get going and get moving! :) Today we completed our schoolwork (Evan did fabulous--was hesitant since his First Grade work is getting more challenging, but he did it!). We sang the vowel song along to the tune of London Bridge, revisited our Proverb for the week which I will talk about in a minute, did fun things with the number of the day, which is 10, took a nice walk out in God's Creation and picked wildlflowers, etc.
In between all of that, we managed to clean the bathrooms (Evan scrubbed toilets), unload and reload the dishwasher, water the plants (we have about 100 of them!), vacuumed and swept floors.
But enough of that boring old stuff and onto God's Word.
Our Proverb is from Chapter 10 verse 5, and it says: He that gathereth in the summer is a wise son: but he that sleepeth in harvest is a son that causeth shame.
This verse has been one that both Evan and I have needed. My motivation level, and the things that I accomplish in the day to day has been sadly diminished in the past almost two years. Grief and fatigue overtakes my mind at times, and I simply do not want to do anything. But I am finding as I meditate on God's Word that I am called to be productive. God gave me the many blessings that I see, touch, smell, etc. on a daily basis. If I neglect them, am I taking good care of what God has blessed me with? No, I am not. Therefore, I must heed God's instruction in His Word, and the book of Proverbs is a lovely place to gain so much insight into how He created us to be.
In closing up this blog post for Tuesday, I pray that each of you will find your groove if you have lost it. We all tend to loose our groove in the midst of just plain and simple life. We live in a world that is over-stimulating with the internet, and all of the things it entails with Facebook, email, blogging, etc. I am purposing to getting back to basics, just as I felt the Lord calling me to do the past few months. Won't you join me? I am praying right now that all who read this will be filled with His love and fullness!
