Without Leaving Home

Here is a day-changing (life-changing?) thought: You can make a difference with your life this very day, and that without even leaving your home.  “How?” you ask.  You have people in your home, don’t you?  There is a chance right in front of you to make your life count for something significant.  If you have children or a spouse or anyone at all, really, to share your life with in your home, you have an opportunity for meaning.

That is a thought that changes my perspective when I think about it.  I can get caught up sometimes in thinking big thoughts about all that is needed “out there” and forget about the work right here with my own children and family.  I can grow discouraged at not doing enough to impact the lives of others when the most precious others in my life are right here waiting for me to spend time teaching and loving them.

If I spend my time this day making a difference in the lives of my children, it is highly unlikely that I will live to regret it.

Do you want to make a difference with your life?  Go make a difference in the lives of your children.  Your day will be a day worth having been lived.

    I tell the ladies in my Bible study…..the world may think you’re the greatest! That means nothing if those who live with you have the opposite opinion. Anyone can be kind, gentle and loving to people in a social setting. Those we live with know who we really are. Outside of Christ, we should care most about the example we are setting before them. I think you and Alicia have done a wonderful job with your kids. They are sweet and precious.
