I tend to discount many of the activities and things that I do. Some of them are too ordinary...you know, like washing dishes, or fixing a meal. And some of them are one-of-a-kind. Some take a long time, and some are moments.
My big fault is that I see the grace and beauty on other women's blogs and I compare it to the drabness and everydayness of my own life (and blog) and I get discouraged.
So, here's what I have done this week:
Prayed with my family each evening.
Prayed with my kids each morning.
Read my Bible.
Gone to the grocery store for snack items for VCS and a sleepover.
Arranged child care for my kids while I was in surgery.
Had numerous doctors appointments.
Swift sneaky trip to fabric store.
Sewed two head-coverings.
Surgery! (Submitted to, not performed)
Took some pictures.
Wrote on blogs.
Took a nap.
Got upset at husband. Asked forgiveness later.
Took kids to library.
Lead two days of singing time at Vacation Church School.
Made recordings of songs for VCS.
Let a little boy "play" my guitar.
Made posters for songs at VCS.
Took some Pannera bread to some refugee friends of ours.
Did laundry. (Including folding it, and putting my part away!)
Mopped my kitchen floor.
Swept various other floors...
and on and on.
So why don't I think that I measure up?????
