Today has been one of those days. One of those days when your precious little one hears your request and looks you straight in the face and disobeys... and the baby didn't sleep much last night.. and then there is this nagging cold.. and then I remember. Choose this day whom you will serve. Choose. For the last couple of weeks my littles and I have spent a few moments in the morning talking about choosing. "But if serving the LORD seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the LORD.” Joshua 24:15 When days get to going the way this one has I find it is I that needs the reminder more than they do. I encourage Moses and Sarah to STOP before they act and think. Are we using our words, our hands, our actions to bless? Are we choosing to serve the Good Kingdom? Are our actions grace filled? I pray the answer is yes. By Gods grace he enables us, allows us, to choose His way. The best way.
I will be joining Ruth over at in "Grace Laced Mondays". I'm looking forward to being intentional about finding grace in the everyday. Won't you join us?

Great way of looking at what I have come to think of as a "day that went wrong." My toddler's been doing the opposite of everything I tell her these days, so I can understand how you feel! Sometimes we just need simple reminders to keep us on track!

It is a matter of choice indeed. I chose miserably this past weekend, and so many times allowed the mayhem and chaos of mothering 5 to steal my joy and excuse my impatience. It wouldn't be a choice if it came naturally... love you. ;)
