Busy Summer

This summer has been so incredibly busy. Along with having my 3 girls home I am watching 4 other girls! AHHHH Want their ages? 3,4,6,7,8,10,10! (bold are mine) We have been going to the splash pad, library, free movie every Wednesday, VBS, park etc... It has truly been a test of my patience. I have spent more time in prayer though, which is never a bad thing. I have been slacking on my Bible reading though, as well as any reading altogether. I also have been "slacking" on church. We were going whenever the doors were open Wed, Sun am/pm and a weekly Bible study at my house. Is it just because it's the summer or is it a "phase?" Oh I wish I knew... I actually miss it... I love Church, I love fellowship and I love learning more about God.

There were so many things I wanted to accomplish this summer and honestly NONE have been accomplished yet... Remember my list of my flaws? Well obviously they are still my flaws...weaknesses...whatever you want to call them.

Things are changing all around me... The girls are getting bigger and smarter and more perceptive. The old saying "do as I say, not as I do" can no longer apply in my house. Honestly though it should NEVER have applied. Oh I'm just a work in progress I suppose. The girls are learning 2 bible verses a week for church this summer and WOW I need to take a lesson from them. Proverbs 22:6 I have read, memorized and pondered and here it is finally sinking in that I need to "shape-up." The other old saying "more is caught, than taught" ha ha yup SO TRUE! I won't even go there why I saying all this. :)
