Today's theme

Don't get in your own way. Or stay out of your way Came up 3 different times today so I think that means I should listen up.

Most days I'm grateful we only live 2 minutes away from our church. It makes it convenient when we're always running late on Sunday mornings, the kids can participate in extra stuff that we'd talk ourselves out of going to if it was a 20 to 30 minute drive, and I like that the girls we see it every day - it's there in our community.

But last night I wanted more time. Wednesday nights the girls are in a programs called "Celebration Kids". snacks, singing and Jesus - and they love it. Madeline was sick so I only needed to pick up Amelia. We have a CD in the car of the songs they're learning from their next program and hearing Amelia belt out Altar of our Praise at the top of her lungs moved the Holy Spirit in me and brought me to tears. My 6-year-old loves, knows, prays and talks to Jesus more than a lot people. She reminds us to pray, she tells us how God made whatever bug she's holding, she tells us the worm is beautiful because God made it. She amazes me. I didn't want it to end, I wanted more than 2 minutes - I wanted a 40 minute drive home with that song on repeat and never even taken a second to blink.

Of all the things I do as a mother and feel I'm failing - none of those matter when I see and hear my kids give glory to God. Because nothing else matters as long as they have Him. Here's the song!
