I can't believe it's been a week since I blogged. So many things were going on last week that I just didn't have a chance. And truthfully, with losing my Mamaw and most of our chickens, I didn't have the heart.
My oldest daughter said something to me yesterday that, quite honestly, might have changed my life. We were talking about spiritual things yesterday morning, and she said to me, "Mom, I'm really growing in the Lord, and some things just aren't good enough anymore." I just stared at her, speechless. Throughout the day, I thought about that statement about a hundred times. The thing is I, too, am growing in the Lord, and I've found so many things aren't good enough anymore. But the problem is, I've continued to let them be part of my life. My 11 year old is confident enough to put those things that aren't good enough out of her life. Aren't we supposed to be a great example for our kids? Instead she has proven to be a great example to me. Last night I was thinking about how happy God must be right now.
just aren't good enough anymore.
He must increase; I must decrease. John 3:30
