Wednesday Wish List and Happy Two Weeks!

I can’t believe we’ve had Peanut for 2 weeks.  Such a short time that feels so much longer because Peanut is still sick.  The slightly runny nose has turned into a full on awful head cold.

So, today’s wish is for Peanut to get better.  PLEASE.  I’m convinced that once we stop wiping her nose, face, and hair every 5 minutes the crying and whining will decrease like 80%.  It is hard to say how much is grief and how much is just that she doesn’t feel well.

Oh and hopefully the sleep and eating will get better, too.

Please, please go away cold!

  1. Philippians 2:1-11
    Children are a blessing from the Lord (Ps. 127:3-5). Motherhood is a great honor and privilege, yet it is also synonymous with servanthood. Every day women are called upon to selflessly meet the needs of their families. Whether they are awake at night nursing a baby, spending their time and money on less-than-grateful teenagers, or preparing meals, moms continuously put others before themselves.
    Sometimes this constant serving can be exhausting and even discouraging—particularly for a first-time mother. But you can take real encouragement from Jesus. One of the best examples of gracious servanthood is found in John 13:3-16. By kneeling to wash His disciples’ feet, the Lord showed that the key to true leadership is humility. And it is humility that leads to eternal reward.
    Unless you are willing to stoop down and get your hands dirty, you will miss the real riches of motherhood. By dying to your own desires and pouring your life into someone else, you become like Christ and create a godly legacy that will carry on for generations to come. What greater blessing could one hope for? Of course, the motivation for serving others is not to reap benefits, but when we follow God’s plan for our life, that’s what happens.
    In giving us children, God places us in a position of both leadership and service. He calls us to give up our lives for someone else’s sake—to abandon our own desires and put our child’s interests first. Yet, according to His perfect design, it is through this selflessness that we can become truly fulfilled.

    My uncle sent this to me this week and I thought it was fitting.
