beautiful words...

from... a holy experience

"1. Life is not an emergency.
 2. Now is not a forever grace but amazing grace.
 3. Sometimes the slowest way is the fastest way to joy.
{Slowest=fastest to joy}
 4. Laughter is the cheapest, holiest medicine.
Preschoolers laugh 300 times a day. Aim for double that. Tickle someone, (yourself!), if necessary. This is good!
 5. Motherhood is a hallowed place because children aren’t commonplace.
Co-laboring over the sculpting of souls is a sacred vocation, a humbling privilege.
Never forget.
 6. Homemaking is about making a home, not about making perfection.
A perfect home is an authentic, creative, animated space where Peace  and Beauty are embraced.
 7. A pail with a pinhole loses as much as the pail pushed right over.
 8. Believe it: I have all I need for today.
The needs of our day are great but our God is greater and we call Him Providence because we believe: He is the One who always provides.
{And when God provides, He should be praised, and if God always provides, shouldn’t praise always be on the lips?}
 9. Slow. Children at play.
If we had to actually buy our time, would we spend it more wisely — spend it more slowly?
{God’s Word never says Hurry Up. God words only whisper: Wake Up.}
 10. Love is patient.
Parenting’s this gentle way of bending over in humility to help the scraped child up because we intimately know it takes a lifetime to learn how to walk with Him.
Love always begins with patience."
