Last night I received a text from Sophie's youth leader asking for my thoughts (to be used in her lesson today) on how I create a home centered around Jesus Christ.
I'm not going to lie...for a minute I sat there thinking: good question.
I appreciated the chance to formulate a response, to think more clearly on ideas which are part of my daily navigation but not always consciously mapped out. It was a good exercise for me, as someone who tends to exist in a nebulous state. Whether you share my tendency or if you get stuck defining your game plan for some other reason, perhaps this can help you think more consciously on what you're trying to accomplish in your life, your home, your various roles and relationships.
It's good to articulate such things from time to time.
If you were to ask my girls now, or years from now, for their greatest impression of the feelings which exist in our home, I hope they'd be able to say it's one of love.
