Good Morning Ladies-

I hope you have had a wonderful week, and that you have found time to play on a playground, to sit together on a cool porch or have just taken a relaxing walk.  After some really hot and muggy days of this past summer, these cool mornings are so refreshing.

I have thought of you all so often these past few weeks.  It is amazing how many young moms I have followed in the grocery store, and how many little pictures God has given me of the chaotic, exhausting, all consuming and magic season most of you are in.  

Be sure you plan ahead to join us next week in the barn for our monthly meeting- and since some of you Type A girls have asked, we will talk about our homes, “How to Find Holy in the Daily Grind.”  If you want to, read through Chapter 4 in The Most Important Place on Earth.  We will use that book and several others as we discuss the spirit behind and the practical sense of finding the Holy even in our chaos.  Plus our own Cindy Hamilton will share some wonderful ideas for “Fall Fun” and great ways to include neighborhood kids into your homes.  And as always our Hospitality team will feed us well, I have seen the menu; you won’t want to be late! 

Have a WONDERFUL week, remember, you have the most important job on this earth…. we care so much about you and what you are doing in your home!

Hi Ladies-

Many of you have been asking about the Erma Bombeck “bead” quote:

Erma Bombeck likens the experience of motherhood to stringing beads. We go about our daily routine, stringing one brightly colored wooden knob after another, feeling pretty proud of ourselves.  We assume we are accomplishing so much.  But the illusion of productivity is shattered when, at the endof the day, we look down at our necklace only to discover that there is no knot.   The once strung beads are now scattered all over the place, and we have to start all over.

 

 

  quick note from Lindy and the MOMS TOGETHER team…

Good Morning Precious Mom-

I hope your week has been great so far, and that you have reflected a few times on our Moms Together time together last week. Most importantly, I hope you have believed that you have chosen “The Most Important Job in the World,” and that you are trusting yourself to be creating “the Most Important Place on Earth” for your family.

As we said in Moms Together- God highly values what you are doing for Him- in raising your children to love Him- in caring for your family and encouraging your husband–and God’s desire is to honor you and guide you through your days. “Stringing Beads” All you must do is ask Him.

Remember, it is impossible to bring holiness into your family’s lives until you embrace your own value .

WHO you are is the question: WHAT YOU DO is not the answer.

Look up these scriptures- write them on index cards and review them each day. Stick a copy on your mirror, next to the kitchen sink or in your car visor. Pouring into your own faith will make you a stronger wife and mom for those you love.

Remember each day that we are praying for you , we are cheering for you, too- and we are honored as we join God in believing in you .
