Anyone else like to blogsurf ? My spellchecker is telling me this is not a real word--HA!
I find that when I blogsurf I'm overcome with inspiration. These Pumpkin Ice Cream Sandwiches from Martha Stewart's website inspire me! So do many other recipes, fabrics and decorating tips. But here's the thing...if I'm not careful I cross that very fine line of being inspired to being envious. Sometimes it gets to be too much and I have to get up and walk away from my computer. Does anyone else experience this? There are so many things I'd like to do--recipes I'd like to try; crafts I'd like to do with my kids; projects I'd like to sew; colors I'd like to paint my walls. That's when I know I've had enough. The last thing I need to be doing right now is painting the rooms of my house!
Why is it so easy to cross that line of "this is beautiful; I appreciate this" to "this is beautiful; I wish I had an ounce of her creativity; I wish my house looked like this." And before I know it, discontent rears its hideous head! The truth is, I love the home that God has provide for our family. I love being here! When I'm home I find myself looking around and letting out little sighs here and there because I'm overwhelmed by the blessings God pours out upon our family.
The truth is~
"My God will meet all my needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus."
and He does!
