Awww, Mindy is SO cute!
I just love how you've drawn this parallel. Our culture is so busy that I think many moms equate success with busyness, godliness with running around and doing stuff all the time. Not saying it's not, but I guess it just seems to me that so many moms are stressed because they run around all the time and never just sit and be loved by God.
Awesome post!

I love your Mindy! What a sweetie. This is such an awesome and important truth to grasp. We cannot EARN God's favor and grace...I think it is so important to understand this DEEP within our spirits...it frees you, it empowers you...and most don't know how to FEEL God's love...But as one grows and learns more and more with life and wisdom and of the scriptures, at least it has been that way with me...I have been so freed from guilt and a sense that God might not be pleased with me...BUT He rejoices over us with singing...Wonderful post today sweet sister! Simply wonderful!

I crave my silent time with the Lord! Great example given with Mindy. We have a few pets but 1 kitty is extra special. I can just sit and be.

It is so peaceful.

Sidenote: You are beautiful and have a wonderful presense that is calming. May you continue to be blessed.
