"Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we would be holy and blameless before Him. In love He predestined us to adoption as sons through Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the kind intention of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, which He freely bestowed on us in the Beloved." Ephesians 1:3-6

My Mommy Minute: June 30

Hi friends,
I hope you are being blessed and encouraged by what you read.  Spur on and fight the good fight.  Our home is a battlefield of spiritual warfare and if we don't fight for joy, everyone in our homes suffer.  But in Christ we have all we need and the joy of the Lord is our strength. 

Good Days by Nancy Wilson at Femina
"He who would love life and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips from speaking deceit.  Let him turn away from evil and do good; let him seek peace and pursue it." 1 Peter 3:10-12

On Everyday Joy by Rachel Jankovich
A short list on finding everyday joy as we live in the mundane of motherhood.

Motherhood Was Created By and For the Son of Man by Gloria Furman
"Every­thing we lack is found in him. And when we’re exhausted, when we feel the dusty earth of the Calvary road, we can remember that it’s especially then that the life of Jesus is manifested in us (2 Corinthians 4:10). It’s then that Jesus gives us more of himself, proving over and over that he is enough, that he is good, that there is more joy in him than in the grain and wine that abound (Psalm 4:7)—or in the kids who never make messes and the dinner that prepares itself and the schedules that operate seamlessly. He is better."

Never Let Her Grieve or Rejoice Alone by Jessalyn Hutto at Desiring Virtue
"We must battle our natural tendencies of isolation, self-preservation, and self-focus, instead seeking to live in the unity of spirit Christ has made possible through the cross. We must seek to rejoice with those who rejoice and weep with those who weep."
