I am…

I am….. a child of the Most High King.
I want….. to wake up with no pain, just one morning.
I have….. to laugh at the antics of my teenagers so I don’t scream.
I wish….. we had a maid.
I hate….. injustice.
I miss….. my kids being little.
I fear….. losing my husband.
I feel….. content with my blessed life.
I hear….. my fur baby jumping up and down in her crate.
I smell….. fresh coffee brewing.
I crave….. quiet, still moments with God.
I search….. for good books.
I wonder….. what God has in store for our lives this year.
I regret….. that I didn’t take better care of myself last year and vow to be different this year.
I love….. to curl up with a good book and a mug of hot tea.
I ache….. when I see children that don’t have families.
I care….. less and less what others think and more and more what Jesus thinks.
I always….. want to be the best wife and mom I can be.
I am not….. going to put anything, including ministry, before my relationship with God and caring for my family.
I believe….. that apart from Christ I can do nothing.
I dance…..like a white girl and never in public.
I sing….. whenever I can!
I cry….. at happy endings, out of frustration and more than I used to.
I don’t always….. take the time to inquire of God before I make a decision (I’m working on that)
I fight….. for what is right.
I write….. because I don’t know how not to.  Writing is like breathing to me.
I never…. thought I would be a Mimi at my age.
I listen….. for those sacred echoes, that God whispers in my life.
I need….. a maid.
I am happy….. for each moment God chooses to bless me with.
