Planting Seeds and Throwing Rocks

I go back n forth between wanting a more regimented lifestyle (set rhythm to my week) and realizing that it’s very difficult with 2 kids and a ‘I have no idea what’s going to happen today’ job.  But one thing that is set in stone for me – every day, many times even – is that I will have to take care of my kids.  I will have to pour the milk, cut the banana, change the diaper, give the morning hug, make the toast, remind her to pick up her dirty clothes, etc, etc, etc.  Maybe those could be ‘spiritual disciplines’ or my daily ‘liturgy’ or ‘hourly prayers.’  ?  Of course they are.  Maybe feeding your dog, washing your dishes, making your bed or whatever you do that seems so mundane or even annoying can turn into brief reminders that point your attention to Jesus – the one who told us to offer simple cups of water, pick up towels, and plant little tiny seeds.

good thoughts- is this a new blog? I’m also blogging now- just mostly what’s going on with our kids so I won’t forget the funny, crazy things they say and do.
