Zan Tyler, in all her cute-ness, said something that weekend that I think of constantly...probably because I fail in this area numerous times a day.
We are moms and we are busy. We have a calling to make our children a priority. Some of us are also called to other things. For me, blogging, parade, CWA, Mom Heart, etc. But we must put first thing's first.
He had in His right hand seven stars, our of His mouth went a sharp two-edged sword, and His countenance was like the sun shining in its strength. And when I saw Him, I fell at His feet as dead. But He laid His right hand on me, saying to me, "Do not be afraid; I am the First and the Last." ~Revelation 1:16-17 (emphasis mine)Did you see that? He had stars in His right hand and then He put His right hand on His child. It doesn't say that He set down the stars, but He must have...unless Jesus has TWO right hands.
I just thought this was a beautiful picture and applicable since I can often get "too busy" for my children. Actually this is a genuine and difficult struggle for me. Let it not be so. I must set down my stars to do the greater work of loving my children and my husband.
