Scrapbooking.... and more~

The last week I have really focused on scrap book. I am so far behind. Some friends shared that they have the pictures separated into the pages they want to do and it goes a lot faster. That has worked for me too. I haven't journaled on my pages or added *accessories* yet but I am really accomplishing a lot. I am thrilled. I love scrap booking but have felt very overwhelmed with how far behind I was. I am still far behind but not as much.

I love reading several blogs and I am often blessed by what I read. This has happened again and again. A Wise Woman's blog really spoke to my heart again and I know it will you. So often I fall into the trap of letting other things (outside things, computer... etc) steal my time at home, with my family and my husband. I have enjoyed spending more time at home... with them, cooking each night and just enjoying our time together. I love walking out side, swimming, watching them swim, reading to them, giving lots of hugs.... sitting around the table as a family at night and sharing.

I hope this blesses you as much as it did me~

here is a snippet.... from her blog~

As Christian mothers, we need to be careful to manage our time well and decide whether or not our time is being used wisely. Many 'good' things can steal away our 'best' from those we love the most if we are not shrewd in our evaluation of this precious commodity.

May the JOY of the Lord be yours~
also... if you didn't read the post on Sunflowers below just a reminder to atleast look at the pics~they are not mine but they are beautiful.

  1. That's a wonderful quote. The years with our children go by so swiftly. It is a wise thing to make the most of those precious moments.
