Am I stuck in time?

I was talking this morning about how I've never had to attend a jury summons because I've always had a young child at home that exempted me from my obligation. I joked about how I've had a child under 10 in my home for a LOOONG time! Then I realized, I have!!

I am not complaining. I feel so blessed. But sometimes, I have days where I feel as though I am doing the same things over and over with little result. I know that this is not true. But some days it does "feel" like that. Thank goodness I've learned to not always go by how I feel. (Notice I said "not always". I'm far from perfect, LOL)

Cindy has a wonderful post concerning the other end of the spectrum. It really gave me pause to think about how each of us are on our own journey, and how we may each cross one another's path for a time, but ultimately, we will all meet Christ, face to face and standing by ourselves. Our spouses won't be there, our children won't be there, our best friends and family won't be there.

Am I ready to meet Him as I am today? Just me. Not what I've done, not what I want to do. Not who I do it for? Just me. Just my heart. Just my love for Him.

Karen - I joke with my husband sometimes that my life is like the movie "Groundhog Day". And as soon as I say it - I think to myself, "It's not such a bad day to be stuck on as long as my kids are with me". When they do leave the nest, I'll wish to have all of this back. This post touched my heart.

Thank you for giving me something important to ponder.
