I'm in need of it.
It all started with a commercial I saw on t.v. and I felt uncomfortable watching it. (and no it wasn't a Victoria Secret commercial either)
I started to wonder how to raise my children in today's world. It's a very unsettling feeling. How do I raise them to love Jesus with all their heart and not give into the world's view, yet still love everyone in the world?
I actually had a bit of anxiety about it, asking God to help direct me in the way he would want me to, to help give me some answers that I'm seeking, as I struggle with these thoughts.
Am I alone in this feeling? I'm not sure what to think/believe about certain situations/ideas that the world is telling us.
I hate to have a "downer" type blog post, but it has been pressing on my heart and I just wanted to let it out and maybe get some Insight from others.
On a lighter note:
Mother's Day was great, and unfortunately I got zero pictures of the day, which is a shame since I was looking cute that day (good hair day) and so was Molly. I got some flowers from the Hubs, 2 blu-rays and 1 DVD. I got a Starbucks card from my Mother-in-law, which was a nice surprise (since I'm not her mother!). The gifts to my Mom & Mother-in-law were a big hit and I was happy to see them happy, which is one of the reasons I LOVE giving gifts! I get so excited for the person that I want them to open their gift now!
Yesterday was a great day and we rollerbladed for 2 miles and the kids loved it (we push them in strollers as we rollerblade). I was still extremely sore from Saturday (I ran/walked 4 miles!) but today I feel so much better, maybe my muscles needed to get moving again after a day break! I hope to get back on the work out wagon again, having it become a habit, as I have some weight to lose before our big vacation. It's hard to make it a habit, when it has never been one in my life. I've been active outside playing when I was a kid, but never actually had a work out routine, probably because my mom never did and she didn't need to! Anyway, it felt good last night and I want to remember the feel good feeling I get after I work out, instead of that dread feeling I get thinking about it.
I leave you with a quote I found on Pinterest.
I should add: And you don't crave sweets every second.
