Today I am linking to a post on another blog. It is a letter that a wife & mother sent to the Pearls asking for some guidance and wisdom. Now, I understand all of the controversy surrounding the Pearls, and I myself do not subscribe to all that they say. But I do find that if I sort through the things they say, I can come away with some encouragement and a reminder to keep my priorities on God and my family. As for the things that we do not see eye to eye on ~ it does not hurt my feelings to agree to disagree.
I know for myself, my church has so many opportunities for women to help out with many different things. And I have found that I have to purposely and continously pull myself back from it all lest it become overwhelming. I have friends at my church who do not really understand why I do that. But if I agreed to participate in everything, as many of them choose to do, I would have no time with my family. For some of them, it works out fine. They tackle the service opportunities as a family thus losing no family time in the process. But with my daughter's health issues and my husband not attending with me, my family would certainly pay a price. This post contains very timely reminders ~ certainly for myself ~ and perhaps for someone reading here as well. Enjoy ~~~
