There is always something else to do around here. I’ve even said to my kids, “I will play with you once the morning stuff is done.” Morning stuff as in clean up breakfast, make the beds, etc. Will this “stuff” ever end? I think this “stuff” is actually getting in the way of the things we long for in our home. Things like love, fun, giggles. Could the “love of money” be taking root in my heart as I struggle with all this “stuff?” Today I will fix my eyes on “Jesus, the author and perfecter of my faith (Hebrews 12:2).” I’ll clean and cook, but I’ll also read and snuggle. Because He was perfect for me, I don’t have to be perfect. The “stuff” will get done…it always does. But little smiles and kisses, they won’t be here forever.
