As I sat there listening to him, I felt stirred up inside, that I'd like to make a change also. How exciting it'd be to reach people and see God at work, transforming lives. But I'm a Mom of 3 young kids, I can't go fly off to some foreign country at this very moment so, where do I start?
I'm reminded of one time when I was laying back in a dental chair. As my dentist, a beautiful Mother of 4 children was working away on my teeth, she was sharing with her assistant that right now her mission field is in her home, with her kids. She didn't know I was listening, but those words have stuck with me for years.
Why is it that sometimes, this doesn't feel like it's enough? At first glance, it doesn't seem very exciting, adventurous or maybe not very important, but isn't it a perfect place to start and so very important?
As I head into this new week, I'm thankful for fresh days, for endless opportunities and for a mission field of my very own, right here in my home. I may not know all the answers and most days I feel totally inadequate, but He didn't call us to be perfect, He called us to just show up and ask for His help. So, let's show up tomorrow and make it a great week!
A few scenes from the weekend.
//Pumpkin Pie making. Our first time making one from a "real" pumpkin, sans canned pumpkin. Oh my, totally yum and so worth the extra work.
