I am a terrible blogger...

Life is busy, and there are some things that just have to be lower on the priority list. For me, blogging is one of those things. Between being a wife and mommy, working full time plus other ministries I am involved in, I end up with little time to blog.

I have found myself going back and forth between wanting more and extreme gratefulness. It is summer...people are going on vacations, stay-at-home mommies are with their children all of the time, etc... And I admit, I am struggling with envy. I wish I didn't have to work, but I choose to work so my son can go to a Christian school...and a great one at that.

But on the other hand, I have been asking God to help me battle envy, and I find myself filled with extreme gratefulness. I have a soft bed to sleep on, a roof over my head, food, clothing, family, health. I am a spoiled American Christian. We have so much, and sometimes we forget that because we are too busy chasing after the newest gadget or buying the perfect house...or keeping up with the people around us.

Yet Scripture very clearly tells us to lay up our treasure in Heaven. So I guess I am taking a little personal inventory of how much I am actually laying up in Heaven instead of worrying about what I don't have here on earth.

God has entrusted me with many things...and to whom much is given, much is required. I want to be found faithful at the end. I just need an attitude check now and then.
