Something to think about/changes in my life

I was just over at Sinner Saved and read THIS article that I think is really worth checking out. It has to do with the kind of language we use.It brought to mind an article I once read on Christian Homekeeper. She was talking about why it`s important that we as Christians dress nicely.We are ambassador`s for Christ. Everything we do and say represents to the world who He is. This should be our motivation to clean our homes, look nice, speak nicely,be well mannered, not what others might think of us, but what others will think about Christianity.Our lives need to be a testimony. This way of thinking has greatly helped me really get to the root of why I am having difficulty with organization, and keeping my home neat and such. The motives behind everything have been to serve man and what people will think of me if say they come over and see a mess. I think we need to sit back and ask ourselves what motivates our hearts. Are we afraid of what others will think of us or are we concerned with the image of Christ that we are portraying to others? Just something to think about and I felt lead to share this with all of you today! I hope I`ve been helpful!!
Now onto the second part of my post. I`m not sure if I mentioned that I would be looking for a job in the fall. Well the season has come, and I have an interview on Monday.Please pray for me. I`m not completely sold on the idea of going back to work. Titus 2 says we need to be keepers of the home,and that is what I thought God`s roll for me was. I`ve been praying about it. This is what my husband wants right now as well. He just feels alot of pressure on him right now because he cannot work,so this will be a huge blessing for him. I also got a state ID card today. I hadn`t had mine renewed for a long time.I registered to vote as well for the first time ever. I truly never had any kind of interest at all in politics before,but this will be ther first presidential election since I got saved, and I feel the need to vote this time around. I`m pretty excited about that!! so, alot of changes taking place in our home.
Well, I do need to get going now as the kids will be home from school soon!! Blessings and I hope everyone has a beautiful day!!!

Hi Toni,

I have been to and through NE PA a zillion times and I have seens tons of bittersweet along 81 and 84. DH worked near Scranton on a project and I picked a ton of it near the Archibald power plant. Friends live in Slatington and we get it there too! When it turns more yellow, I'll take more pics so keep checking back!

Hi, Toni! I know the Lord will be guiding you each step of the way. The struggle of the heart in matters to work or to stay at home is so hard! I'll be praying that the Lord will give you peace, lead you in HIS direction and meet all of your needs as He sees best! He won't fail you! I've found that out for myself!!!!!

I hope by now you do see that it is bittersweet! Good luck with the job interview as well. I had always planned on being strictly a SAHM but when an oppotunity came to work part time in a preschool (mother's hours!!) came up, I took it and now I know the Lord led me there and I know I was able to help our family and hundreds of others at the same time. I hope you find that turns out to be that way fro you as well!
