Have coffee with me this morning. Or tea. Or whatever you want.
I've got a free morning! AAAAAHHHHH! And I'd like to spend it with you.
I just dropped my husband off at the airport (got up at 3:30) and I'm making a fresh pot so I can sit on the couch and come visit you. Link up at the bottom of this post! (For those of you reading via email, you'll have to come to my blog to see the list of participants and make your rounds!) I've got nothing better to do than to drop in on your blog this morning....yes, I'm excited! It's been awhile since I've made the rounds.
First, have you turned in your points for February yet?
Don't forget, you have until midnight tonight to send me your email and leave a comment on yesterday's post. Even if you're just entering for the random drawing, you'll need to do both so I know to enter you. Check out yesterday's post for the prizes as well. Thank you, Cathy Helms, for sponsoring such a fab prize!
Now, since I'm in my sweats and a nap scheduled for later this afternoon, there is no official Small Thing today. I'm sure you have a full plate of things to do without me adding a single thing to it...but let me encourage you with my favorite "mothering" verse:
Hang in there, sweet friend! God sees your work, your heart (and heartaches), your desires and your prayers. Each day He gives you grace for what is before you...wisdom to see what is important and knowledge to know what is not, and strength to do those things that He has called you to do. Take joy in knowing that no one can be the kind of mother for your children that you are - you are His gift to them. And no one can fulfill your role as helpmate, friend and lover the way you do for your man. He has chosen you and gifted you for this day, this moment, this life...and you can rest knowing that He is with you!
You are loved.
You are able.
You are beautiful.
You are His.
What is on your heart today? I hope you'll share over coffee - either by linking up or by leaving a comment. Don't forget that you can always find Home Sanctuary on Facebook, too! I'm on twitter @RachelAnneRidge and Instragram @RachelRidge.
