the Lord's name is to be praised!

Hmmm...Something to Think About
This is a quote my Mom emailed me. How relevant for everyone but especially for mother's of young children.

"The great thing, if one can, is to stop regarding all the unpleasant things as interruptions of one's "own" or "real" life. The truth is, of course, that what one calls the interruptions are precisely one's real life ~ the life God is sending one day by day; what one calls one's "real" life is a phantom of one's own imagination. This is at least what I see at moments of insight, but it's hard to remember it all the time." (The letters of C.S. Lewis to Arthur Greeves ~ 20th December 1943)

What a great quote. It is so easy to be selfish with time, or just to want to be selfish even when we are busy with kids. Looking forward to pictures of my new niece or nephew soon!
