One of those days...

Today was one of those days.
It is Monday.
It is the quick...cram-every-possible-thing-we-can-into-today-because-cc-is-tomorrow day.
We also had The Porch at 2:15 and then the porch dinner at 5, and FBI at 6:30.
It's a funny thing though, because these days...they are full.
But they are amazing.
The last couple of days we have had the privilege of hearing Dwight Knight speak at our church.
Honestly? I feel so sorry for you if you have missed any of them, because it's been amazing.
He speaks truth, and I am always looking for people to remind me of the truth.
The truth? This life is short. 
I literally have no clue if I will have another breath.
So. I will take today. And I will invest it in...
Whatever God tells me to invest it in.
And he has told me to invest it in people. 
A lot of times it's the people that will never thank me, that I may never see a big result of my efforts.
But isn't that the point?
I can't possibly live my life to please myself.
There is no satisfaction or fulfillment in that.

So today was one of those days.
Those days where I know that I am exactly where I am supposed to be.
Here. In little old Epping. 
I get to stay at home with my incredible boys.
I get to hang out with crazy and loud teenagers all week at the porch.
I have a husband who dreams big with me, and loves the same exact ministry that I do.
Then I have an amazing family. Church family. Friends.
Also? I get to live in this amazingly beautiful house.
God is way too good to me.
I just can't get over the way that God blesses you when you choose to put Him first.

Hope you have an awesome Monday...and remember.
Living for yourself is never really living.
Living for God is the only way to live.
End of story.
