Learning.



God has given me a renewed love of homemaking.

Not sure what's going on, but it's all I think about! Everything from starting to cook from scratch more, homeschooling, organizing, serving my husband, mothering my children-these things are becoming more of a passion than a duty.

Now, I totally know what you're thinking- "Umm duh Dominique. Homemaking is just freaking awesome. You're sooo late on that bandwagon."

And yes. You might actually be right.

The thing is, life was getting mundane and boring. To the point that I was daydreaming of a life that wasn't my own.

Not good.

This is how the enemy weasels his way into our minds and gets us off the path God has laid before us. We start looking at the color of the grass.

Well, I've decided to start watering mine, and tending to it the way it deserves to be taken care of.

No joke, I am getting goosebumps just writing this post. The past few days have been so great in the house. I just feel...

HAPPY.

I am reading Proverbs 31 DAILY to remind me who I am, and who I long to be in Jesus. I am working on, "...she rises while it is still night."  This makes complete sense. My day goes out the window when I wake up with the kids. I NEED my Jesus time. I NEED the time to do my ViSalus business without having a screaming child under me. I NEED to get myself together, alone.

I've also been working on getting my house in order and loving it even though I don't want to. Don't get me wrong, I am FAR from being ungrateful for this roof over my head-I just wish I could have a better location. 

Living in the sticks ain't fun.

Today was the first time this house felt like "home". I am enjoying being within these four walls more and more each day, and I love the feeling.
