Just a thought...

I heard a cool statement the other day and wrote it on the mirror in our dining room. You can't go out the front door without seeing it (which is dreadful right now..seeing my bulging prego belly sooo frequently, lol!). I tend to use this mirror for chores and reminders, but I couldn't pass up this opportunity to reach my children...and myself.

"People see what you do...God sees why you do it"

Makes you stop and think, huh? Why do we do the things we do...especially the "nice" or "thoughtful" things we do?? Are we doing it to truly bless someone, or to say "look at me"? I am trying to remember that what I do has a purpose and/or a consequence. What do I want God to see? others? What does it say about who I want to be?
My hope is to be a good friend, an inspirational teacher in my classes....and a wife and mother that makes sure my children and husband never go a day without knowing how much I love them.
