In the Eye of the Beholder

Today's word is Perspective....I am thinking I could definitely write a book on this word alone, but I am going to try and restrain myself to 5 minutes. 
I am lonely.
Two and four year old conversation from 7am to 4pm doesn't fulfill my need as an adult striving to connect to other adults. It's been a year and I still don't have a friend here...

my hubby is my a wonderful friend and distance hasn't kept three friends from listening to my ramblings on the phone or through a text. Viviane, whom I've known for 24 years, Heather and Andrea all find ways to connect, sometimes even  through visits.  They all pray for me. I feel loved by them all.

We aren't even middle class these days. We used to be. We have had a ton of help just to make it this past year.  We made a choice for me to be home with my sons and so less money is pouring in...

We are not hungry, we can pay our bills, God has blessed us with just enough. Really. I find myself needing and wanting less. The possessions I want to hold onto are breathing, real, and full of memories. My priorities are adjusting and moving to their rightful places. 

Staying home with my children is not only great for them, but it has changed my life. I feel so lucky to do this again this next fall. If I had worked I wouldn't have attended MOPS (Mothers Of Preschoolers) and made a connection that was the Lord's purpose for me ALL along.

My time is up and I am going over a minute now, but let me just say that if you see life through God's eyes, your perspective will change.

The Lord asked me to be the Coordinator for MOPS this coming fall...never saw that from my limited view, but I am honored to be a part of that great ministry AND...
Bet I will make a friend there!


  1. I think what I've learned from reading everyone's post today is that it all comes back to this: sometimes we simply need a {change} of perspective. That's it.

    I love your perspective, even when things are hard.

  2. In His time, He fulfills all our needs, even friendship.

  3. So funny you would blog about MOPS as I just contacted our MOPS coordinator here in our new town this week. I have always been a part of MOPS since my first born and it's amazing the friendships I have made over the last 13 years!!!!

  4. "The possessions I want to hold onto are breathing, real, and full of memories." This is so precious. No physical possession can compare! Your post was encouraging to read.


Share your thoughts with me. I would love to hear from you.
