I was reading through The Shine Project blog (you need to go read it; Ashley is, to say the least, inspiring) and came across an "If You Looked" post. That sounded fun. So here I go...
If you looked into our living room, you'd see two new built-in bookshelves, little white Christmas lights, a mess in the corner where I craft and make things, two doggies in their beds fast asleep, Phil in his jammies reading about coaching baseball for kids (he wants to do that next season), and a coffee table --somewhere-- under a Cameo machine, coffee cups, Philly's church hat, a candle, a tablet, and a removed smoke alarm (because I cooked tonight, and I yanked it off the wall in frustration:).
If you looked into my bedroom, you'd see two rascals asleep in my bed. They ended up there tonight...but it is okay with me. I kinda love their snuggles.
If you looked into my purse, you'd faint. It is a nightmare.
If you looked into my oven, you'd see a couple dirty dishes I threw in there to hide until the morning. Because we were all ready to watch a new series on the Discovery Channel...and I'd rather learn about bison and jumping spiders than wash dirty dishes. I choose education over cleaning. Always:).
If you looked into my drawing tablet, you'd find summer-inspired characters, a ton of scribbles, and a few jotted down notes.
If you looked into our dvd player, you'd either find a Seinfeld, Office, or Ransomed Heart DVD.
If you looked into our calendar, you would see a golf date with Phil tomorrow morning; softball and baseball games on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday nights; church group on Wednesday; swimming lessons on Thursday (late evening); and hopefully a movie date with the kids on Friday afternoon. It is a busy week coming up!
If you looked into my heart, you would see change. Moment to moment leaning into Christ. Believing, trusting, and hoping in Him. Moving in a direction of calling and service, even if I am still unsure of what it will be. My heart is fully and completely in love with my Savior.
What would a peek into your life look like right now?
