"My motto to live by" hanging on my study wall reads: "Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming, 'WOO HOO what a ride."!
If I went on to glory this week, I would have to say I have lived up to my motto, at least, this summer. We have had guests in our home or been the guests in someone else's home at least a part of every week this summer. Some planned. Some unexpected. But all were such a blessing. A blessing because we had a home to offer and a blessing that friends and family wanted to come. Worn out? Thoroughly! Worth it? Absolutely.
In the middle of it all, though, God has been so faithful to speak clearly to me through friends and family and through His Word. This is the phrase I am meditating upon and praying daily. "God take away anything that is of me so that everything that is of you may be resurrected in me. I want desperately to be Margaret Kennedy: full of Jesus"!
What's up with you? I'd love to know.
