Slow Fade & Reclaiming


This song weighs on my heart every time I hear it. It was the most appropriate song to be in the movie"Fireproof". "Giving your self away" - left in your own interpretation can mean just devoting your time to something that is counter productive to the life you should be leading. "Families never crumble in a day" gosh! That's right...it's a constant fight to keep our life's priorities straight. So, I'm waking up each morning in prayer for strength and understanding so that I can be the mom and wife my family needs.
The kids and I have been sick all week. That has been a struggle for me. It's hard to be everything to my family when I'm not feeling well, taking care of those sick and those not...and then my house has suffered from neglect. Today I am reclaiming my house! We are feeling 70% well and have got to keep moving. The kitchen has been started, laundry going, floors being picked up and I'll thro something in the crock pot for dinner.

keeping myself accountable: the big day of housework didn't get done...adam felt worse and needed mommy.

I can relate in so many ways, I really dont feel like doing much, but I know I've got to push through and press on...its so hard, but I always try to remind myself of that silver lining! Im really looking forward to seeing that movie, Ive heard so much about it! Hope you all get to feeling 100% soon!!

Love this song as well. It is so true. Marriages do not turn into divorces over night. We have to constantly work at them, and I don't mean like a job, but an investment in out future and our children's future. Great video!
