I am working on a bible study through this Lenten season. It is my first bible study and I am really enjoying it. There are a group of 18 of us or so, going through this journey together.
Well I plan the posts for the day in our Facebook group. I try to pull the important parts of the few pages for that specific day and create a graphic to go with hit.
Well, I worked on 2 days worth of posts today because I was behind. The posts that will get posted to our group tomorrow are about a Hidden Treasure. It really spoke to me though and I knew I needed to use it as a spring board for my post today.
“Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”
I have been really struggling with what I should be doing, where, when and with whom. These questions have been on my mind, in my heart and at the core of most conversations that I have had since the beginning of the year.
I know what my treasure in this life is and most of the trouble is, that is exactly where my heart is. For good or for bad, my heart is with my children, all day every day. I am just working to find the treasure and my heart in more than just that.
Thank you God for bringing your beautiful stories to me. For reminding me of what is right in front of me and just how lucky I am truly am.
Through a conversation about going to far, I was able to have a beautiful conversation with one of my step-sons this weekend. Even though, I have been in their lives for 6 1/2 years, I know that sometimes the kids still think that we play favorites. That we do “his” and “her” kids.
I told him that isn’t how it works. That even though, that might be how his brain perceives it, I love each and every one of my 6 kids the same. After 6 1/2 years, it is impossible not to. I have seen them through so much, watched them all in sports, taken them through many holidays, homework assignments, troubles with friends…etc etc.
They are all my treasure, they are all my heart. Not just the 3 that I carried myself. They were all brought to me because God wanted them to be my children. By blood or by marriage, doesn’t matter one little bit. Not to me, maybe it did for a short time when we were just combining when we were just getting to know each other. After 6 1/2 years though…we are together!
Where my treasure is, there my heart will be too.
