intentional (jeremy)

Saturday, October 8, 2016


Today intentional living looked like this.
Taking a 4 mile walk with my second born child.
Talking about life. Friends. Politics. Future. Jesus. Fears. Frustrations. Joys.
While we swung on the swings at his school I learned about his routine.
What he and his friends talk about and what they do at recess.
I experienced a little piece of him and his reality going to public school.
I was encouraged to know that he could name his friends who loved Jesus.
He could tell me where they went to church.
He could also tell me horrible jokes.

Today was a precious reminder as to how to live with intention with my children. I could have gone to the gym, ran my 4 miles and been done so much quicker, but I would have lost this precious moment and cherished memory. He encouraged me. He showed me that I am actually doing something right. He reminded me as to how much I love being a mom. His mom. 
Thank you Jeremy for being absolutely the greatest blessing to me today.

  1. So good. my girls are now 20 and 17 and I treasure any intentional moments with them. My times in the car are my favorites even though those are few and far between.

    1. Oh Kirstin. Thank you for sharing that... seriously. My littles are 14, 12, 9, 7, 18 mo (adoption... not home yet). sometimes I feel like I keep missing those opportunities with my 14 year old and that all hope is lost. It is so hard to love on and parent our kiddos in a connective way. I try so hard to reach all of them each day. I feel like I fail repeatedly and that I am ruining their little lives. sigh.
