Days go by so quickly, don't they? It seems so often that I get to the end of my day, and all I feel that I have done is housework and homeschooling. While there is nothing wrong with making sure that the house is running smoothly, and the children need to be educated, some days I wonder if I should have a life long goal, something more to achieve during my lifetime.
I asked at my mothers fellowship group last week if anyone had a goal for their life, something more than just getting through each day! I was surprised that most had nothing specific they wanted to achieve. So it got me thinking.... what have I achieved? what do I want to achieve in the future?
My goals are not for fame and fortune, but at a grass roots level to see my children in heaven with me. I want to give them a sure foundation in Christ, a grounding in the bible, a depth of knowledge about the bible and its history.
I also want my to make my family the best it can be. My family is my career. When we first got married, Andrew and I decided that it would be me who would stay home with any children
God saw fit to bless us with, and I would be the primary family organizer responsible for picnics, making memories, traditions, celebrations.
I am also responsible for health and well being. I love reading and studying about organics, self sufficiency, nourishing traditions. One aim that I have for my family is for us to be as self reliant, and self sufficient as possible in these modern times. I try to make as much as I can from scratch when I cook and do baking. I love experimenting with hand creams and soaps, lip balms and herbal concoctions that I make myself.
As I am thinking about life long goals I am sure that in the future I will have more I want to get done during my life time. But I hope that I always keep in mind that I am simply a traveller here on earth, my real home is in heaven and one day I hope to hear "Well done, good and faithful servant" from God.
