I wrote about my Top Ten Books to Read in 2011 a few weeks back and I thought this week would be a great time to share some of my thoughts on the books I have read and am reading right now.
Yesterday was One Thousand Gifts.
And it’s all based around this AMAZING quote from the lovely Mrs. Sally Clarkson…
“As it is, after eighteen years of learning the truth of living sacrificially, I have found that embracing God’s call to motherhood once and for all has brought me great peace. Instead of seeing fusses and messes as irritations in my day, for instance, I am more likely to see them as opportunities to train my children to be peacemakers and to learn to be responsible for their own messes. Instead of resenting the interruptions in my schedule, I am more likely to accept them as divine appointments. More and more, I have learned to see my children through the eyes of God and to accept the stages of growth through which he has designed them to grow.”
