seek first

guess who is feeling a little better?
paige grabbed this shot while i was holding sofia...i edited it and i just don't think i've seen anything more pure and sweet today than this.

and in the midst of a totally chaotic week with hubs in france, looking at this:
{and i mean, literally...this is the view from his hotel entrance. yes, it's paris...and yes, that really is the eiffel tower.}

...and then there's me here, looking at this...way too much of this, btw:
it's nice to take time to remember the amazing blessings that god has given me, in spite of my anxiety and shortfalls. i need to remember, FIRST THINGS FIRST...matthew 6:33, baby!

"seek first the kindgom of GOD and HIS righteousness and all these things will be given to you."

not the kingdom of ME or the kingdom of WANT or the kingdom of MY KIDS. the kingdom of GOD. and once i seek that with my whole heart, man, then i look to his righteousness and it's all there. that is some good stuff, my friend. good stuff.

{please pray for my friend, rebecca's daughter, joy. she's in brain surgery right now where they are removing part of her diseased brain.}
