This little LIGHT of mine

Today’s devotion made me think:

Your life either sheds light or casts a shadow.

I do hope I’m influencing other to love the Lord. I’d hate to think I’m influencing them to give up their faith.

As a single person I use to hear parents say, what they didn’t let their kids watch or hear. I use to think it was strange. It didn’t matter. Oh how my mind has changed once I became a mother.

Yes I’m addicted to t.v. and yes I watch Nip and Tuck but you better believe its after my children are tucked in bed. As sexy as I think Christian is, he is not for those eyes.

I want my kids to stay kids as long as they can. I remember being eager to grow up. I tell them and other kids its no piece of cake being GROWN. I would love for my mother to take care of me and I not have to worry about bills.

Being married to a non-Christian, I pray that my light shines for him. I’m sure he looks at me to see what I will do wrong and will I be Christian like. Yes its easy to turn off the light and not let it shine. I choose the hard path because I know where it will lead.

My light is on and it shining brightly for those who need to come out of the darkness. I pray my light influences others to seek out the Lord.

That must be so tough when you're husband isn't a believer. I'll be praying for him and for you.

Thanks Camy,

We need all the prayer we can get.

Marriage is hard work even more when you're married to unbeliever. Now I understand why my pastor was against the marriage. He said he was looking into the future.

I love my husband with all my heart, but I wouldn't recommend marry someone who doesn't share your faith. You miss out on so much. Things I never thought about when I decided to say I do. I thought it would be OK.

Next year will be ten years. It has its ups and downs. Would I do it again, YEAH :)
