Hats!


It occurred to me today that I wear many different kinds of "hats". Their is the wife hat, the mother hat, the teacher hat, the cook hat, the house keeper hat and the chauffeur hat, to name a few. I now find myself wearing a brand new "hat", the "full time stay-at home mom who is homeschooling her children as well as working everyday for her husband's business hat". (No wonder I am so tired!) I guess I should be very grateful for my life experiences and the "hats" I am collecting along the way. I am trying to remember this is just a season of my life and to try to enjoy the journey. I do know that when I arrive at my final destination..... I will have quite a hat collection!

Kelly, you just needed another hat to add to your collection, didn't you?? These will be some real full days for your family, but it will surely make you stronger and bind you together more deeply.

I am praying for you (all) -- His grace is sufficient for every single moment! Having been in that very position, I can say that the Lord has always been faithful when it seemed we could not go on another step! God bless you, Stevens Family Adventure group!

In His Love,

You know, when you put it that way, it's really quite a visual reminder of the many tasks we perform as wives, mothers, business partners, etc. etc.

Thanks for the word picture. It is definitely an honor to serve our Heavenly Father in this capacity - certainly not an easy role, as some would imply.

I am proud of you, Kelly. I know the Lord is giving you grace to do your best in each area. I know you have been faithful to cut back on the non-priorities and He has promised not to give us more than we can handle.

Love,
Beth
