About Me

I'm Stacy - a disciple of Christ, an Army wife, and a homeschooling mom to our 9 year old daughter. I spend my days doing fun science projects, going on field trips, cooking gluten-free meals, taking photos, reading, blogging & managing the home. I'm constantly behind on scrapbooking and have a never-ending list of sewing & embroidery projects to do, but there are only so many hours in the day.

I believe that shoes should always be optional, life is better at the beach, and chocolate is a necessary food group! More details about me & my family

Lessons from a child

I often learn things from my daughter – like that Asian elephants have smaller ears than African elephants, or that tarantulas can go several days without food.  God also uses her often to remind me how to be more like Christ.

Today, as we were doing our morning chores and getting ready to head out for the day I heard her singing.

“Hallelu hallelu hallelu hallelujah, praise ye the Lord! 

Hallelu hallelu hallelu hallelujah, praise ye the Lord!

Praise ye the lord, hallelujah!

Praise ye the lord, hallelujah!

Praise ye the lord, hallelujah!

Praise ye the Lord!”

 

I thought to myself that she was certainly in a wonderful mood and as I looked to see what she was doing, this is what I saw.

Yes, one of her chores is cleaning the cat’s litter box!  Not only was she doing it without grumbling or complaining, she was PRAISING the LORD while doing it!  What an awesome example, that girl!

Do everything without grumbling or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, “children of God without fault in a warped and crooked generation.” Then you will shine among them like stars in the sky. (Phil 2:14-15)

“Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.” (Colossians 2:23-24)
