About My Title

This is a picture of the contents of my current "can't find a mate" sock sack. Do you have one?

I'm a stay at home mom of three babes (plus one 94-year old Grandad). I dread when people call and ask what I'm doing. Who wants to hear "laundry, dishes, diapers, floors" over and over and over again?

It's a struggle to find deep meaning in such things until I'm reminded of Col. 3:23-24 "Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward."

I like it when I can translate vague words like "whatever" to actually mean WHATEVER I do. Yes, even changing diapers and mating socks.

Take King David's mother or Moses' mother or Abraham Lincoln's mother. We know almost nothing about them and yet, they helped shaped the character of some incredible men. I'm shaping the character of some incredible people in God's kingdom. They NEED clean socks, right?

So, when a friend called in the midst of my sock routine, I finally answered, "I'm saving the world, one sock at a time." And, I believe it.

I try to remember that the smallest things are worth treasuring and are worthy of my best. Even all these unmatched socks.


  1. LOVE IT. So well-written, so true. You inspire me, girl.

    The blog looks FABULOUS! I love it!

  2. Look, I'm leaving you a comment! This is so cool!

  3. "I try to remember that the smallest things are worth treasuring..." I agree. I can think of 9 right off the bat. Have a guess at what (who) I am talking about? You are a pretty small package yourself there little lady:)
