I'm blogging daily in April. Learn more about the series here.
Today I want to share another's words with you, because her words were my grace interruption as I started the day yesterday. Sally Clarkson is an author and woman whom I greatly respect. Her Biblical counsel was used by God to change my life as a wife and mother. I can never express enough gratitude for her or to her. Yesterday she shared a blog post called, "Balancing Life and Controlling our Circumstances is not even Biblical!" Catchy title, right? Makes ya want to read. So I did and, boy, was I grateful.

And, yes, they complain when it's time to pick up!
Often it is tempting to make light of the comments and advice of those who have gone before us. We think, If I hear, "Enjoy them, they grow up so fast," one more time I'm going to scream! But I am learning that listening to our elders, anyone who is ahead of us in this little thing we call life, could be the very best thing we do for ourselves and our families. So today I leave you in Sally's hands, because I was so touched by her words yesterday and pray you will be, too. Life can always be meaningful; Praise God!
