yes that is a light saber, but not just any light saber. that is w's favorite toy. it causes destruction and defends us from the evils of the world a 6 year old mind understands. and then there are the jacks and ladle. those are from the kitchen of sweet baby n. who loves to cook and does not relinquish the ladle very often. and the jacks, those are not jacks. that is a culinary masterpiece that she created just for me. and let's not forget the binoculars because my g man put those there. he was and always is "looking (or wookin' and he says it) for me".
these precious items were placed here by 3 little ones that have revolutionized my life. they have taken a once very selfish (i can now categorize myself in the moderately selfish category, praise be to God. and yes He is still workin' on me) person and changed me into this sentimental, humbled, would lay down my life in a second, blubbering girl that i swore i would never be. yes mother sadly i know this sound like you:).
and while sleep was the only thing that i wanted last night before my head hit the pillow. after it did, all i could think of was...wow, God you are so good. and why me? and how can i take the imperfect person that i am, so flawed and filthy and honor you oh Lord with every breath that i breathe. so for me it took a light saber, a ladle, some jacks, and binoculars to put it all into perspective yesterday. what is the Lord using to work on you?
