Did you know that you are enough?  You are fearfully and wonderfully made.  Don't believe me? Read it for yourself: Psalm 139:14

I'm always trying to improve myself.  Lose a few pounds here, learn a new skill there.  I think it's important to strive for excellence. God hasn't called us to mediocracy, he's called us to greatness.  But we have to remember why we strive.

I press on toward the goal from the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. Philippians 3:14

We don't strive to bring ourselves glory. We strive so that we may bring HIM glory. I have to remind myself of that from time to time.  God blesses us so we can bless others. Not so we can become rich and famous and important. 

Back to being enough, you are enough. We have an ultra-competitive world.  And sometimes things that are supposed to be fun feed into this competitiveness.  That's why I loved this blog post (go read it but come back, k?)

I read this the day that I went with B's pre-k class to the zoo.  About a 100 times that day, he hugged me and said "I'm so glad you're here."  I hadn't thought about how little one-on-one time he gets with me (outside a doctor's office that is).  We had a great day at the zoo. Here we are:
Here's the whole family before Easter service
