Who was I?: Part 2

Words from the heart are so much harder to write down.  It’s easy for me to share a recipe, tell you about something fun we’ve done in our homeschool or link to one of the wonderful projects in blogland.

But to open my heart and let the words slip out? Not so easy.

On to part 2…

Selfish.

How could that word fit me?  I help out a lot at our church, I homeschool our two children, I work hard at making a great home for my family…

Notice a theme?

Yeah, me too.

It’s the BIG I.

It’s all about me and my little family and my little world and my little dreams and my little comfortable world…{sigh}

Had enough?

Sound a little like you?

I was trying to live for my Savior and was actually living for myself.

Why would I say that? Let’s ask Him…

“If ye love me, keep my commandments.” John 14:15

“A religion that is pure and stainless according to God the Father is this: to take care of orphans and widows who are suffering, and to keep oneself unstained by the world.” James 1:27

It’s about more than having a nice life
