Sea World

Over the last several years, my life has been a constant rotation of activity. There was always more work to be done. Another activity to plan. Another meeting to attend. More clothes to wash. More hair to comb. More. More. More. I saw time speeding up and moments slipping by. In spite of everything I had going on within and around me, I knew that I needed to make another commitment. I needed to commit time to my oldest daughter. So I did. I made the commitment to attend her 8th grade overnight trip to Sea World in Orlando, Florida. Nothing was going to stop me from going, not my job or any conflicting schedules.

When I received this picture from my daughter and saw the smile on her face as she thought about the trip, my tears began to dwell up. I knew that I made the right decision to commit to her. There are some moments that we will never get back. There are many awesome memories that we have yet to create. It’s important that we commit to the things and the people that are right and the things and the people that are good. “I would seek unto God, and unto God would I commit my cause.” – Job 5:8. God will direct your commitments if you let him.
What are you committed to today?

I needed to find a daycare, drive by schools, and establish residency. All of this was to be done with three kids in toe, all under the age of five.

I was up to the challenge. One afternoon in August, we were headed out for errands. Once I got to the car, I realized that I didn't have any water. I ran back upstairs to our apartment. When I opened the freezer to reach for a bottle of ice cold water, I was stopped in my tracks by a ring box and a note.

Yes! This man left his family behind for me.
