Fake Life vs. Real Life

What if we were real?

I had a free afternoon yesterday, it was a miracle.  No ballet for my girls, no baseball for my son, it was divine.

So, I created a crazy activity of our own and we planted a potted vegetable garden.  We spent a glorious afternoon digging in the dirt, and I sent this perfect little picture to the Grandparents of my angelic children learning about gardening.

 

But, the real picture behind the scenes?  My 3 sunshines were spraying each  other with the hose, which they quickly turned on me. 

Just in case you thought everything was always perfect in my world…think again.

Not Perfect. Just real.

Bold Prayers

The greatest tragedy in life is the prayers that go unanswered because they go unasked.   -Mark Batterson

I saw that quote on a friend's Facebook page today, and it made me think about what I'm not asking for.  In my heart I know that God knows my desires, but at the same time, I think He wants me to talk to Him about it.  I want to be bold with my prayers.  Ask for things I think today might be out of reach, but who knows about tomorrow.

"Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you." -Matthew 7:7

What bold thing could you start praying for?
