Por Que No Post-os?

I haven't been posting much. There have been a bunch of changes going on in my life and in my home. Good changes. And I am focusing on them. So, I don't post as much. There is still lots of stuff rattling around, it will just take a while before it all gets out on this blog... can you stand the suspense?

Here is one thing that has been on my mind as well as part of the changes I referred to. It is a portion of Luke 6 that we discussed in Sunday school a few weeks ago. Jesus said:

27"But I tell you who hear me: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, 28bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you. 29If someone strikes you on one cheek, turn to him the other also. If someone takes your cloak, do not stop him from taking your tunic. 30Give to everyone who asks you, and if anyone takes what belongs to you, do not demand it back. 31Do to others as you would have them do to you.
32"If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? Even 'sinners' love those who love them. 33And if you do good to those who are good to you, what credit is that to you? Even 'sinners' do that. 34And if you lend to those from whom you expect repayment, what credit is that to you? Even 'sinners' lend to 'sinners,' expecting to be repaid in full. 35But love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back. Then your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High, because he is kind to the ungrateful and wicked. 36Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful.

One, of many, things that this passage made think about was how I spend time with my kids. When they ask for my time, so I shoo them off, or do I offer even more of myself than they asked for?

So, I gotta get. Someone is yelling "MOOOOOOoooooooom" right now.
