I firmly believe I am called
to be a stay-at-home,
homeschooling wife for my man
and mom for my 3 Es.
Actually, I know I am called.
Just as dear friends of mine
are called to be in the classroom,
the court system.
We aren’t all called to the same thing,
but we are all called to follow where He leads us…
at a personal cost and with a personal blessing.
The cost for me? Funds.
We have less disposable income.
The blessing for me? Time.
I have more time to give to my family.
Yesterday, Eric and I took time to search for new shoes.
As stood and watched him at a wall
covered with footwear ranging from
affordable to astronomical, my heart constricted.
In times like this, the cost of my calling becomes
very evident to me…
and to him.
Yesterday was a life lesson day for both of us
and one that I hope he will some day fully understand…
a calling isn’t a calling
without a cost to yourself
and the blessing always comes after the obedience.
