This morning I watched The Heart of Christmas, the true story of Dax Locke for the second time. I first watched this movie last year about this time when it first aired on GMC (Gospel Music Channel) and let me tell you I cried like a baby and this time I did the same thing. I can honestly say that this time I watched it with more of an open heart than I did before because I found myself in the shoes of the character that Candace Cameron Bure plays. I’m the one who is too busy for my children, for my husband, and for God and it is all because I have decided to put other things ahead of them.
I have decided that I am going to Cherish Every Moment with my family and enjoy being a mom, a wife, a taxi driver and whatever else fits. I’m no longer going to put other things in front of my family because we never know when our last days are. I definitely don’t want to be the one wishing for more time with someone that I love because I didn’t take the heart to spend that time with them now. Today, I take the vow to change the way that I have been and become the woman that God created me to be.
I encourage each one of you to watch The Heart of Christmas and then come back and leave me a comment on what God is calling you to cherish. I know this is short but this is what God has laid on my heart to post right now.
Until next time,
