That means my house isn’t always tidied
It means it’s not always clean to the standard we would like
It means that some day to day stuff doesn’t get done
Having 5 kids means we have extra hands
It ALSO means we are investing in 5 lives…
At an intimate level… growing who they are
We’re growing young leaders… who aren’t easily swayed
We’re creating adventures… and the explorers who are curious enough to want to have the adventures.
People who care about the people and community they live in.
People who walk humbly and have strong faith in God
I know what I want to invest in…
And I can always clean, tidy and vacuum tomorrow
We don’t live in muck and rubbish… but what I am saying is that when there are days that my kids need more attention… or are struggling… they get our attention first.
On tough days… our house is a mess…
And do you know what???
We are OK with that…
Because at our house… life is about people not things.
Our house is tidy OFTEN
But if you pop in and it’s not tidy… it just means we have been investing in other things!
