What Is Man's Chief End?

Man's chief end is to glorify God, [a] and to enjoy Him for ever. [b]
[a]. Ps. 86:9; Isa. 60:21; Rom. 11:36; I Cor. 6:20; 10:31; Rev. 4:11
[b]. Ps. 16:5-11; 144:15; Isa. 12:2; Luke 2:10; Phil. 4:4; Rev. 21:3-4
THE WESTMINSTER SHORTER CATECHISM
Every new believer has been set apart by God, separated unto God to be transformed into the likeness of His Son, Jesus Christ. In this sense, every believer is a saint- a person separated from his old sinful way of life and set apart by God to increasingly glorify God as his life is transformed!

I'm Back... Finally!

>> Thursday, September 2, 2010

After being out of the blogging loop for the last 5 and 1/2 weeks, I am finally back!! I've missed blogging and seeing what my blogging friends have been up to. Being a new mommy has been extremely challenging and exhausting, giving no time to do the normal things in life. And of course, blogging is one of those "normal" things!! LOL!

So, what have I learned in these last few weeks as a new mommy?? I know you all are so anxious to find out, so here it goes.

First, dying to yourself is not easy!! Having someone who is totally dependent on you makes you realize quickly just how selfish you are.

Second, I miss sleep!!! Just to sleep for 3 straight hours would be a dream. No pun intended.

Third, having a colicky baby is not fun. And giving up all dairy foods for that colicky baby is definitely LOVE!! I miss my dairy.

And fourth, but not the last, having a family that helps is PRICELESS!!

So, hopefully I will be back more often to post. But taking it day by day will only be the way to go.

By the way, it has taken me 1 and 1/2 hours to type this short post!!! Oh well!

Until next time...

Hi Shellie! Glad you're surviving the newborn days! Those are THE hardest, in my opinion! Nice to hear from you and look forward to more posts, as time allows! God bless!!

Shellie,
First of all, let me congratulate you on becoming a new mommy! I remember those early days - so tough, so tiring. And yet, so rewarding! Hang in there - enjoy these early days as much as you can - they grow up SO FAST!! And always remember, your work as a mother is God-ordained and vitally important. Even when you're in the middle of dirty diapers, colicky crying, lack of sleep, etc - GOD is at work, both in you...and in your child.

Thanks for joining me on my journey - I am also going to follow yours!

Thank you so much for leaving me a comment. I will do my best to reply in a timely manner. Keep in mind that I am a busy, homeschool mom and wife, so please give me grace if I am not able to respond quickly.

Remember that this is a Christian blog, so I will not give any time to rude, inflammatory, or gossipy comments. We can agree to disagree, but only in a loving, Christlike manner.
