Long Day

We went to Legoland today with our homeschool group. It was a lot of fun for the kids. The last time we had gone was two years ago with the same group. The kids rode the rides, built cars, watched 4D movies, played in the play area, played Lego games, and enjoyed time with friends. I mostly sat around and talked to my mommy friends.

A lot of people requested the Bible reading schedule that I follow. It was really encouraging to see so many people wanting to read the Bible together. So far, I have been able to keep up with all the reading. I better have! I started on January 1 and it has only been two weeks!

Reading through Genesis showed me how so many people could be blessed because of one person. As I read, I couldn't help but see the way Lot, Sarah, Hagar, Ishmael, Isaac, and Jacob, were blessed because of Abraham. God kept pouring blessing upon blessing into Abraham's life, but there were definite times of waiting and testing.

It makes me wonder if I have been blessed as a result of the faithfulness of others in my life. I believe that I have. The harder question is: have others been blessed because of me? It is a really humbling question. Really humbling. That is when I realize that I have a really long way to go! I need more of Him and less of me...
