The other day I wanted Gabby to make Christopher's bed. You see, Christopher's bed is the first thing you see when you come into our house. His room is the very first room. ( we have a small house and have to make do with what we have)
I wanted Gabby to make Christopher's bed because Christopher was not home and some one was coming over.
So I asked Gabby "Will you make Christopher's bed for me please?"
She kinda huffed and said "well, Christopher would never make my bed"
I then explained how someone was coming over and and I just wanted the house to look a little more picked up.
She then said " I am not making this for Chris, I am making the bed because you asked me to"
AT THAT VERY MOMENT I saw a comparison of How we need to be serving and treating others.
I think how many times when in my life where I have not wanted to be submissive in areas, Mainly my marriage. Or maybe how many times I didn't want to do something because it was not my job or problem to begin with. Or when I did give and helped out how I felt I wasn't appreciated or the person was using the blessing I had given in a way I didn't think they should use it.
When we do something for someone else, we are not doing it for them, we are doing it FOR GOD!!
Gabby's reward was not coming from Chris, but it was coming from mom (me).
Gabby didn't have to rub it in Chris's face that she made his bed, sure she just would have gotten a quick thanks that might have been sincere, but from mom she received a bigger reward.
when we do something for somebody, and when you are truly giving with the love of God, you do not expect your reward to come from that person. It comes from God. (Matthew 6:1-4)

Well, It just feels like forever since I was able to do some pictures with Sophia. I just got a new camera and wanted to give it a whirl to see if I would be happy with it or not.
Since I don't have any paying clients (nor any subjects whom I would be more then happy to take pictures of for free...) I have to bribe my kids, and a new outfit and shoes was the perfect bribe!
It is so hard to believe she is 10 now...I remember posting pics of her when I had brought her home
here in the next few months I am going to be getting ALL THREE KIDS TOGETHER FOR PICTURES...(wonder what it will cost me?)
Thanks for letting me share...
