Welcome and Blessings!

Thank you so much for stopping by! I have named this blog "Running to the Cross" because that is what I often find myself doing...running to be with my Lord Jesus! I often cover many aspects of life on my blog, as it is my journal. I used to write things down in all sorts of notebooks, but my writings would soon be lost. So I decided that it was time to start a blog and share my thoughts and ideas with others. Many topics you will find here are prayers, homemaking and organization, children and pregnancy, funny stories, and the challenges of parenting and motherhood. If you enjoy my blog and leave me a comment, you are likely to have me visit! I love meeting others and gleaning from the lives of others. May you be blessed! Your friend in Christ, Heather

Easy Button

Is there an easy button that I can push to make my day go smoother...

An easy button that makes...

  • sweeping floors easier
  • washing clothes in the washer easier (as mine kept going out of balance today...had to babysit it)
  • hanging laundry out on the line easier...without the threat of being infested with ticks & chiggers
  • getting little silly girls down for their naps easier
  • having children help with the tasks around the house easier (without the distraction of a snake eating a frog)
  • getting to eat lunch ON TIME easier
  • getting baby girl to sleep easier
  • getting the house in order for daddy easier
  • keeping the room that was just cleaned clean easier
It sure would be nice if our homes had a reset button like our computers...that restarts everything fresh & new... of course it would have to reset the house as it was the last time you completely cleaned the entire house... ;O)

I just want to push the easy button or the reset button... then I can keep up with all the work, HA! HA!!!

Lord, give me patience,
Lord, give me speed,
Lord, help me with this day,
to give hubby what he needs!

Yes, I desire to snap my fingers, just as Mary Poppins and Jane and Michael did in the nursery and snap! Everything was clean!!!

Make sure to visit my blog soon to read my new post.....

Take good care of yourself and thanks for praying for our Sofia as she went to the ER...she is fine by the grace of God AGAIN in our lives!!

I completely agree...I think reset is what I need too! But then what would we do with our time? I see that God gives us all these things to do and learn to manage & then blesses us with more.
I don't pray for patience:
"And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience;"
Rom. 5:3
But wanting to have it, I pray for strength to do all I need to do.
"Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest."
"Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls."
"For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light."
Matthew 11:28-30

I guess in Christ is the "easy" button! :)
Blessings always to you!
