"Make it your ambition to lead a quiet life and attend to your own business and work with your hands...." 
1 Thessalonians 4:11
I really love this verse...
It makes me think.
It makes me want a simple life for myself, my husband, and my kids.
It makes me want to create, and be fulfilled by my creation.
It makes me want my kids to feel that accomplishment when creation occurs.
It makes me want to hold my tongue, and my judgement.
It makes me want to sit on my hands and shut my mouth.
It makes me want to be content with what happens in my "four wall family"
It makes me want to shut off the television and make mud pies.
It makes me want to close my bedroom door and turn over to his sleeping face.
It makes me want to stay in our pj's all day and paint, not caring if we get dirty.
It makes me want to eat great food and worry of the content not calories.
It makes me want to homeschool my babies, and give them a life they deserve.
It makes me feel like I need not worry and have faith.
It makes me think it is all worth it.

It makes me think.......
