Our temple.

I wanted to share with you something I read last night, that relates to my previous post about quitting doing the things that I don't want to do anymore.

"You will live forever in this body. It will be different, mind you. What is now crooked will be straightened. What is now faulty will be fixed. your body will be different, but you won't have a different body. you will have this one. does that change the view you have of it? I hope so.

God has a high regard for your body. you should as well. Respect it. I did not say worship it. But I did say respect it. It is after all the temple of God. Be careful how you feed it, use it, and maintain it. you wouldn't want anyone trashing your home; God doesn't want anyone trashing his. After all, it is his, isn't it?"

Fantastic! It wasn't until I was an adult that I began to undertand this concept. This was of course after I damaged my body (temple.)I now live with regret and the knowledge to teach my daughters to do things differently. Thank you for reminding me of this responsibility. Good luck with your challenges!

My story

Welcome to my blessed life!! Meet myself, a 32 year old stay at home momma. Meet hubby, who I have been married to for 14 years. We got married right out of high school, and while there have been many hardships, my husband is my best friend, and I wouldn't change a thing. We are living life with a 6 year old Grade oner, Gracie and 3 year old toddler, Alysha, which has its challenges, but we love every minute of it. God has blessed us with everything we need as well as tonnes of great friends and family.
