Eeny Meeny Miny Moe.....

As I sat listening to my daughters doing the age old “eeny meeny miny moe” thing this morning, I couldn’t help but think how much easier it would be if I could do that. You know, eeny meeny miny moe between laundry, cooking, cleaning……reading, listening to music, watching tv……buy groceries, go shopping, go out to eat….you get the idea. Really I guess I do, at least for the unpleasant things! I make a “to do” list, and then pick & choose (eeny meeny miny moe) which one to do first or last!!
This led me to thinking about how GRATEFUL I am that my Father doesn’t do this to me! I mean really…..ALL His children are calling on Him (at the same time) in need, in praise, in general. As a mom to 4 I know how nerve racking it is for me when all this happens at the same time. How humbling to know that He hears me even when my “brothers & sisters” are calling out to Him too. He doesn’t play eeny meeny miny moe to any of us.
So this brings up the question (& I’ll end with this)…..why do WE tend to eeny meeny miny moe HIM?? We move Him to the LAST  on our “to do” list, we put Him off until later. I’m guilty of this so please know I’m not pointing fingers…..I’m coming up beside you the same.

Long overdue....

I have begun blogs before, but gave up before the first post (hahaha). Now that I've actually started a post - I'm committed! The purpose of this blog is to record daily/weekly happenings in our family life, share our passions, thoughts (& sometimes frustrations) on homeschooling, but most importantly to share our faith.

Ours is a home of 6 plus 2 dogs. My husband, Tim, is a teacher/coach. I'm a stay at home wife/mom, and homeschooling teacher to our 4 children. Christian is in 3rd grade, Dakota is in 1st, Nevaeh is in Kindergarten & Nicole is pre-k. Then of course we have our sweet dogs - Jersey Belle 2yrs & Bruiser 11 mos.

Just like every other family - no two days are alike with ours! We never know what is going to happen or what might be spoken - hahaha!! We invite you to follow along with us on the Bragg Family Adventures - never know what you'll experience WITH us!
