Present Over Perfect – Day 21

Today’s reading begins on page 115 – The Man in the Tuxedo.

Do you have someone in your life that inspires you to keep your family and closest friends a priority? Also, I’m learning different perspectives on my everyday struggles as we continue reading. More on that in today’s vlog.

  1. This was the hardest chapter yet for me to read. I am past where most of you are. I have regrets big time that I thought what I was doing was for my family but perhaps it wasn’t. I don’t know. My children aren’t Christians and I just wonder if we (at the time they were growing up my husband wasn’t either) if I would have had the support you all seem to have these days if things would have had a different outcome. But I know that God can do anything so we pray daily for them and their children. As I sat here feeling so guilty you did share the TrashoutTuesday event which got me to thinking that even back when I was teaching my daughter would come and help with my bulletin boards, we did them and had such fun together. My husband even came and was my aid and helped with the kids. So I guess I was thinking outside the box back then. Sorry this is so long but just needed to say to you young women, please do make your family you priority. Thanks Starr.

    1. Oh Maggie! Thank you for sharing honestly about this today. It’s not too late. I’m going to pray that God reaches in like only He can to your family and do mighty and amazing things. I believe He is using you as a light now to bring Him glory. Thank you for reminding us to keep our family as a priority. Don’t feel one bit guilty. Be encouraged that God is still able to exceedingly more than we could ever ask or imagine. I’m thankful for you!

  2. This chapter really hit home because I have already lived more days on this earth than I have left. Yes there are regrets, things I could have done better and some not so distant in the past, but I choose to live life to the fullest with what days God will give me. Maggie, I will be praying for your children. God is a miracle worker.
