To Love Christ

Bottom line: I want to see people growing in their love for Christ.

This is the goal. This is what motivates me in all that I do. This is my purpose in mothering, as a wife, for functioning in the local church, as I interface with neighbors in my community.

Oh, to see children, husband, students, friends and neighbors love Christ more! To see a passion for His kingdom reign in their hearts so that their decisions would be motivated by nothing less than a love for Him and a desire to see others established in that love. Anything else would be less, indeed. This is the only noble life-long call. This must be the motivation!

This is my life goal and always will be!

I've quoted it before but gladly do so again. A favorite hymn of mine:

When morning gilds the skies,
My heart awaking cries,
May Jesus Christ be praised!
Alike at work and prayer,
To Jesus, I repair:
May Jesus Christ be praised!

Be this while life is mine,
My canticle divine,
May Jesus Christ be praised!
Be this th'eternal song
Through all the ages long,
May Jesus Christ be praised!

Oh, may it indeed be so, in my life and theirs!

This is wonderful! I used to be like that. I don't know what drives me now... appearance? Comfort? I don't know. I know I haven't found a community of believers like CFC since I left. Some focus on emotionalism and spiritualism. Some focus on music. Others focus on themselves. And still others focus on church, and nothing much more. But, to have Jesus soley as the focus- I miss that. And it's true, like in what Jackie Card was saying in her latest post, those who you hang around have an influence. I see the difference in yours, Danica's, Louissa's, Jackie's, and Brietta's posts as compared to others. Truly, CFC is different. I wish I could enjoy regular fellowship with you all again, but I doubt we'll ever relocate to Potsdam (unless Sonny got a job at Clarkson). Love you!
