Which one are you? Ok, I know, crazy question and do you know how to answer it? I didn't either until the question was posed to me this past week in my quiet time. In light of the new year and the decision to make some changes in my life, spiritual, physically and emotionally; I am reading a book in my quiet time about God's Power to change my life. What an eye opener for me! But back to my original question. So that you can answer the question for yourselves, let me explain them both a little more.

A thermostat, controls the temperature. It influences its environment; it sets the standard. A thermometer registers the temperature. It simply reflects its environment, whether its hot or cold. Which are you a - a thermostat or a thermometer? Are we content to just be a thermometer, simply registering the coldness and bitterness all around us, or are we willing to become God's thermostat in our own homes and lives? As women, moms, wives, and friends we can make the choice to be used as God's thermostat and provide His warm love to all that we meet if we make that choice! Hmmmmmm.....

Tonight I had one of those moments that God sent me a little reminder in the form of my little boy Colby and I just had to blog before I forgot it.
We were driving to Kendra's basketball game and an ambulance, and two fire trucks were coming towards us in the opposite direction. Colby says to me, "Mom we should follow them, someone might be hurt." I quickly explained to him that there was no need for me to follow them since there was nothing that we could do for them. He cam right back at me and said, " well we could pray for them." Ouch! A lesson relearned from my little 7 year old. And so we did right there in the car, prayed for whomever was involved.
I sure do love this little man and his great BIG heart for God!!
