Can I have my pie and eat it too?

Can I have my pie and eat it too?

What are the things that we want? Everything!!! We’ve been told that we can’t have our pie and eat it too. What does this mean? Why not? I want my pie! I want something nice and pretty to look at and say i did that. But then, i want to eat it too. I want a job that I can spend time with my family doing the things that we enjoy, while still having a fulfilling career that gives me the all important dollar needed to pay the bills. Why have more people not found the “good” life? Does it really exist? Maybe, but it WILL take hard work, frustrating days and maybe even more blessings from God than you or I deserve to get it.

   But tell me that these boys aren’t worth it! My son’s could have grown up in a home without loving parents. They are lucky to have been born at all in the abortion era, but God has seen fit that we raise them. He wants us to raise them, so there must’ve been a reason.  I’m betting it was to get Jenny’s long-suffering attitude. She’d say so they can be stubborn like their father.  I’m not sure what they will actually get from us, but I hope a strong love of the outdoors is one thing, a trust that; no matter what, their parents love them, and a gracious view of what they have been given. Can we have our pie and eat it too? I hope so! It may take twice as much work, but I feel it will be worth it. Don’t you?
