So, I gotta talk to ya'll about something. For all of you ladies out there that share this role of Mom it will come as no surprise that it is without a doubt the hardest thing I've ever done....and it is also the most WONDERFUL thing I've ever done.....and it is also the scariest thing I've ever done. Being responsible for another human being is incredibly overwhelming at times. Especially considering my huge limitations at it. My humanness steps all over my wanna be perfection all the time. God has been talking with me about the importance of family in the past year or so....I've shared this before. I long to be the Proverbs 31 woman in every way.....knowing I will never get there this side of heaven, I just want to be able to look at my life and see growth. I want to pay attention to every moment of their lives and savor those moments. I want to really KNOW each of my children and their likenesses and their differences and love them accordingly.
One of my biggest struggles right now is the bickering that goes on between my girls. They fight a LOT lately.....seems like constantly. We wake up to arguments and sometimes even go to bed with arguments. I do believe that some arguing is part of childhood but I feel like at my house it has gotten out of hand.
I'm leading a study at church right now on a book called Don't Make Me Count To Three. It is a great book and I recommend it to every mom out there. It is all about getting behind the behavior to what's happening in the heart. To the sin nature of our children.....to making them aware of that and bringing them to a place where they can really evaluate their own behaviors by looking at their heart issues.....Parenting by The Book. It is great and I am learning a LOT!
And there is part of me that is wondering......is God giving me opportunity to practice what I'm
Maybe it's both.....what do ya'll think?
