And He said to me, My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.
2 Corinthians 12:9

Brownies Anyone? hopefully you weren't too grossed out by this pic of my sweet little girl..{ahem}.. preoccupied with something.

Just a classic moment in the life I live. When you're a mom or just around kids often, you pretty much become desensitized to certain things {grin}

Having a sense of humor is essential when raising kids....well it is for me anyway. I love to be able to laugh with my kids and I may even be caught being silly....ok, yes I can definitely get caught up in being silly..... singing, dancing, giggling right along with them.

Some days I look around and see that my floors need swept, I am waaaaay behind on laundry, and dinner is less than gourmet. But on those days I know that I was where I was supposed to be.....being a real part of the lives of my lovies.

No, not everyday is giggles and gumdrops. To be honest, being a mother is extremely challenging....on so many different levels. But despite that, I feel overwhelmed with blessings daily....4 to be exact. God has taught me so very much on this beautiful journey of motherhood.

Along with the trials and challenges there lies a deep root of love....deep down to my core. I know this can only come from God. Any patience I practice, any compassion I show, any forgiveness I offer, all is rooted in Christ. I cling to God daily to help me be the mother that He wants me to be, and that I long to be.

Through my triumphs and failures as a mother I am ever grateful to this special calling. I have so much to learn, and by God's grace I will grow. I am amazed how children can reveal so much about a person. God uses my lovies to make me want to change to be someone I am supposed to be more like Christ....and man am I a long way off.

 I will joyfully press on, collecting all of the kisses and snuggles I can get along the way.


  1. This was a perfect read for me right now! Thank you dear friend!

  2. You're welcome sister...I am so thankful to have another mama right along side of me on this journey.
