I've been thinking a lot about motherhood lately.
As a mother to young children, oftentimes I spend a lot of time wondering what sort of mischief will befall that day;
what awesome new things they'll do;
what new things they'll say;
what kind of amazing moments we'll have together.
And yet as I walk through each day with one small hand clasped in each of mine, I am well aware of how little control I have over their protection, future, and lives.
I do my best. They do their best. But the rest we have to leave to a sovereign God.
I don't often talk about my faith here on the blog because to be honest I grew up in an environment where pat spiritual phrases were overused. I tend to err to the side of silence.
But today I am thanking God for my children. And for keeping control with a perfect plan for our lives.
For giving me a beautiful little girl and a handsome little boy who are both perfect beyond my wildest dreams, for giving me the ability to mother them each and every day, for allowing our family to be as happy as we are, for protecting and loving us.
Today I am thankful.
pssssst: On Tuesday, April 2nd, get ready to see a brand new ebook on the market- "Diapers, Onesies, Stretch Marks- Oh My!" Yes I wrote it. Yes it's about new motherhood. Yes, I definitely think you should read it. More on this later....of course!
