they’re growing up

September 9, 2013

mama and the big girlsmama and the big girlsmama and the big girlsmama and the big girlsMotherhood is a roller coaster. It’s exhilarating and scary all in one. I’m thankful for it and I learn everyday how to grit my teeth and trust God through it. I love it, but I know I need to continue to consciously fight to respond correctly and have joy in the midst of the crazy. And with 4 girls, there are a lot of crazy! I’ve been reading The Excellent Wife book with some other girls from our church family and it’s been so encouraging. I go through the day just trying to keep my head above water that I forget the joy. My focus is to just survive. I’m praying and learning how to do all things with joy, even if it means cleaning up the same mess ten times (this happens a lot!). I make a lot of mistakes and need a lot of grace and forgiveness. These girls are growing up fast and I don’t want them to learn from me to merely exist, but I want them to consciously have joy in God through all they do and do things that count. These are just some thoughts of things I have been focusing and praying on.

Here’s to a brand new week!
