Anyone else get convicted by their kids play? These girls are such mirrors of Mama's heart. Today that made me sad and pause.

Arwen was packing up her toys to take to rest time. she was impatiently cajoling her horse, Diva ( she named her), to hurry. I could tell she thought this was cool, adult behavior. It gave me pause and made me sad.

I feel I have been far to impatient with the little ladies in my house lately. It has mostly to do with Mama over committing at work which results in things piling up at home making me irritable. It also pulls me out of my mommy routine which I am better at when I'm more present than away.

It also gave me hope. For one, I noticed it and it checked an impatient word about to leave my mouth. also, a girl friend and I are going through Lysa TerKeurst's book, Unglued, together. I am thinking And praying through my emotions a lot right now.

I love these little beauties so much. I want them to see Jesus in my actions not my own selfishness. I am thankful He promises to help and is a God of second chances. I am thankful for the forgiveness of children and what they teach me daily about grace and mercy.


  1. Thanks for your honesty!! Not an easy job being a Mom- But yes how wonderful our God is He will carry you through. Take it from a Mom of a lot of shoulda coulda woulda's if I could go back!!
    You are a beautiful woman of God and Mom, wife. Love you praying for you always as you journey through this wonderful life God has blessed you with!

  2. oh, yes....I have heard myself come out of my children's mouths with much dismay. It saddens me too. I'm currently reading She's Gonna Blow by Julie Ann Barnhill. It's been so good and has helped me with my not-so-gracious moments as a mom. Love you. Thanks for your transparency!
