She's had seven kids, so I figure she kind of knows what she's talking about.
I get weary. A lot. And I often question if I am even "doing good." But I have to remind myself that the best doing good that my kids can see in me is a mom that does fall short... that they see that I need Jesus. I fail on a regular basis. It's so easy to get focused on the failure and try to find ways to try harder. I don't need to try harder. I just need Jesus. More of Him, less of me.
Speaking of, I can't wait to read this book ("Grace for the Good Girl: Letting Go of the Try-Hard Life"). It comes out in September.Even just the book description is convicting and encouraging. :)
Not a whole lot of point to this post... just some of the thoughts bouncing around in my head today. :) Lil' Sabby is sick with another fever virus, and Ariana looks like she's starting to feel crummy, and because of that, the little girls' and I just had a laid back day. Sabs helped me paint a bench (while the Tylenol was in effect), we sung some songs together, and just kind of poked around while enjoying the sunshine.
It's a mixed media canvas using the Happily Lost line of papers.
