A Christian Mother is only happy when she knows that her children are all walking in the truth of the gospel. This is her lifelong mission. I'd like to share a story with you. It’s a beautiful story of redemption-starring our intellectual prodigal son, JP.
I have always said MOTHERHOOD is synonymous with guilt and self-loathing! This must stop! No more should we think, I wish I baked cookies every week like Sally does, or I wish I was volunteering at the school every day like Jennifer or got to stay home with my kids like Molly. 😊 This must end.
Today I’d like to share a little more about the birth order theory and how it may relate to what is going on under your roof. If you have more than one child, I believe you will be able to relate and hopefully will benefit from this post.
It was Christmas Eve 2013. I was busy in the kitchen chopping the salad, mixing fondue seasonings and fretting over each detail of our traditional fondue meal when my daughter, Maddy, called me into the living room. She had a surprise gift for me. I saw the size of the package and immediately knew what it was – telescoping fondue forks. I had seen them at the store the previous week. Sweet, but not tradition. I considered that Jody, her dad and keeper of all traditions, would not be happy with the change. Nevertheless, I put on my brave face and opened the gift. But as soon as I began to unwrap it, I realized that I was wrong. This was not trendy fondue forks. Instead, I found a picture of a POSITIVE pregnancy test!
One night, after work, I sunk to a new level of grief and sadness. I sat on the stairs leading to our kitchen and cried inconsolably. Jody wisely sat down beside me and began to comfort me with the truths from God’s word. He instinctively reminded me of God’s love and provision. He quoted verse after verse. Jody washed me in the Word and I felt my faith grow! Keep reading, new friend as I use this blog to talk about the benefits of living in a Godly marriage, a gospel centered marriage where Jesus is glorified each and every day regardless of the circumstances. Come join me in the pursuit of a Word Washed Life!
