(I have cried to Jeremy about this a couple of times….my poor hubby)
God sees as the most important calling....if that is the mission that He desired for me (which I believe to be true)
Now with my new breath, I can be a better wife and mommy
Look at my little Gracie Ann......She needs a mommy to prayerfully tend to her with great patience and great love
And of course it is my job to kiss her face at least 100 times per day! I am so blessed to be a mommy
Isaac calls this picture "Too many babies" because we were all bunched up on one small chair, laughing
In the words of St. Mother Teresa,
"There is NO such thing as too many babies......That would be like saying that there are too many flowers"
Two of my lambs......my oldest boy and my youngest boy...I love them so much and I am filled with gratitude to be with them still today
(I am trying to take more pictures of myself with my family, as I have never really liked pictures of myself (I was the "picture taker", and then realized that I needed to "get over" myself so that my family would have the memories of their mommy)
But I know that He is constantly revealing His holy Will for me, and through prayer and pondering, I confidently know that He is drawing out for me, His beautiful and new mission for my life.
(as He has so many times in the past)
I have to remind myself not to fall into the trap of feeling too wretched for our Lord to work through me.....that is false humility
Christ will work through ANYONE who allows Him to…..from the most famous and influential, to the smallest scrawny little soul like mine.
Through prayer, the word “SURRENDER” kept being repeated in my heart.
He is NOT ONLY desiring my time devoted to special prayer, fasting, and ministry......BUT He desires ALL of my time to do with, whatever pleases Him the most! And, to carry out His Will “JOYFULLY”......with total trust, not ever counting the cost.
For the devil is a smart and cunning fellow…..For he knows our weaknesses better than we do. So he does not tempt me with bad things, he tempts me with good things (tending to God's sheep) that keep me SO BUSY that my little lambs are left alone and hungry
I know that I will miss a lot of what He is saying and asking of me, because I am not always a good listener.....but I will continue to try my best. And, as I constantly fall down on the job of "Joyfully Surrendering" I will constantly get back up and try again.
