What's a Mom to Do?

 I have been asking the Lord to teach me more about how to abide in Him. I know my Lord has a sense of humor because this morning was crazy. I ended up praying out loud several times (which I do when the girls are being particularly bad and I feel like I am going to lose my patience.) It's funny because praying out loud always makes the girls look at me dumbfounded and then somehow they start acting better as if they are scared out my "out loud" prayers. haha. Anyway, I am just waiting for the day when Annabelle starts copying those prayers. It will be hilarious!

 Anyway, I managed to snap some pictures because they were way too cute this morning for me not to. And all day I thought long and hard about how God is actually answering my prayers about learning to abide in Him by giving me no other option. My flesh hates having no control and crying out to God and depending on Him but my spirit just loves every second of it.
 I would never ever claim to be perfect or to "have it all together." In fact, right now, I think those are the very last things I would say about myself. But you know, that is not what I want my girls to think about me anyway. I want them to see me as a mom who desperately loves her Savior and that depends on Him for her every move.

I have been crying out for wisdom to God on how to parent my girls. He is teaching me little by little every day. I am so thankful for my God. He has blessed me with two precious little babies that He has entrusted me to teach how to love Him through how I live. I cannot think of any better or more important job. May I honor Him with how I parent and show the girls that when I mess up, it just shows me and them how much more I need to depend on Christ for everything I do.

That's all. Goodnight.
