There are so many encouraging words to wives and mothers like me. I appreciate Sarah Mae’s godly perspective in every entry.
There are posts like these that completely blow me away.
When You Want to Defend Yourself – So perfectly describes my life right now. I just want explain every unfair or misunderstood situation to anyone who will listen instead of finding refuge in my God.
For the Lemon Pound Cake Nights – Unfortunately I get wrapped up in my own selfish thoughts of what I could be doing INSTEAD of wiping dirty bottoms, cleaning up the kitchen for the third time today, trying to teach a four year old how to blow her nose instead of sucking it all back in (really. I do need some suggestions for this one. Tried the blowing out a candle with her nose method – didn’t work). Don’t these kids know how smart I am (disregard the not-being-able-to-teach-my-kid-to-blow-her-nose comment for a moment and assume I am mildy intelligent)? I could be doing way more important things than this! And that’s where I am so wrong. I have dreamed of these days my whole life, and I need to be renewing my mind each day so that I can lovingly care for this family that God has blessed me with.
Messiness and Morality – I struggle with this one because I believe that my messiness is a result of my laziness, thus making it a moral issue. Plus, my husband values a neat home, and in my attempts at being a godly wife, I should be striving for this…
Anyway, I must retire for the evening now, and so I will end this Like a Warm Cup of Coffee lovefest. Thank you for your time.
