Hey friends, I hope you all had a wonderful Mother’s Day weekend. I’ll take kisses any day from this wacky bunch. The days seem long sometimes but I wouldn’t trade them with anything else in the world.
The kids wrote me the sweetest cards and helped pick out flowers with Jimmy and had them waiting for me Sunday morning. This card from JJ cracked me up. Actually, all the cards were hilarious. He drew a heart full of chocolates because he knows what I like! I guess it’s what you call chocolates without all the calories 😀 I’m so glad he loves me all the time. ha!
After church, I had a nice, long nap and it felt so good! Seriously, sleep is precious and a gift all mamas could use. We decided to cater food from Roasters so no one had to cook or clean. We had dinner at my SIL, Linda’s new home. Since they moved in our culdesac, their home has become an extension of ours since it’s right across from us.
Love my sister-in-love! She’s the big sister I never had growing up.
I’m really thankful for these two mamas. Both are strong, prayerful, and loves their families with a fierce love. Btw, I created that little nook in Linda’s family room! I still need to share her family room makeover.
I know that this day can conjure up so many different emotions for everyone. Maybe you lost your mom or have a broken relationship with her so this day is reminder of that loss and wound. Maybe you’re struggling through the waiting of becoming a mother. I remember during a season of my life where I was feeling heartache when the idea of motherhood seemed distant and even impossible. Infertility can truly feel like suffering and yet, the Lord really stretched my faith during that season and gave me a heart for sisters in similar struggles. If you had a tough day yesterday, my prayer for you is this.
2 Corinthians 4:18 “We fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.”
I love this verse because it’s a reminder that though our present circumstances may be difficult, we can have faith in what is unseen and what is eternal. I pray your faith be increased and that the grace and peace that transcends all understanding would fill your heart with the knowledge of his infinite love for you. What I do know is that God doesn’t waste a thing. He uses all things for his good and he wants to use you, your life, your struggles and testimony for his glory.
Let all that you do be done in love. I Corinthians 16:14
