Sometimes I wonder. . .
Am I the only mom who constantly finds socks all. over. the. house?
Socks here, socks there, socks everywhere.
Socks belong on feet, in a drawer, or in the dirty hamper, right?
Not so in this house.
Socks are strewn throughout. Simply left wherever they are removed.
Here are a few photos taken moments ago displaying proof of our sock chaos. . .
Hmmm. . . better add this sock training to our morning table time, huh?
Training. . . I’m always a bit afraid that I may forget to instruct my children in some basic task. Such as, “Wash behind your ears.” (I think about this one frequently when I’m taking a shower.)
Or, “Don’t put a knife inside the toaster!”.
Have I said all I need to say for their safety, health and welfare?
Have I trained enough and instilled Godly character and principles into them?
And then I remember this:
Your children will become what you are; so be what you want them to be. David Bly
Now that gives me pause.
I’m God’s work in progress and whatever good is in me now, or will be a part of me in the future is from Him, through Him and in Him.
Only by His grace, love, patience and wisdom will I ever be what I want my children to be.
And I realize. . .They are each His work in progress and all the good that is in them now or will be a part of them in the future is from Him, through Him and in Him.
Only by His grace, love, patience and wisdom will my children ever be what I’m desiring them to become.
