” For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong.”
“And me? I’m a mess. I’m nothing and have nothing: make something of me.
Sometimes the messes are caused by the children, or the time that it takes to care for the four of them. Sometimes, though, the messes are all my fault. I forget my priorities, my needs get confused with wants, and I skip my necessary duties to focus on something “fun”.
There are children playing and babies needing my time. There is a marriage that needs to be tended and if that means dirty dishes meet me some days when I wake up before the sun, then that is when I will deal with them. My story is my mess-the life that is being a mom-and the sweet lessons that have come from my children in my life.
Enjoy the mess and all that comes with it,
