One of the most difficult challenges that I daily face is forgetting – forgetting the good, forgetting the sweet and pleasant and purposed – and then I am all the of the sudden derailed by the bad, bitter, unpleasant, and thwarted.
The Lord calls us to remember, remember that He is the Lord your God, remember His commands and obey them, remember in order to LIVE.
With Mother’s Day soon, I want to chronicle some of the lessons the Lord has taught me over the past 40 months that I have been a mommy. I want to remember the goodness and faithfulness of the Lord in my life through this new-life that I am living. I want to remember all that the Lord is making me – NEW – and all that He has given me in Christ and through my sons. I want to remember, and to live.
I chronicle some of my lessons learned because I want my children, as they grow, to know their mommy loves them and loves that being a mommy is a life for a life. I want this to be for the day when each one of them hopefully walk through the threshold of parenthood. And I want this is for you – to encourage you, to remind you of the Lord and His goodness, His faithfulness, His providence — to Him be all the glory and praise and adoration.
That [our lives ] may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ. – 1 Peter 1:7
