I can not think of anything better than being a mom. I asked my mom the other day, "Do you remember when I said I was NEVER having kids?" She laughed. Can you believe it? Back in the day, when I was completely all about myself, my plan was to move to Atlanta and work for some big corporation. I thought I might get married, but kids were not part of the equation! When I think back on that, I first have to laugh. But my next thought is, "Thank you Lord". I am so thankful that He saved me, well, from me. Don't get me wrong, there are days when I think I will loose my mind if I have to change one more diaper, clean up one more toddler mess, or hear "I don't want to go to bed", followed by stomps and deafening crys! But, in the few seconds of quiet, when I look in on my sleeping children, two from my womb, one from the inner city of Chicago, and one from an orphanage in China, I just want to hit my knees in worship. I want to worship the Lord for His plan and His deliverance and for allowing me to be a mother to children that ultimately belong to Him!
My hope is that I would follow what the Lord says.
Deuteronomy 11:18-19 Fix these words of mine in your hearts and minds. Teach them to your children!
