Beautiful Work

Let the beauty of the Lord our God be upon us, and establish the work of our hands…. Psalm 90:17a

Loving my children August 7, 2008

Filed under: Mothering — Kate @ 5:00 am

I don’t know that my children are all that different from me.  Sometimes I really wish they were!  It’s humbling to see my weaknesses come out in someone else, so raw and exposed.  As I work on the same issue with Sammy for the 15th time today, I know that it takes ME way too long to learn things and I constantly have to be reminded in order to change.  I wonder at the patience that God has with me!  Does Sammy have to be SO like me???  Many times in talking with my mom about the trails of the day I hear, ‘Sounds familiar,’ or ‘You used to do that.’  It gives me a new appreciation for my mom and for my God too.  I know that I need to be consistant in my discipline of Sammy to encourage him to be quick to obey, not only me, but God!
