All I want for mothers day..

Is to stay home alone most of the day. Sad? Well, here is my reasoning.

  1. I need to sleep
  2. My house needs my undivided attention
  3. If I can focus long enough to get things in order, I could sit and watch movies
And then of course, I would love to be joined by my husband and children while we go out to dinner, and get home and have said husband put the kids to bed all by himself. Then have husband give me a back rub and tell me I'm pretty and I'm the best Mom in the entire world...blah, blah.

I think come Monday morning, I would be feeling pretty darn good about things. :)

In reality, I know that I have 2 year old with a fever, a 9 month old with diarrhea, a house that is messy and I need to go grocery shopping. *sigh* I may not even be able to make it to church tomorrow :( But this is life, at the heart of it. Its the reality that keeps me on my knees asking God for His Grace. It keeps me humbled, broken and close to Him.

Who I Am

That is where God met me. He kept repeating the word 'Undone' to me....kept repeating the phrase "She's come Undone". And then it hit me like a wave, the tears flowed. I realized all that I have been trying to accomplish within my life, my marriage, my home, my parenting...it is all being done in MY own strength. God is calling me, telling me to become Undone before Him. To let Him do the work in and through me. To rely on HIS strength to accomplish all the great things He has for my life, and to be the Woman of God, the wife, the mother, the friend, the daughter, the teacher that He is calling me to be. With that, I am becoming Undone before God. I am letting go of the old mindsets that I have been setting for myself. I'm letting go.
