club mom tomorrow

I don't know about you guys but I sometimes wonder if I'm screwing my kids up.
As moms there are so many things to think, education, health, character, am I disciplining them correctly, what kind of people will they grow up to be, will they love Jesus and serve Him? 
 I have often wished I could look into the future to see how they turn out.......just a glimpse ??? :)
Do you ever have those thoughts?

Join us tomorrow as we discuss this stuff and find some encouragement in God's Word. 
We will also be making some bird feeders. :)

I received an email from my sis saying I had to read a certain blog post from a blog. So I did. I thought I would pass it on to you lovelies and pray it encourages you as well. Here is just a smidge of it, go here sharplife to read the full post. :)

The older I've gotten, the more relaxed I've gotten. There's a reason for that: I am not defined by the state of my house or how nice my kids are to me. My kids are sinners just like me. They don't mean to be unkind to me. They don't try to hurt my feelings. They are just like me. I don't try to be selfish or say mean things to people. But I get caught up in my own little world and before I know it, I've hurt someone. That's what they did to me. Poor things. They had no idea why I was so angry with them all the time.

I mentioned this to them tonight and asked them if they remembered it. Nope. Not even a little. They have no recollection of a messy house or a screaming mother. They remembered the walks we took in the woods and the trips to my mother's house. And today, my two oldest, at different times without knowledge of the other, came to me, hugged me and told me thank you for all the ways I helped them today.

I wish I could tell my younger self to hang in there. One day, they get older and become aware of you as a person. One day, all that housework becomes second nature. One day, they clean up after themselves. One day, they look down upon you and say "Thank you."

God's grace is sufficient. For my sin, for my children's memories, and for my heart. He is making even this right. Redemption is a beautiful thing.
