self portrait

This is me this morning. Imperfect mess, saved by GRACE. Seriously. Sometimes I look forward at my day and just beg the Lord not to let me be myself. I never knew what a sinner I am until I had kids. They force me to be selfless and I am not selfless.

Here's to giving up trying to be the perfect Mom and trying instead to let God perfect the things He thinks are worth perfecting in me. Like patience. And peace.  Listening carefully for His voice rather than raising mine when Owen just won't listen and Asher is sitting on top of the kitchen table...again. It's going to be beautiful. Have a lovely day!
