So as a girlmom, I feel SUCH responsibility to teach my girls to be grateful, humble, bold, gentle, confident, gracious, compassionate, loving, hungry for JESUS... and for justice...and for peace...and for love.
MAN! Parenting is a tough job. It's such a responsibility. Such a GIFT. One that I NEVER could have dreamed up in my head. The joy that I experience EVERY single day because of my 3 little beauties. The meaning that my life holds because of their lives and because of their dependence on me. The PRIDE that I feel.. in who I am in Christ. The confidence that I have discovered in...really EVERYthing about myself...because I am who God created. I am who I am because that's what God CHOSE to make me. And He CHOSE me to be "mommy" to Aves and to Camo and to Palmer.
I feel SUCH peace knowing that HE is drawing them to Him ALL the time. That HE will NEVER fail them....even though I do daily. I feel such an INTENSE and burning desire to do them justice in exemplifying everything that God calls me to be as a person, as a wife, as a friend, as a daughter, and as a mom. And I feel SUCH excitement at the thought of teaching and raising and correcting and loving on and enjoying and relishing in my 3 sweet babygirls.
It's a funny feeling to know that I am SO unworthy, but at the same time....to feel such trust in myself. Although...I guess it's less in myself and more in my God. I am just sooooo thankful that He loves me, that he created me, so that B-Riz and I could create and LOVE our little babes! Thank you Lord. May you CONSTANTLY be re-directing my path as I am CONSTANTLY stepping off the narrow course. You are so good, and I am so thankful. May my 3 daughters be PILLARS in Your Kingdom!
