a mother's prayer

As I looked through these photos, I thought and silently prayed, "Oh Lord, please help me to be a good mother to these beautiful boys." My heart is aching and yearning to be a better example in front of them. I want to nurture them and never halt what gifts they may have. It is so difficult to discipline firmly and expect obedience, but to also honor them as individual persons who God created. Oh Lord, please help me to be a good mother to these boys. Sometimes, the task seems so great and I know it is only with wisdom and guidance (and by His Good Grace) that I can be the mother God has called me to be.

I echo this prayer of yours!!
Yes, they are watching everything we say and do. It's quite daunting knowing that what they see us do(and hear us say) affects their characters.
Fortunately, His grace is always present ... as we are bound to mess up now and again!

Thanks for a great post!
