If it's not one hurdle, it's two...

Okay, yesterday I barely cleared the "past" hurdle. In fact I think I bumped my hip as I went over. No sooner did my feet hit the floor and I am facing another. My parenting skills. They are not equipping me very well for the job I have to do. Satan is on the prowl. I feel like such an ineffective mother. There are moments when I feel good, but something quickly comes along and snuffs that moment out so fast, I think it must have been a mirage. I know this is all his plan; make me doubt myself and my life so much that I just throw up my hands and quit. I know I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Join me as I say that one hundred times tonight.

Sayin' it with ya, girl! I KNOW how that is. My parenting skills are lacking sometimes too. And what works with one child is guaranteed not to work on the next one--and throw the rulebook out for the third! ; )
Hang in there, girl. You're doin' fine. : )

I am AMAZED He allowed me to be a parent! Me is constantly refilling my patience, constantly talking to me through my children, and leaving signposts along the road.

Thank GOD we have Him!

I know this is a repeat--but being a parent is the hardest job you will ever love!
Hang in there--God will provide!!!
