I needed some encouragement today after having a really bad day yesterday. It seemed that no matter what I did both babies were not happy yesterday. I made sure that all their physical needs were met, I gave tons of kisses and hugs, but I could not put baby girl down for one second and my toddler kept testing the waters of disobedience. Baby girl is teething and I think going through a growth spurt, and my handsome boy is going through the 'terrific two' stage. This Bible verse gave me the biggest hug.
He will feed his flock like a shepherd.
He will carry the lambs in his arms,
holding them close to his heart.
He will gently lead the mother sheep with their young.
God understands my role as a mother because He created the role. He is guiding me as He guides my children. He is guiding my family. I don't have to be perfect. I don't have to have it all together, or be "superwoman". He is my shepherd and it is vital that I look to Him each and every moment as I navigate my role as a new mommy. He leads gently, He is loving, and He has compassion for me, you, and our children alike. I pray this encourages you today. You are Not Alone!
Until Next Time,
