Do you enjoy your children?
Some days it is difficult as there is constant intervention and training of their words, their actions, their attitudes, their decisions, their behaviors, their characters...
Children are a blessing, straight from the hand of our Creator.
I cannot possibly care for my children without the constant seeking of Christ. I am such a selfish and wretched woman that when I attempt (foolishly) to mother them on my own, I fail so miserably. I am so rotten.
It is Christ that daily changes my heart.
It is Christ that daily prunes me. The 'branches' that He cuts away from me are constantly falling. Self-control assists in protecting the heads of my children from the falling branches...but not always.
God help me not only to take joy in my children but to truly enjoy each of my children every single day.
May you clearly, with no doubt, know the presence of Christ on this day that He hath made.
