Thoughts on Mothering

I just don't have strength, ladies. I have been laying in bed for a week watching the second season of 24 * (thanks, friend!), and have no energy to do anything else. Malachi says, "I like it when you're not feeling well, Mama. We get to watch T.V.!" Thanks, Malachi. I love you, too!
Last night, though, I found my way to the Choosing Home blog and read deep into the night about the journey of motherhood. It is a struggle sometimes, especially when we are living far away from Jesus. Without a *close* relationship with Him, parenting is really trying. I'm sending you to the blog to read these articles because often times mothers feel alone in their struggles. I know I sure do. The first one hits the closest to home. The second is a parenting philosophy I whole heartedly agree with, and the third, from BlestWithSons, is how I used to feel. God answered my prayers, and now I am a part of the body of Christ that actually *works*. And by that little word I mean, I feel a part of It, finally. The older women are *Titus 2* women, and the younger women are being encouraged in their God-given roles. Oh how I love Grace Church! Anyhow, since I don't have the time (because when I have the energy I do have three little kiddos to take care of!), I'm sending you off to other women whose insights are powerful and helpful to the soul. With love...
