"...and her children shall rise up and call her blessed." (Proverbs 31:28)
Motherhood is a high calling, a divine blessing and such a responsibility. It is also a complete faith walk, as we are plunged into this new role when the baby arrives! No matter how many books we have read, or classes we have attended, the overwhelming responsibility and love we feel for that new life catches us feeling unprepared and unable to live up to our new role. But we press in and we press on, and we love. Who knew there could be this much love?
I was blessed with two girls, like the woman in this piece. I stumbled and fumbled. I fell down and I got up, and made it through with the Lord's help. People say what a wonderful job I did raising our two daughters, for they have turned out so beautifully. And you know what I always say in reply? "That's spelled G-R-A-C-E" Isn't God good? YES!
