a mother, full of grace


Live a life worthy of the calling you have received. Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.
The Holy Bible : New International Version. Grand Rapids : Zondervan, 1996, c1984, S. Eph 4:1-2
I'm learning to be a kind and compassionate mum. Completely humble and gentle. Long suffering/Patient. Bearing my family in love.

It's so hard. But it's what God demands of me. It's actually what God demands of me as a christian. Moreover, as a mother.
I know His grace is sufficient for me. His strength is made perfect when I am weak.
How do I be patient but not permissive.
Having boundaries in the house but still being gentle and allowing my kid to be free.
Spending a lot of time with him and still have quiet times with God.
Ah yes, I have to be thankful that there are still times when he'll be reading a book by himself, allowing pockets of time of quiet for myself.
Here's to our victorious days ahead in Christ!
