…Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had and bought it.
I need to remember this… Everyday that Jesus Christ sold himself, every bit of himself for me. He sold every bit of himself for you too..
I have a tenancy to forget the power of Jesus. I have been in the need for grace lately… You know what that means… Mama’s been Grumpy… As I toss and turn in bed, speed down the street. or cringe as I sit at the table. I keep asking the Lord to get me through one more day. I hate this, I want to be one of those sweet Target mama’s, who are always smiling! Not… A Wal- Mart Mom , who are always screaming at their kids as they run down the aisle like wild banjes! I want to look at my kids with love at the end of each day, not with relief that it is final time for bed. Even the sweetest child can push a mama’s buttons to the very brink. This is real life, if my kids did not bicker then they would never learn how to deal with conflict in their future relationships. Thank God I don’t have to be the referee when they get married! But in all seriousness I am thankful that at the end of each day I can go to the Lord and ask him for the grace to get me through what ever store I might go to that day!
Take a moment… or a few to think back to your bedroom as a 10 year old little girl. I can remember mine only because with each vision also comes my mothers voice saying ” I hope one day you’ll have a daughter… JUST LIKE YOU”. Not trying to be sac religious, but OMG. REALLY MOM!!!! I have been blessed, with a little girl who is a princess pig pin. I know you all LOVE her. ( Get over it! ) For one post this Mom has had it. I spent my whole day cleaning out her pig pin… I am sure this must stem back to the fact Minnie’s imaginary friend was a “house keeper”. She really never learned how to clean ( so I taught her how today by doing it myself why she was at school…) I AM MY MOTHER!!! Again OMG! No wonder she thought “Sally”( her imaginary house keeper ) came when she was sleeping or at school… SHE DID!
How many of you hear your mothers voice saying something wise, or unwise everyday? I am now getting to… YES… “that age” when I understand my mother. The best part is I love it! The better part is, if I remember this tiny bit of wisdom. I will remember someday Minnie will hear my voice and love it too.
I have my air conditioning on and my doors wide open!!! Yes, I am cooling the outdoors!
Would you like to know of a time when I thought I was right? As a teenager , I know that I am right all of the time. I am right because a scientific study shows adolescents frontal brain is disconnected between the ages of 11 to 21. Because of this scientific fact I don’t have the ability to reason with you… I am always right just ask me!
All of you Mom’s out there know about the roll of the eyes and the “yes mom”. This was your choice… Right again! For that I am sorry you are always wrong. But there is a bright side to raising a teenager like….. ummmmmm okay there is not! But have no fear we are like puppies we all grow up!
Just because we don’t have mental soundness we arnt stupid (i spelled are`nt wrong on purpose), and to all the other adolescents out there. Quit messing with your parents because if you keep making those face’s your face might stay that way. Go look in the mirror. See I was Right again!!!
