chrissishields When you take your son to school only to find out school is canceled ~ you instantly feel like a terrible mother (or at least I did this morning) I try desperately to ignore my inner voice announcing my shortcomings I try and fail daily! I keep telling myself "give yourself grace" Romans 12:3 For by the grace given to me I say to everyone among you not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think with sober judgment, each according to the measure of faith that God has assigned. This verse just reminds me that i am not perfect - and the only way to be freed from my guilt is to give it to HIM and share my sins and shortcomings- only when I open my heart completely to him can accept his grace joyfully! ~ in reality it isn't about giving yourself anything it's about opening your heart to HIS grace even in tiny hurdles as these!
On another note Slayde wanted to read me his chapter book and he is doing so much better at reading! Setting down to read with him for the past 30mins has warmed my ️ and I feel Gods grace already!

  •   jack1133 Making one mistake doesn't define anything...it's not that black and white. But if that's what you focus on...that's what will be. Choose to look at being a mom as a whole. ---we will all make mistakes...but focus on what you do right. What you focus on will get bigger (future blog post) 17h
