Happy Mother's Day!

My son, keep your father's commands and do not forsake your mother's teaching.  Bind them upon your heart forever; fasten them around your neck.  When you walk, they will guide you; when you sleep, they will watch over you; when you awake, they will speak to you.
Proverbs 6:20-22

As my kids' Mommie, part of my job is to teach and engcourage my children in the way of the Lord.  I love my kids and I pray for them constantly.  I should also be a good example as a Christian, in my speech, my actions, and my faithfulness.  It's so easy to try to teach our kids how they should be but don't we all know by now that they learn better by example?  This is an area I need to work on.  I'm not the most patient person in the world.  I get a little snippy when things don't go my not being able to find my keys while heading out the door, then realizing I didn't set the alarm after getting in the car, then getting back in the car and remembering I didn't grab the sippie cup, ugh!  It's these kinds of things that really test my patience, and I always fail miserably.

I want my children to grow up and remember what I taught them.  But I also want them to remember me being an example of what I taught them.  I want that to be binded upon their hearts, I want that to guide them and speak to them throughout each of their lives.

My kids are my life's sweetest blessings and being their Mom is the sweetest gift.  That is why I am One Blessed Mommie.
