This parenting thing is crazy and scary and I’ll be the first to tell you I’m not very good at it… at all. I lack patience, and get frustrated and am selfish and probably don’t do a lot of things nearly as I should. But perhaps that’s the reason why God allows us to parent His sweet, sweet little spirits here on earth. Because in teaching them about who He is, we also grow closer. We become more Christlike and catch just a small glimpse of the love God feels for us, as we love our children like crazy.So, at the end of the day, instead of checking off if I made dinner, or if the kids got to bed on time, and everything else I get frustrated with… I ask myself what I’ve done to bring them closer to God, and if they felt love from me. With those two things as a main focus, I feel like everything will turn out alright.
