My two beauties

I still can't believe that when I look into my rearview mirror and see this sweetness...


and this serious cuteness...


..that I'm their Mama. It's a joy and I feel incredibly humbled that God has entrusted me with these two (and the one on the way!) to live out the Gospel in front of. I constantly fail as a mother who is to display this. But, it's my desperate prayer that the Gospel will take root in my own heart and that through this jar of clay, Jesus would radiate as the beautiful, all satisfying treasure that he is. Lord, please give grace to do this whole mothering thing!

These precious gifts have given this mama a good dose of her own neediness of God. I'll never be able to 'shepherd their hearts' unless his grace penetrates to the depths of their hearts. No matter how good or bad of a mother I am. And I'm learning it's a very good thing to be needy. My girls are teaching me this and I'm thankful for that blessing.

Now, to figure out how to get the glasses off this little diva without her throwing a fit...


...well, I'll figure it out another day. I want to enjoy these sweet-ain't-a-hill-to-die-on moments with my girls.
