As I was looking for pictures for Mili's timeline of her life for school, I stumbled across this post from 2007 after Sadie was born. I thought I should share it again.
This is still my prayer for my life......
As Sadie Beth smiled at me while I was bathing her, all I could think of is how blessed I am and do I deserve it? The answer is NO! God has blessed us far more than we could ask or imagine Him to.I thought I would share my prayer to God today.....
Dear Heavenly Father,I come to you with a heavy heart and a happy heart. A heavy heart in that I feel so responsible for raising the two wonderful daughters you have so graciously loaned us. I want to show them how to love you with all of their hearts on a daily bases but I am afraid I don't everyday, for that I am sorry. Some days I feel like I am just surviving and actually teaching them something feels impossible. Please help me to show them your love anyway.
I also feel the responsibility of supporting Brian but when he arrives home most days I am still in Mommy mode. Please help me Lord to give Brian the time and attention he deserves without feeling like it is one more thing I NEED to do.
I also need some quiet time with you God. Please give me that time without screaming children (I know you still preform miracles so I am counting on it). Help me to retain your word so I can share you with others who have not yet found what it means to truly LIVE.
I have also come to you with a happy heart Lord. I am so thankful for my sweet family. Brian is wonderful with helping me get the girls ready to go places and ready for bed. He will even bathe the girls if I need him to. Thank you for the quiet time Brian and I had together the other day to just sit and talk with no interruptions. Thank you for two beautiful girls who have stolen my heart.
I feel so blessed, Lord, but please help me to live wisely for my family and others around me to see YOUR love shining through.
I ask all of these things in your mighty name, Jesus , Amen.
I felt like I needed to share my deep feelings today, so I did!
