Today, at the dinner table, talking about this and that, five year old Mary said: "God made you a momma...and gave you these children."
Yep! He did....and with it the grace to love rightly. Thank you Lord.
I have been reading a book, The Shack..I cannot rave about it enough. Among other things, it has given me a picture of my relationship with God the Father, Jesus the Son, and Holy Spirit far different than I have ever had.
Also, a better picture of myself.
Yes, God planned from the beginning to make me a momma of these children and the power, love and grace to do it.
