Days like this

Have I used that title before?

Hmm . . .

I know I have talked about failure before so I'll skip the details.

Let's just say that the awful word . . . "failure" lurks at me around every corner - especially every mothering corner.

However, I am encouraged today knowing that it is in my failure and weakness that Christ can show His greatness. I don't have to be perfect (house, kids, looks, etc) to make a difference. I certainly need reminded of this today!

Phil 4:13 - I can do all things through him who strengthens me.

I am taking that verse to heart even though my efforts, next to those of others, (ugh! comparisons don't do anyone any good) look pitiful and dull.

I look up to you as a mother. You cook excellent (healthy) meals, are very organized, are very good about budgeting, and know how to handle just about every childhood illness! I could go on and on. To me, you seem like the perfect mother. You are always there when I forget things (like not bringing enough food for Isaac at Christmas--and many other things). If you're feeling down, you can laugh at your scatter-brained sister :)
