the best mama


Elijah stopped playing with his Lego's and crawled in my lap. Kissing me and hugging me he whispered in my ear, you're the best mama in the whole wide world.



I let that scene play over in my mind while I rocked Amelia tonight. When she was finished drinking her bottled she curled her face into my neck and let me hold her. I prayed over her asking the Lord to give her a heart for him and begging his grace over my parenting. 

I fail a hundred times a day. I pray that even through my failures my children would see Christ. I pray that I wouldn't hinder them from walking with him. It's such a weighty responsibility, parenting. 



I dream of things I'd like to do, become a great photographer, write a book, travel, play the piano again, but none of my desires compare to being the best mama for my kids. I know that Elijah only thinks I'm the best mama in the world, cause he's four and he hears me whisper in his ear that he's the best Elijah in the whole wide world. But I do hope I can become one.
