Another Mom’s Longing

Just finished reading Ann Voskamp’s post over at (in)courage and my heart is full. With two teenage daughters who are vivacious, inquiring, inspiring, and yes, sometimes challenging in their own ways, I pray for guidance for me and for them. So thankful that their daddy supports us with a wisdom I have never possessed. I am thinking of the torch passing from one to another and wonder, like many who have commented on Ann’s post, “Have I done enough? Did I do and say the right things? Can they forgive me for the times I’ve messed up?”

Hoping if you read this you will also read Ann’s post and be blessed.

Psalm 100:4: “Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise; be thankful unto him, and bless his name.”

    Oh, yes, which is why I’ve loved the scripture, ‘love covers a multitude of sin.’ We mothers always wonder if we’ve done enough, done right, etc…but as mine are all grown now with families of their own, and I continue to feel amazed and thankful for the grace they’ve extended me. It’s all grace.

    Thank you for visiting my blog – a delight to hear from you.♥

    Blessings,
    Vicki
