Mother's Day


"Therefore, my dear sisters, stand firm. 

Let nothing move you.
Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord,
because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain."
1 Corinthians 15:58

Loving the little years; Beyond Bath time; Bringing up Boys; The Strong Willed Child...

These are the titles of books I've started and never finished, or want to read but can't seem to string the minutes together.  Because I'm IN the little years, giving the baths, bringing up boys and loving a strong willed child (or two)!  

I read this scripture and found the above video at (in) courage today, in honor of Mother's Day.  How fitting.

I have so much to be thankful for!  Children are my blessing.  Their pure love and innocent eyes for life are so refreshing.  But this job is not for the faint of heart.  When that scripture reads to "stand firm," I take that seriously.  Because there are days when I do not want to stand at all.

I've learned a lot being a mother.  This year I think I've learned how very much I need my Savior!  My weakness shouts at me every, single day.  I can't do this job of Mothering without my Heavenly Father, guiding me, leading me... loving me all the way.  I don't have what it takes to love.   

Praise God that His well is deep!  Thank you Father that you give Living Water.  Your love overflows.

Stand Firm.

I do it for them.
