The picture speaks for itself!(p.s. That's my nephew and my cousin-in-law.)

"I thought you just had a baby." "Did you have a boy or a girl?" "Uh, neither!" That's right folks in my lifetime, I have eloped in Las Vegas, had an afterwedding in Saskatoon(which my parents were informed they had attended). I am a social smoker and I have just recently had a baby but we're not sure if I had a boy or a girl, maybe had twins. I think it is interesting how no one knows who I married, but is certain I did and that I had a child, but no sex(literal and gender!!) LOL I crack myself up.

Ok but in all seriousness motherhood is not for the weary of heart. I often think of this verse.

Isa 54:1 NIV - "Sing, O barren woman, you who never bore a child; burst into song, shout for joy, you who were never in labor; because more are the children of the desolate woman than of her who has a husband," says the Lord.

I feel like I have a lot of children lately. I am watching them grow up in the LORD, but alas the only thing I am able to do is pray and encourage them to choose the Lord's way. I just want to shake them and say "Can't you see the path of destruction you are in?" But amidst all of this I see hope. I see people choosing the Lord and desiring to choose Him even if they can't quite cut those bonds yet. Mike was right when he said, "Demons are expensive to get, expensive to maintain and expensive to get rid of." The expense of getting rid of them is sooooo worth it.

So if you are reading this blog and are thinking she's talking about me, you're right I am, sort of. I just know that my prayer is for you to be free. I recommend this link if you want to know who you are and how God see you. He doesn't even reference Psalm 139!

Nothing compares to motherhood. Thanks so much for sharing with the many insecure first time Mommies out here. God Bless!

Plus you wrote this on my baby's birthday:) Motherhood is NOT for the faint of heart, true, but I REALLY hope for you to have the excessive joy/pain-filled blessing of having your heart torn out of your body and walk around as your child. You will love it. And I will help you;)

it's true that motherhood can be difficult but maybe the bigger picture is just letting God have control of your life day by day.. it would be terrible if I was expected to know what's next and how things were going to turn out for my family.. but I trust Him to know what's best for all of us and in the meantime I just go about living my life the best I can.. and yes, there are awesome rewards along the way.. God bless you
