Finish- Five Minute Friday

I never got the wardrobe memo for motherhood.  Black and white stripes, for a lifetime of refereeing.  I'm thankful that God gave me a natural whistle (also known as a loud mouth).

Some days (most days) I have no idea what I'm doing or what I've gotten myself into.  It's all I can do to keep on breathing.  To stay afloat.

God gave me these children for a reason.  He never makes a mistake, so I will once again, trust in Him.  He loves my children leaps and bounds more than my heart even loves... so I can trust Him completely.

I want to finish well... this thing called motherhood.  I know there will be many mistakes and heartaches along this journey; spilled milk and spilled out angry words you wish you could swallow back up and prepare for a more godly response.

On that jagged piece of holy criss-crossed wood, He spilled out His crimson blood and exhaled the most beautiful sigh....

It is finished...

Because He finished well, so can I. 

Just like the long hot days of harvesting, the fruit will come, sweet Mamas.  Don't be weary in well doing!  Press on.

Belong: Five Minute Friday

in your arms, is where i belong
you found me when we were worlds apart
you came to me and captured my heart

we've shared the same moon
and looked at the same stars
but now we can view them
holding one another close

you love me so beautifully
and even in the imperfect moments
when our emotions get the best of us
we understand one another

you are my home
my one and only love
you complete me in every way

i love your stolen kisses
and the way you look at me 
like you belong to me forever

because you do, babe
you belong to me
and I belong to you

we are home
when we are together
and we ache when we are apart

i'm so thankful we share the same moon
hand in hand
arm in arm
and not worlds apart
