The life of a mom is certainly enough to leave you feeling overwhelmed. How thankful I am to not be relying on my own strength, but on His. Otherwise I might just curl up in a ball and go to sleep!

My gracious favor is all you need. My power works best in your weakness. So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may work through me. Since I know it is all for Christ's good, I am quite content with my weakness and with insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong. 2 Corinthians 12:9-10

  1. My brother is staying with me right now while my husband is in Africa. I laughed when he told me how overwhelmed he felt after spending a few hours with me and the kids. My following thought was..."and most people think that I am twiddling my thumbs at home because I am a stay at home mom!" haha
