“It is natural and good that we delight in the little things with our children. God didn’t command mothers to rejoice over elbow dimples and the smell of a new baby’s head. He didn’t tell us to smile over them while they sleep, or to love the way they look in footie pajamas. He didn’t tell us these things, because He didn’t have to. That is the natural love of a mother for her children. But the love that we need, the reminders we need, is to love them, not for our own sake, but for what God is doing through them. We need a supernatural love. We need to believe in the victory, to mother in faithful confidence. …These mouths we are feeding — these are the mouths that God has ordained to use to silence the enemy.” -R. Jankovic
Happy Birthday to our Mama dear! Thank you for mothering in faithful confidence. Thank you for teaching us to love Jesus with our whole hearts, to work hard, be joyful, and follow him- even when a leap of faith seems to be your only transportation.
We love you dearly! XO, Kayla
