All I wanted to do is talk about parenting -- how it isn't all sweet and joyful and excitement and designer clothes and wonderful memories and game nights and laughing together. That's what social media makes it look like.
Instead it often can be like someone sticking you in the heart and watching you bleed out through your eyeballs.
The thing is God does this parenting thing perfectly and all the time. That alone shows His power and His amazingness! I'm afraid to put a new paragraph because I'm afraid I'm going to delete this. Parenting has no coasting stages -- not even when the kids grow and lead their own lives. Oh Lord, how wonderful you are! Sometimes parenting just means you are going to get through in survival mode. If everyone is still breathing that is a victory sometimes. Hold on parents. You'll get through. I have to go before I delete all this. If you know why I am doing the deleting thing let me know!
