I heard this quote a while ago, and it has stuck with me.
I am not quite sure who said it, but I love it.
(this is an 8x10 printable for you)
When I hear this quote, I think of my sister.
My sister, Jen, has multiple food allergies
yet, her faith in God never wavers.
I am able to watch her do REALLY
hard things, and all in the strength of the Lord.
Does this picture look hard to you?
Taking 8 kids under the age of 7,
and 1 on the way, to
a nice restaurant like Tucanos?
Guess what! It was hard!
It would have been "easier" if just the adults would have gone,
We would have missed out on precious family time-
Our kids wouldn't have learned how to act at a
restaurant at a young age-
We wouldn't have made the waiters smile at the
fact that a 6 year old boy & 7 year old girl
could each eat 13 pieces of shrimp.
In the end, our children were so well behaved.
They learned, we learned, & we
all had an experience we will always remember.
The Lord gives us strength in ALL that we do!
Being a Mom
Being a Friend
Being a Co-Worker
Being a Teacher
Being a Daughter
Being a Sister
and, more than anything-
Being His daughter in all that he needs us to do.
